To keep things clear for you i've listed 2 things for you to check.
Your bike produces its own power. It consists of a stationary stator with a (pick-up/pulse) signal generator
The rotor/flywheel is mounted onto the keyed crankshaft, and secured with a nut.

This will be on the right side of the motor, you'll have to remove a cover to get to it.

I would have this tested with an ohm meter before you remove anything.
Pulse generator coil resistance should read 70-130 Ohms.

Your battery produces power to start your enegine and run some lights. After some time your battery would go dead if not recharged. Your bike has a Voltage Regulator & Rectifier built into one unit, which some people call just a voltage regulator, and some people call it an alternator.

Your above mentioned stator produces an electrical current called AC power, which probably only runs the headlights, and the rest of that AC power is converted to DC power via the Alternator/Voltage Regulator, which runs the rest of the lights and horn, etc.

Your alternator should put out 13.5 - 15.5 Volts @ 5000 rpm.
Any other reading means your Alternator is bad. Too low undercharging Too high overcharging.

Test your alternator at the battery when the motor is running.

If you need to replace your alternator, it is located under the (nose)front plastics.
Usually a 4 prong plug and one bolt securing it to the frame.

Yes you can charge the battery with a battery tender, or battery charger, when the bike is sitting.

Your People S 200 requires a 12 v, 6Ah battery.

Fully charged will have 13.1 Volts
Undercharged 12.3 Volts

Most battery tenders use low amps to charge and wont overcharge your battery.It just maintains it at 12.5 Volts.
If you use a battery charger, be sure you monitor it regulary, as some models don't shut off.

Is it new or when was the last service?

2005 Kymco... | Answered on Dec 10, 2010

Hi! I strongly suggest that you put in a genuine kymco crank assembly. Since you made some modifications, a kymco crank may resolve this. Since it's a trial and error thing for a modified scooter, the genuine crank will be close enough on resolving this. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

you have to figure out how to remove the side body panels first.i just examined mine,starting taking off a few screws at a time.it does take quite a tug to undo the panel from the clips.the back 3 clips you had to slide toward the back to unseat,but first to unseat the front 2 i had to pull straight out.that should give you enough access to the chain case.REMEMBER PULL THE PANEL A LITTLE HARD BUT BE CAREFUL,THEY LOOK LIKE THEY COULD BREAK.cheap a$$ foreign ****.

Please check your owner's manual. (Seems like the rear springs are bolted together to the rear tire. In that case, you will have to remove the axle bolts and knock it out with a rubber mallet).

2005 Kymco... | Answered on Oct 19, 2009

You are very lucky to have only knocked out the speedometer only. After having wrongly connected the battery, any attempt to start the engine, which it won't be able to do, the first notch turned by the key switches on the electrically operated instruments. Since this is DC voltage, the current flows in only one direction. The speed is indicated by the amount of current being generated in the potentiometer. Since the polarity got changed the current generated by the potentiometer to very high amperage since the battery is also supplying current(polarity change), the total current is much more that it can accept. Thus the coils of the potentiometer have burnt out. If only the can be replaced, do so, else change the entire speedometer assembly.........sodeep
PS: Ask the repairman to check the fuse if it has one.

Steve when you store a vehicle it is best to use a trickle charger to maintain the battery.

, I believe your problem can be solved by replacing the charging fuse next to the battery. It is not with the other fuses. If you pull the battery out it should be on the left with a plastic cover thing over it. Follow the power line and it will be along that.

best thing to do is screw air fuel mixture screw in all the way the back out 1.5 turns this is a good starting point then trim it out thanks for using fixya!

Assuming it's the same as my Kymco Agility, it's really easy cheapest is to buy a new one on ebay, it connects under the right handlebar to the throttle, there's a clip under the handle clip it in rescrew on the throttle handlebar and feed it through to the carb, just feed it through where the old one went and connect it to the top of the carb and that's it.
