If your regular trips are around 10km, two days idle for a battery is very short – it's almost if something is still draining power, do you have a navigation or some other gadget installed, even a mobile phone charger drains power (even when not charging a phone).

If nothing is draining power while you park the Honda PCX for two days, you should start looking for electric shorts in the wiring... Also test the battery, disconnect it for two days reconnect it after two days... and try to start... If the scoot starts you should look for the electric power drainage somewhere else.

no chargers plugged in or anything ,checking for shorts at the moment will let you know if find anything,i do not know much about these dry cell batteries,as you cannot charge or kick start the pcx its a bit anoying
