If you just want the picture to change, then there is nothing you need do.

For example:
procedure TForm1.Timer1Timer(Sender: TObject);
begin
      TestMenuItem.ImageIndex := Random(4);
end;

With the menu popped up, this changes the image every second and works perfectly. Is there something else you wanted to do? Maybe call UpdateItems (TMenu).
