Got me an pit bike upgrade!

Went from a cheap bicycle, to a mint condition 2009 Zuma 125. Only 1000 miles, got it for $900. I will also use it to ride to commute to work since I don't have to ever get on highways anyway, just a single lane side road with 45 mph speed limit. This should be able to do 60 at least. Gonna find out this weekend.

Super Sweeet! Zumas are the ultimate pit bike. Decent price, too.

Yeah they are. I've wanted a scooter as a pit bike rather than a Grom because you don't need 2 hands to operate it, easier to carry tires around (or beer), plus these can be found for much cheaper. I've seen plenty of the 50cc version but people were still asking $1000-$1300 for those and I want something that goes at least 50-55 so I can ride it to work as well. I've only seen a few 125s around and people are generally asking well over $1500 for them in similar condition. I really didn't want to spend this money now, but I just couldn't turn down the offer.

I imagine they're pretty easy to work on right? I've never worked on a scooter before, but can't imagine it being too difficult. They are carburated though, right? Never had to deal with that before, but there's always time to learn something new. My ride to work consists of speeds around 50-55 for about 80% of it, although that's only 3 miles, so as long as it's capable of doing that I'm fine with it. I don't plan on taking it on interstates or even highways.

Dude if you got that for $900 you absolutely stole that fucking thing. With a clean title those things pull $1800 all day long. You can keep that for the next 6-8 years and probably still sell it for $1500.

The 125's are air cooled, fuel injected. I got one as well, it's an '11 but the same exact thing. Love it. Just hate transporting it, miss my old XR70 that I had custom Pitbull TRS pins made for. I've hit 65 downhill with mine, but with my fat ass on it, dies around 62MPH on flat ground.

The new 50cc 4 strokes are turds, the 125 is the only way to go. And keep the stock muffler on it...aftermarket ones do nothing but annoy your pit neighbors when you're buzzing around the paddock at night...and they don't give you any more power. It's literally just more noise.

It is always those that use their brakes the least that want to upgrade them the most.

I know right!? I kept seeing these go for anywhere in the 1500-2000 range even with more miles, so I thought 900 was a damn good deal.

Good to know they're fuel injected...then I don't have to fuck with anything. And yeah I was planning on keeping it stock, after all it's a pit bike and I'll also use it a commuter to work. I don't want more noise. I HATE loud pit bikes, so I don't want to be THAT guy. It really makes for a great pit bike, although not as cool as a Grom, much more practical. Last weekend I wanted to go get some stuff from a nearby gas station and didn't want to unhook my trailer so i took the Zuma. I fit 2 bags of ice and a big water bottle in the storage compartment! lol...can't do that on a Grom, that's for sure!
