Changing the Zuma headlight bulbs
by: Rick Rudge

Hello Alan,

I'm sorry that you're having some problems with your Zuma.

Well, naturally, you get access to the headlight bulb through the back, so you're forced to pull the whole thing off. You've already done that. Good for you. Just pull off the headlight wiring coupler and then remove the bulb holder cover by turning it counter-clockwise.

Oh, and it would be in your best interest if you went to ZumaForums web site, and downloaded their yamha_zuma_yw50_service_manual.pdf This service manual will be a big help to you on any of your do-it-yourself projects with the Zuma.

The ZumaForums web site is great for any Zuma owner, and I've learned a lot from going there. Best of luck.

Battery Tender Junior in package

A battery tender like the Battery Tender Jr. can make all the difference in whether your scooter will start right up each spring, after being stored for months.

Just about every scooter owner needs to have a battery tender, sometimes called a trickle charger. Unless you are lucky enough to live in a climate where you can ride all year long, chances are your scooter will be put on ice, figuratively-speaking, for at least a couple months every winter.

One of the key steps in winterizing a scooter is to protect your battery from draining during its "rest" period. This can – and will – happen if you leave your battery sitting untended in your cold scooter over the winter, even if it's in a garage or shed.

Read our review or go right to to buy this highly recommended Battery Tender Jr NOW...


ATTENTION! I have had to delete the Scooter Forum for this site, unfortunately. Despite my best efforts, I could not adequately prevent daily attacks by hackers and spammers. Even though most of their posts did not go public, they still cluttered up my website host's server space, jeopardizing my account. I appreciate everyone's contributions over the past few years and I apologize for having to do this.

Wondering why your scooter question never got posted?

Chances are, there is a good reason. Did you...

If you "checked yes" on any of the points above, then I've deleted your post. Sorry, but I have standards. Feel free to re-submit, following the instructions I have everywhere on the site.

Also... all submissions have to be reviewed by me, and I am currently backlogged. Comments go live without approval, but still take 30 to 60 minutes to show up, so don't repost them, please.
