The Triumph factory service manual states that the adaptation process is required after any service work is done where the map is changed. It is only needed one time after the service. The engine temp must be below 115 degrees before it will take.

When the bike is cold, start the bike with out any throttle, allow it to idle until the first cooling cycle (the fan comes on) and then allow it idle for at least 12 min. Now the adaptation process is complete.

If you have not invested in a service manual I highly recommend it! it is the best $50 I've spent on my T-bird...
