Any way to bump start a scooter with no kick start?

My scooter has been sitting for a little while. I tried starting it today, but it was just too low on juice to get the thing running.

Is there a way to bump/push start scooters without a kick start? I'm 100% sure that the answer is no, but wanted to double check.

I'll be hooking it up to the battery tender tomorrow if there isnt a quick solution.

There is no way to bump start a CVT (automatic) scooter. The clutch will not engage unless the engine is running. Depending on how long it has been sitting, the battery may not be any good any more. I would use a 1 amp charger on it for 24 hours. If that doesn't do it, you will need a new battery. I have battery tenders on all 6 of my bikes. I got tired of replacing batteries that went bad because they didn't get used often enough.

How about jump starting it. I've done that from my Jeep,with the Jeeps motor turned off. + one for battery tenders.

You can pull the CVT cover off and wrap a flat strap around the variator fins; Pull start scooter
