tools:
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
Allen Wrenches:
3 / 4 / 5 / 6mm.
Wrenches:
10 / 13 / 16 mm Open and ring combination.

CARBURETOR ADJUSTMENT
WARNING!
Never start the engine without the complete clutch cover assembled!
Otherwise the clutch can come loose and cause personal injuries.
In the Carburetor, fuel is mixed with air. When the engine is test run at
the factory, the Carburetor is basically adjusted. A further adjustment
may be required from time to time, depending on climate and altitude.
The Carburetor has only one possible adjustment:
T= idle speed adjustment screw
Idle Speed Adjustment (Fig. 9)
When the idle speed is adjusted properly, the engine will run smoothly,
without pressing the THROTTLE LEVER.
If adjustment is required:
1. Start the engine.
2. Using a long, Philips head screwdriver
gently close (clockwise) the T-screw
until the MOBY starts to move forward.
3. Then open (counter-clockwise) the
screw until the MOBY stops.
4. You have reached the correct idle speed
when the engine runs smoothly below
the RPM when the MOBY starts to
move.
Note: Standard idle RPM is about 25003000 RPM.
Page 12 of 18
WARNING!
When the engine is idling, under no circumstances should your MOBY
be moving.
If the MOBY continues to move after idle speed adjustment, contact
Bladez or your local Bladez service center.
Cleaning the Air Filter
It is a good idea to occasionally clean the air filter to insure optimum
performance.
To clean the air filter:
1. Using a Philips head screwdriver,
remove the carburetor cover by turning
the cover screw counter clockwise. (Fig.
10)
2. Remove and clean the air filter (the
spongy material on top of the air intake),
with a damp rag. (Fig. 11)
3. Put the air filter back into its original
position and replace the cover.
BRAKING SYSTEM
The MOBY uses both a front wheel disc/calliper system activated by a hand lever
(on the left side of the handlebar) and a rear friction foot brake. The front brake is
activated by squeezing the BRAKE LEVER with your left hand. Make sure to release
the THROTTLE LEVER when engaging the brakes.
Practice braking on a smooth, dry surface to get used to the feel of the braking
system. Braking distance is affected by wet conditions and loose and uneven riding
surfaces.
Adjusting the Brakes
The Brakes on the MOBY should come fully adjusted from the factory.
However, it may be necessary to adjust the brake from time to time.
Page 13 of 18
To adjust the brakes:
1. With one hand, depress the brake
calliper using your thumb and forefinger
(Fig. 12).
2. With the other hand, adjust the tension
screw on the brake line.
a. Turn the tension screw clockwise
to loosen the brake.
b. Turn the tension screw counterclockwise to tighten the brake.
Squeaky Brakes
The brakes may squeak before they are broken in. This is normal and will not
affect the function or performance of the brakes. With continued use, the
squeak should go away.
TIRES AND WHEELS
The Bladez MOBY uses an identical rim and tires assembly on the front and rear
wheels, which means that the tires can be rotated. The wheels are actually two
wheel halves (split rim) bolted together to make it easier to remove and replace the
tire and tube.
The rear wheel is fitted with a special spacer to accommodate the belt pulleys, while
the front wheel has a bracket for the disc brake.
Tire wear will differ based on rider weight, riding conditions and care. Replacement
tires can be obtained at your local Bladez dealer, through motorcycle shops, or from
the Bladez website at www.ebladez.com.
Tire Pressure
The tire must be inflated to a maximum of 50 P.S.I.. It is also recommended to
use a tube additive like Slime purchasable from any motorcycle shop, to avoid
inconvenient punctures.
Empty all air from the tire, prior to loosing the bolt to split the rim.
ADJUSTING THE HEAD UNIT
The head unit will should come adjusted from the factory. However, riding on rough
terrain and general use may cause the head unit to become loose over time. It may
be necessary to adjust the head unit from time to time.
Page 14 of 18
To adjust the head unit:
1. Rotate the handle bar as far right as it
will go to expose the HEAD UNIT (Fig.
13).
2. Using a large adjustable wrench, gently
turn the BEARING LOCK clockwise to
tighten. * DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN OR
IT WILL DAMAGE THE BEARINGS
ADJUSTING THE BELTS
The belts will come adjusted from the factory. However, it may be necessary to
adjust the pulleys from time to time. The belts must be well aligned onto the pulleys
otherwise they may start to rub and chafe, which will result in shortened belt life.
How tight should the belt be?
‰ If the belt is skipping or jumping on the pulley teeth, this is to loose and
may be harmful.
‰ If the belt is making a humming sound when the wheel it turning, this is to
tight and may cause the belt to snap.
‰ The correct tension is achieved by adjusting the belt from its loose position
to when it becomes lightly tense.
To tighten the belts:
1. Open the belt cover.
2. Rotate the rear wheel to assess the
alignment of the belts.
Adjust the small belt first.
3. Loosen the tensioned lock nut under the
clutch first.
4. Adjust the outer and inner adjuster
screws acutely together, by making
minor adjustments one at a time. (Fig.
14). After each adjustment rotate the
rear wheel to insure that the belt is
aligned.
Then adjust the large belt.
5. Slightly loosen the two Axle bolts on
both sides of the rear wheel. (Fig. 15).
Then slowly adjust the two adjusting
screws on each side of the rear tire (Fig.
16) until belt reached the proper tension.
Page 15 of 18
Occasionally rotate the rear wheel to
make sure belt is aligned.
6. Finally lock and tighten the rear axle
bolts prior to riding.
