Which batteries can I purchase to replace the original from my scooter, a 2007 Honda Metropolitan?
My scooter (2007 Honda Metropolitan) has been sitting unused for a couple years. In the interest of time, I want to replace the battery instead of charging it, if that's even possible at this point -- I did not remove it pre-storage. Problem is, I'm not sure which battery to get, Google returns many battery sales websites that I find impenetrable, and the clerk at my local Batteries Plus could not figure out what to recommend based on my scooter's make/model.
I haven't found a previous question about this topic, though I did find one about scooter batteries & alternators
Any tips about revivifying a currently dormant scooter appreciated. I am planning to take it to a local scooter shop for whatever tuneup/maintenance may be needed. I am not mechanically adept, but I've read over a list of what to do after winter storage
and would appreciate any other advice/tips. I've been the primary rider and have done no maintenance to this point -- 1,100 miles. A very minor accident in '07 left the front fender/wheel guard damaged, and I should probably look into replacing it, but the scooter is otherwise mechanically sound, as far as I know.
