2009 Yamaha zuma 125 recall q

yes.. 2009 was a long time ago:) I purchased a used 09 zuma 125. yamaha is currently honering the recall since the original owner did not do..

They are replacing the fuel pump under recall.. for those whom may of had this done... did a faulty fuel pump "engage" when they key was turned to the on position and the kill switch turned to the "on" positon?

My scooter fires up and runs perfect when you hear the fuel pump engage. After a period of riding.. you turn the scoot on and don't hear the fuel pump engage.. scoot don't start :)

Those symptoms of the recalled fuel pump issue?

If the fuel pump is not priming, most likely it needs replacement.

We will find out Tuesday when I pick it up. I was happy to find out yamaha would do the recall even though I'm the second owner.

The fuel pumps in the 2009 Zuma125s had hot run problems. Mine would just die after 15-20 min of running, or if it was a hot restart, it wouldn't.
The first fuel pump was replaced at just 600 miles under warranty, but it was the same pump, so I got a second recal notice and another pump. I sold the scooter to a friend 2 years ago, and it has performed flawlessly with the second pump.

Apparently some later models also had fuel pump problems. My 2012 never had a problem in over 8,000 miles, but apparently some did have fuel pump problems after 2009.
