Which fuel management to get?

Here we go...This has been done to death, but I have to ask again...
I am moving from Italy to New Mexico...basically going from sea level to 5000+ feet. I have a1098s with full Akra system and DP flashed ECU.

What is the best fuel management system for me to get to help compensate for the altitude difference?

Now for the shitty part...I might have to pass an emissions test, which means stock pipes go back on.

Just reflash the ECU. It will probably still pass emissions...

I wouldn't bother buying a piggyback system or fancy ECU if you're just street riding the thing, too much money in my view.

I do track it as well. Ideally I would love TC and a quick shifter as well. Something like Bazzaz...

I am using a nemesis ecu. I had it tuned by boulder motor sports. After the dyno it was producing 166hp and 98 lbs tq. I came from Hawaii where it was sea level and my bike did not run very well at all. It backfired had no power and ran like dog shit. The custom tune is very important at altitude. I think the micro tech ecu is a little better then the nemesis. The Nemesis works better with my traction control that is why I am using it. Microtech and nemesis used to be the same company.

The air pressure sensor will take care of the altitude......

New Mexico, no emmissions testing on bikes just cars and that depends on county for cars.
You will feel the power loss, 5300 ft . Running 1198 Power Commander V with custom map and auto tune , which works, tried without , hoping I could get rid of big / heavy oxygen sensors and connections. There is a difference with . Runs great in town at 5300 ft and great up the Crest road here 10,100 ft ride up. Look me up when arrive, Take it your Air Force probably. Retired AF myself. Have a save trip !!!

Thanks 1198duckpearl. I am Air Force, just go to Kirtland yesterday. I got a call today and my HHG has arrived already, so now to find a house!

Good info on the emissions testing. I will have to get the cars done, but didn't know bikes are exempt. Phew!

I'll take a look at the PC V. I would love a system that takes advantage of the dual O2 ports on my exhaust.

just reflash the ecu if needed. and instead of getting a bazzaz QS just grab an annitori. no messy settings to work with and you dont have to buy a $600 system.

As the other members advised, a reflash will do wonders for you and if you wish you can use my name as a referral with my good friend Dave Lillard of Redline Performance & Rexxer as he often hooks those I send up a bit. Just offering some help bro.

Rexxer ECU Tuning, tune ups for European sports bikes and scooters in Yorktown, VA, a short drive away for customers in Newport News, Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, and Richmond

Microtec.
You can do more than just fuel adjustment with it but it is costly.

I would get it tuned at a local shop. Just re flashing it will help but you are at altitude now. It is much better to have it done on a dyno so it runs right.

Pott..that is plan A. I am new to ABQ and don't know if there are any shops nearby that can handle this. I am sure there are, but I just have to find them. I don't want just anyone playing around with my ECU.
