Yamaha has recalled certain model 2009 YW125 (Zuma 125) scooters due to possible improper clearances in the internal fuel pump components. Yamaha says 8,700 scooters manufactured between July 2008 and April 2009 are affected.
Yamaha says these improper clearances may cause an inadequate supply of fuel, causing stalling, which can increase the risk of a crash.
Yamaha will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel pump with a newly designed fuel pump. The recall is expected to begin February 19, 2013.
Owners may contact Yamaha at 1-800-962-7926. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to safercar.gov. (NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V035000)
