INITIAL SET-UP
STEP 1. UNPACK YOUR MBxXSe. The contents is as follows:
1. MBxXSe Electric Minibike
2. Tool Pouch with tools
3. Battery Charger
4. Owners Manual
Once you have located all of these items, move on to step 2.
INITIAL SET-UP
Now plug the other end of the charger into a regular 110-volt household
outlet. There is a small indicator light on the charger that will light up
and stay on which indicates that the battery is charging.
STEP 2. ATTACH THE HANDLEBARS Your MBxXSe arrives almost
completely assembled, making it easy to start riding. The only assembly
that is required for your MBxXSe is to attach the adjustable handlebars.
All cables and controls are already hooked up to the bike, so attaching
the handlebars is easy:
1. Using the 6mm Allen wrench from your
tool kit, remove the four bolts and two
handlebar clamps from the top of the fork
and set aside.
2. Place the handlebars into position in the
lower clamps. Take care to get the
handlebars centered side to side, and set
in your desired upright position.
Be careful not to lean the handlebars too far forward or
backward as this will affect the bike’s handling and comfort of the ride.
3. Place the top clamps and bolts in position and tighten the four bolts
securely to 12 ft. lbs. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN.
STEP 3. CHARGE THE BATTERY First, be sure that the toggle switch
on the top of the “tank” is switched to the off position.
Locate the battery charger port which is under the seat on the right side
(shown at right) and flip up the small round black protective cap. Under
this cap you will see a round connector with three small contact posts.
Note that there is a small spline at the bottom of the connector
Battery Charger
Battery Charger Port
NOTE: ALLOW AT LEAST 12 HOURS FOR YOUR FIRST BATTERY CHARGE
NEVER USE A NON-MOTOVOX BATTERY CHARGER ON
YOUR MBxXSe. FIRE HAZARD, PERSONAL INJURY AND DAMAGE TO THE
VEHICLES CHARGING SYSTEM MAY OCCUR.
DO NOT LEAVE THE BATTERY CHARGER CONNECTED
TO THE BATTERIES FOR MORE THAN 48 HOURS AS SEALED LEAD ACID
BATTERIES WILL BECOME OVERCHARGED. THIS CAUSES DIMINISHED
STRENGTH AND LIFE SPAN OF THE BATTERIES.
STEP 4. CHECK OVER THE ENTIRE BIKE FOR LOOSE BOLTS
OR PARTS. Some screws and bolts may become loosened during
shipping. Look over the entire bike and pay particular attention to the
axle bolts, brake caliper bolts and steering pivots. See the section
entitled BEFORE YOU RIDE for additional suggestions.
On the round end of the battery charger cord, you will see a plug that
has three small holes and a notch which fits into the connector on the
minibike. Insert the plug into the connector firmly. There is a round
ring-nut that you can use to tighten the plug into the connector, but
this is optional.

BEFORE YOU RIDE
Before you ride you must be certain that you and your mini bike are ready to ride.
Below is the pre-ride checklist. Be sure to review all the topics every time before riding.
PRE-RIDE CHECKLIST
PRE-RIDE INSPECTION
1. Have you completely read and do you thoroughly understand this
owners manual?
2. Have you found all the safety messages on your mini bike and do
you understand them?
3. Do you understand the location of, and how all the operating
controls on your mini bike work?
4. Are you in good mental and physical condition?
5. Are you drug and alcohol free?
6. Are you wearing a DOT-approved helmet that fits properly?
7. Are you wearing eye protection?
8. Are you wearing sturdy shoes and protective clothing?
1. Check tire pressure with the tire gauge in your Motovox tool kit.
Be sure they are at a minimum of 20psi and no more than 40psi.
2. Check rims to make sure they are not bent or damaged.
3. Check the level of charge on the batteries.
4. Check the drive chain to see if it needs to be lubed or tightened.
5. Check the brake to be sure it is working properly.
6. Look over the entire bike for loose nuts and bolts or body parts.
7. Check the throttle to be sure it rotates freely and returns to the low
position on its own when released.
