If you are happy with the current jetting, leave it be. It sounds like, with just a slight pop, that it is not overly lean with that pipe.
The CV carburetor will do a pretty good job of adjusting for altitude by itself. The slide is dependant on vacuum, and therefore air density, to rise. With a lower air density the slide will rise less, admitting less fuel. You'll be down on power, but your mixture will be right.
At higher altitudes, a direct pull carburetor will admit too much fuel for the air density at any given slide position and will run too rich. CV carbs don't work that way, so it's not an issue.
My riding takes me from sea level to 10K feet and I never change anything in the carburetor.
