Nothing that I can think of. I routinely use my Chemex 3 cup model for both high-test for me, and decaf for my wife. I change nothing other than the actual roast.
There is, however, the possibility you'll notice a flavor difference after drinking regular coffee, so you might find yourself adjusting the grind for a longer brew time to extract some extra strength/flavor.

My imperfect understanding of the world is that decaffeinated beans become more brittle by the process; thus your grinder will likely produce more fines with decaf than usual. If you want to try an adjustment, I'd recommend grinding a little finer to ameliorate this effect and to shorten the brew time accordingly.
