Some things to check:
Is your battery fully charged and does it have the proper amount of electrolyte? Use a multi-meter across the battery terminals, you should get around 13v (direct current). Watch the meter as you try to start the scooter, if the voltage drops a lot your battery is probably bad.
Is your starter button working? When you press the button do you hear a click or get any indication it has been pressed? Has there been any damage to the switch area recently?
Is the starter working? Do you hear the starter turning the engine over, or is the starter just spinning? If just spinning and your battery is good, check your starter solenoid.

Unable to get starter to turn.have rplcd batt.cables.rplcd starter relay,solenoid,starter also mostly rewired added a ground cable to solenoid from frame.does also have an added pushbutton...

This is a possibility. The header says you're working on a 1979 XLH 1000cc Sportster. This is not a 250cc bike and it takes a good battery to start and engine of this size. I've never seen a CCA rating on the battery requirement in a service manual but it does say that the battery should be capable of at least 32 Ahr.

Good Luck

1980 yamaha 400 xs starter spins engine doesent turn over

The starter clutch needs to be replaced. At the other end of that chain is a wheel with a couple slots cut at angles. Inside each of these slots is a small cylindrical piece of metal. The whole unit fits over the end of the crankshaft and because of the angle of the slots those cylindrical pieces of metal (which move freely in the slots) will be forced against and grip the crankshaft when the starter is operated. If they become worn down they are no longer able to exert enough pressure on the crankshaft in order to turn it. Buying a starter clutch 2nd hand is not recommended. If you are unable to source one from a bike shop, try and have them made. Take the old ones to an engineering shop. Unless you know how to temper/harden metal of course.

05 raptor 660 has new starter turns but wont engage

Sounds like there is something wrong with the bendix, it does not seem to engage, remove the starter, place the starter against the engine and push the start button to see if the bendix slides along the shaft if it does easily then check the gear inside the starter housing

Engine will not start

Take the starter out and see if the starter drive gear is stripped or just need lub for the bendix( the thing that makes the gear move forward to engage the other gear.
