There's a button covered with rubber on the left side of the dashboard. Using a thin stick, push this firmly and hold (while the bike is running) for about 1 minute. Fixed.

the stator produces ac current and the voltage regulator/ rectifier converts the ac current to dc current and keeps your battery charged.

So its probably your voltage regulator.
when engine is off the battery should read 12.5 volts
At idle the baterry should read 12.8+ volts
at 2000 rpm battery should read 13.0 - 14.8 volts

if your not getting those readings your voltage regulator is bad.
you can find them at parts for scooters dot com pretty cheap and they ship fast.

as for the speedo, you may be able to take apart and reset the needle. Some you can't even get to.
so you may have to get a new one.

You will need a Engine error code reader and will need to read error codes listed and erase all error codes which will reset the bike check engine light.

The battery is charging up, that should be the reason the light is on. you had it in a dry state, and now you brought it back to life. It should charge up and the light will go out. Give it a few miles of steady running on the road, like about 50. Hope this helps.

not sure how much gas is in it but buy yourself a bottle of gas line antifreeze and put a half bottle in your tank now and a half next time you fill up. it absorbs any water in your fuel.

The bulbs could be busted. This is the worse case.. check the fuses and replace if necessary. check also that the battery is fully charged.

Hi apexmt; You are right to question it's behaviour.. Somthing is wrong.It should get to normal operating temp. as soon as posible, and stay there. It's piston will not get to the correct size and shape till that happens. It seems (from a remote view point) that it's thermostat is a bit sticky. May I suggest that you have it replaced as a matter of urgency; as : "if the engine is too cold, it WILL WEAR OUT in no time at all". .And ..if the thermostat sticks in the closed position.. it will cook the engine. I do not know your machine ... yet, If you feel competent..... find its radiator...the top hose will more than likely lead you to its thermostat housing. Do this cold. Drain the coolant system. remove the housing and replace the thermostat. Do NOT put its radiator cap back on until it's reached operating temp.The top hose will get hot as the thermostat starts to open. So You Know for sure that it is full of the green coolant.
