You can see a drawing that shows the MAP tubes on Each tube consists of 5 pieces, 3 rubber connections and 2 hard plastic tubes. Do yourself a favor and get rid of the stock Triumph tubes and replace with single piece flexible tubing and tube clamps at each end.
Thanks jaknife, sounds like sound advice

Die hard LT owner - you have to be with all the issues mine has had. :-)
