Yamaha Recall of Certain Model Year 2009 YW125 (Zuma 125) Scooters

Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—February 12, 2013.

SUMMARY: Yamaha is recalling certain model year 2009 YW125 (Zuma 125) scooters manufactured between July 2008 and April 2009 due to possible improper clearances in the internal fuel pump components. These improper clearances may cause an inadequate supply of fuel.

CONSEQUENCE: The limited fuel supply could cause engine stalling, increasing the risk of a crash.

REMEDY: Yamaha will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel pump with a newly designed fuel pump. The recall is expected to begin February 19, 2013. Owners contact Yamaha at 1-800-962-7926.

NOTES: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
