Icon6 Anyone know how to change the electric starter?

Hey guys, I am having issues with my electric start on my 03 Honda Ruckus. The scoot starts fine with the kick starter and there are no other issues with it other than the electric start not working. I hear the relay "click" but nothing else happens when the start button is pressed. I am horrible with electrics, but I have tried checking continuity between the switch and the battery/relay etc. I don't know where the actual starter is on the motor to check the starter itself though.

If anyone could point me in the right direction on what to do, please let me know, thanks! Any other suggestions on things to check are welcome as well. Also, if more info is needed just let me know. I've done a lot of searching and I can't find anything that is too specific on what to do, and a lot of people don't actually post their solutions if they've figured it out...

Thanks in advance.
