Hi there and thank you for using FixYa!

Yes this is a common problem with bikes having dirty spark plugs and poor fuel quality. What you do is to remove the plugs, clean it well.. or better, replace it with a new one. Then if it still doesnt start, pull the choke knob for a while. start it.. if it still doesnt start. Open the carbs to check if there are any dirt blocking the jets. Blow the holes with compressed air. Assemble and replace it back. Start. if it still doesnt work, check for the cable, make sure it has current firing to the spark plug.

let me know if this helps..

The battery can be accessed by removing the right side cover and unbolting the smaller battery cover underneath the fuse box. The seat is removed by taking out the two bolts that hold it in place. I believe the two bolts are underneath the fender and go up into the seat You should not have to remove the seat to charge or remove the battery.

The starter motor uses a lot of current. There could be a poor connection at the battery, or the battery could be too weak. Most auto parts stores have battery testers and they will check it for free.

First get the battery load tested at any Interstate Outlet. It takes 3 minutes and is free.

If the battery is good, you need a good auto-electrician. Parasitic draw is difficult to diagnose, but you have something draining to earth.

Or your battery is just worn out and not holding the charge. Average life on a motorcycle / scooter is 4 to 5 years due to bad maintenance and bad winter storage plus vibration.

SOURCE: scoopy
There is a fuel shutoff valve on the bottom of the tank that stops fuel flow when the engine is not running.
At a guess while the scooter was in storage the fuel evaporated from the carby and fuel lines. Now you are trying to start it again the fuel is slowly flowing down to the carby but not fast enough to fill the carby and start the engine.
You are probably close to starting if you cranked it for about 1 minute.
Three posibilities, keep cranking, keep adding fuel to the inlet to keep it kicking over until the carby gets fuel or take the vacuum line off the carby and suck on it for a while to let the fuel flow down to the carby.
Either way you should be close to it starting assuming its just the fuel shortage in the carby.
