Updated 2005-05-24: I finally found a mechanic and after a bit of wait, the bike was towed away today. The verdict: the starter engine had melted.
So now began the wait for a new starter…
How long this will take is anybody’s guess. So far the delivery times for parts from Triumph have been anything between week and over a month.
Updated 2005-05-31: In a surprising turn of events, Mp-Asennus got the bike fixed in a day using a spare Kawasaki starter. Great work, thanks! Now the bike is running without problems.
Thanks to everybody for their good ideas and suggestions!
