Italjet went bust in early 2003, the dealer network promptly disappeared, and spares ran out shortly after this, as UK stocks were very low.

Your chance of obtaining spares, other than the generic ones such as Tyres, brakes etc are very very slim now.

Best offload it ASAP, because being realistic, if an essential-but-unobtainable part fails, you will have an ornament.

I've never heard of the Millennium, but the Italjet Dragster still has a big fan club, so perhaps you could get some help from them: www.italjetdragster.com (http://www.italjetdragster.com/).

I believe the Italjet Dragster uses the same engine as the ever popular Gilera Runner (2 Strk) and parts are readily available for them. Not sure about the Millenium

The millennium was a twin cylinder Rotax hybrid engine wasn't it?
Supposed to be very fast in it's day but extremely fragile and needed careful servicing.
Have you googled or tried the Italjet Dragster Club as the service lights will possibly be similar to the ones on their scoots?
Try http://www.italjetscooterspares.co.uk/ (http://www.italjetscooterspares.co.uk/)
http://www.italjet.co.uk/ (http://www.italjet.co.uk/) they have a forum too.

I believe the engine is a standard Jap unit, but the body and trimmings are unique to the Millennium.

Seriously, spares are NOT going to be at all easy, if at all possible to obtain, and ONE vital part failure will render it useless.

You would have to be mad to own something that could have such an abrupt end. When they were new, they were impossible to sell anyway...

Someone on scooter-scene is bound to know how to reset the service lights:
