Question about 2008 Yamaha Zuma

1 Answer

My 2008 Yahama 49cc scooter has choke problems. It is an electric choke. When first starting from a cold start the choke does not come on. After playing around for manny minutes and attempts at starting, you can finally get it running but poorly. It almost seems as though it won't choke when cold and the choke won't pull off after it is warm. The bike has less than 200 miles. It was purchased in the fall and as the weather became colder, the problem got worse. Worst of all is that Yahama doesn't admit that there is a problem, and after one $350.oo service call it still acts the same. And I do not know how a scooter electric choke works.

Hi, Paul if you take your bike to a dealer for a specific issue that costs outrageous amounts of money only to have the same problem 2 days later your situation is not unique unfortunately and it is a double edged sword. First, you suffer the emotional stress and frustration of spending all your hard earned "Drachma" and your bike does not get fixed. Second, comes the realization that not only are the technicians incompetent but also the service manager for not doing anything about it, this isn't rocket science, it's a glorified lawn mower engine with extra cylinders and carburetors sometimes. You need to put an end to all the double talk, dancing around the issue, and a "we don't care attitude", but how you ask, very simple you exercise the "nuclear option" go back to the dealer and ask to speak to the owner or general manager if the owner is not there, then with a straight face and polite voice you ask him/her if they can provide you with the name and contact phone number of the person at your brand motorcycle headquarters in your country that can recommend a repair facility that will fix your bike because your local dealer either can not or will not. I guarantee you that is all the grease you need to get someone to light a fire under the proper persons rear end to resolve your issue "toot sweet" For more information about your issue and valuable "FREE" downloads that you will need please click on the blue links below and for more specific information or questions at no charge please feel free to contact me at xlch@mail.com Good luck and have a wonderful day.

SOURCE: Cold knock

This is just a suggest, mind you, but if its still under warrenty, I would run it by the dealer, because from what you write, it sounds like a little bit of piston slap.

That engine should be tight.

SOURCE: I have an 06 XL 1200 that just started choking out

This could be a variety of issue's from over choking, to bad fuel. Make sure your not leaving the choke on to long, as this can foul the plugs. Bad fuel could cause this, as water or other contaminents get into the float bowl and don't affect the enrichment ports due to fuel bypassing the float bowl. This would lead to the bike running worse as the enrichment knob is pushed back in. Last but not lease, could also be an electrical related issue due to the bike warming up and causing a short or open as stuff expands. I would change your plugs, then drain the float bowl into a clear glass jar to examine contents. if fuel and spark seems ok, you will have to look at electrical. plug wires, crank shaft position sensor, coil. It may take someone with the tools to test these components in order to diagnose the issue. If you see that the tach (if you have one) or lights in your display's flicker, it could also be battery related. loose ground. Many possibilities.

SOURCE: Yamaha TW 200 starts but won't run.

If the bike has sat for a long period of time without being run - the gas that is sitting in the carb(s) will shellac.. Then the carb(s) would need to be cleaned and "rebuilt"..

49cc taotao can't start with electric, only kick start. electric dies when brakes applied


Sounds like your battery is dead. Sometimes they seem ok, or read good on gauge...but just a little load kills it. May also be internal short or connection problem inside battery. Either way, I'd start there.

Problem starting scooter when cold.


You need to check that your automatic enricher (often called an auto-choke) is working. You should find then when the engine is cold, the scooter hasn't ran for at least an hour, the enricher will be short. Take it out of the carb and measure the plunger. Put it back into the carb. Then start the scooter and let it run for 5 minutes. Quickly remove the enricher, being careful around anything hot, and measure the plunger again. If there is no change, it's not working. The attached link may help you to understand what I'm talking about better.

You should also check the condition of your spark plug. If it's fouled, damaged, or gapped wrong it could be making starting more difficult.

A battery in poor condition will also make it harder to start. Battery checks link below.

Good luck with it.

My benelli 491 willnot start of the button first thing in the morning


Hi, Kevin and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Security alarm needs a reset.
6. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.

The choke is on the carb. Check if the carb set screw is set right, turn it all the way in and then back out 1 1/4 turns. then fine tune by 1/4 turn increments.
