 2007 yamaha c3 scooter. i did not thave the option of that model on your drop down menu so i just picked anyone to continue with the complaint. it is a c3 49cc scooter.fuel pump shuts off and you are in traffic or turning.it had shut off several times during that day and i did not want to get injured or die because of it shutting down without any warning.very dangerous.i managed to be on the side so was able to pullover when the engine died.called yamaha and they said they will replace it but did not make it a recall for safety issues. they should. yamaha said they will replace the pump even though it was out of warranty but that was 2 months ago and my scooter has been sitting in the yamaha shop since the second week of june 2010.they said they are waitng on fuel pumps from japan two months now !!
