Yamaha zuma (scooter) - by joe
Ok Iíve got over 1000 miles on my Zuma now. Letís start by saying when I got the zuma I was looking for basic transportation that got good gas mileage. I would like to thank all the guys here that helped me out with my questions about getting a moded scooter from the dealership. I am 6í1Ē tall and with work gear and helmet I am easily pushing 220 lbs.

I must say wow I was looking for basic transportation and got a fun little scoot. The first few miles seemed a bit sluggish but I know 2 strokes take a bit more to break in than 4 strokes. I did the dual headlight mod within the first few days. After about 300 miles the break in was coming along good. At 600 miles I changed the final drive oil. Then after 700 miles I did the throttle cam mod. At this point I also explored more then is required for the first service I pulled the pug and checked out the air filter. Now the zuma is getting up to 40 fairly easy tops out at the bottom of the speedo and climbs the hills better. It handles great on dry and wet roads and it even dose a fair job off road.

The only down sides I could find is the obvious only 2 choices for color.
It would also be nice if Yamaha offered some other part for it come on all you can get is a basket and windshield how about some of the nice parts you can get in Canada like the rally kit or the headlight guards from asia which wont fit our zumas they have smaller headlights. A braided stainless front break line would be nice also.

Over all I would say the zuma is a great scooter with a great after market support. Just remember you are buying a scooter and not a crotch rocket

Linhai Yamaha (scooter) - by Tom C
Made in China,2004 Geely FX16. Imported into USA as a restricted 49cc, 30mph max, 2 hp max. It is really a 82cc that easily does 47mph flat out. Fast off the line, gas mileage 63 mile per gallon at top speed. Looks sharp,lots of storage, quick and nimble. Now the bad- suspension bottoms out with 140 pound rider. No clearance to road, scrapes on corners, head light weak, tires very slick when wet, seat slopes forward too much, over all quality very poor.

GEELY LINHAI YAMAHA (scooter) - by MIKE LISANTI
MY SERIOUS TRAVEL scooter IS MY NEW Aprilia ATLANTIC 500 WITH FULL TOURING ACCESSORYS, BUT I SWEAR, I HAVE NEVER PURCHASED ANYTHING WITH SO MUCH PURE FUN INSIDE AS THE 2004 LINHAI Yamaha ENGINE GEELY JL50QT-16 ! IM A 56 YEAR OLD 200 POUND ADULT WHO MELTED BACK INTO A CHILD AS THIS YELLOW BEAUTY CAME FROM THE CRATE FULLY ASSEMBLED EXCEPT BATTERY JUICE AND OIL ... A QUICK TOP UP OF ALL LIQUIDS AND 54 MPH RIGHT OUTTA THAT CRATE ! IM OVERJOYED BECAUSE MY 2 OTHER scooters GAINED TOP SPEED AT ABOUT 1000 MILES ... AT 54 MILES ...AND THAT IS MILES, .. THE SMALLER YELLOW NUMBERS UNDER THE KILO MARKERS ... AT 54 MPH NEW AND TIGHT, IM ASSURED OF 58 TO 60 IM BETTING WITH BREAKIN, AND ELIMINATING THE OILMIX IM RUNNING IN THE TANK ALONG WITH THE STANDARD OIL INJECTION SETUP. POSITIVES FIRST : THE FASTEST SPEED IVE SEEN IN 49.5 CCS / SMOOTH SPRINGY SUSPENSION/SPRING LOADED TURN SIGNAL PUSH IN BUTTON FOR CANCELLING SIGNALS/FRONT HARD NOSE DROPS DOWN TO AUTO OPEN A STORAGE `BRIEFCASE` TYPE AFFAIR/ NICE UNDERSEAT STORAGE/MINE INCLUDED FREE REAR TRUNK/ABILITY NOT TO HAVE HEADLIGHT ON AT STARTUP UNLESS DESIRED/10.5 TIRES/QUIET,AND I MEAN VERY VERY QUIET ENGINE/LOUD HORN/DUAL MIRRORS/

NEGATIVES : REPLACE THE JITTERY AND NON STABLE MIRRORS/CENTERSTAND SCRAPES ON LEFT LEANS BUT MY 200 POUNDS IS A PROBLEM HERE I THINK/ADD AUTO DOOR TRIM TO REAR TRUNK LIP TO STOP A RATTLE THERE/ .... AND BY ALL MEANS CHECK OUT LINHAIS FROM EBAY, I GOT THIS INCLUDING DELIVERY TO MY DOOR FOR $831 !!!
