2009 Zuma 125 Fuel pump issues

Maybe this post will be of some help to other forum members.

I'm the second owner of a 2009 Zuma 125cc scooter with only 375 miles. Scooter is out of one year factory warranty by several months. Several weeks ago scooter started having fuel pump starting issues similiar to those I've read about on the Zuma forum. Fuel pump would not come on to pressurize the system which caused the scooter to not start. This happens randomly may start OK for days and then you go to turn key on you do not hear the fuel pump come on. Called Yamaha factory service at 800-952-7926 was told to take in to my local dealer. Unloaded at my dealership and scooter started fine service tech rode it around parking lot for 5 minutes came back and would not restart. You could not hear or feel the pump come on. He tells me he will check it out and will call the Yamaha tech line and see if they will cover the repair. One week later service techs calls and said he can't dulicate the problem and that he has checked out all wiring and electical connections and the battery and everything is OK. Go down to pick up scooter and decide to ride it around for a few minutes to try to dulicate problem. Make a 2 mile loop and return to dealer and scooter will not start. Service tech said he will call Yamaha Tech line and discusss the issue. Two hours later service tech calls and tells me the good news that Yamaha will repair the fuel pump under the Emmisions Warranty. Service tech said after 9 years he has never heard of a repair under the Emmisions Warranty. Factory tech said its something that just started. I'm just happy its being repair at no cost to me.

Cool. Good persistence.

For the members of this forum who have (or are considering) a Zuma 125, could you find out if the replacement fuel pump has a new part number, or are they just continuing to throw bad ones in as replacements?

I'll check on the part numbers to see if they are the same when repair is complete. Service writer said it could be a couple weeks. Hoping they made some changes to the pump.

The new pumps are a re-design. If yours failed.......then start after a cool down....say overnight....It`l only get worse...... Order a new one from Yammi......the bad ones have been purged from stock......Install it...and you`l be ok.....

fuel pump issues

Only took one week for Yamaha dealer to order and replace fuel pump. No cost to me covered under Emmisions Warranty. Service tech said the fuel pump was a new design. Thanks to Yamaha for stepping up and repairing a bike that was out of one year warranty by 6 months.

Fuel Pump

well I have around 2500 miles on my 125 ( 09) and it has started to act up, when I turn the key on it does not make the noise of the fuel pump, if I repeat the precess it does finally make the noise and it fires up, but thanks to the info here I will use the emissions warranty info when I hit the dealer ,,thanks

I just replaced the fuel pump myself. It went bad at about 830 miles. The gasket and pump cost $80. It's pretty simple. The worst part is taking everything off to remove the fuel tank.

No Charge

Yamaha did the exchange for no charge even though the warranty has expired, it was covered under the emmissions warranty, just an FYI ,, good to know
