There's a fair chance that on a scooter of that age, depending on usage and mileage, that you need to replace your piston rings. Cost about £10.

Removing vespa et4 kick start

in front of the kickstart lever is a nut bolt which you must unscrew.
- but before you do that you need to mark the precise position on the lever axle with a permanent marker - after removing the bolt you can tear off the lever (use WD40 and wobble action)

My Vespa ET2 will not start when it's off the kickstand. Starts fine when the bike is on the kickstand. Engine cuts out when i push the bike off of the stand.

I'm not familiar with ET2s but I had a similar problem with a Vespa 100 years ago. After hours of messing about i discovered a bolt had fallen and blocked one of the air inlets on the bottom of the frame. Was fine when i kicked it but when my bum was on the saddle it kinda 'sealed' around the tank area and starved the engine of air. As i say, i don't know about new ET2s but sounds kinda similar symptoms.

When i kick my scooter(vespa 125cc) off its ok if i stop and it cools down it wont kick off but if i bump it off it fires up ok

I don't know much about Vespa scooters but from what you're describing, your valves need adjusting. If the valve is standing open as little as one thousandth of a inch, you won't have enough compression to start the engine at kick starter cranking speeds. It will start when you push the scooter and bump it off. This is because you get a higher piston speed allowing the engine to start before the compression has time to bleed off. Check the valve adjustment,especially the exhaust valve.
