Modern Vespa Owners!

I've had my 250 stored on the center stand for quite some time and if I remember correctly, I stored it without the tilt lock engaged.

I bought a new battery and swapped it in this morning. Bike starts up without issues, but there is a continuous beep (one single non-ending beep and not the horn) and both the yellow and red tilt lock icons are illuminated.

The tilt lock is not engaged (off the center stand, I can lean left and right).

Has anyone experienced this? What was the fix?

I'm sorry, but I'm not sure what you mean. Do you mind elaborating?

2 cables run down to 2 sensors on the front wheels so the tilt ecu knows when to disengage the lock when you start moving. The 2 sensors may be full of crap or the cables may have gone open circuit. It also drives the speedo so if that is working I may be giving you a bum steer.

I appreciate you directing me to that video (here for those that are curious: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vGSdFmgTTJs&t=76s), but it does not include my specific situation.

I have both the yellow and red tilt lock lights illuminated and a continuous beep (not the horn).
