I did the same mods as you except for going with dominator touring pipes and removing the air box baffle. None of the Triumph maps made me happy with how the bike ran so I removed the o2 sensors and went with a pie man tune, bike runs great and much better fuel economy than any of the Triumph maps. From what I read its really hard to open up the intake side and not go with a custom tune since Triumph cant imagine anyone would mess with the air box. Just something to keep in mind. The altitude is alot lower here though at about 2800. Your location might actually help you not need a new map unless you come down to a lower elevation since your bike running the stock maps would be running pretty rich up there..

The system employs an ambient pressure sensor so it adjusts for altitude constantly, so this won't help.

Totally agree and more to the point why bother doing the mod's and not the re-tune? It doesn't make sense to me to spend money on fancy gear and then not get the full effect from it but then I am known for being a bit 'careful' with my money.
