4000 is perfect for that motor. 7800 rpm should be your max shift out rpm.
Elevation has nothing to do with the engagement. Does not matter if you are at 1100 or 7500.
However the spring weight combo is what is going to give you the proper rpm when you are up there. If you do have it clutched for 7500ft, it will probably over rev a bit at your lower home elevation.
Can you take it for a rip at home and see what the revs do?
Is the motor stock?
What did you put in for weights, springs, etc.

I'd suggest either asking your dealer for a photocopy of the clutch settings for different altitudes or getting a factory service manual which will have them in it.
