Default Ruckus wont start - making a weird sound.

Let me preface this by saying I know nothing about scooters and am a complete novice. The engine would not key start and i was able to kickstart it for about a week after the normal way to start gave out. It no longer will start either way so i went ahead and replaced the battery. I just replaced the battery and it still will not start. I am able to turn the electronics on (blinkers, red odometer light up) but that is the extent of it. Can any of you give me some pointers on where to go next? Thank you.

Where is the weird sound coming from, the front of the bike or the engine area?
You could check the fuses under the plastic cover on the positive + side of the battery terminal.
You could try replacing the spark plug & coil(the wire connected to the spark plug).
Also listen for the fuel pump to activate when you turn the key, to make sure that it is working.
Hope this helps.
