SOURCE: V-Belt flashing

Hi carms

Even although you have just had it serviced, the warning light is triggered by the mileage traveled. So if the belt appears to be Ok, then resetting it has to occur at the point when the indicator comes on. Having said that, I understand that scooter belts can weaken (and break) from internal weakening over time (heat and stress) and not just from external wear and measurement. Over the years I have read about belts breaking (other scooter brands & models) from high use and/or mileage even though they still externally measured within spec.

The "service limit" for the Majesty belt is 27mm (shop manual) or 12,500 miles - so to be safe it should all be interpreted as "replace belt upon the soonest of 12,500 miles or 27mm width"


If they have not replaced the belt in your recent service, then you could perhaps return to them to have it done, or reset the idiot light for you. OR you could do it yourself and see how you go.

If you're wondering where the area that the diagram above is indicating, the reset coupler is the white plastic coupler located under the tailpiece where the battery is located. The rubber strap securing the battery holds it in position and it is the only white coupler in the vicinity of the battery. I also read that you need to have the park brake off to perform this exercise.


I got some of this info from a great site dedicated to your bike. Check it out here. Thanks for using FixYa. A FixYa rating is a grewat reward for my time taken to address this with you. Cheers!

Hello i have a yamaha majesty yp400 i found out today that my bike should go 170 km but mine goes only 120 130 km maximum can u help


Hi, Jamal you may want to clean your air filters and make sure the throttle cables are adjusted for maximum slide opening for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.

Will not start


You've probably got a dead battery. I'd pick up a new one and invest in a battery tender if you won't be riding it regularly. They are cheap and easy to use.

Zuma 50 scooter running way too rich


Hi, Anonymous your instrument gauges and lights can alert you to most electrical and engine issues they can not warn you about failed engine gaskets or seals so your engine has to resort to old fashion alert methods of colored "SMOKE SIGNALS" here is a breakdown of their meaning:
1. COLORLESS OR SLIGHTLY BLUE SMOKE on start-up means your air/fuel mixture is at the right composition and everything is well burnt in your combustion chamber.
2. BLUE SMOKE on start-up is usually caused by failed valve seals dripping oil into the combustion chamber when the engine is not running.
3. YELLOW OR BROWNISH SMOKE at start-up means your air/fuel mixture is too lean. Too lean means that there is low fuel but high air mixture in your combustion chamber.
4. WHITE SMOKE on start-up may be caused by a blown head gasket allowing coolant to enter the combustion chamber and may start dripping out of the exhaust pipes or mufflers. Smoke while riding is usually caused by worn out or damaged valves, seals, guides, pistons, rings, or cylinder walls.
5. BLACK SMOKE on start-up is usually caused by too much fuel in the combustion chamber this can be due to air/fuel mixture adjustment too rich, accelerator pump improperly adjusted, faulty choke/enrichner or not in the off position, air filter dirty and clogged, faulty carburetor float needle and seat, pilot jet too large, fuel injectors leaking, smoke while riding is usually caused by the main jet being too large or a damaged carburetor.
It should be noted that aggressive or abnormal throttle operation will cause these conditions to manifest themselves exponentially.

Only 750 miles on scooter. Put away with stabilizer. Starts bar-o-o-m like it's going to run fine. Then stops and won't start. Checked plug and spark. Plugged line?


The stabilizer is a bad thing for some carbs. It has a chemical in it that can eat away seals and gaskets inside your carb. Grab a gasket set for it, replace those, make sure to spray the carb out, then put it all back together adn you should be ok.
