I bought a 2012 Zuma 50 in April of 2012. In May I took it in to replace my back tire. I informed them that Zuma was loosing a lot of drive power on hills. The said it must be the drive belt and the clutch weights. I commented that the bike was a little over than a year old. So consented to have the belt and weights replaced. Then the service manager told me it could take about a month to get the parts and that the upper management was aware and upset about this issue. I was really suprised and bothered as this was my main vehicle and this was a bike that is still in production and it shouldn't be hard to get the parts that in production. So I canceled the order for the belt and the clutch weights. Jump a months ahead and I was checking the gap on my spark plug and the damn thing broke off and there was no way for me to get the remaining piece out. That's my fault and have no problem paying for the repair and labor. Well the repair took about 3 weeks. I called to check on the progress, and low and beholed the service guy said that my cylinder and piston were worped due to over heating (even thought originally stated it was only a belt)I countered they're accusation. I always kept proper matenece oil, tranny fluid and coolant. At no point did I ever see the over heat light come on. They countered with we have never seen that happen any other way. I said order the parts piston ring set, piston, piston pin and the cylinder. They said that the part could be back ordered for a few months. This confounded me as Yamaha is a international bike builder and never heard of a major dealer having this type of parts supply problem. I made several calls to corporate and they said that the best they could do was to try to put a rush order on it. Everyone from the dealer on up to corporate were less than understanding. I still tried to no avail that the engine never overheated and felt this was a factory defect. I kept calling and was never getting a return call on the progress of getting the parts or work out something with the pricing of the repair...which is up to $725. Even two of the service personal stated that they would be pissed as well. This dealer Full Throttle Powersports, Inc in Lowell , NC. The corporate HQ out of Los Angeles was less then helpfull in fact they were condescending at almost ever call.
