INTRODUCTION, SAFETY, AND
WARNINGS
ABOUT THIS MANUAL: This manual was written to help you get the most
performance, comfort, enjoyment and safety when riding your new off-road electric
scooter. It is important for you to understand your new off-road electric scooter. By
reading this manual before you or your child go out on your first ride, you will know
how to get the most from your new off-road electric scooter. It is also important that
your or your child’s first ride on your new off-road electric scooter be in a controlled
environment, away from cars, obstacles, and other riders.
GENERAL WARNING:
Riding an off-road electric scooter can be a dangerous activity, even under the best
of circumstances. Proper maintenance of your new off-road electric scooter is your
responsibility and helps reduce the risk of injury. Certain conditions may cause
components to fail without fault of the manufacturer. The off-road electric scooter
can and is intended to move and it is therefore possible to lose control, fall off and/
or get into dangerous situations that no amount of care, instruction or expertise can
eliminate. If such a thing does occur, you can become seriously injured or die, even
when using safety equipment and other safety precautions.
RIDE AT YOUR OWN RISK AND ALWAYS USE COMMON SENSE.
This manual contains many warnings and cautions concerning the consequences of
failing to inspect, maintain or properly use your off-road electric scooter. Because
any fall can result in serious injury or even death, we do not repeat the warning of
possible serious injury or death each and every time the risk of falling is mentioned
in this manual.
ALWAYS USE PROPER SAFETY EQUIPMENT AND RIDING ATTIRE
Always use appropriate safety equipment, such as a helmet, elbow pads, knee
pads, gloves, and wrist guards. A helmet is not only a good idea but may be legally
required in your community. To protect yourself or your child, the helmet must meet
CPSC, 16 CFR 1203, requirements and be worn correctly:
3
Always wear appropriate clothing and shoes, including long sleeved shirts and
long pants and lace-up or similar shoes with rubber soles. Never ride barefoot or
in sandals and make sure that shoelaces or other fasteners are tied and kept away
from the wheels and drive system of the off-road electric scooter.
RIDER USE AND REQUIRED PARENTAL SUPERVISION
RIDERS MUST NOT EXCEED THE WEIGHT LIMIT OF 220 lb (100 kg).
The age grade for the off-road electric scooter is for ages 14 and older. Just because
someone is within the age and weight limitations specified for the off-road electric
scooter, does not mean that his/her size is appropriate to fit or maintain control of
the off-road electric scooter or that he/she is capable of safely operating the off-road
electric scooter. You are the best judge of whether you or your child can safely operate the off-road electric scooter; this includes determining whether your child is at
the appropriate developmental stage for safe use of the off-road electric scooter. Any
rider that is unable to fit comfortably on the off-road electric scooter should never
attempt to ride it. A parent’s decision to allow their child to use the off-road electric
scooter should be based on the child’s maturity, skill and their ability to follow rules.
Keep this off-road electric scooter away from small children and remember that it
is intended for use only by persons who are, at a minimum, able to comfortably and
safely operate the off-road electric scooter.
Children operating the off-road electric scooter should be supervised by an adult at
all times. Parents should ensure that children only use the off-road electric scooter
safely and within their age and physical limits.
This manual contains very important safety information. It is your responsibility to
completely review this information and make sure that all riders understand all of
the warnings, cautions, instructions and safety topics addressed in this manual and
to assure that all riders are able to safely and responsibly use the off-road electric
scooter. You should periodically review and reinforce all information in this manual
with all riders, especially children. You should also regularly inspect and maintain
your off-road electric scooter to insure the safety of all riders. Make sure that your
new off-road electric scooter is properly fitted to any child riding it; that it is in good
repair and safe operating condition; that you and your child have gone over the use,
operation and safety information in this manual; that you and your child have learned
and understand what to do and what not to do with your new off-road electric
scooter, including observing all applicable laws, rules and common sense.
Children should be made aware of all possible riding hazards and correct riding
behavior before they ride the off-road electric scooter! Please explain the following to
them as often as necessary.

