Not being able to electrically start a scooter can have several causes. Often the first thought goes to the battery, and for good reason. The battery plays a crucial role in the starting process.

Scooter will not start electric and kick start
It's a familiar scenario for many scooter owners: you try to start, but both the electric start and kick start don't respond. In such a situation, there could be several problems. Before you proceed to replace the cylinder or any other part, it is very important to first thoroughly investigate what could be causing the problem.
Scooter does not start electric battery full
Interestingly, even with a full battery, sometimes the scooter still refuses to start. Here you can think of problems such as faulty fuses, a failing starter motor or even damaged wiring. In addition, the spark plug or ignition system can also cause problems. A thorough check of the entire electrical system may then be necessary.
Electric start scooter repair
Once you have determined that the problems lie specifically with the electric starter, there are several approaches to fixing it. A battery check is the first step, followed by inspection of the starter motor. Checking the wiring for corrosion or loose connections can also reveal common problems.
The situation where a scooter does not start electrically, but does start with a kickstart, is an indication that the problem may be with the battery or the electric start itself and not the engine. If neither starting method produces results, there may be a more serious problem, such as a defective cylinder. In such cases, it is advisable to call in a specialist.
Electric start does not work
When your scooter stops responding at all, both electrically and via the kick start, it is necessary to perform a comprehensive inspection. In doing so, you may have to deal with both electrical and mechanical problems.
