Default cyser question

A week ago I started a cyser. I used five gallons organic cider and about a gallon of wildflower honey. Sg was 1.110 when started. I just racked it to the secondary this morning, the gravity is 1.011. Before racking the airlock was bubbling about every 3-5 seconds. Now that it is in the secondary there is almost no airlock activity. Should I add a bit of sugar or honey to reactivate the yeast, or is it too late for that? Or is ok just to age as is? the airlock is up a little bit so I am assuming the air has been forced out and the CO2 has sealed the bottle. Thanks for any help.

should have added that I used white labs sweet mead yeast and 2.5 Tlb yeast nutrient when I started.

It sounds ok to me. I'd check the SG in a couple of days, just to make sure it's still dropping.
