Important Safety Information
A mini bike can provide many years of service and pleasure, provided you take responsibility
for safety, properly maintain your mini bike and understand the challenges you may
encounter while riding.
This mini bike has been designed for younger riders. However, not all youngsters meet the
physical and emotional levels that are needed for riding. Before parents allow any children
to ride this mini bike, we strongly recommend that both of you read this entire manual so
you are fully informed before deciding if your children are ready to ride. Listed below are
some of the most important safety measures one should take when riding.
! DANGER Ride with proper attire The following statement is a proven fact: ``Helmets
significantly reduce the number and severity of head injuries.” Never ride your mini bike
without a helmet or eye protection. Even a crash at slow speed can result in a fatal head
injury if you are not wearing a helmet. Monster Moto recommends wearing helmets that
have been certified for safety by helmet testing organizations which are independent
from the helmet manufacturer. We also recommend that you wear other approved safety
gear such as elbow and knee pads. Always wear shoes, keep laces tied, and never ride
barefooted or with sandals.
! WARNING Never Carry a Passenger This mini bike has been designed for ONE rider
only. There are no passenger pegs, footrests, handles or seat room for a passenger. Riding
with a passenger can interfere with your ability to operate and/or control the mini bike
and may result in serious injury or death.
! WARNING Ride Off-Road Only This mini bike has been designed and manufactured
for off-road use only. The mini bike is not equipped with lights, turn signals, horn and other
features required to drive a mini bike on public roads.
! WARNING Ride Within Your Limits Never attempt to ride your mini bike in a manner
that is beyond your skill level. It takes time to learn proper riding skills. Learn to ride your
mini bike step by step. Start by practicing on safe terrain at slow speeds and gradually
build your skill level. Instruction from an experienced rider(s) is highly recommended.
! DANGER Parental Supervision Required The MM-E250 is an electric power sports
vehicle and not a toy. The recommended rider age of 8 or older is only an estimate and
can be affected by the rider’s maturity levels, weight and skills. Any rider who cannot
comfortably fit on the mini bike should not ride the unit.
Keep small children away from this unit. Only supervised or approved riders who are
capable of handling the mini bike are allowed to sit on and ride the unit.

Important Safety Information
! DANGER Use Safe Riding Practices
• Do not jump, or attempt stunts, with your MM-E250.
• Hold onto handle bars at all times.
• Never wear earphones or operate a cell-phone or video game while riding.
• Keep all loose articles of clothing (laces, pants, sleeves, scarfs, etc.) away from
moving parts such as the drive sprocket and chain.
• Never hitch a ride from another gas-powered or electric vehicle.
• Do not ride the MM-E250 near pools, or in wet weather and do not immerse mini
bike in water. Water will damage the electric components and void your warranty.
• Always operate at a safe speed. The bike is set on the “slow” speed, but if you want to increase speed, see section “Check Speed Switch” to change to higher speed.
• Always use common sense when faced with problems. If there is any doubt about a situation or problem with your unit, do not operate further and call our customer service line – 855-863-6483.
! WARNING Improper accessories or modifications can cause a crash in which riders
can be seriously hurt or killed. Follow all instructions in this owner’s manual regarding
modifications and accessories.

Operating Controls
ON/OFF Switch
The ON/OFF switch is used to control power to the motor.
When the switch is in the “OFF” position, no power is
supplied to the motor. To ride the mini bike, flip the switch
up. This is the “ON” position. To shut off the bike, close the
latch or move the switch down to the “OFF” position.
Throttle
The throttle controls the speed of the motor. To increase
emotor speed, slowly twist the throttle grip toward you. To
reduce motor speed, twist the throttle grip away from you.
The throttle is spring loaded and will return to the closed
position (motor idle) when you remove your hand.
! WARNING Because this is an electric product, small
movements in the throttle produce an instant response in
the motor. Do not suddenly twist throttle or you risk severe
injury.
Rear Brake
The brake lever is used to apply the brake to the rear wheel
and will slow or stop the mini bike. When you pull back on
the lever, the brake cable pulls the caliper on the brake disc.
The amount of force that you use when pulling the brake
lever will determine how much braking power is applied. To
release the rear brake, release the brake lever.
Kick Stand
The kick stand is used to support the mini bike when it is
parked. To operate, use your foot to lower the stand. Always
raise the stand before riding the mini bike.

3. Charge the Battery
NOTICE The first time you charge your battery it must be fully charged. While it will be
tempting to charge for a short amount of time to be able to ride the mini bike immediately,
failure to properly charge will severely shorten the run time as the battery ages and limit
the number of recharges the battery will take. Your mini bike will be ready to ride when the
indicator light on the charger turns GREEN.
1)Make sure the on/off switch is in the off (“down”) position.
2)Locate the charger and find the battery port on the right
front side of the mini bike.
3)Remove the plastic protective cap, align the notch on
the charger and port and insert charger.
4)Plug the other end of the charger into a standard 110-volt
household outlet.

6)Unplug charger from wall, disconnect charger from port
and install port cover once charging is complete.
7)Conduct pre-ride inspection and begin having fun!
! CAUTION Remove charger from bike once GREEN light appears on charger. Extending
charging time will NOT extend operating time.
! WARNING THE UNIT WILL NOT TURN ON WHILE THE CHARGER IS PLUGGED INTO THE
CHARGING PORT! Disconnect the charger from the port before attempting to ride the bike.

