Post Resurrecting an old hobby, but where to find parts?
Once upon a time I was a humble owner of a fun little Zuma. I had big plans for it. But the hoodlums of a crummy small town changed everything when they cut the chain and stole it away. Eventually, it faded to a memory with an unhappy ending. Having little interest in the four stroke monstrosities that hijacked the good Zuma name, my scooting days seemed like they'd come to an end.

Now, many years later, I am hoping to once again become a humble owner of a fun little two stroke Zuma. If all goes well, and no odometer shenanigans are revealed, I may soon come into possession of a low mileage 2009 with a handful of upgrades already in place, all for a decent price. But finding the parts I would want is not as easy anymore, seeing as it's technically an obsolete bike. I think I should be okay to find a good BBK and carb that would suit my needs. But I'd like to spice up the aesthetics with JDM tail lights and the old Canadian OEM low windshield. Can't seem to find them anywhere though. If anyone has suggestions it would be greatly appreciated.

The JDMs are definitely looking like they may be out of circulation. I guess I could always look into removing the antenna signals and rigging my own wiring to imitate the same look. I never was good with wiring, but I guess it's nothing I can't educate myself on.

Thanks for the info on where to shop. Looks like between scooter tuning and dynoscooter I should be able to get just about everything I need. The deficit of available options really underscores just how much of a shame it is that Yamaha had to take the Zuma in the four stroke direction. These older versions are great bikes with so much potential, but it's much harder to capitalize on it.

Just one question. What is scooter turd shop?

When I was in the first years of college, I was working at a car repair shop. I can say for sure that none of us liked to mess with scooters, especially if it was a matter of replacing the chain.

Well, I'm suddenly not building anything, now. I've had the worst, heartbreaking luck with scooters. My old Zuma was stolen years ago, before Maryland did titles for them. Never found it. Once again I find myself the victim of a stolen scooter. Frustratingly, I know who did it. My evil SOB (now, former) landlord made it disappear, along with everything else I owned. Psychotic nutjob.

Even still, I hope to eventually build my ideal daily commuter. I saw an 09 zuma listed on craigslist in NOVO for a fair price. Trying to get in touch with that guy, but so far no response. If I can't get that one I may be up dookie's creek. These 2t bikes are getting quite difficult to find.

Yes, still in Maryland. The one I'm seeing listed right now has only 2900 miles. But the guy won't respond. It was only listed a couple days ago, hope it didn't seem that fast.

Canadian sentenced to nine years for endeavouring to join IS

A 29 year old Canadian was sentenced on Friday to nine years in prison for trying to travel overseas to join the Islamic State group.

Ismael Habib was the first person to be found guilty at trial under a law banning people from trying to leave Canada to commit a terrorist act.

"This wasn't a utopian or irrational project of a manipulated adolescent. moderately, It was done with perfect an understanding of the objectives of the Islamic State and its methods used, quebec Court Judge Serge Delisle said.

"The offender increased his efforts to get to Syria to join the Islamic State.

"He didn't plan on getting there to pass the time a passive role. He was ready to do what's necessary for the Islamic State, just about dying,

The judge sentenced him to eight years for needing to leave Canada under a 2013 terrorism law, And one year for providing false information to acquire a passport.

minus the time Habib already served in pre trial custody, He will spend the next six and a half years in prison.

"It is a harsh punishment, district attorney Francois Blanchette told reporters.

He said he consideration Habib's moldova dating "Very intense adherence to the (Islamic problem) Group's ideology" Was a factor in the sentencing.

Habib is the son of an Afghan father and a Canadian mothers.

The trial heard that he tried to secure a fake passport from an undercover policeman after his own was revoked following a failed 2012 attempt to reach Syria, via he was detained in Turkey and deported to Canada.

The defense argued that police tricked him into confessing that he want to travel overseas to join IS and die for God.

His wife and two toddlers were also living in the war torn nation, Habib told a legal court.

The tell, but nevertheless, Rejected his testimony, Noting that Habib had scanned online dating services and was living with a woman in Canada when he was arrested last year.
