probably a stupid question... Pc3 map on sp2

So, I just bought my sp2 not too long ago, the PO didnt even know it had a pc3 on it much less the other mods.
As of right now, I have discovered on the bike
Jardine 2:2 slip ons
Flapper mod
K&N filters
+3 rear sprocket (aftermarket front but havent pulled the cover to check the teeth yet)
and then some other mods like levers and rear sets and such.

I guess my question is, and maybe its a dumb one.
Is there any way I can tell what map its running?
Its a VA bike, and I now live in IA. so elevation is much different Im sure.
I have not a clue what map is on it and clearly the PO didnt either, the owner before him (1st owner) would be the one Im guessing.

Would I need to just put it on a dyno, and see what it does to really discover anything?
It seems to run amazing, but that being said Ive never owned an Rc before so I have no idea what it really "should" feel like with these mods.
If I put it on a dyno, I am not going to waste the time and just check the numbers, I would rather get it tuned, which I can do at a shop here in town. Just wondering if there is a way I can tell whether or not it would even be worth it.

I would be just tickled if it put down something like 130whp with all these mods, but I am just kinda lost...

To get the map off it, just download the Power Commander software and connect to the PC3r with a serial cable. Then just download the map and see what is loaded. If you want a power figure you will need to put it on a dyno. If it has a stock map from Dynojet, you will see when you download the map.

If it runs well, then likely to be no need to mess with it. Remember there's a MAP sensor & it tests inlet air pressure finely and this signal along with temp, throttle position, etc are used by the ECU to calculate fueling. A MAP sensor means you have compensation for elevation & reduced atmospheric pressure therefore.
