So the replacement pump solves the problem?  I could deal with that if a dealer would not give me grief about it.

I have sat on a T-Max once.  It impressed me as fairly tall (I have a 30" inseam) but not too bad.  This was only on the stand inside the shop.

Strangely enough, a lot of regular, non-maxi scoots are surprisingly tall and maxis surprisingly less so, in my non-scientific seat-of-the pants experience.  Back before the local scooter store folded, I tried out many Kymco and SYM non-maxis, especially that SYM 300, and felt they were pretty lofty.

Yamaha is replacing the fuel pump on their dime.  I offered to do the work but they said they need the dealer to do the work.  Cool by me I was trying to be nice and save them the $$.

I asked the lady at Yamaha if I could take to a particular dealer, she said should not be an issue....  I explained to her that I just don't trust most mechanics to work on scoots.  Most take the simple and turn it into an ordeal.  this is a SIMPLE change.  They will rape Yamaha but that is their problem since I did offer to make the change.

I have everything printed out for the mechanic regarding which color fuel pump to use etc... Even have a video ready for them to learn how to make the change.

It's a recall in Japan and I think Italy.  They have not issued a recall for the US.  Although they seem to be taking care of the issues.  She said to me that the emission is covered for 5 years.  We will talk a little more on Monday, she needed the VIN and I did not have it handy when we spoke.

Not yet waiting the paper work from Yammer and then we go from there.  I wanted to do the work myself but they insisted I had to have a shop do the work.

That's why if I can't fix my Majesty, I'll take it to the multi line motorcycle dealer in the valley since the dealers ride Burgmans and I'm sure their mechanics work on those Burgmans.

Nothing, its just if I ever have something thats beyond my abilities, I will take it to the dealer that I know works on the owners Burgmans, so they are comfortable working on scooters.

In March, I had to replace the rotor in the speed sensor because it was cracked in half, about a 45 minute job as I had to drill out the other half of the broken rotor.

If I ever have major work on any of our bikes not covered under warranty and that I can not do, I will strip the bikes of plastic and take them there. That is where they really screw you.

EXACTLY, my son and I will strip it down and put it in the back of his truck, they will get a naked bike to work on.

I wonder if the U.S. gets the 530cc model if Yamaha had solved all of the problems, sadly I've heard similar stories from other riders saying "Its a kick butt bike, when it will start"??  Hope you can keep yours running, Maggie, I can't imagine how frustrating that would be.

I am pasting this from our club board as I am to lazy to retype.


We have previously discussed the Tmax experiencing vapor lock and coughing and sputtering while riding.  Last night we experienced something different.  Snipped....


Wow! I know this is an old post but I'm very happy I went looking for any news on the Tmax. Deal killer for me. Premium gas? Never! Here in VT premium is no better than regular as far as alcohol content goes and might even be worse what with the gas sitting in the tanks at the station longer than the regular. I guess, I'm no expert.

I have a 2009 model TMax with, purchased in August 2010 with 1600 miles. I just turned over 9,000 miles and no fuel pump problem so far.
I currently having a starting problem battery/starter related but I am starting another thread to discuss that issue.
I have taken many short and long trips and once it started in the morning I would always be able to start it. My problem is won't start after sitting a few days not minutes. see next thread for more......
