Apologies for being so ignorant of these mechanical / technical things but my battery is dead and I need to replace it.
I've pulled out the battery and it's a Yuasa YTX12-BS.
I've looked it up and also found some alternatives like the Katana YTX12-BS.
Any advice on this exercise from anyone? Good alternatives? Makes to avoid? Did I read correctly about having to "activate" the battery? If so, what's that?
Thanks in advance.
Give Melbourne Motorcycle Fairings in Spotswood a call.
They'll pick your bike up and install a new battery in no time, and even deliver it back to you.
And they are now regularly servicing and repairing modern Vespa.
Followed the Club's advise and went through Fairings in Spotswood. They were great and "activated" it for me.
