I am not the expert but will offer my "opinion". I live at 4500 ft. I have a '00 wr 400, stock jetting. I just recently added the white bros E series, s bend. I have no problems whatsoever. I have ridden as high as 6200 ft where it did a little backfiring but that was it. I rode all day today at about 2500 ft. All went well. My motto, "If it aint broke, dont fix it".

Just for info, the only time I have noted any loss of power or lack of performance was when it was 30 degrees outside. Bike felt sluggish.

Hope this helps.
