Hello squad - I've been scouring these boards without any avail, hoping someone who had a similar experience could lend any suggestions.

Recently tried to start my scooter and the turnover was much weaker than usual. Taking a couple tries to start up is not out of the ordinary for my Blur. After a couple attempts the engine would not even attempt to turn over, leading me to troubleshoot the battery as per the service manual found on page 22 here:

However, after testing the start motor it began to make a rapid clicking sound. Almost like spinning a wheel (think wheel of fortune) or putting a baseball card between your bike spokes. This is now the norm whenever I attempt to start the engine via the yellow start button. I have also been having incredible trouble getting the bike to start via the kickstart (hundreds of buddy kick start vids watched) so have been unable to take it into my local shop.

Any info would be greatly apprecaited!

How often do you ride your Blur? What is the average distance of each trip? How old is the battery? Has the battery been tested under a load and not just a voltage check?

FWIW, the kickstarter in my Blur never really worked very well at starting the engine. I will probably remove the kickstart arm just to save a little bit of weight.
