The dictionary definition of "adaption" is modify,alter for new use, change.This page is from the KTM workshop manual So make your own mind up when you read it and see if the correction made by the change in sensor value adapts or modifies the ignition or fueling?
hey Dabler, how about some pics of your new bike?
Will post some soon, just waitin for the screen, so I'll do it then :-)
It seems we are talking about two interpretations of 'adaptive'. The sensors for ambient air pressure, ambient air temp, coolant temp and the O2 sensor are used to adjust the fueling to optimize for the current operating conditions of the engine. This is a constant process when the engine is running. No data is stored or modified. Almost every current EFI system works this way. Some systems use more sensors than others.
But this is not 'self-learning' as in the EFI system learning from the way the bike is ridden and changing itself to match a riding style and keeping that info stored somewhere. The only thing the system 'learns' are the base parameters during the 15 min calibration procedure (reset is not the right word).
