My scooter will not start either by electronic ignition or by kick start. I charged the battery and now the turn signals work, etc but scooter will not start. Should I check spark plug. The horn works, the signal lights work but when I push the electric ignition, not even a sound.

No fuel or no spark. Quick test: spray some starter fluid into air intake and try to start it. If it runs and then dies, you've got spark but no fuel. If the bike quit with no prior symptoms, check spark plug wire not knocked loose, fuel filter clogged. (You do have gas, right?)
I have worked on many outboard motors. Since your motor almost starts, do these things:
1. install new spark plugs unless you are certain that the ones u are using are good.
2. Add a product called seafoam to the gas tank. Check to be sure but I recall that you add one ounce per gallon [this stuff is great].
3. At any auto parts store get a can of electrical connection spray. Spray all of your contact points.
4. Also get a can of starter fluid. Give the air intake a couple of short blasts and start the motor. if it runs real rough continue with the startere fluid until it runs smoothly.
5. Be sure that your battery cables are corrosion free where they slide over the battery terminals and that the connections are tight.
If it sat for a year without Sta-bil in the gas it is probably gummed up and you will have to remove the carb and clean the gunk out of the inside of it and check out all the passageways to make sure they are clean and open
Try jumping the waverunner using a set of jumper cables and your vehicle, this will rule out if the battery is bad. If you still have the same issue, check the connections. The connection at the starter or another place may have corroded a bit. Yet another option is to remove your spark plugs to make sure that your motor has not hydraulically locked. Once you have removed the plugs try and turn over the engine. You may need to ground out your plug wires if you have an electronic ignition to protect it. I hope this helps.
does your motor turn over or is battery dead. think you have to pull brake lever to actuate starter. if it does turn over and doesn't start. try draining carb. and to get some fresh fuel in the carb and try again. if not you may need to clean carb.
