    I have exactly the same problem at the moment. Optimate only showing amber after 36 hours. 2021 Himalayan - 6 months old. Is this related to the quality of the battery RE fit?

    Thanks for the pictures. Am I right in thinking that the 2 zip ties are holding the Z spring support on the inside of the swinging arm?
