Post So my C3 smokes my Zuma....thought it was the other way...
Had a 2009 C3 for a few years, now has 16k miles on it.

Bought a 2009 Zuma with 4k miles because I heard that it, and 2 stroke engine scooters in general, had more power/faster

Both are stock. New spark plug on Zuma (supposedly, just bought it from someone)

Uphill - same, around 28 mph
Downhill - Zuma 44, C3 42
Flat - Zuma 37, C3 41

Hmm....anyone know what gives, or is a C3 just supposed to be faster and what I read is wrong? Thanks!

First thing with the zuma is to see what main jet is in the carb. If it's a 76 you ot the junk carb. If it's an 80 make sure the throttle mod has been done. Then on to maintenance unless you have proof the belt has been replaced in the last 2 years get a new one check your rollers and make sure your tires are properly inflated

Sounds like something is off with the zuma. My c3 is painfully slow. My zuma 50 2 stroke ran circles around it.
