ATTENTION: An incorrect headset adjusting may cause one to lose
control of the bike and fall down. Ensure that the headset and stem to be
correctly fitted before each use.
10.4 BRAKES
Ensure the correct work of the brakes. DPIE3 is only provided with a sole disc brake per
cable to the front wheel which allows to stop the vehicle without problems. The brakes
shall work and allow the vehicle stop at a safety and proper distance. On using the brake
lever, the engine is also disconnected. Check the brake shoes not to show any excessive
wear.
The DPIE 3 model is fitted with a mechanical disc brake system.
The brake system of this vehicle allows getting down the speed, a very safety critic
function. The following item explain how to inspect, adjust and even lubricate the DPIE 3
brakes.
CAUTION: As any braking system, an incorrect adjustment, poor
maintenance, or a bad use of the brakes may cause one to lose control of the
vehicle with all the consequences that this may imply. Never use the bike if the
braking system is not working correctly or if you suspect any type of problem
either with the brakes or their cables. If the brakes are not working correctly, one
may lose control and fall down. If the DPIE 3 is not working properly, fix it or
take it to an authorized dealer.
Adjusting the brake system is difficult if one does not have the necessary know-how,
experience and the necessary tools. We strongly recommend that any adjustment to the
brakes be carried out by an authorized dealer.
17
Not all brakes are compatible with all types of levers. For any brake, be sure to use only
compatible levers such as those that come originally with the DPIE 3.
MECHANIC DISC BRAKE
The mechanic disc brake press the brake shoes/ pads on the disc placed on the front
hub instead of pressing the pads on the rim. The disc is fitted to the axle by bolts to the
left side. The brake works by a cable coming from the lever to the pincers. The brake
system is formed by:
Brake lever
Brake cable & casing
Brake pincers
Brake shoes / pads.
Disc
ATTENTION: The disc brake shoes can be very hot after using them,
please take care not to touch the disc on checking them.
INSPECTION
Squeeze the brake lever 5 times before riding. The levers must not touch the handlebar.
Ensure that there is no oil, grease or any other matter on the disc. The disc is part of the
braking system and should always be kept clean. Remove the brake shoes from the
pincers for in-depth cleaning. Do not use any clean products, degreasing liquids or
solvents to clean the disc. Use isopropyl alcohol.
Check once a month to ensure that the disc brakes are not worn down. If the brake pads
are less than 1mm thick, they will have to be changed. Check also to ensure that the
pads are correctly positioned: a distance between 0.25 and o.75 mm from the disc when
not using the brakes.. Turn the wheel while not pressing the brake lever. The pads
should touch the discs as little as possible..
See section: Torque Value
Check your brake cables once a month to ensure that they are not twisted or rusted, that
there are no broken threads or ends, and check their casings for cuts or wear. Substitute
any defective piece.

11. BATTERY AND CHARGE
The battery is one of the most important part of the DPIE 3. A correct use of the battery is
to last its life.
The battery can provide 300 chargers approximately.
Very important: Do not allow children to charge the battery. The electric
charge (220 v), may cause serious personal injury or even death. Do not
charge the battery barefoot, on a damp or wet floor or in any conditions which
might threaten your personal safety. The wall sock must meet the pertinent
safety norms.
GOOD USE OF THE BATTERY
The first charge of the battery is extremely important and can determine the battery’s
useful life. Charge the battery complete (4/6 hours approx.). The charger lights are to
indicate the state of the charge.
19
Before using the DPIE3, the battery shall be charged before to be discharged on the
whole, and will last the battery. The battery never should be run out on the whole. It does
not matter the km run. Charge always the battery after having used the vehicle. In case
of not using the vehicle, remember that the battery shall be charged at three or four
weeks.
Very important: Always use the charger corresponding to your model.
Any manipulation of the battery by the client will invalidate the warranty and free the
manufacture of any possible liability.
Charge the battery in a well-ventilated area.
The batteries have discharge, It is normal the battery can have run out after a period of
time without using it.

The environmental temperature can affect the good work of the battery. In general, the
battery is to work properly in high temperatures. When the temperature drops below 0º
C, however, its performance can be reduced to a third. For this reason, it is probable
that the charge can last less time in winter. At 20º C, the battery shall work normally.
When the temperature exceeds 35º-40ºC ( or if the battery has been exposed to the sun
for a long time ), the electrical components may not work normally.
Actions which may effect or reduce the battery performance.
•
•
•
•
Constantly starting and stopping the DPIE 3 as it can be driving in cities
Constantly braking and turning the bike on and off
Riding upwind or uphill and carrying extra weight
Low pressure tire and braked wheels
These actions can influence the battery’s performance, reducing its life and the
distance which can travel to be shorter. We recommend to take note of the above
indicated points to extend as much as possible the travelling distance that the DPIE 3
can travel .
11.1 BATTERY RECHARGING
Ensure the battery to be charged completely before using the vehicle for the first time.
The battery can be to the 50% charged when one may receive the vehicle.

CONTROLLER
DPIE 3 controller is the nerve centre of the system. It consists of a small box placed
under the battery compartment and where all the components are connected.
The controller receives all the necessary information from the brakes, engine, battery,
etc.
The controller is responsible of the engine to work correctly and the DPIE 3 safety as
well.
The controller checking/handling requires specific tools and know-how. Only an
authorized dealer or the Monty plant should manipulate it.
ENGINE
DPIE 3 is provided with a top-quality, resistant engine. The engine is part of the front
wheel, designed to provide a maximum service with barely any maintenance. The engine
22
as part of the front wheel must be firmly placed as it is explained in the section on the
wheels section. Otherwise, there is a risk of a serious problem.
Be especially careful with the engine cable which comes from the front wheel axle. Do
not bend, cut or damage it in any way.
Important: Avoid heavy hits to the front wheel and the rim as well, since the
engine could be damaged.
13. CLEANING
Clean the vehicle each time after having used the vehicle. Do not delay the clean since
such process can be more difficult once the mud and dirt get dried .
Use a wet piece of cloth with water and soap to clean the vehicle, later take care to dry
all the wet parts, avoiding the electric connections not to get wet.
Do not use strong products which can deteriorate the paint, cables or rubbers. Verify the
kind of product before using it.
Do not wash your DPIE3 using a high-pressure water system. The water could enter into
the bearings and other parts deteriorating their effective work
Important to use original pieces
It is extremely important to use always parts when replacing DEPIE 3
components. Not doing so may invalidate the manufacturer’s warranty
