  • Changing altitude, service?

    Moving from Portland OR, to Carson city, NV

    Portland is basically at sea level and Carson is right around 5,500 ft. Do I need to adjust anything for the difference?

    Bikes undergoing a full tune today in Portland and just want to make sure im not throwing money away.

    my bike runs a little fat up here with the yoshi map.. when i get to higher elevations like tahoe,the fuel injection does pretty well in adjusting.. do you have a power commander? Its not like my old cbr i was alway screwing with the jets.. finally jetted it to where it was a little fat up here and a little lean at sea level... fuel injection is nice..

      Dont think I have a power commander. The shop its at will inform me of what after market equipment it has. Jumping 5,500 ft is huge, and dont know if the bike can adjust that much on its own?

        There is an atmospheric pressure sensor under the headlight assembly that adjusts the fuel maps according to your elevation. It should be fine

        just check your tire pressures when you get up there cause you'll have thick air in them. lol
        Looking for ETI fuel Cell or carbon bimota tank, and a rear seat for the TLR... PM me with those items.

          It should adjust itself, though FactoryPro claims the stock setup does not correct enough. Only one way to find out whether yours works for you.
          It's about control skill; this is a motorized dance for joy and not Russian roulette.
