Zuma 125 blog......
So I was hijacking another thread and still will :lol2
but I wanted a place to document my scoot and stuff with control over the first post :deal :D
So here goes:
First tank: 79 mpg (1/3 - 2/3 throttle)
Second tank: 83 mpg (1/3 - 2/3 - 3/3 (small amount) throttle)
Third tank: 77 mpg (1/3 - 2/3 - 3/3 (bit more :wink:) throttle)
Fourth tank 79 MPG (1/3 - 2/3 - 3/3 (bit more :wink:) throttle)
Fifth tank 82 MPG (1/3 - 2/3 - 3/3 (bit more :wink:) throttle)
Sixth tank 86.3MPG :gdog (2/3 - 3/3 (lots more :wink:) throttle)
Seventh tank 79.80MPG (mostly 1/2 to wot)
I think the mileage depends on the number of green vs red lights I get on my wee commute :dunno
Mods and silly add-on's
Garmin 60cx with garmin bicycle mount.
Rubber diamond plate for foot positions.
top box time

Mileage - After break-in service
8th tank of gas and after the tune up the mileage has dropped :(, this could be a combination of hard riding and many many red lights so time will tell.
8th fill up -MPG 73mpg (mostly hill, wot and red lights :waysad) :D
9th fill up - MPG 83 (more hills, long straights and no lights) :D
10th fill up - MPG 72.8 (:becca red light traffic :lol2)
So now a few tanks later I came to the conclusion that I will get 85+ on extend trips with little or no stops regardless of the hills etc.
Low to mid 70' when commuting. lots of filtering and wot from the lights etc.
Still not bad and if I can lose some weight I might get a little better still :hide
Fastest speed so far *63.7* MPH gps indicated. :lol2 :huh
51.7 -> 52 -> 52.2 - >53.2 -> 53.4 -> 58.7 ->60.3 -> 63.7
picked up a new 09 this April morning.
Got a fair deal from the san jose dealer and was in and out in 10 minutes :D
The back and forth with the other place made this an easy choice.
Of course it rained all morning and I had a fun ride back in a nice wet thunderstorm :lol2
u mind posting your OTD price? im just curious.
btw..my vino can hit 57-58mph indicated. im not sure what it really is GPS wise. tire pressure makes a huge difference in top speed.
Scrapped the led rear brake bulb idea, didn't know about the location, I will do the LED version (full led panel) eventually, nice to have a bright tail light in commuter traffic for sure.
Garmin GPS. Only issue is the one I caught will power off if I hit a large bump. Not a huge deal but kinda annoying, need to see if there is a easy fix for that other then wire it for power.
I seem to like to stretch out and not use the floor board too much, so I cut out some of my fav rubber diamond plate and stuck it on so it has some more grip and doesn't look so messy with all the scuffs etc on the smooth plastic.
:D (very klr I know!)
now to figure out the rear rack thingy since they are on back order from Japan.
Might go the welding route O'Hooligan mentioned :wink:
but I need to find a damn welder first that is local :scratch
My speedo is way off as expected, under 40 it is within 2- of actual, over 45 it is very optimistic :lol2 maybe as much as 5- of actual.
Feeling like it has loosened up since new but still is being treated nicely with break in going on.
Gary, here is the weld job of the eyebrow rack.<a href="http://s136.photobucket.com/albums/q161/ohooligan/?action=view¤t=IMG_0001-4.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i136.photobucket.com/albums/q161/ohooligan/IMG_0001-4.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a><a href="http://s136.photobucket.com/albums/q161/ohooligan/?action=view¤t=IMG_0002-1.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i136.photobucket.com/albums/q161/ohooligan/IMG_0002-1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>
And the "Batmobile"look!
Looks great, I have to source a local welder and see if they can fabricate my wee design :wink:
for your sticker
bound to be a way to get a nice size one for the front :D
Nice screen, what was that again, you told me over the weekend but i forgot :jump
The screen is from a R1200 roadster, try to look for a used one as they are quite pricey. Looks good, but only keeps the wind off the chest.
so far I have not really wanted for a screen other then the cool looks of course :D
installed the cup holder tonight, I get silly nervous drilling into the plastic :huh
but it went ok, heart rate dropped and it should be a useful addition.
slowly getting there.
Springs are starting to loosen up a bit and are not as abrupt, take off is much improved and top speed is gaining. Hoping for a bit more MPG also this time :pope
mini mod - ram time
I ordered up a bunch of ram mount stuff for the GS and the zuma from hotspice in vendors (ADV discount :clap)
The brake reservoir ram mount looked a bit more fiddly with new bolts needed and some cutting on the spacers. So I opted to use that on the GS :hide
The M8 bar clamp one however worked perfect. Removed the blot, replaced with the ram bolt and cut a hole in the clamp cover for a nice fit and stock look.
Now I can mount my wee gate/garage door opener and even my otterbox if needed, or the spot for when I am out in the wilderness :hide :lol2
