AIR FILTER
The air filter, if clogged, will reduce the engine performance. Clean the Air
Filter every 4-6 hours of riding. Check and clean the filter element in warm,
soapy water as required. Dry completely before installing. If the element is
broken or shrunk, replace with a new one.
FUEL FILTER
When the engine runs short of fuel supply, check the fuel cap and the fuel filter
for blockage.
SPARK PLUG
Starting failure and misfiring are often caused by a fouled spark plug. Clean
the spark plug and check that the plug gap is in the correct range. For a
replacement plug, use the correct type.
REPLACEMENT PLUG IS A NGK CMR7A.
IMPORTANT CORRECT PLUG GAP IS .024 - .026”
Note that using any spark plug other than those designated may result in engine
failing to operate properly or in the engine becoming overheated and damaged.
To install the spark plug, first turn the plug until it is finger tight, then tighten it a quarter
turn more with a socket wrench.
SPARK PLUG TIGHTENING TORQUE: 87-104 in-lbs
THINGS TO REMEMBER
• Keep air-intake opening clear of debris and do not touch the muffler or cylinder.
These parts get extremely hot from operation, and remain hot for a short time after the
equipment is turned off.
do so. If your form is not turned into the manufacturer, YOU DO NOT HAVE A WARRANTY.
MAINTENANCE / PARTS
• All frame and engine parts are available through your authorized Go-Ped® reseller or the GoPed® website at www.goped.com.
• Use only manufacturer’s original equipment, replacement parts when servicing this unit. These
parts are available from your authorized dealer. The use of non-standard parts, or other
accessories or attachments not designed for this unit, could result in serious injury to the user or
damage to the unit. Adding any non-standard parts or accessories will void manufacturer’s
warranty
WARNING
•
Periodically inspect the muffler for loose fasteners, any damage or
corrosion. If any sign of exhaust leakage is found, stop using the machine and
have it repaired immediately.
•
Note that failing to do so may result in the engine catching on fire.
STARTING INSTRUCTIONS
BEFORE YOU RIDE – GSR40 Go-Ped® should be warmed up.
Note: Your GSR40 is equipped with a centrifugal clutch. Giving it too much gas during
warm up will cause it to propel forward.
Make sure the rear tire is off the ground to prevent this from occuring

Pump primer bulb until fuel flows steadily through clear, overflow tube.
Move choke lever to the closed position. (Upward: Closed Choke)
Set throttle to start position (half).
Pull starter, until engine starts.
Move choke lever to the open position as soon at the engine starts.
Allow engine to warm up before using.
After warming up the engine (30 seconds – 1 minute), place hands on the hand grips
(no throttle). Place one foot on Go-Ped Standing Platform. With the other foot, briskly
push the Go-Ped® forward.

To stop: use the Red Button to kill the engine
Chain Care and Maintenance
Proper chain care and maintenance is essential to longevity and wear of the drive
components on your GSR40.
• Make sure that the sprockets are perfectly aligned to each other. You can check this
visually by lining up the rear sprocket with the front and seeing that the chain is
straight.
• The four screws that hold the motor in place can be loosened to allow you to realign
the sprockets if necessary.
• The chain tensioner is a critical element in chain maintenance. As your ride your
GSR40 the chain will stretch over time and without the tensioner you can throw a chain
and cause permanent damage to the drive components and or cause a loss in control
of your GSR40. As the chain wears, you will need to loosen the quick release lever so
you can gently pull up on the tensioner and take up any chain slack (pulling up more
than necessary will cause your drive components to wear prematurely and add
performance reducing drive system friction).
• The chain should be lubricated before each ride and your GSR40 chain tensioner
has a built-in pocket designed to hold one opened, small tank-size Go-Mix II packet
that will direct a light drip effect directly on the chain for your convenience and to
minimize the chance to prematurely wear out your chain. Go-Mix II packets are
available from your local dealer.
IMPORTANT
Never lubricate your chain while engine is running
• Your chain should be clean. A safe cleaning solvent can be used but the chain must
be oiled once it is dry.
• To reduce dirt and grime build-up and overspray on rear brake components, never
over lubricate the chain.
