possible urban legend
« on: October 01, 2013, 10:10:29 PM »
now taking a coffee with triumph dealership owner, told me

when picking the bike in the morning, the first time in the day, do this
a) turn on the bike and do not touch the accelerator
b) leave it switched to idle until the fan jump
c) not to touch anything and wait ten minutes with the bike turned
d) go for a drive and see the change

have not tried it yet and I do not mean what was the change, if someone wants to try, tell us the experience, I for another two days I can not get the bike

I believe this is the method for allowing the ECU to reset the idle, for example after a change of exhaust.  Other than the reference to a fan it is the method used on the twins.

It is the standard ECU reset procedure.

Not necessary on every start - only when something has been changed, like an exhaust.

This is the standard Triumph Adaptation procedure.  I don't have a TT SM, but this is the proceedure from the Thunderbird SM:

Forcing adaption to take place
If the read out indicates that the motorcycle is not
adapted, the following will force the system to make
adaptions:
Never start the engine or let it run for any length of time
in a closed area. The exhaust fumes are poisonous and
may cause loss of consciousness and death within a
short time. Always operate the motorcycle in the open air
or in an area with adequate ventilation.
Note:
• Resetting adaptions with the motorcycle
connected to an exhaust extraction system
may cause incorrect values to be set, causing
poor engine running. Always reset the
adaptions with the engine disconnected from
any exhaust extraction system whilst ensuring
the motorcycle is positioned in a well
ventilated area.
1. Ensure the engine is cold.
2. WITHOUT TOUCHING THE THROTILE, start the
engine and allow it to warm up until the cooling fan
comes on.
3. Leave the engine to idle for a further 12 minutes.
Note:
• As an alternative to the above process, connect
the diagnostic tool, select ADJUST TUNE (see
the Triumph Diagnostic Tool User Guide) and
select RESET ADAPTIONS. This will force a fast
adaption routine to take place in around 5
seconds. For this to happen, the engine MUST
be running, it must be at normal operating
temperature and in closed loop control mode.
Under any other conditions fast adaption will
not take place and may cause default values to
be loaded, which may then require a normal 12
minute adaption routine to be run.

This is only needed if you make a change to the bike as described above. Also, the bike will adapt after a change without this procedure, but it might take a few rides.

I tested today
I have noticed that the bike is more full, with more force, responds before the accelerator

Learning something new every day  :152:  Thanks for posting! Didn't really have a need for it, yet - but it's good to know anyways!

When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.
