There should be a screw on the side of the carb that goes in at an angle to adjust the idle mixture. You play with it when the engine is hot. You turn it to the right or the left til the engine starts to die and then back the other way super slow until the idle smooths out and gets faster. Then you readjust the idle speed screw if needed. That may help the starting. It may take some fiddling. The engine should be warm/hot.
New spark plugs are a good thing to install every few months or so especially in a 2 stroke.
You'll know it when you hear it. Play with both screws for a while and you'll figure it out. If the idle is really low then turn it up faster biut not so fast the scooter pulls. that will fry the clutch at red lights.