8. Be sure that the handlebars turn freely.
Additional suggested protective clothing.
1. Gloves to protect your hands.
2. Sturdy riding boots that support your ankles.
3. Riding pants with knee and hip pads.
4. Riding jersey with elbow pads and chest/shoulder protection.
Failure to properly maintain your mini bike can lead to a crash
in which you can be seriously injured or killed. Always perform a pre-ride
inspection on your mini bike and keep it in good condition to get the most
out of your Motovox electric mini bike.
As a reminder:
Never let your child ride without a helmet. Helmets
significantly reduce the number and severity of head injuries. An approved
DOT motorcycle helmet is the most important part of your safety gear.
Choose one that fits properly and is snug on your head. Motorcycle dealers
can help in selecting a good quality helmet with proper fit.

BEFORE RIDING
11
TROUBLE? DO NOT RETURN TO STORE contact us! BASIC OPERATION
The XS in MBxXSe stands for “eXtra Small”, but don’t be fooled by its tiny size.
The MBxXSe has a 250 Watt motor and 24 volts of electrical power. It is very
important not to underestimate the MBxXSe. Avoid getting injured.
STEP ONE: TURN THE POWER ON
The MBxXSe is equipped with a main toggle switch that is within easy access
of the rider. This switch cuts off all power to the motor. To turn the switch on,
flip up the toggle cover and push the switch forward, or to the ON position.
You will see the battery charge indicator lights on the throttle twist grip light
up, indicating how much charge is available.
NEVER TURN THE ACCELERATOR TWIST GRIP WHEN THE UNIT IS
ON AND YOU ARE NOT SITTING ON IT. THE MINIBIKE CAN LURCH FORWARD
CREATING A HAZARDOUS SITUATION.
888-488-MOTO (6686) or email info@motovox.com
BASIC OPERATION
STEP FOUR: STOPPING AND PARKING
It is always best to park the minibike on a smooth, level surface to avoid
damage from accidental tip-overs. Flip down the kickstand (located on the
bottom of the frame on the left side) to rest the bike on. Turn the switch to
the OFF position and flip down the toggle cover.
NOTE: IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO STORE YOUR MBxXSe INSIDE, OUT OF
THE WEATHER. THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM IS COVERED BUT SHOULD NOT BE
EXPECTED TO BE TOTALLY WATER TIGHT AND WATER DAMAGE CAN OCCUR
IF LEFT OUT IN WEATHER. MOTOVOX WILL VOID THE WARRANTY
IF PRODUCT HAS NOT BEEN PROPERLY STORED.
To turn the switch off, you can move it backward, to the OFF position. Or,
you will notice that by closing the toggle cover, the switch is automatically
moved to the OFF position.
STEP TWO: ACCELERATE SLOWLY
With the switch in the ON position and sitting on the minibike, put both
hands on the handle grips with both feet on the ground. Very gradually,
turn the inside portion of the right hand grip downward. You will feel the
bike start to move forward. As you gain speed, you will be able to put both
feet on the footpegs and ride.
STEP THREE: BRAKING
The MBxXSe is equipped with a rear disc brake. To use the brake, gently
squeeze the brake handle until the brake takes effect. Carefully apply the
brake while moving as jamming on the brakes too quickly can cause you to
go into a skid and lose control.

TROUBLE? DO NOT RETURN TO STORE contact us! SLOW SPEED SAFETY SWITCH
888-488-MOTO (6686) or email info@motovox.com
MAINTAINING YOUR MINI BIKE
The MBxXSe electric minibike is equipped with a special switch that reduces
the speed to accommodate younger, smaller riders. The switch is located
inside the battery case, under the battery in a hard to reach spot to limit
access by inquisitive smaller children.
Being an electric-powered vehicle, your MBxXSe is a relatively low
maintenance machine. However, it is important to properly care for the unit
to keep it operating properly and safely. Below are items that you will need
to care for on a regular basis.
