I have a BMS V9 Evo150cc. There's a red light on the dash near the spedometer that is always on. The dealer I bought the scooter from said it was due to cell phone interference, but I highly doubt that's correct. I can't find anything in the owner's manual that identifies what the light indicates. Please advise.

I assume your speedo looks like this.

The red light in the shape of the phone senses cell signals so it alerts you when you have a call. I've heard it comes on when someone nearby gets one too.

Really? A sensor on the controls that tells you when you have a cell phone call coming in? Simply set your cell phone to VIBRATE mode and keep it in a jacket ro shirt pocket. You'll feel it without having to take your eyes off your riding.

A sensor like that is useless in my book. The manufacturer could have put that money spent on something more meaningfull to actual riding. I'm not dissing on your scooter choice or you, but that feature is of little value, so I wouldn't even pay attention to it. For that matter I'd tape over the light or depower it to avoid being distracted by it when riding.

That depends on how fast you are riding, that is, how much vibration you have from wind and engine.
 
I guess mine doesn't vibrate hard enough 'cause I can't feel it in my shirt pocket when riding.
I just check it every hour or so.
 
I think it's a pretty slick idea.  Unfortunately it would be pretty useless in an urban environment.......where most scooter useage occurs.
