Ask the dealer to get the Factory to remove the procedure from manual Part# T3856390 issue 1, 02.2010. Page 10B.105.

I reread the procedure and it says to start the engine and allow it to run until the "cooling fan comes on," then for additional 12 minutes. There's a cooling fan?

You have not damaged anything. It does not get as hot as you might think - I recall in another thread there was a post where the oil temperature was measured during adaption and it's nowhere near as hot as a good thrash down the highway would make it.

No - that's referring to water cooled bikes.

That's what I was thinking.

The TTP procedure also said to idle that long but the computer showed it was done after about 7 minutes.

They've used the water-cooled Triumphs write-up and included it into the air-cooled Bonnies manual. The wonders of cut-n-paste.

Which would explain why it is no longer in the manual.

That's interesting, what manual is that?. My T3856390 issue 1, 02.2010 has it on page 10B.105. The previous one with part number T3856561 published 2008-9 covered EFI Bonnies but did not include the procedure.

So then I guess the question is: is there an "adaptive cycle" for air cooled Triumphs?
