The Yamaha Zuma 50FX is the third generation of the Zuma family of scooters. It has made waves in the scooter community, particularly due to the introduction of a 4-stroke engine and fuel injection. While the Zuma 50FX is a great vehicle by itself, to get the most from their scooters, many riders choose to add accessories and parts.
However, as you modify your scooter to fit your needs, you may wonder where the right balance between performance and safety is. Naturally, the answer to this depends on you and your comfort level with scooters. Here are some of the best motorcycle parts and accessories for a Yamaha Zuma 50FX that you may want to consider.
Performance vs. Safety Parts for Your Yamaha Zuma 50FX
You may consider upgrading your scooter’s carburetor to help optimize your fuel-to-air ratio and fuel flow. For example, consider the Mikuni Flat Side TM Series 4-Stroke line of carburetors. Whenever making changes to your fuel system, be sure to follow the manufacturer specified ratings to avoid possible damage to your engine from running too rich or too lean.
Alternatively, you may consider upgrading your tires from stock. Performance tires can give you more grip for superior handling or less friction for greater speed. For example, you could change your Zuma 50FX tires for the Pirelli SL 60 Scooter Tires which offer enhanced grip in a variety of conditions.
If you want to improve your scooter’s safety measures, there are plenty of OEM and aftermarket parts. The BikeMaster Scooter Mirror and the Slipstreamer Scooter Windshield can help you maintain visibility on the road. Alternatively, an upgraded grip such as ProGrip 728 Anodized Grips can help you keep your scooter under control at all times.
One of the best parts of owning a scooter or motorcycle is the opportunity to make it your own. Buying Yamaha motorcycle parts, both OEM and aftermarket gives you the chance to get more performance and greater safety from your Yamaha Zuma 50FX.
