ScooterX X-Bomber / X-Dirt Dog / X
Getting Started:
First start by unfolding the handlebars, then tighten the bolt at the bottom of the handle
bar until secure. This step will stabilize the handlebars. Next connect the handle bar to the
neck using the three allen bolts. Fasten until secure. Next attach the gas tank with the two
screws provided. We recommend using loc-tite glue to prevent the screws, and bolts from
rattling loose (loc-tite is available at most auto part stores). Next you need to install the
front tire. Remove a nut off one end of the axle, and then slide the axle thru the front tire
and the scooter frame at the same time. Make sure you have one spacer and one washer
on each side of the wheel. Put the nut back on, and fasten securely. Once the scooter is
completely assembled you need to check that all screws and bolts are securely fastened.
Loc tite is highly recommended if you prefer easy maintenance.
Starting your ScooterX:
Before you add gas you need to make sure the oil is mixed in properly. The gas/oil ratio
is 25:1 the ratio mixing canister included with your scooter will make fuel mixing easy. If
you are not using the mixing canister simply measure out 5 ounces of two stroke oil for
every gallon of unleaded gas. Once you have the proper mixture add gas to the scooter,
and secure the gas cap. On the bottom of the carburetor you will see a small bubble. This
is the primer bulb. You will need to pump the bulb until you see the fuel reach the
carburetor. You should only need to pump the bulb when gas is first added to the tank, or
if it has not been started in a while. Next make sure the choke lever is in the upright
position. You will need to use the choke every time the motor is started cold. Next pull
the starter cord. If the scooter doesn't start within three to four pulls simply turn the
throttle halfway while pulling the cord. After it starts let the motor warm up for about 1
minute. Once it is warm put the choke lever in the down position and ride in brake in
mode for the first tank of gas.
Breaking in the motor:
This process is very easy, and will help extend the life, and performance of the engine. If
not broken in properly your engines performance may suffer. For the first tank of gas do
not exceed half throttle. Once you have used up your first tank of gas the break in process
will be complete, and you can ride as fast as you are allowed to go.
Brake adjustment:
There are 3 adjustments that can be made to the brakes. First you will see an adjustable
nut bolt on the side of the hand brake lever assembly. Loosen the bolt, and turn it out
about half an inch. Secure the nut clockwise, and then test brakes. If the brakes still need
further adjustment you can adjust the pads as necessary. If your brake cable is loose,
simply loosen the hex head screw that holds the wire to the caliper arm. Then pull the
wire further thru the caliper until tight, and secure the screw.
Carburetor adjustment:
Sometimes the carburetors aren't quite adjusted correctly from the factory. If your scooter
isn't going as fast as it should, or it won't idle, then you probably need to adjust your
carburetor. It's easy to adjust one. Just follow these steps:
Remove the air filter cover. This is the black box located on the left side of the scooter,
towards the front of the engine. There is a screw right in the middle to unscrew.
You should now be able to see the air filter and behind it the carburetor. There are two
screws on the carburetor which you can adjust, the air screw and the idle screw (see
picture to right for guide).
Usually the idle screw doesn't need any adjustment. If it does, it doesn't require much
movement (half a turn or so). What usually needs adjustment is the air screw. We've
found screwing it all the way in, and then out 3 1/2 turns is usually the right setting. You
should try putting the scooter up on a brick or chair, and then giving it full throttle after
you adjust it. It's adjusted optimally when the engine is making the highest pitched noise.
Always check all nuts, bolts, and screws to make sure they are secure for safe scooting.
Clean the air filter at least once a month, or every 30-40 hours of use. The air filter is
located to the left of the carburetor inside the black plastic air box. Clean the filter using a
quality air filter cleaner available at any auto parts store. It is a good idea to use loc-tite
solution on all nuts, and bolts so they remain securely fastened.
My scooter won’t start:
(1) The most common problem we run into is the fuel being mixed wrong. Double check
the ratio is 25:1 If you ad too much oil your scooter will be extremely hard to start, or it
simply won't start at all. If you think you added too much oil simply pour the old gas out,
and replace it with a new mixture. It is best to mix your gas in a gallon container so you
can shake it, and mix it well. To make a 25:1 ratio in a gallon of gas simply ad 5 ounces
of 2 cycle oil to 1 gallon of unleaded gasoline. If the scooter sits for longer than a day the
gas, and oil may settle. You should shake the scooter to remix the oil into the gas before
you ride again.
(2) Another common problem is not giving the scooter a little throttle while trying to
start the scoter. This is recommended for easy starting, and it will not harm the scooter in
any way.
(3) Another possibility is that your carburetor is out of adjustment. There are 2
adjustments on the carburetor. One is a flat head screw, and the other is a cross head
screw. They are both located on the side of the carburetor. The cross head screw is the
idle adjustment, and the flat head is the air/fuel adjustment. The idle screw should only be
adjusted if the scooter is not idling properly. If you want it to idle higher while the engine
is running turn the idle screw clockwise until the scooter idles properly. To adjust the
air/fuel screw turn it all the way in, then turn it back out 3 and 1/2 full turns. This is the
factory setting.
(4) Make sure the fuel lines are not kinked, clogged, or leaking.
(5) Make sure the kill switch is not engaged, make sure kill switch is not frayed, or
(6) Check spark plug, and wire connection.
Preparing to ride:
Your personal equipment and good judgment are the only protection you will have. A
safe rider wears a helmet, and also makes a point to:
Wear the proper clothing / pads, use eye, and face protection, checks the scooters
equipment, and tests the scooters equipment before every ride.
Safety pads:
Safety pads are important to help protect you against injury. Here is a list of
recommended safety equipment:
Helmet, Elbow pads, Knee pads, Wrist guards, Gloves, and shoes, or boots.
Being seen by others on the road is very important. Bright colored clothes, and reflective
gear will help make you more noticeable, and less likely to be hit by another driver.
Check the scooter:
A scooter needs more frequent attention than a car. The best time to figure out if there is
something that needs attention is before you ride. Check the following:
Check all nuts, screws, and bolts, steering moves freely, brakes, and controls, for proper
operation, and location of levers, frame, for stress, and fractures, tires, for wear, and
puncture wounds. Read and fully understand the instruction manual.
Know your scooter:
Familiarize yourself with the scooter before you ride. Check the controls, and ride very
cautiously until you become familiar with the way the scooter handles. Take turns slowly,
and give yourself extra stopping distance.
Ride within your abilities:
To control your scooter, you will need to keep it upright, and make it go where you want
it to go. This section cannot teach you how to control direction, speed, or balance. Only a
lot of practice will do that. Here are a few things to help you.
Very important:
Never operate under the influence of drugs, or alcohol. Never attempt wheelies, jumps, or
stunts. Keep away from any source of fire (especially while refueling). The engine, and
muffler are extremely hot, never touch these parts unless the engine is completely cool.
Minors should never operate without close adult supervision. Never operate scooter on
surfaces which are slick, or unstable.
New riders tend to have more trouble turning than experienced riders do. The only way to
make good safe turns is to practice. Always approach turns very carefully.
Front brakes provide most of your stopping power; however you will need to learn to
adjust your center of gravity to maintain stability. Again practice this at safe speed until
you are completely comfortable with this action.
Areas to ride:
Ride in a safe place that is free of cars in an area that will not disturb other people, or
animals, and be sure the ground is clean, and dry. Never operate your scooter on a public
street, road, or highway.
