ENGINE MAINTENANCE

  • null

    Clutch:

    1. Remove right side cover from engine.
    2. Place a small dab of grease at gear mesh area.
    3. Replace cover.
  • null

    Carburetor:

    Depending on dusty riding conditions, clean air filter every 5 to 20 hours of operations by removing the filter cover to access the screen and element. Wash element with a degreasing agent. Be sure element is completely dry before reassembly.

  • Spark Plug:

    Remove spark plug and inspect for excess carbon build up. Clean regap to 6mm-7mm if necessary. Check plug after every 20 hours of operation. A suitable replacement plug is NGK BP 6L if you can find it. Otherwise go for the NGK B-6L. The NGK R7-HS is also recommended for better performance and smoother idling.

  • null

    Exhaust system:

    After 20 hours of operation check exhaust pipe for excessive oil and carbon build-up. Be sure to use supplied support strap to secure exhaust muffler to a sold anchor point on bike frame or engine.

    1. Remove exhaust pipe cap by loosening the retaining screw.
    2. Pull cap and baffle out of pipe.
    3. Clean with degreaser, rinse and dry.
    4. Re-assemble.
    NOTE: Excessive periods of low speed operation, idling or leaving fuel petcock in the “on” position during shut down periods may cause the pipe to become clogged with unburned fuel.
  • null

    Chain:

    Every time bike is ridden check the tension of the drive chain by

    1. Rolling to bicycle forward to remove slack from the bottom of the chain.
    2. Find the center and push downwards on the top of chain while measuring the deflection.
    3. Tighten chain if deflection is more than 15mm.
    4. Low speed “chain rattle” can be eliminated with the application of graphite grease to chain.
  • null

    Head Bolts:

    Tighten all fasteners after each five hours of operation. It’s most important to check cylinder head bolts tighten in an X pattern to 12 ft/lb using a torque wrench. A two piece cylinder and head design engine requires head bolts to be kept tight.

    IMPORTANT: Check head bolts before each and every ride, vibration can cause them to loosen and blow a head gasket.

    CAUTION: Do not over torque or head bolts may break off.

  • Right Side Gears:

    Remove cover plate and keep small amount of heavy grease on gear train.DO NOT OVER GREASE as leaks will occur and also may adversely affect clutch operation. Regular greasing if required will help reduce gear wear and keep gear train quiet.

BICYCLE MAINTENANCE

  • Checklist:

    Before each usage it is recommended a detailed check of the bicycle, observing any little malfunction, make sure that all screws are well attached.
    Grab the handlebar with both hands, and slowly shake the bicycle. Any noise, implies a malfunction. Try to find the source of the malfunction, before you begin using the bicycle.
    If you don’t succeed in finding the source of your malfunction, please get in touch with an authorized person, from the service company.

    • The bicycle must be cleaned for dust, with a soft piece of cloth, every time it is necessary.
    • Periodic, regarding the conditions it’s being used, the bicycle must be cleaned from mud using a solution of water and soda. After cleaning, it is recommended that you oiled the mechanism with soft oil (too much oil may result in a mud deposit on the mechanism).
    • The chain should be oiled only with bike chain lube oil spray.
    • Breaking system must be checked regularly and the brakes hangers must be changed if they are worn-out.
    • All consuming parts must be checked regularly and replaced if necessary.
  • Tire Pressure:

    1. Normal pressure should be between 2.5-3.2 bars.
    2. If you don’t have a device to check the pressure, grab and push with maximum force the tire, and observe the contact surface between the tire and the ground. If the contact surface is small, the tire pressure is close to normal. If the contact surface is big than 18cm the tire pressure is low.
    ATTENTION: if the tire pressure is too high it may blow up.
  • Brake System:

    1. Always check both front and rear braking system.
    2. The braking system must be maintained clean, without any oil spots, so that it can inflict maximum friction and for the safety of the system and yours too.
    3. Brakes are designed to slow down the bicycle, not only to stop it. When coming down on a hill you must slow down by pressing both front and rear brake.
    CAUTION: It is extremely dangerous to use only the front brake.
  • Shifting Gears System:

    1. Visual check the shifting gears mechanism, the cables, the 2 shifting gears levers.
    2. Shift gears only when you are running the bicycle and never pedal on the opposite way when doing this operation.
    3. By shifting with 3 gears, the chain position on the chain wheel will reposition itself , and by auctioning the shifting levers with 6-7 gears , the chain on the free wheal will reposition itself.
    ATTENTION: After shifting the gears, on the cassette or crankset there will not be any friction between the crankset mechanism and the chain otherwise there will appear usage on both the mechanism and chain.
    It is forbidden to shift gears, when stationing any malfunction may concur to an injury.
    In case any malfunction will appear please go to the authorized service center.
  • Consumable Parts:

    • Periodically you need to check all the consumable parts (brake hangers, cables, tires, tubes, spokes, saddle and accessories).
    • It is necessary to contact the service provider when a malfunction occurs in order to get the issue solved.
  • Possible Malfunctions & Risks:

    The most common malfunctions that may appear are the same on all bicycles Flat tire and usage of different parts. Please pay attention to all the details in this manual, or injuries could happen. Also accidents could happen for braking too hard, when not pay attention running on wet roads. Braking hard, using the front brake, may lead to serious accidents.
