On a trip with a group of other riders into the remote areas of the country, Altaf, astride a RE Himalayan found himself dealing with a stalled engine. The bike in question failed all attempts to get it started.
The riders were in the thickest of jungle, surrounded by thick foliage and marshy landscape with no other help in sight. There was a good distance between the stalled motorcycle and the nearest service station and it was upto these riders themselves to get the bike into action.
When all attempts to start the engine failed, it was Altaf’s keen eye that noted that the key which holds the crank and magnet together had been dislodged. This caused the starter motor to rotate freely which in turn stalled the engine.
The metal key had been chipped with a part of it resting inside the crankcase. Altaf used a bit of ingenuity. He cut a portion of the registration plate thus making a temporary replacement of the broken component. This helped solve the problem and the engine of the RE Himalayan roared to life.
A lot of Royal Enfield Himalayan owners have posted about having facing issues with the bike’s quality and reliability. Currently, the sale of Himalayan have been stopped. RE will soon relaunch the bike with improvements in engine and overall build quality.
The new Himalayan will come in with an electronic fuel injection system and comply with the new BS IV emission norms. The adventure tourer unofficially open for bookings with deliveries promised by August 2017.
