So next time I will do it. I had no problem with checking the intake and on the fan there is a mark you can line up to get perfect TDC which I used. Adjusting the valves is super easy I even bought the special tool. I became a expert on the exhaust side laying on my back so I know if I ever have to adjust in the future its easy, im sure the intake side is even easier.

This scooter is dead simple to adjust, I cant see why everyone doesnt do it themselves. Except for my screwup it was very easy.
If it's the same tool used for all the other Asian scoots and small motorcycles, it's the best thing since sliced bread. I love that tool.

What's the "official" Yamaha specs for bore and stroke, and power output in hp and n/m torque on the Zuma? Is it a SOHC with two valves?

It used to be you could buy just the real common 9mm locknut/4 mm adjuster stem tool separate from the whole set, which is what all of my bikes use. Still a valuable tool that saves some effort, when used along with the proper feeler gauge.

I've done my part someone get me some specs..

Zuma engine specs:
52.4mm bore x 57.9 stroke
10:1 compression
air-cooled SOHC
I can't find any published power numbers, but 7-8 hp is about where I'd put it stock. It runs well and will do 55 mph on level ground.

How many miles are on the Zuma now and how many miles have you put on the 1200 since you got the Zuma?

I got the zuma in april/may I think and have just over 2222 miles on it, the GS has been taking a break since all 3 rotors needed replaced, but I probably put 2k on that as well. Certainly not the commuter miles since I take the zuma 99% of the time.

Plus this year has not been a big traveling year, only a few trips. Hopefully next year will put some good miles on the gs as well as the zuma they are both real fun just different types of fun.

Thanks topless for the specs, just wanting to compare the Zuma engine against my Cubster's conversion.

Interesting! I saw a Yellow Zuma at the dealer the other day and was so close to snapping it up. I'm putting a lot more miles on my Sym HD200 than my Silverwing but as you say - both fun just different types of fun.

Why wait til next year for trips? I thought you guys in Cali had beautiful weather all year. Take a long trip on that Zuma - post some pics so we can ride along from out armchairs.

So I finally got around to being able to try out the bags I had made by an inmate.
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=487221


out of the compartment with loops for a carry/shoulder strap


The Msr bottle holders, the large and smaller sizes, migth have been a tad conservative on the length for the small one but it fits ok. Both have vertical and horizontal webbing for tying down in various postions on GS and scooter

No this is not the tool, its an actual yamaha tool I ordered for about $4 shipped, even though this could probably work if its small enough