Pre-Ride Check List
Before each ride, go through the following checklist to ensure your MM-E250 is safe and you
are ready. Make sure the rider fully understands the contents of the owner’s manual and is
capable of safely riding.
1) INSPECT FOR LOOSE PARTS
Check your MM-E250 for any loose plastic pieces or fasteners. If you find any, please
correct the issue and continue your inspection. If you hear rattles or other sounds you
cannot locate, do not operate the unit and contact Monster Moto customer service
at 855-833-6483 or your local Monster Moto authorized service center.
2) INSPECT FRAME, FORKS AND HANDLEBARS
Check for cracks in the metal, bent forks or frame, disconnected wires or other
abnormal issues. These can result from abusive riding and can cause unsafe riding
conditions if not corrected.
3) CHECK TIRE PRESSURE
Your tires should be properly inflated. Underinflated tires can limit the handling
ability of the bike while overinflated tires can suddenly burst or create a rough ride.
4) CHECK PROPER BRAKE FUNCTION
Squeeze your brake handle to make sure it applies pressure to the rear wheel brake
disc. If it does not properly grab the disc, please adjust brakes and try again. The brake
handle should return to original position after handle is squeezed.
5) CHECK THE CHARGER
Be sure to disconnect the charger from the battery port prior to operating the mini
bike. The unit will not run at all if the charger is still plugged into the port on the
mini bike.
6) SAFETY GEAR
Be sure to have the proper Department Of Transportation certified helmet. Goggles,
knees and elbow pads, and long pants and shirt are also recommended to ensure
maximum protection. Always wear shoes and ensure that your laces are tied and secured
way from the mini bike wheels, drive sprocket and chain. Never ride barefooted or with
sandals.

Basic Operation
After you have conducted your pre-ride checklist, you are now ready to ride. There are a few
simple things you will need to know to enjoy your electric mini bike.
Unplug Charger
NOTICE
If the charger is still plugged into the
charging port on the mini bike, IT WILL NOT RUN.
Unplug the charger from the charger port and replace
the port cap. Unplug the charger from the wall outlet
and store in a safe place until next use.
Check Speed Switch
This switch allows the parent to control whether the
unit will operate at the slow speed (Max Speed: 6.8
MPH) or fast speed (Max Speed: 13 MPH)
Charging
Port
Front Screw
First, make sure the power switch is in the “off”
position. Next, remove the plastic battery cover by
unscrewing the front and back screws. Remove the
cover and set aside.
Locate switch below the battery box and set to desired
speed ( “0” = Fast; “I” = “Slow”).

Basic Operation
Turn On the Power
Lift up the protective cover on the tank and move the
switch into the “ON” position.
Braking
This section will cover basic braking technique for your mini bike. To slow or stop the
mini bike, squeeze the brake lever firmly and smoothly. Gradually increase your braking
pressure as you feel it is needed. When you come to a stop, put your foot down to balance
the mini bike.
Generally, reduce your speed and complete your braking before you begin a turn. Avoid
braking or closing the throttle quickly while turning. Either of these actions may cause one
or both of the wheels to slip. Any wheel slip will reduce your control over the mini bike and
could cause a crash.
! WARNING Rapid acceleration, braking, or turning can cause you to lose control of the
mini bike.
Parking
When you want to stop, release the throttle lever
to stop supplying power to the motor. Increase the
brake force until the unit comes to a stop on a flat
surface. Place both feet firmly on the ground to balance the bike and extend the kick stand. Gently lean
over the bike until it rests safely on the kick stand and
dismount.
Post-Ride Inspection
After every ride, stop to inspect the bike for loose parts, wires and fasteners. If the bike
was making unusual noise or sounds during the ride, trouble shoot the problem and fix
before the mini bike is ridden again. If you have any questions, contact our customer service
team (855-833-6483) or go online (www.monstermoto.com) to look at our library of service
videos or to read our FAQs.

Basic Maintenance
Your electric-powered MM-E250 is a relatively low maintenance product because it uses
batteries and an electric motor instead of a gas-powered engine. But, there is still basic
maintenance required to keep your mini bike operating smoothly. Each maintenance item
requires basic tools and mechanical aptitude. DO NOT attempt any of these adjustments if
you do not feel comfortable.
You can visit our website to see our library of service videos which show step-by-step
instructions for these maintenance procedures. You will also be able to look at our FAQs for
answers to other questions. You can also call our trained customer service staff (855-8836483) and they will be able to answer any questions you may still have.

Basic Maintenance
2) Chain Inspection and Adjustment
The service life of your drive chain will depend on several factors including proper lubrication,
adjustment, and riding style. Poor maintenance will cause premature wear and/or damage
to the drive chain and sprockets.
Before you service your drive chain, be sure you are parked on a level surface and the ON/
OFF switch is turned “OFF”. As an additional pre-caution, disconnect the positive lead on the
batteries to ensure there will be no power to the motor.
! WARNING Failure to turn off power from the engine during this maintenance
procedure may result in accidental power being supplied to the engine. This many result in
fingers and hand being pinched or severed, or the mini bike moving and causing damage to
work area and owner.

battery, reach inside chain guard to find chain. Press
on chain mid-way between sprockets and determine
slack. Vertical movement should be between 1/4” and
3/8”.
2) If the chain needs to adjusted, locate the adjustment
bolts on either side of the rear wheel.
3) Adjust both sides equally and then retest chain
tension. Continue process until you get the correct
slack.
! CAUTION If there is not enough slack in your
chain, it will result in excessive wear on the chain,
sprockets and bearings. Be careful not to overtighten!