Scooter Body and Front Fork Assembly
Tools Required: 13mm wrench & 17mm wrench (not included)
1 Insert the stem (assembled with the front
fork, front wheel and the steerer tube already)
into the scooter body as shown.
Note: Make sure the cable wires are smooth
and out of the way before inserting (to avoid
kinks or breakage)
2 Align the holes A & B, and insert
a bolt (M10x120m) into each and
securely tighten the bolts with
13mm and 17mm wrench from the
left and right sides at the same
time.
9
Handlebar Assembly
Tools Required: 5mm Allen Key (included).
Attach the handlebar onto the handlebar steerer tube as shown, and tighten the handlebar in the handlebar clamp (tighten the four bolts with the included 5mm Allen Key).
Note: Make sure that cable wires are smooth and out of the way before attaching
the handlebar.
Note: The thread area on the handlebar must be covered by the handlebar clamp.
Note: Pay attention when positioning the handlebar, that it won’t interfere with the
key on the key switch.
Note: Do not completely tighten each bolt, one at a time. Rather, alternate tightening
each bolt following the sequence shown in the diagram until they are all completely
tightened, to assure that they are evenly tightened (see the diagram illustrated here).
WARNING Make sure that the handlebar is sufficiently tight in the clamp
such that it does not move forward or backward in the clamp when pushed and pulled.
Inflating the Tire
The front and rear tires are inflated during production, but invariably they may
lose some pressure between the point of
manufacturing and your purchase. Using
a bicycle style tire pump for a Schraeder
valve, inflate both front and rear tires to the
PSI indicated on the sidewall of the tires.
CAUTION Use of pressurized air supplies such as those found at service
stations is not recommended and if not used properly, may cause a tire to blow out.
If you do use a service station pump, make sure the pressure gauge is working and
then use very short bursts of air to inflate the tire to the correct PSI, taking care to
avoid sudden over inflation. If you exceed the recommended PSI, release the excess
pressure immediately.
10
Charging the Battery
Your off-road electric scooter may not have a fully charged battery. Therefore it is a
good idea to charge the battery prior to use.
Initial charge time: 18 hours, and never charge the battery longer than 30 hours.
Recharge time: up to 12 hours, and never charge the battery longer than 30 hours.
When the off-road electric scooter is not in regular use, recharge the battery at least
once a month until normal use is resumed.
Run time: Up to 45 minutes of continuous ride time.
Average battery life: 250 charge/discharge
cycles.
1. Turn power OFF before charging. Plug the
charger into the charger port on the offroad electric scooter.
Note: Be sure to properly align the groove
on the charger input plug with the corresponding socket on the case; otherwise,
no charging action will occur.
2. Plug the charger into a wall power outlet. The light on
the charger housing should illuminate. A red LED light
indicates the battery is charging and a green LED
indicates the battery is fully charged. (If the lights on
the charger do not light up, check the power to the
outlets. If necessary, try a different electrical outlet.)
WARNING Rechargeable batteries are only to
be charged under adult supervision. Always disconnect
your off-road electric scooter from the charger before cleaning with liquid.
Note:
• Turn off key power switch when not in use.
• Batteries may become damaged and could no longer accept a charge,
if switch is left in the ON position when not in use.
• Fully charge the battery before storage.
Note: Failure to recharge the battery at least once a month may result in a battery that
will no longer accept a charge.
Note: If your charger does not look like the one illustrated, your unit has been supplied with an alternative charger. The specifications and charging procedure would not
change. The charger has a small window with one LED or two LEDs to indicate the
11
charge status. Refer to the illustration on the charger unit for the actual “charging”
and “charged” status indications for your model charger. Chargers have built-in
overcharge protection to prevent the battery from being over-charged. Charger will
get warm during use. This is normal for some chargers and is no cause for concern.
If your charger does not get warm during use, it does not mean that it is not working
properly.
WARNING Charging produces explosive gases. Charge battery in a well
ventilated area, away from sparks, flames, smoking and combustibles.
BEFORE YOU RIDE
Before you ride always check the following:
Safety Gear: Always wear proper protective gear such as:
• Approved safety helmet. (Helmet may be legally required by local law or
regulation in your area.)
• Elbow pads, knees pads and wrist guards
• Long sleeved shirt, long pants
• Gloves
• Lace up shoes with rubber soles
Brake: Check the brake for proper function. When lever is squeezed it should slow/
stop the rear wheel without excessive effort. When you apply the brake with the
throttle on, the brake cut off switch should stop the motor. Make sure that the brake
is not rubbing when the lever is not being squeezed. Do not ride the off-road electric
scooter if the brake is not functioning properly.
Throttle: Once the key switch is placed in the “ON” position, the off-road electric
scooter will move once the throttle is twisted. Make sure that before the throttle is
twisted you are in an open and safe area to ride, you are balanced on the off-road
electric scooter and have both hands on the handlebar controls.
WARNING Your off-road electric scooter comes with a variable speed
throttle. Always remember to twist it slowly or gradually; DO NOT quickly twist the
throttle to its end until you feel comfortable on the off-road electric scooter and with
your speed. If you twist the throttle quickly at first, you will accelerate rapidly and
may get thrown from the off-road electric scooter and risk serious injury or death
(doing it will also decrease your battery life).
Tires: Inspect the wheels/tires for excess wear and replace if necessary. Regularly
check the front tire pressure and re-inflate as necessary.
Frame, Fork and Components: Always carefully inspect your off-road electric
scooter before you ride. Check for cracks, broken, worn or loose components which
should be repaired or replaced before your ride.
12
Battery: Always make sure the power switch is in the “off” position whenever the
off-road electric scooter is not in use. Never store the product in outdoor conditions,
never store it in the rain, and never store the product in freezing or below freezing
temperatures. These low temperatures will permanently damage the battery.
WARNING Always ensure that you are in a safe open area to ride before
you engage the throttle. Never twist the throttle without being on the off-road electric
scooter in a balanced, ready to ride position with both hands on the handlebar controls. Failure to follow these instructions may result in risk of serious injury or even
death, and it may also damage your off-road electric scooter and void your warranty.
WARNING An off-road electric scooter that does not work properly
can cause you to lose control and fall. Inspect the entire off-road electric scooter
thoroughly before every ride, and do not ride the off-road electric scooter until any
problem has been corrected.

