I was wondering if there is anyone on this forum near the Austin, TX area that could help me get my cv80 running again. I have rebuilt the scooter and suspect its something electrical.

Phoenix,,, is not close... but I'm in the same spot you are.
However, you must localize the problem, beginning with the battery.
Good battery, fully charged ? OK
Now remove the spark plug, ground it somewhere metal.
Turn the gas tank valve OFF. Don't touch the throttle.
Turn the key ON, and KICK START it, watching for the spark. Don't use the electric starter.
See a Spark ? OK
Now try the starter.
Lots of Spark ? OK
Squirt 10 drops of fresh gas into the plug hole, and put the spark back in place.
Don't touch the throttle.
Run the starter,,, 1texas, 2texas, 3texas, 4texas, 5texas.
What happened Question
