You should be able to get a pristine one for 2k or under.

Check out my link below for my experiences with a Zuma 125.
+1 all around.

Mine is for sale, reluctantly. I love my Zuma, but the time has come for it to become someone else's consort.

Well, made a deal today on a low mile 2009 Zuma 125.

Less than 1000 miles, just a few tasteful upgrades (better mirrors, harness mod that runs both lights at the same time, etc)

It's in great shape and I feel like I got a good deal.
Best thing is, is that it is about 6 hours away but the guy is taking the family on vacation in FL next week and has to come right by my house, so he can drop it off on the way.

Serves me right for not checking forums while I'm at work

Congratulations. You'll have tons of fun.

Be sure that the bulbs were replaced with dual 35 watt ones. The stock bulbs draw too much current when they are both on, and you'll eventually end up with an undercharged battery. The other fix is to switch the Yamaha LED taillight, or the KOSO Afterburner integrated rear lights so you can save enough amps to run dual 55W headlights.

Once your butt breaks in, the seat hump is no big deal

If you're ever looking for a bump in engine size check out Race Concept on Facebook. He's a very knowledgeable, and reliable vendor.

Fuel Pump

Isn't the 2009 the one's with the fuel pump problem? Maybe it's been replaced.

All 2009 models have now had the recall issued, so there is no problem getting the fuel pump replaced free of charge at the dealer. Initially only the early built 09s had the recall. Neither of my 09s had a problem in 4K miles, but I did get fuel pump replaced by the recall on my current zuma.

You can phone up your local Yamaha shop , Give them the Vin and they ll run it to see if it's bad. If so it's a free repair.

No worries, the previous owner already had the fuel pump replaced at the dealer under the recall.

Bama67, I was on the web last night and saw that our great state of Alabama no longer titles scooters less than 150cc. I researched a little further and noticed that no registration is required, if of course, I'm reading the statutes correctly. Please let me know what they tell you at the courthouse. I think the law just changed in Jan of 2012 or 2013.

It would be awesome not to have to mess with tagging or title issues.

Really? That would be great. I will let you know what they say. I don't get home from this drilling rig for another week or so, but I will let ya'll know.

I recently put an AL tag on my Super 8 150 (149.6cc). They gave me a tag & Registration for it but no title and no AD Velorum Tax. My Tag was less than $12.
