INTRODUCTION, SAFETY, AND
WARNINGS
ABOUT THIS MANUAL: This Manual was written to help you get the most
performance, comfort, enjoyment and safety when riding your new electric scoter. It
is important for you to understand your new electric scooter. By reading this manual
before you or your child go out on your first ride, you will know how to get the most
from your new electric scooter. It is also important that your or your child’s first
ride on your new electric scooter be in a controlled environment, away from cars,
obstacles, and other riders.
GENERAL WARNING:
Riding an electric scooter can be a dangerous activity, even under the best of
circumstances. Proper maintenance of your new scooter is your responsibility and
helps reduce the risk of injury. Certain conditions may cause components to fail
without fault of the manufacturer. The Scooter 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 a thing does occur, you
can become seriously injured or die, even when using safety equipment and other
safety precautions.
RIDE AT YOUR OWN RISK AND ALWAYS USE COMMON SENSE.
This manual contains many warnings and cautions concerning the consequences of
failing to inspect, maintain or properly use your electric scooter. Because any fall 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 in this manual or the risk of
falling leads to a warning.
ALWAYS USE PROPER SAFETY EQUIPMENT AND RIDING ATTIRE
Always use appropriate safety equipment, such as a helmet, elbow pads, knee pads,
gloves, and wrist guards. A helmet is not only a good idea but may be legally required
in your community. To protect yourself or your child, the helmet must meet CPSC, 16
CFR 1203, requirements and be worn correctly:
2
Always wear appropriate clothing and shoes, including long sleeved shirts and long
pants and lace-up or similar shoes with rubber soles. Never ride barefoot or in
sandals and make sure that shoelaces or other fasteners are tied and kept away from
the wheels and drive system of the scooter.
RIDER USE AND REQUIRED PARENTAL SUPERVISION
RIDERS MUST NOT EXCEED THE WEIGHT LIMIT OF 125 pounds (56kg).
The age grade for the scooter is for ages 8 and older. Just because someone is within
the age and weight limitations specified for the scooter, does not mean that his/her
size is appropriate to fit or maintain control of the scooter or that he/she is capable
of safely operating the scooter. You are the best judge of whether you or your child
can safely operate the scooter; this includes determining whether your child is at the
appropriate developmental stage for safe use of the scooter. Any rider that is unable
to fit comfortably on the scooter should never attempt to ride it. A parent’s decision to
allow their child to use the scooter should be based on the child’s maturity, skill and
their ability to follow rules. Keep this scooter away from small children and remember
that it is intended for use only by persons who are, at a minimum, able to comfortably
and safely operate the scooter.
Children operating the scooter should be supervised by an adult at all times. Parents
should ensure that children only use the scooter safely and within their age and
physical limits.
This manual contains very important safety information. It is your responsibility to
completely review this information and make sure that all riders understand all of
the warnings, cautions, instructions and safety topics addressed in this manual
and to assure that all riders are able to safely and responsibly use the scooter. You
should periodically review and reinforce all information in this manual with all riders,
especially children. You should also regularly inspect and maintain your scooter to
insure the safety of all riders. Make sure that your new scooter is properly fitted to
any child riding it; that it is in good repair and safe operating condition; that you and
your child have gone over the use, operation and safety information in this manual;
that you and your child have learned and understand what to do and what not to do
with your new scooter, including observing all applicable laws, rules and common
sense.
Children should be made aware of all possible riding hazards and correct riding
behavior before they ride the scooter! Please explain the following to them as often
as necessary.
SAFE RIDING PRACTICES AND WARNINGS
• Check and obey all local laws or regulations which may be in effect in the
locations where the electric scooter may be used.

steerer tube onto the fork stem. The push button
should align with the locator hole on the handlebar
steerer tube and lock the steerer tube securely in
place.
NOTE: The push button should pop out through
the locator hole.
2. Tighten the clamp bolts with the 5mm Allen
key and 10 mm wrench. Tighten bolts evenly and
securely.
NOTE: Do not completely tighten each bolt,
one at a time. Rather, please alternate tightening
each bolt until they are all completely tightened to
assure that they are evenly tightened.
NOTE: The open end of the clamp should be
located in the same directin as the slot on the
8
handlebar steerer tube before you tighten it.

