Hop Up Your HPI savage x 4.6 ss rtr with aftermarket parts
So I got my new Zuma to my garage from the dealer and for the life of me I could not figure out how to open a Yamaha Zuma 50cc Scooter Seat Trunk Compartment. The seat or trunk compartment on the 2009 Zuma 50cc is the only access point for the fuel (which was getting low!) and the oil filler caps. Whats more, the Yamaha Zuma instruction manual was IN the seat compartment - in the very trunk that I could not open!
I looked all over the internet for the information…any information on how to open the seat. I found a few great resources, but nothing specifically about how to open the trunk.
After banging on the seat with my hand while turning the key, pushing the key, turning the key on and off, etc etc, I decided to just take the scooter back to the dealer the next morning to, in my mind, “fix” a broken switch or something.
I digress…before I decided to throw in the towel, I called the dealership and spoke to the fella who sold me the moped. He said “turn the key to the left” to which I replied “I did!”.
So anyway, being a mechanically minded person, I was insulted with my own lack of knowledge on this matter and frustrated that there were no GOOD explanations online as to how to open the Zuma Trunk! SO (drumroll) for your amusement, here’s how to do it:
Step 1 - Put the key in the ignition
Step 2 - Turn the key to the left (that’s counter clockwise)
Note - DO NOT PUSH DOWN ON THE KEY, EVIDENTLY ITS A MECHANICAL SYSTEM NOT ELECTRONIC.
Note 2 - Turning the key to the left, your instinct tells you that you’re going to break the key off in the lock - not so…
I answer my email - if you have any questions or want to join my little Zuma Club of online buddies, email me (find the contact me area of this blog)