trip and shut off power to the motor.
Correct the riding condition that

seconds, and then push the reset

Check all wires around the motors
and all connectors to Make sure they

WARRANTY
Limited Warranty
Subject to the following limitations, all off-road electric scooters manufactured for
Dynacraft are warranted to the original purchaser to be free of defects in materials
and workmanship for a period of 90 days from the date of purchase.
No other express or implied warranty is given. Dynacraft will replace without charge
those component parts that are determined by Dynacraft to be defective in materials or manufacture under normal use and service during the warranty period. The
original purchaser will be responsible for any and all labor charges connected with
the repair or replacement of component parts.
This Limited Warranty does not apply to normal wear and tear, such as to wheels/
tires, cables, or other components that wear with use, nor to claimed defects, malfunctions, or failures that result from abuse, neglect, improper assembly, improper
maintenance, lack of maintenance, improper storage, alteration, modification, collision, crash, or misuse of the Dynacraft off-road electric scooter.
Dynacraft does not encourage stunting, trick riding, ramp riding, jumping, aggressive riding, riding on severe terrain, riding in severe climates, riding with heavy loads,
commercial activities, or other similar activities; such use is inherently dangerous,
can cause serious injury to the rider, and if done, it is with the rider and/or the rider’s
parent’s express and implied assumption of the risk of such use, and Dynacraft
shall not have any responsibility for any resulting break down of the off-road electric
scooter or its components, or for any rider injuries that occur during such use.
Riding an off-road electric scooter can be inherently dangerous such that bodily
injury or even death can occur, especially if the rider and/or the rider’s parent does
not perform the safety and maintenance checks recommended in this manual, if
the rider does not wear a helmet, if the rider does not follow all applicable laws and
rules, if the rider goes into traffic, rides double, or engages in aggressive, stunt or
extreme terrain riding.
Parents that allow their children to ride taking such actions will assume their own
risk and the risk of injury to their children, and Dynacraft will not be responsible.
THE PURCHASE OF THIS OFF-ROAD ELECTRIC SCOOTER WILL CONFIRM THE
BUYER’S AGREEMENT THAT DYNACRAFT’S LIABILITY UNDER THIS WARRANTY
SHALL BE NO GREATER THAN THE AMOUNT OF THE ORIGINAL PURCHASE PRICE
AND IN NO EVENT SHALL DYNACRAFT BE LIABLE FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES.
This Limited Warranty will be void if the product is ever used in a manner other than
for recreation or transportation, modified in any way, or used as a rental.
Dynacraft does not offer an extended warranty; if you have purchased an extended
warranty, it must be honored by the store from which you purchased the off-road
electric scooter or the appropriate party. For your records, keep your original sales
receipt with this manual.
