Just took home a Zuma 125!

Postby Bubs » Tue May 26, 2009 8:03 pm

Well, I never thought it would happen but I just purchased a brand new vehicle! Being without a motorbike this summer (Triple's out of commission, '86 Razz blew up), I decided it was worth a go. Basically, it's a larger, more powerful version of the original Yamaha Zuma. This has a 125cc four-stroke, four valve SOHC single cylinder with fuel injection to boot!

This means that it will actually keep up with traffic, unlike my Razz, but still return 90-100mpg with a cruising speed of 55mph. I took it home today without even a mile on it, brand spankin' new. I have to break it in for around six hundred miles, so I haven't gotten it up to speed but it definitely has get-up-and-go even at one-third throttle and has plenty more to give at speeds that the '86 Razz was WOT.

Basically, it's a great all-round commuter. Cheap to run and cheap to insure, and a great way to establish my credit. I do not intend to rely on credit, but it will help if I eventually need to take out a home loan in the future.

I watched them prep everything, and the guy took it for a spin around the parking lot. They then showed me everything they checked, showed me how everything functions and I loaded it in the truck. I elected to not ride it home since it would be a 55mph road and I am strictly following break-in procedures. I rode it for a good sixteen miles yesterday and it rides great.

My only concern I have is figuring out this weird "oil-strainer" it has. I am a second year automotive student and I need to get a shop manual to figure out the removal/installation procedure for the 600-mile service. I would prefer to not pay $180 for an oil change, thank you.

Wow, very easy then! Thanks for the info and also thanks for the PDF service manual.

To the above, it's the gas cap.

Edit: However, it seems that my Adobe Acrobat cannot "decrypt this document". Anyone else having this problem?

a ride around the parking lot is not a test ride
you gota put a least 8km/5m on them , before you
give them to a customer ;~)
of course its a yahama and the quality is better than most
but still i'd take it for the road test.

Well, I suppose they should have done that. Thankfully, it runs and rides fine though.

Sorry for the double post, too late to edit my own one. Anyone else experiencing trouble opening that service manual PDF? It does not work for me.

Doesn't for me either.

I was able to get the manual all set. Thanks!

I've got myself around 40 miles on it now, about to go for another ride.