tightening each bolt following the sequence shown in the diagram until they are all
completely tightened, to assure that they are evenly tightened.
4. Attach figure-8-shaped plastic clips onto the
handlebar steerer tube as shown.
Inflating the Tire
The front tire is inflated during production, but it
invariably may lose some pressure between the
point of manufacturing and your purchase. Using
a bicycle style tire pump for a Schraeder valve,
inflate the front tire to the PSI indicated on the
sidewall of the tire.
CAUTION: Use of pressurized air supplies such as those found at service
stations is not recommended and if not used properly, may cause a tire to blow out.
If you do use a service station pump, make sure the pressure gauge is working and
then use very short bursts of air to inflate the tire to the correct PSI, taking care to
avoid sudden over inflation. If you exceed the recommended PSI, release the excess
pressure immediately.
9
Charging the Battery
Your electric scooter may not have a fully charged battery. Therefore it is a good idea
to charge the battery prior to use.
Initial charge time: 18 hours, and never charge the battery longer than 30 hours.
Recharge time: up to 12 hours, and never charge the battery longer than 30 hours.
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 45 minutes of continuous ride time
Average battery life: 250 charge/discharge cycles
1. Turn power OFF before charging. Plug the
charger into the charger port on the electric
scooter.
Note: Be sure to properly align the groove on
the charger input plug with the corresponding
socket on the case; otherwise, no charging
action will occur.
CHARGER
CHARGER
PORT
2. Plug the charger into a wall power outlet. The light
on the charger housing should illuminate. A red LED
light indicates the battery is charging and a green LED
indicates the battery is fully charged. (If the lights on the
charger do not light up, check the power to the outlets. If
necessary, try a different electrical outlet.)
WARNING: Always disconnect your scooter from
the charger before cleaning with liquid.
WARNINGS:
・ Turn off power switch when not in use.
・ Batteries may become damaged and could no longer accept a charge, if switch is
・
left in the ON position when not in use.
Fully charge the battery before storage.
WARNING: Failure to recharge the battery at least once a month may result
in a battery that will no longer accept a charge.
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 or two LEDs to indicate the
10
charge status. Refer to the illustration on the charger unit for the actual “charging”
and “charged” status indications for your model charger. Chargers have built-in
overcharge protection to prevent battery from being over-charged. 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:Charging produces explosive gases. Charge battery in a well
ventilated area, away from sparks, flames, smoking and combustibles.
BEFORE YOU RIDE
Before you ride always check for the following:
Safety Gear
Always wear proper protective gear such as:
• Approved safety helmet. (Helmet may be legally required by local law or
regulation in your area.)
• Elbow pads, knees pads and wrist guards
• Long sleeved shirt, long pants
• Gloves
• Lace up shoes with rubber soles.
Brake
Check the brakes for proper function. When lever is squeezed it should slow/stop the
rear wheel without excessive effort. When you apply the brake with the throttle on, the
brake cut off switch should stop the motor. Make sure that the brakes are not rubbing
when the lever is not being squeezed. Do not ride the scooter if the brakes are not
functioning properly.
Throttle
Once the power switch is placed in the “ON” position, kick the scooter up to 3mph
(5kmh) and then twist the throttle to engage the motor; the scooter will move. Make
sure that before the throttle is twisted you are in an open and safe area to ride, you
are balanced on the scooter and have both hands on the handlebar controls.
Tires
Inspect the wheels/tires for excess wear and replace if necessary. Regularly check the
front tire pressure and re-inflate as necessary.
Frame, Fork and Components
Always carefully inspect your scooter before you ride. Check for cracks, broken, worn
or loose components which should be repaired or replaced before your ride.
11
Battery
Always make sure the power switch is in the “off” position whenever the scooter is
not in use. Never store the product in outdoor conditions, never store it in the rain,
and never store the product in freezing or below freezing temperatures. These low
temperatures will permanently damage the battery.
WARNING: Always ensure that you are in a safe open area to ride before
you engage the throttle. Never twist the throttle without being on the scooter in a
balanced, ready to ride position with both hands on the handlebar controls.
Failure to follow these instructions may damage your scooter and void your warranty.
WARNING: A Scooter that does not work properly can cause you to lose
control and fall. Inspect the entire scooter thoroughly before every ride, and do not
ride the scooter until any problem has been corrected.

Riding an electric scooter can be inherently dangerous such that bodily injury or even
death can occur, especially if the rider and/or the rider’s parent does not perform the
safety and maintenance checks recommended in this manual, if the rider does not
wear a helmet, if the rider does not follow all applicable laws and rules, if the rider
goes into traffic, rides double, or engages in aggressive, stunt or extreme terrain
riding. Parents that allow their children to ride taking such actions will assume their
own risk and the risk of injury to their children, and Dynacraft will not be responsible.
THE PURCHASE OF THIS ELECTRIC SCOOTER WILL CONFIRM THE BUYER’S
AGREEMENT THAT DYNACRAFT’S LIABILITY UNDER THIS WARRANTY SHALL BE NO
GREATER THAN THE AMOUNT OF THE ORIGINAL PURCHASE PRICE AND IN NO EVENT
SHALL DYNACRAFT BE LIABLE FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES.
This Limited Warranty will be void if the product is ever
• used in a manner other than for recreation or transportation
• modified in anyway
• used as a rental
Dynacraft does not offer an extended warranty; if you have purchased an extended
warranty, it must be honored by the store from which you purchased the scooter
