2009 Yamaha Zuma 125 Recalled for Fuel Pump Problem

Tue, 12 Feb 2013

Yamaha is initiating a recall on the 2009 Zuma 125 scooter due to an issue with its fuel pump. The recall campaign affects 8,700 units produced between July 2008 and April 2009.

According to documents released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there may not be the proper clearance in internal fuel pump components, potentially causing an inadequate supply of fuel. This could lead to difficulties starting the Yamaha Zuma 125, or, if the scooter is already in operation, could cause the engine to stall, potentially leading to a crash.

Yamaha dealers will replace the faulty fuel pumps with a new component. The new fuel pump is brown and is identified by the part number FS9-E3907-10-00, replacing the old pump which is black and has the part number FS9-E3907-00-00.
