What a great bunch of guys you are!!!
I haven't used my scoot during the winter and so I thought that I'd better start it up............IT DIDN'T !!
It made a grating noice, it was as though the starter motor wasn't turning.
I telephoned my local dealer and he told me to 'bring it in', I did explain that as it didn't start I would find that a bit difficult. He told me that he would arrange some transport...after a week no contact with this dealer...I was not happy.
I then checked on the scoot again and found that there was no ignition lights on when I turned on the key, I assumed that the battery was totally discharged. On lifting the seat, the light inside was so dim that I was convinced that the battery was totally gone.
I'll charge it up, I thought....where the dickens is the battery housed...thanks to you great bunch of guys I found it, charged it and STARTED IT. A bit reluctant to begin with, but with success.
Do you realise that if my local dealer had been any good at his job I would be out of pocket by now.
The moral of this story is to trickle charge your scoot if left idle for any length of time (I know that's what the manual says, but you only read them when something goes wrong...it's a man thing!).
Can't thank you all enough, happy days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
