Safety Warnings
WARNING: Riding an electric four wheeler can be a hazardous
activity. Certain conditions may cause the equipment to fail without
fault of the manufacturer. Like other electric products, the Dirt
Quad 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 things
occur you can be seriously injured or die, even when using safety
equipment and other precautions. RIDE AT YOUR OWN RISK AND
USE COMMON SENSE.
This product was manufactured for performance and durability but
are not impervious to damage. Jumping or other aggressive riding can
over-stress and damage any product, including the Dirt Quad, and the
rider assumes all risks associated with high-stress activity.
This manual contains many warnings and cautions concerning the
consequences of failing to maintain, inspect or properly use your
electric four wheeler. Because any incident can result in serious injury
or even death, we do not repeat the warning of possible serious
injury or death each time such a possibility is mentioned.
Never carry passengers or allow more than one person at a time to
ride the electric four wheeler.
Be careful and know your limitations. Risk of injury increases as
the degree of riding difficulty increases. The rider assumes all risk
associated with aggressive riding activities.
Maintain a hold on the handlebars at all times.
Never use near steps or swimming pools.
Keep your fingers and other body parts away from the drive chain,
steering system, wheels and all other moving components.
APPROPRIATE RIDER USE AND PARENTAL SUPERVISION
Never use headphones or a cell phone when riding.
This manual contains important safety information. It is your
responsibility to review this information and make sure that all riders
understand all warnings, cautions, instructions and safety topics and
assure that young riders are able to safely and responsibly use this
product. Razor USA recommends that you periodically review and
reinforce the information in this manual with younger riders, and that
you inspect and maintain your children’s Dirt Quad to insure their
safety.
Never hitch a ride with another product.
Do not ride the Dirt Quad in wet or icy weather and never immerse
the electric four wheeler in water, as the electrical and drive
components could be damaged by water or create other possible
unsafe conditions.
Wet, slick, bumpy, uneven or rough surfaces may increase risks of
use. Do not ride the electric four wheeler in mud, ice, puddles or
water. Avoid excessive speeds that can be associated with downhill
rides. Never risk damaging surfaces such as carpet or flooring by use
of an electric four wheeler indoors.
The recommended rider age of 8 years is only an estimate, and can
be affected by the rider’s size, weight or skills. Any rider unable to fit
comfortably on the Dirt Quad should not attempt to ride it.
A parent’s decision to allow his or her child to ride this
product should be based on the child’s maturity, skill and
ability to follow rules.
Do not ride at night or when visibility is limited.
PROPER RIDING ATTIRE
Keep this product away from small children and remember that this
product is intended for use only by persons who are, at a minimum,
completely comfortable and competent while operating the product.
Always wear proper protective equipment such as an approved safety
helmet (with chin strap securely buckled), elbow pads and kneepads.
A helmet may be legally required by local law or regulation in your
area. A long-sleeved shirt, long pants and gloves are recommended.
Always wear athletic shoes (lace-up shoes with rubber soles), never
ride barefooted or in sandals, and keep shoelaces tied and out of the
way of the wheels, motor and drive system.
DO NOT EXCEED THE WEIGHT LIMIT OF 120 pounds. Rider weight does
not necessarily mean a person’s size is appropriate to fit or maintain
control of the Dirt Quad.
Do not touch the brakes or electric motor on your electric four
wheeler when in use and/or immediately after riding as they can
become very hot.
USING THE CHARGER
The charger supplied with the electric four wheeler should be
regularly examined for damage to the cord, plug, enclosure and other
parts, and in the event of such damage, the four wheeler must not be
charged until the charger has been repaired or replaced.
Refer to the following section on safety for additional warnings.
ACCEPTABLE RIDING PRACTICES AND CONDITIONS
Always check and obey any local laws or regulations which
may affect the locations where the Dirt Quad may be used.
Ride defensively. Watch out for potential obstacles that could catch
your wheel or force you to swerve suddenly or lose control. Be careful
to avoid pedestrians, skaters, skateboards, scooters, bikes, children
or animals who may enter your path, and respect the rights and
property of others.
Use only with the recommended charger.
Use caution when charging.
The charger is not a toy. Charger should be operated by an adult.
Do not operate charger near flammable materials.
Unplug charger and disconnect from scooter when not in use.
The Dirt Quad is meant to be used on private property and on closed
courses and not on public streets or sidewalks. Do not ride your
electric four wheeler in any areas where pedestrian or vehicle traffic
is present.
Do not activate the speed control on the hand grip unless you are on
the electric four wheeler and in a safe, outdoor environment suitable
for riding.
Always disconnect from the charger prior to wiping down and
cleaning your scooter with liquid.

