    I do have YAMAHA rear rack installed which is used in the mounting system but I also fabricated some brackets that mount to the rear most OEM mounting bolts and exted rearward to the back of the case... I'll take some close up pics later and post. I'm not 100% finished as i have some spacers in play that i will be replacing you some tube stock...

    +1 on the highway pegs. They are my favorite addition to the Zuma.

    Oh man, what a trip to SD and back 2340 was mileage... First thoughts, need bigger bike for a ride like that...:rofl I did install TST, 1000# contra spring, and 11g sliders day before I left so no really testing to compare stock to modded. I also have 12g sliders I'm going to be playing with. Accel seems quicker but the biggest difference I noticed over stock it it seems to stay "hooked" up better and maintain speed on hills. It still drifts off but it takes some pretty big hills to pull speed way down... I plan on doing a better review when I get time, catching up on work and house stuff has been crazy...

    I just bought a new 2012 Zuma 125. I thought I had the only white one in existence. I'm pretty sure I did get the last one in the state. I'm going to get the rack, and install a top box, then use soft saddlebags, and stuff whatever I can between me and the trunk. I also have to sit farther back than most. http://www.zumasrus.com/zdox/125prod13.html

    I did find out the Zuma 125 will carry 345 pounds, but I weigh 220. Will have to pack light. I don't plan on a windshield, I wear a tight fitting full face helmet and earplugs.

    I have really enjoyed your thread, anything new with the scoot? I am considering purchasing a windshield, as the temps are getting cooler. How do you like yours? Thanks

    Electricman, the windshields are great, ugly as shit, but very functional. Mine has only been off one time and it was back on the same day!
