So recently on my Panigale when I put the key to the on position and Tach scrolls through its regular sequence it been showing a code "4900" this started after I shipped it from my last location Utah to Texas I taught maybe the elevation has to do something with it since now I'm only 130ft above sea level instead of 5,000 ft beacuse I was also getting terrible gas mileage and now its gotten better but me driving around the city at legal speeds and alot of highway riding at legal speeds im getting 32 MPG at best, and now it change the code from "4900" to "4850".





Anybody got an idea of what may be going on? There's no weird sounds or check engine lights on nor service lights and I just hit 2500 miles on the bike.

See how it says "SERVICE" to the left of the Gear (N)? When you start it up, it shows the mileage until the next service. So Service -4900 miles is 4900 miles until the next service. It went down to -4850 after you rode 50 miles or so and will keep going down until the SERVICE light goes on and have to take it to be serviced.

You will get bad gas mileage at altitude and the engine won't run optimally because of the thinner air and lower oxygen content. Your ECU is likely acclimating to being closer to sea level.
