IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
Your EEC-approved Raider Max 175 will provide you with many years of service and pleasure, providing
you take responsibility for your own safety and understand the challenges you will meet while driving.
There is much that you can do to protect yourself when driving your vehicle. You'll find many helpful
recommendations throughout this manual. The following are a few of the most important ones.
Follow the Age Recommendation
It is strongly recommended that no one under age of 16 be permitted to drive this EEC-approved Raider
Max 175 without adult supervision.
Always Wear a Helmet
Facts have proven that helmets can significantly reduce the quantity and severity of head injuries, so when
you drive your EEC-approved Raider Max 175, please always wear an approved motorcycle helmet. We
also recommend that you wear approved goggles, sturdy boots, durable gloves and other protective gear.
Take Time to Learn & Practice
8
Raider Max 175 (single-seat & double-seat): Owner’s Manual
EEC Version:1.0 Sep. 2004
Even if you have driven other buggies, you still should take time to become familiar with how this vehicle
works. Practice in a safe area until you have built your skills and gotten accustomed to this vehicle’s size and
weight.
Because many accidents have involved inexperienced or untrained drivers, we urge all drivers to take a
training course approved by the Buggy Safety Institute. Check with your dealer for more information on the
training course.
Be Alert to Hazards
The terrain can present a variety of challenges when you drive. Continually "read" the terrain for unexpected
turns, drop-offs, rocks, ruts and any other hazards. Always keep your speed low enough to allow time for
seeing and reacting to hazards.
Drive within Your Limits
Pushing limits is another major cause of EEC-approved Raider Max 175 accidents. Never drive beyond
your personal abilities or faster than conditions warrant. Remember that alcohol, drugs, fatigue and
inattention can significantly reduce your ability to make good judgments and to drive safely.
9
Raider Max 175 (single-seat & double-seat): Owner’s Manual
EEC Version:1.0 Sep. 2004
Don't Drink and Drive
Alcohol and drive never mix. Even one drink can reduce your ability of responding to changing conditions,
and every additional drink can lengthen and worsen your reaction time. So don't drink and drive, and don't
let your friends drink and drive either.
Never Drive Indoors
The exhaust from the engine contains a tasteless, odorless but poisonous gas called carbon monoxide. For
the health of your family, please don’t drive your EEC-approved Raider Max 175 in your lovely house.
Keep away from Moving Parts
You should never place your hands or any other parts of your body near any moving parts of your vehicle.
Failure to adhere to this warning will cause physical harm to your body.
Avoid Skidding or Sliding
The terrain surface can be a major factor affecting turns. Skidding or sliding a turn is more likely to occur on
slippery surfaces such as snow, ice, mud and loose gravel. If you skid or slide on ice, you may lose all
directional controls. To avoid skidding or sliding on slippery terrain surfaces, you should keep your speed
low and drive carefully.

Protective Apparel
For your safety, we strongly recommend that you always wear an approved motorcycle helmet, approved
goggles sturdy boots, durable gloves, long pants and long-sleeved shirt or jacket whenever you drive.

sticker.

• Driving pants with knee and hip pads, a driving jersey with padded elbows, and a chest and shoulder
protector.

carbon or excess oil will greatly reduce the proper engine performance.
39
Raider Max 175 (single-seat & double-seat): Owner’s Manual
EEC Version:1.0 Sep. 2004
If possible, check the spark plug gap (area between the electrodes) with a wire feeler gauge. This
specification is 0.6-0.7mm.
b. Before installing the spark plug, coat the threads lightly with the graphite grease if possible, to ensure the
easy removal next time when the spark plug needs inspection;
c. It is advisable to replace the spark plug at least once a year to insure the easy starting and good engine
performance.
C. Carburetor Adjustment
Never make unnecessary adjustments. The manufacturer recommended
settings are correct for most applications. It's not necessary to disassemble
the screw unless the carburetor needs to be replaced. Prepare a 50r/w
tachometer before the adjustment.
a. Warm up the engine for about 5~10 minutes;
b. Tighten the airscrew gently and back out 2-3/8 turns anticlockwise;
c. Connect the tachometer, and adjust the throttle to limit the idle speed (the standard value is 1700 RPM);
d. Slowly turn the airscrew anticlockwise; observe the RPM of the engine, and stop the adjusting as the RPM
40
Raider Max 175 (single-seat & double-seat): Owner’s Manual
EEC Version:1.0 Sep. 2004
reaches the top speed;
e. Adjust the screw, and adjust the idle speed to an ideal value;
f. Repeat the steps d and e until the rotate speed of the engine becomes stable.
D. Cleaning Instructions
Keep your vehicle clean. Use a clean rag to wipe off the dirt and oil from around the controls, and wipe off
any spilled fuel and oil. Keep the engine clean of foreign objects and be sure that the water tank fan is free of
debris for proper cooling.
E. Vehicle Lubrication
Lubricate your vehicle every 90 days of use. Apply several drops of oil in the specific points.
F. Chain Lubrication
Fill a spay atomizer with the specified chain lubrication, and
lubricate the chain.
G. Chain Adjustment
Check the chain adjustment after the first two hours of use, and
41
Raider Max 175 (single-seat & double-seat): Owner’s Manual
EEC Version:1.0 Sep. 2004
readjust the chain if it has more than 1/2" flex.
a. Loosen Nut # 1;
b. Turn Nut # 2 clockwise in 1/2-turn increments, then turn nut # 1 until it is tightened;
c. Repeat the two steps a, b until the chain is adjusted to the desired tension.
H. Adjustment of Front Shock
There are five adjustable positions on each shock. The default position
is in the middle set by the manufacturer.
Use a round nut wrench as you adjust the shock. The tension of the
shock spring will increase as you screw to the left and decrease as you
screw to the right.
I. Storage Instructions
In the event your vehicle isn’t to be operated for periods in excess of 30 days or at the end of each driving
season, prepare for the storage as follows:
42
Raider Max 175 (single-seat & double-seat): Owner’s Manual
a.
EEC Version:1.0 Sep. 2004
Drain (or use a fuel stabilizer) all the fuel out of the fuel tank and carburetor;
b. Remove the spark plug; pour one ounce of clean cylinder lubricating oil through the spark plug hole into
the cylinder, and crank the engine slowly to spread the oil so as to lubricate the cylinder better; replace
the spark plug;
c.
Don’t save or store gasoline over winter, because the old gasoline has deteriorated in the winter storage,
and will cause hard starting and affect the engine performance.
"
Don’t drain the fuel while the engine is hot.
"
