Retune or not?

Looking for some advice. I am planning a trip which will take me from my normal elevation (350 feet) to around 6000 feet. I have a Power Vision and could do a retune on the fly if needed, but I am curious if this is even needed?

The short answer is no. However you may choose to do it ~ remember your bike will never run as strong at higher elevations. I like to look at the afr's and frequently play with the tune ~ but the reality is at higher altitudes you should be good to go.

Absolutely not...I have run at elevations from sea level to over 14,000 feet on several different motorcycles and never had an issue with any, all of which were injected and two of which had aftermarket tuner kits. Your CVO shouldn't even notice a change to 6,000'.

No need to do anything! The O2 sensors will do all the adjusting for elevation changes.
