Hi Rollmops
Has your battery died? Mine died as a result of the harness issue, however my local Honda dealer fitted a new battery foc before I had the replacement harness replaced, however they did recommend a battery charger/ maintainer which I duly purchased ( Oxford maximiser 3000 I think) bit expensive at £70 but well worth it, every time I put the bike in the garage it goes on charge.
If you've not had the replacement harness I'd book it in as its free of charge but might take a couple of days to fit.
Regards
Drew

My Battery is still OK, sort of.It does take a few more turns to start, but then after over2 years no surprise. It will be getting colder soon and my bike is parked in the street.Charging the battery all the time is not really an option.
I get a new Battery and keep the old one charged as a backup.
My harness has been replaced,so no issues there.

According to this its a Yuasa YTZ8V

According to this chart the YTX7L-BS battery is a very close match and should do the job.
Battery2u list the YTX7L-BS as the one for the job and it can be had for much cheapness elsewhere.
The one aspect the cheaper YTX7L-BS battery doesn't match is the CCA (cold crank amps) rating, however that's only likely to be a problem in extreme cold when you probably won't be using the scooter anyway.
