They'll die very fast, if they make the scooter move at all. The scooter will probably try to draw 6-10 amps when it starts, which is about ten times as much as the 9V batteries can supply. They might even blow up.

And I was thinking that i can take a gas weed whacker and attack the motor to the back of a normal scooter and possibly it would go but i just don't know if the motor is powerful enough.

Size matters. They will die too fast.
