They also sell that stuff at Home Depot, it's about $7 and there is more than enough to cover the area you looking at, and it is self sticking.

be sure to clean the plastic really well so the sticky stuff actually sticks, mine has since come off and I am not sure if it is going back on again.

well at home depots no one knows where anything is, so if I had a location it would just make it easier. If you say its a mat, or something for a tool box then I could possibly figure it out, but you never said what it was for. So I could wander around in there all day and not find it. also if you could get the skew number that would help too, and a pic of the isle its in

As a fellow Zuma 125 owner, I need to keep an eye on this.

Millage /Valve adjustments

It would be intresting to see how many miles people are clocking on the mighty Zuma 125, I am running around 3,500, I think this valve adjustment every 2K in kinda frequent any one else go over the valve requirment of 2K I did my last valve adjustment at 1,500 miles, what would happen if you went every 4 K, how or is there a way to nitce when valves are tight/lose

I just attempted my first time ever doing valves, but screwed up. I thought for the exhaust you had to be TDC on the exhaust stroke and had noticed they were way off. Well after massive clicking while running I gave up and brought it to the shop. I found out you can check both intake and exhaust on the intake TDC setting.

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.
