Jetting at altitude

Anybody living at a couple thousand feet who could enlighten me on their jetting setup? I'm moving from the DC area (Sea Level) to Ft Huachuca, AZ (~4500'). I know I'll need to go leaner on the mains since I fattened them up when I drilled all the baffles in the exhaust. I'm thinking 185/185 is a good place to start, but should I go leaner than that? Any suggestions?

Sidenote: Luckily, since my wife's V-star is still running stock (read: lean) jets, I won't have to worry about that one at all...

180f/182r would be a good place to start, but you don't mention the mods you have.

PS Time to update your profile.

Glad to update... No longer here in DC?? Hell yeah! That and my age being a bit off...

As for mods, I've got manual CCTs, -1/+0 on the sprockets, a self-drilled set of stock mains, stock needles shimmed 2mm, Bafflectomy + drilled inner baffles 2 and 3, and removed airbox snorkel. I'll check on the thread about running even sized mains again (I didn't follow it past the first couple posts), because I'm not sure I 'need' to run the slightly richer rear. Really a non-starter though, since it's the same operation to change them both out anyway...

Thanks for the suggestion Greg. I went with 178/180, since they couldn't find a 182 in the Honda catalog (they had a 185). Still a taaaad rich at WOT, but only in 5th or 6th gear at high revs, so I'm thinking I'll leave well enough alone. I may come another half turn out on the fuel screws, but the WOT should be fine when I head down the thousand feet or so to Arroyo Seco in Deming NM, so I'll leave the mains alone.
