Anytime they are removed.   Highly recommend don't separate them.   I would synq them at least one time per year and I was able to get them better each time so they do go astray some over the year.   

There is link in the KB to make your own meter using tubing and stick.   This has been the best proven way to synq.

Anytime you touch them, even a idle change can throw the sync off a bit. I used to do mine several times a year or as soon as I started to feel it in the handlebars.