•Sprockets should be periodically checked for damage and wear. If you notice that
there is any damage to the sprockets or a tooth missing it should be replaced
immediately.
FUELING & PRE-OPERATIONAL
Gasoline is extremely flammable, and its vapors can explode if ignited. Always stop the
engine and allow to cool before filling fuel tank. Do not smoke while filling fuel tank.
Keep sparks and open flames away from the area.
• Add fuel in a clean, well-ventilated area. Avoid spilling the fuel when mixing the oil.
Wipe up spilled fuel immediately. If fuel has been spilled, allow to dry completely
before starting the engine.
• Move the unit at least 10 feet (3m) from the fueling point before starting the engine.
Pressure can build up in the fuel tank. Loosen the cap on the fuel tank slowly to relieve
any pressure in the tank.
• Store gasoline and fuel only in containers designed and approved for the storage of
such materials.
OIL & FUEL INFORMATION
Note: For proper engine operation and maximum reliability, pay strict attention to the
oil and fuel-mixing instructions. Use Gasoline as indicated in the specifications. Use
a high quality 50:1 fuel/oil ratio (2-cycle). Improperly mixed fuel can severely
damage the engine.
Use the following procedure to ensure proper mixing:
• Put a small amount of fresh gasoline (87 Octane or greater) into a clean (1) U.S.
gallon (3.875-liter) fuel can.
• Add 2.65 ounces of high quality 2-cycle oil.
• Fill the remainder of the fuel can with gasoline (1 gallon).
• Screw the cap of the fuel can on tight, and SHAKE THE CAN VIGOROUSLY FOR 30
SECONDS.
* For convienent oil/fuel mixing, add two tank size Go-Mix II Packets to each fill up of
your GSR40 Gas Tank
BE SURE TO READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO
START OR OPERATE THIS UNIT. Using old or improper oil or fuel, or improperly
mixing the oil and fuel can cause engine damage. This type of damage will void
engine warranty.
FOLDING FEATURE
BEFORE YOU RIDE - Be certain the sliding handle lock tube is in its full down position,
locking the handlebar upright. The handle latch hooks to the motor casing to hold the
handle in the folded position for carrying or for storage.
CONTROLS
BEFORE YOU RIDE - Familiarize yourself with how your Go-Ped® works.
• The red button operates the engine shut off.
• The left-hand lever operates the front-wheel disc brake.
• The right plastic lever operates throttle control.
• The right aluminum lever operates rear-wheel disc brake.
• The kick-stand is used to stand your Go-Ped® in an upright and stopped position.
• The handle bar supports the rider and steers the Go-Ped® just like a bicycle. Always
use both hands on the handle bar when riding.
GSR GO-PED® PNEUMATIC TIRE INFORMATION
• Never use tires or tubes not recommended by the manufacturer or exceed
maximum P.S.I. limits as stated on the side of tires.
TIRE REPLACEMENT
GSR Go-Ped® :
• Replace front or rear tires when tread is worn within 1/16" tread depth, or if obvious
tire damage has occurred.
SAFETY WARNING
Tire-wear, punctures or ruptures can cause immediate loss of control, which may
effect operator and precipitate serious bodily injury.
TIPS
BEFORE YOU RIDE - Thoroughly inspect the unit for loose or damaged parts before
each use. Do not use until adjustments or repairs are made. New engine break-in
period is a few hours. Avoid full-throttle operation during this time. Position your feet in
any location that is comfortable to you. Most prefer a parallel stance with the left leg
slightly behind the right and bearing most of the weight while bending your knees.
When accelerating or climbing hills you will need to lean forward a little to keep the
front wheel on the ground. Under hard braking conditions you will need to lean back to
keep the rear-wheel on the ground.
SCOOTING CAN BE an environmentally safe, useful, and fun way of reducing traffic
congestion.
MODIFICATIONS to the exhaust or intake will void the manufacturer’s warranty of your
Go-Ped® and change the noise level which can and will disturb others.
DO NOT make changes or modifications to your scooter which can make your scooter
act in an unsafe manner.
SAFETY WARNING
Operate this unit only in a well-ventilated area (i.e. outdoors). Carbon monoxide
exhaust fumes can be lethal in a confined area.
