The manuals says the bike triggers this warning if the voltage is equal to or below 11.0 volts. Perhaps if you take the bike out for a good run (after lockdown!!) the light will go out as the voltage rises?

Thanks for that just borrowed a Oxford battery charger and your right it’s showing 8 volts so will check later in week when fully charged

Hi if it’s showing 8 volts, likely the battery is beyond saving. 1 or 2 of the cells are probably gone.

Plan for good possibility of having to buy a new battery.

Good news battery charged up showing 12.8 volts started first touch . charger showing maintenance mode.
If it got down to 8 volts it is probably damaged beyond repair. It may struggle on for a while but I would be budgeting for a new battery and a maintenance charger sooner rather than later. The battery is likely to collapse on you at the worst possible time.