NOTE: THE SLOW SPEED SAFETY SWITCH IS SET AT THE FACTORY
TO THE SLOWER SPEED. To switch from slow speed to regular speed, or
STORE INSIDE, OUT OF THE WEATHER
vice-versa, follow the steps below.
1. Open the battery cover case by removing the knob screws on the front
and back of the case and then carefully removing the right side of the
battery case.
2. Move the switch to your desired position. “O” for regular speed and “I“ for
slow speed.
3. Replace the battery cover case. The minibike will have a max speed of
10 mph in the “O” or fast position and 6.8 mph in the “I” or slow position.
10 MPH max (Fast Speed)
6.8 MPH max (Slow Speed)
IT IS CRITICALLY IMPORTANT TO ALWAYS STORE YOUR MBxXSe
INDOORS AND OUT OF THE WEATHER. THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM IS COVERED
BUT SHOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED SEALED. WATER CAN CAUSE SERIOUS
DAMAGE TO THE POWER TRAIN AND CREATE A DANGEROUS SITUATION.
WATER DAMAGE WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY.
DRIVE CHAIN TENSION
The drive chain transmits power from the motor to the rear wheel. To work
properly it must be lubricated and properly tensioned at all times.
Check the tension on the drive chain by
moving it up and down approximately
halfway between the sprockets. There should
be no more than 1/2” vertical slack in the
chain. If the chain seems too loose, it may be
in danger of coming off while riding.
To adjust the chain tension, follow the steps
outlined below:
1. Be sure that the minibike is parked on a flat,
level surface and leaning on the kickstand.
2. Using a 15mm wrench, loosen the rear
wheel axle nuts on each side.
3. After the axle nuts are loosened, use a
10mm wrench to turn the sprocket
side tensioner bolt clockwise (to tighten)
about one turn, then repeat this
process on the other side tensioner bolt.
4. Check the tension on the chain and see if

DRIVE CHAIN TENSION (CONTINUED)
it has changed enough. If not, repeat steps 3 & 4 until the proper tension
is achieved.
5. Tighten the axle nuts to 15 ft lbs.
NOTE: To loosen the chain tension, follow the steps above except turn the tensioner bolts counter-clockwise (outward) to loosen.
LUBRICATING THE DRIVE CHAIN
The drive chain on your MBxXSe must be kept lubricated often to avoid
excessive wear. To lubricate the drive chain, follow the steps below:
1. Park the bike on a level, flat surface using the kickstand.
2. Lean the bike toward the kickstand so that the rear wheel comes off
the ground an inch or two.
3. As you rotate the rear tire, wipe down the chain with a clean cloth to
remove as much grime and build up as possible.
3. Again rotating the rear tire, spray a good chain lubricant on the chain
so that the full length of the chain is lubricated. Use any spray lube, a
household oil like 3-in-1 oil, or any bicycle-specific chain lube.
Spray solvents like WD-40 are not recommended as they tend to dilute
and remove oil from the chains.
4. Using a cloth, wipe off the excess lube.
NOTE: The chain should be thoroughly lubricated but without buildup of lube,
which can collect dirt and grit which causes damage to the chain.
REPLACING THE FUSE
The MBxXSe is equipped with a 30-amp fuse to protect the system in the
event of electrical shorts. When a short or overload in the system occurs, the
fuse activates which will protect the wiring and help to avoid possible fire.
Possible situations that can result in a blown fuse can be:
1. A worn or pinched wire in the system that causes a short.
2. Moisture in the system.
3. Overloaded electrical system.
In the event of a burned-out fuse, your MBxXSe will not work when you turn
it on and the indicator lights will not light up. To check and/or replace the
fuse, follow the steps on the following page:
16
888-488-MOTO (6686) or email info@motovox.com
MAINTAINING YOUR MINI BIKE
1. Open the plastic battery case by removing
both knob screws (on the front and back
of the battery case) and pulling the right
side panel off.
2. Locate the black rubber fuse housing, in
the wiring above the battery.
3. Open the rubber flip top lid and carefully
pull out the fuse.
