How high (altitude) have you ridden your 700xx at?... Not how high were YOU when riding your 700xx. How did your 700xx respond to high altitude?

For me, that would be 6,247' at the top of St. John mountain... I adjusted my EHS controller a bit leaner (.5) at about 5,000' and it ran just great. My riding buddies with carbs were running crappy near the top. Haven't been able to try some of the higher areas we have here yet... real heavy snow pack this year in the Sierras.

Show me the numbers...

Ya my first thought was how high you have been while riding, then figured it must be how high you have jumped. I was way off

I live near the coast so the highest I've been was 2k feet or so :-/

Rode flat out at above 13,000 at Breckenridge, CO last year. I didnt notice any real loss of performance on the mountain peaks. Just rough rocky trails that tore up my ITP holeshots. The only performance mod I have is the slip-on FMF exhaust. Honda dealer told me that due to riding at altitude, I wouldn't need to install a programmer and he was right. I ride between 6000 to 13,500 ft with no noticeable performance issues.

14,000 ft. Mt Antero, Colorado. Its one of the only places the Dems haven't taken away that you can ride above 14,000ft in the US.

Nope, that's papa with his sons at Pismo doing the beer bong... the other pic is the result of way too much beer... at least he found his chain. :surprise:
