Does anybody with a Zuma 125 live in So Cal? Turbo City will make a rack if there is enough interest, but Tom would need to see a Zuma in person to evaluate the task.

There are no Zuma 12's in SoCal.

Check out Zumaforums.net for several people in the area.

I don't have the time for another forum, if anybody on here wants to spread the word on Zumaforums then please do.

have you gone BBK yet
here is mine
if your interested this is less then $300 to get this fast, just the BBK, injector and cam shaft not accounting for the variator or exhaust im using
the seller is on zuma forums

I can go past 70 maybe 72 I just stop at 70mph
But acceleration time has doubled and even large hills I can hit 60

well start saving $300 for the BBK, its so worth it
like a whole new scooter and im not lying
I rode about 4000 miles 125cc
now about 1000 miles 155cc so much better only lost about 15 mpg too
quality forged parts too, not cast like some sellers have so its strong
hopefully it will last me

also even with stock exhasust the 155 is great and you can get it as cheap as $220 with no camshaft but that really wakes it up big time
even cheaper if you get the cast BBK but to me I would rather have the strength

Well shit god damn if I didn't just feel ok enough to ride the wee bone shaker this morning. Started right up too
Might have to look into some funky wind deflectors for the legs, was a tad chilly this morning on the ride in. For Ca anyway.

I don't mind the cold as, it was the dark that freaks me out. My normal commute has some road obstacles, potholes, change in surface height and other general oddities that having a clear view of the road ahead is makes for a much happier spine
I like riding at night when I can do some nice quiet back roads etc, but commute is a bit trickier. Maybe need an extra battery in the underseat compartment and a set of Hella's on the front to light up the night!
