Kill switch.

Brake light switches. Check the brake lights.

Missing some context here. Why did you replace the battery? Did you test your old battery before replacement to confirm it was the problem? When you say "still nothing" does that mean no headlight/lights on the cluster when the key is in the ON position or just no start?

With the new battery, if you switch on the contact, do you then have normal display reading?

No click , no starter relay engagement
The two smaller pins on the relay need 12v & a ground to engage

Thanks all. I took the belt cover off and saw the starter gear and gotten stuck. Lubed it and put it all back together. Enjoyed a couple of nice rides today.
I'm really enjoying the scooter
