Yamaha is recalling 8,700 units of its 2009 Yamaha YW125 scooters, better known as the Yamaha Zuma 125 to two-wheeled urbanites. Affecting machines made between July 2008 and April 2009, the recall concerns a possible improper clearance in the internal fuel pump components, which may cause an inadequate supply of fuel to the engine.
Since an inadequate fuel supply could cause the engine to stall, Yamaha is replacing the fuel pump with a newly designed one. The recall is expected to begin February 19, 2013, and concerned owners can contact Yamaha at 1-800-962-7926. As always the NHTSA is also available at 1-888-327-4236 and safercar.gov.
