125CC Lexmoto Tommy Problems Battery Related?

I am hoping someone here can give me a bit of advice. I am not very experienced with scooters and their maintenance.

A few months ago my voltage regulator went on the bike. A garage ordered and fitted a new one for me - a process which took about three weeks, during which time I did not ride the bike at all.

When I tried to start the bike to take it to the garage it wouldn't start with the starter and had to be cranked. The garage advised that because it had not been ridden in a while the charge had gone from the battery adn after riding it for a few days the charge should build up again and it should start from the electric starter.

A month later after crancking the bike every day, the battery is dead and the engine won't turn over by the starter or by the crank.

I have re-charged the battery and it is giving the correct voltage out but the bike still will not start. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions at all that might help? Any advice is gratefully received!:)

If it won't even turn over, check the kill switch, fuses, CDI, loose or broken battery cable, starter, etc.
If it turns over but won't start, check spark plug and spark plug wire, bad connection on start brake, plugged carb, CDI, starter, bad gas, etc.

Parts are so difficult to get for some Lexmoto scooters.
The problem sounds like you need to buy a new battery now about thirty quid on line.
Best bet sell the Lexmoto and buy a decent second hand Honda it will be cheaper in the long run

Hello, thanks for your replies.
Luckily it was the battery as a replacement has solved the problem.
Think I'll stick with the Lexmoto for now (only had it for 10 months), but may well start lookign around for second hand scooters from a brand with a better lineage at some point soon.
