I'd like to clear a few things also, my scooter was slow for my taste with the 72cc 2t Malossi kit so I changed the whole motor with a 180cc 2t from a runner fxr ! So from around 14-16hp I went to about 21-22hp! Then I was really pleased with great acceleration and top speed!
But on the downside...the gasoline consumption was ridiculously high! I was filling the 10lt tank almost every two days.
So,I'm not expecting to have the same performance with the converted electric one,that would be too expensive to achieve...
But I'm a bit confused with the motors out there.Am I supposed to take a high kv/v one with less watts for more rpm,
or more watts and less kv/v ? Considering that I will be using the cvt of course.

Looking at the BEC your using are you sure that its rated for 50V+ as it looks like a tiny turnigy one which will only do up to 40V. Those fuses look like AC house hold ones, I doubt that they will help and might even cause problems. With the Throttle been a hall effect one it will not give you a full range of control as it has a different voltage range than a Pot throttle.

For testing / getting the motor to spin, just get some used 12v lead acid that is lying around somewhere and wire that up.
I second the motion for HK packs but would go LiFePo myself.
