The starter motor turneth
Thanks to a combination of Dad, JJ at work, my Haynes manual and the good people at bikechatforums.com, I have got my bike running again.
In an extreme feat of manly-ness, I stripped the starter motor and replaced the brushes. The photo shows the dodgy old brushes. A week ago I had absolutely no idea how a starter motor worked. I'm still not entirely sure, but I know know how to strip it an dput it back together again.
It's amazing what a reluctance to part with cash will drive you to learn.
Next week: Steve extracts his own wisdom teeth!
