People are crazy about the Yamaha
Zuma, and if you own one you probably
know why. They are a blast to ride, extremely reliable, look great, have good aftermarket support,
and get 70+ mpg. They have a 2-stroke engine, are low maintenance, and have a top speed of about 40mph
without modifications. They have wide semi-knobby tires
so they can handle dirt, gravel roads, and even mild trails. A wide variety of performance parts
are available such as: exhausts, variators, clutches, big bore kits,
carburetors, road tires, and much more. Yamaha didn't import the
Zuma into the U.S. for 2006 and 2007 because of strict 2006 emissions
laws. They tweaked a couple of things for the 2008 Zuma to make it
comply with the standards so now it's back in the U.S.! If you are looking for a scooter, the Zuma
is a great choice. The most common complaint about the Zuma is the
headlights. They have dual bug-eyed lights but only one light is on
at a time. One side is the low beam and the other side is the high.
Fortunately, we've solved that problem with our dual headlight wiring
harness which makes your Zuma have two highs and two lows using the stock
switch. It's great for riding at night!

transmission also includes a two-shoe centrifugal clutch and fixed drive
For convenience, it features an automatic choke and electric start.
It's also oil injected so you don't have to pre-mix oil into the gas.
