assess the weird sound please...

I think its the belt slipping on start. I just replaced the belt though and the same sound is happening as before.

What I know about a scooter drive belt noise couldn't fill a thimble, but do you think that'll stop me?  :P

Wouldn't you isolate the starter vs belt noise by starting the scooter with the rear wheel on the ground, instead of having the scooter on the stand?

I took the starter out and took it apart and cleaned it well. wiped it down with alcohol, sanded the copper area where the brushes sit and put it together and slipped, more light faught with shoving it back in the hole and it now makes more noise.

Couldn't watch the video as it is marked private.
If the noise increased after working with the starter motor, it would be logical to think it is indeed starter related.

I suggest that you remove it again, nuisance as it might be, & apply a small amount/thin film of grease on the gear that engages the gear on the crankshaft. Re-install it. Hopefully you shall return to the noise level that existed prior to the initial removal of the starter.
