The battery has been fully charged and has been tested on another moped, but i cannot get the piaggio to start. There just doesnt seem to be getting any power from anywhere. It was stripped down for a respray and since putting it back together again it doesnt want to start. I have tested that all the lights, indicators etc work and they are fine. But as soon as you try the electric start it doesnt do anything

Check for a loose or a poor ground. This can keep the electric from getting to the starter. Check at the starter to see if it has voltage when the starter is suppose to be cranking the engine.
