@Royal Enfield Himalayan
The riders were in the forest when the RE himalayan was not able to start. but there was a good distance between the stalled motorcycle and the service center. But there was challenge to take the bike into action till service center.
When the riders made all attempts to start the engine but it failed. when Altaf looked into the issue and he noted that the key which holds the crank and magnet together had been displaced or broken. This caused the starter motor to rotate freely which resulted in the stalling of the engine.
Altaf removed the engine cover with help of tools he carried with him. After the removal he noticed that the metal key had been chipped. which was resting inside the crankcase. Altaf was inventive to replace the broken key with cut portion of the registration plate. Thus making a temporary replacement of the broken component. This solution helped to solve the problem and the RE Himalayan engine roared to life.
