I'm looking at buying a FZ-10 and was wondering how it performs at higher altitudes. I had an FJR 1300A a few years ago and it had some serious issues in the upper mountains. Independence Pass, Colorado. It started stalling. Was lucky to get it running enough to make it down the mountain. It ran fine afterward.

Thanks in advance.

Not sure if your gonna do any performance mods, like replaceing just the mid pipe with a Graves EVR mid pipe? You can also get the active tune with a reflash and I guess rideing at sea level or 8,000 mi above it ,the active tuneing will take care of any fuel mixture needed. :nerd:

^ yeah like he said the ActiveTune is a good option for those that change altitudes a lot, it will adjust on the fly for you

Thanks for your reply. I have a trip lined up for a ride from Houston, TX. to and through Montana. I have to prioritize accessories by necessity. That means luggage and comfort have to come first. I already bought the mandatory items for motorcycle protection. Got to have the radiator/oil cooler covers. It's kind of scary that Yamaha engineered an oil cooler directly behind the front tire (without a real cover).
I also ordered the frame and axle sliders for the "just in case" factor. Oh, and the midsize wind screen is on its way as well.
I'm just hoping that the brainiacs at Yamaha programmed the ECU to adjust for altitude changes on the fly. But, considering the lack of oil cooler protection, I'm guessing not.