4. Inspect the fuse and replace if necessary.
5. Re-assemble the fuse holder and the body
case, making sure it is clean and dry inside
and that all the wiring is safely tucked
inside. Watch carefully for pinched wires.

NOTE: IF THE FUSE CONTINUES TO BURN
OUT YOU HAVE ENCOUNTERED AN
ELECTRICAL PROBLEM. CSTOP USING THE
BIKE AND CALL MOTOVOX AT
888-488 MOTO (6686) OR EMAIL US AT
INFO@MOTOVOX.COM FOR ASSISTANCE.
ADJUSTING THE BRAKE
The MBxXSe is equipped with a mechanical rear disc brake system. You
should check the brake and make sure it is working properly before each
ride. The brake should feel firm when the lever is pulled and you should not
be able to pull the brake lever all the way back to where it touches the hand
grip. If you can squeeze the brake lever all the way to the hand grip, your
brake needs adjusting. There are two options to adjust the brakes:
OPTION 1: Adjust using the barrel roller.
1. Loosen the set ring on the barrel adjuster.
2. Screw the barrel adjuster out a few turns
and then check the tension in the lever.
3. If it feels right, re-tighten the set ring.
4. If not, repeat step 2 until the brake feels
right and then tighten the set ring nut.

lever all the way in, and tighten the set ring.
2. Locate the rear brake actuator arm
where the brake cable is connected to the
rear brake caliper.
3. Using a 10mm wrench, loosen the brake
cable nut that secures the cable to the
actuator arm so that the cable can slide
Brake cable nut
freely through the bolt.
4. Slide the actuator arm forward until it stops,
then back it off about a half of an inch, making sure the cable slides
freely through the bolt.
5. Holding the actuator arm in position, carefully re-tighten the cable bolt
until it is snug.
6. Check the brakes and make sure they work properly.
The two batteries on your MBxXSe are removable and replaceable. To remove
the batteries, follow the steps outlined below.
Rear Knob Screw
1. Open the plastic battery case by removing
both knob screws (on the front and back of
the case) and pulling the right side panel off.
2. Unhook the rubber strap that holds the
batteries in place.
3. Slide the batteries partially out of the holder
one at a time, removing the terminals by
pulling them off. Remove the negative
terminal first.
NOTE: Be sure the brake is not TOO TIGHT, which will impede performance
and cause excessive wear on the brake.
CHECK THE TIRE PRESSURE
It is very important to check the tire pressure before every ride. Running on
low tire pressure can create a dangerous
situation as the bike will not handle properly
and could cause the rider to lose control.
To check the tire pressure, locate the air stems
inside the rims on each wheel and remove the
black plastic cap. Using a tire gauge, check to
make sure that there is at least 20, and no more
than 36 lbs of pressure in each tire.
18
BE CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH THE
NEGATIVE CABLE TO THE CONNECTED POSITIVE
CABLE AS IT MAY SPARK AND/OR CAUSE A FIRE.
4. Once the cables are disconnected from the
terminals, slide the batteries out .
THE MBxXSe USES LEAD ACID
BATTERIES WHICH MUST BE DISPOSED OF
PROPERLY. DROP THEM OFF AT ANY LOCATION
THAT SELLS AUTOMOTIVE BATTERIES. DO NOT
DISPOSE THEM IN YOUR HOUSEHOLD TRASH
AND NEVER BURN A LEAD ACID BATTERY AS
AN EXPLOSION COULD OCCUR.
IF A BATTERY LEAK OCCURS, AVOID
CONTACT WITH THE ACID AS IT IS CORROSIVE,
POISONOUS AND DANGEROUS. IF ACID COMES
INTO CONTACT WITH SKIN OR EYES, FLUSH WITH
COOL WATER FOR AT LEAST 15 MINUTES AND SEE
A PHYSICIAN IMMEDIATELY.
DO NOT MIX OLD AND NEW BATTERIES. DO NOT MIX ALKALINE,
STANDARD OR RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES TOGETHER, AND ONLY USE MOTOVOX
SPECIFIED BATTERIES.