FAILURE TO USE COMMON SENSE AND HEED THE ABOVE
WARNINGS INCREASES RISK OF SERIOUS INJURY. USE WITH
APPROPRIATE CAUTION AND SERIOUS ATTENTION TO SAFE
OPERATION.
Before You Begin
Remove contents from box. Remove the foam separators that protect the components from damage during
shipping. Inspect the contents of the box for scratches in the paint, dents or kinked cables that may have
occurred during shipping. Because the Dirt Quad is 95 percent assembled and packed at the factory, there
should not be any problems, even if the box has a few scars or dents.
MAKE SURE POWER SWITCH IS TURNED “OFF” BEFORE CONDUCTING ANY
MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES.
Estimated Assembly and Set-Up Time
Razor recommends assembly by an adult.
Allow up to 20 minutes for assembly, not including initial charge time.
Allow up to 12 hours for initial charge (see page 4 for charging information).

Assembly and Set-Up
q Attaching the Handlebars
Tools required: 6mm Allen wrench
WARNING:
Failing to properly adjust and
tighten the bolts that affix the
handlebars can cause you to
lose control and crash.
1 Using the 6mm Allen
wrench, remove bolts from
handlebar clamp.
3 Insert bolts and tighten
2 Place handlebars in handlebar clamp in upright, vertical
position.
securely. When properly
tightened, the handlebars
should not move forward or
back.
Note: Handlebar clamps are
located in the plastic bag
with owner’s manual and
charger.
Note: The gap between the
upper clamp and lower clamp
should be equal on both sides of
handlebar.
q Inflating the Tires
Tires are inflated when shipped, but they invariably lose some pressure between the point of
manufacturing and your purchase. Inflate the tires to the correct PSI before first time use.
Using a bicycle tire pump equipped for a Schrader valve, inflate the tires to the PSI indicated on the sidewall of the tire.
Note: The pressurized air
supplies found at gasoline
stations are designed to inflate
high-volume automobile tires.
If you decide to use such an
air supply to inflate your tires,
first make sure the pressure
gauge is working, then use very
short bursts to inflate to the
correct PSI. If you inadvertently
over-inflate the tire, release the
excess pressure immediately.
q Testing the Brake
To use the brake, squeeze the lever to increase the pressure on the brake. The brake lever is fitted
with a cable adjuster to compensate for cable stretch and/or to fine-tune the lever movement to brake
engagement. If brake is not engaging properly, follow instructions for adjusting the brakes outlined below.

BEFORE RIDING
q Charging the Battery
Your electric four wheeler may not have a fully charged battery; therefore it is a good idea to charge the
battery prior to use.
•Initial charge time: 12 hours
•Recharge time: up to 12 hours,
depending on level of depletion.
•Fully charge battery before storing.
•When the scooter is not in regular use,
recharge the battery at least once a
month until normal use is resumed.
•Run time: Up to 40 minutes of continuous ride time.
Run time may vary depending on riding conditions,
climate and/or proper maintenance.
•Average battery life: 250 charge/discharge cycles
•To ensure long battery life, do not store the battery
in temperatures above 75° or below -10° F.
Charger
WARNING:
Rechargeable batteries are
only to be charged under adult
supervision. Always disconnect
your electric four wheeler from
the charger before cleaning
with liquid.
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 to indicate the
charge status. Refer to the
illustration on the charger unit
for the actual “charging” and
“charged” status indications for
your model charger.
Note: Make sure power is
turned OFF when unit is not in
use. If the power switch is left
on for an extended period of
time, the battery may reach a
stage at which it will no longer
hold a charge.
2 Turn power OFF before
charging. Plug the charger into
the charger port to charge unit.
1 Plug the charger into a wall
outlet. If the lights on charger
do not light up, check the power
to the outlet. If necessary, try a
different outlet.
Chargers have built-in overcharge protection to prevent
battery from being overcharged.
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: Failure
to recharge the battery at least
once a month may result in a
battery that will no longer hold
a charge.

WARNING:
The brake is capable of causing
the electric four wheeler
to skid the tire throwing an
unsuspecting rider. Practice
in an open area free from
obstacles until you are familiar
with the brake function. Avoid
skidding to a stop as this can
cause you to lose control or
damage the rear tire(s).

through the frame, locate the
fuse box attached to the top of
the battery.
3 Open the fuse cover to
expose the fuse.
Amperage
number
4 Remove the fuse and replace
with a new one of equal
amperage.
Note: Amperage rating is

Repair and Maintenance
7 Reset chain tensioner.
8 Position bottom half of the
chain guard to align mounting
holes and screw to frame.
10 On the inside of the wheel
slide bolt through wheel and
axle and secure with nut.
11 On the outside of the
wheel replace washers and
secure with bolt.
9 Position top half of the chain
guard to align mounting holes
and screw to frame.
q Chain and Sprocket
The chain will typically have a “loose spot” and “tight spot” corresponding with a particular sprocket
rotational position. This is normal and common to all chain-driven products due to run-out tolerances of the
freewheel and sprocket. Proper chain alignment must be maintained. If the chain is noisy or rough running,
check the lubrication, tension and alignment of the sprockets, in that order. The chain tensioner must be
aligned and free from binding and the tensioner spring(s) must be operating correctly.
WARNING:
To avoid a pinch or injury, keep
fingers away from moving
sprockets and chain.
