Post First Zuma
Greetings!

Ok, I have been looking for one of these for ages but am always a day late so to speak. After many disposable scooters I found a Zuma.
It's a 2001 CW50N/Zuma II according to the vin decoder, and that it was built in France? Fill me in folks, what's with the long name and France?
It has 185 miles on it and was parked in a garage in 2003. The fuel system was cleaned out and it already runs better than any of my Chinese cast offs.
Derestricting is next on the list of to do's.
What should I look out for, was this a good year etc. Any and all comments will be greatly appreciated!
(why in the world did my photo load this way!)


Thanks for reading this!

IMO, any Zuma whether it be a prebug (yours) or a bugeye that's not a 4T (2012+ I think) is a damn good, reliable scooter with an almost endless amount of modding potential. It's a great ride bone stock too. If you're keeping it stock or mostly stock then I say just follow the manuals recommended care and it'll last you a lifetime.

Thanks Frankenscoot! This scoot impresses every day. Had it out for it's first long spin and using GPS I was zipping along at 41mph. I'm 215lbs so it may have had some small work done to it. Unless they are that good stock, LOL.

There’s nothing wrong with the 2012+ 4T models. They’re just slower taking off and yes they are harder to mod but bone stock it’s a very reliable scooter and did 43 mph on flat with no mods plus gets 120+ MPG. It will out perform and last any Chinese scooter and also the Honda Ruckus. I’m a Honda guy but I don’t like any of their 50cc scoots.

41 mph is a bone stock speed .
Adding some kind of upgraded pipe will take your rpms up and add to your top end .
It doesn't take much to take those prebugs past 45 .
That bike is 35 lbs lighter than a Bugeye .
With a bbk kit they fly

Which raises the question of whether anyone's ever come up with some creative ways to shed a few pounds on a bugeye.

Welcome aboard! That's a nice find and running at 41mph seems it is in great condition.
