IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION FOR PARENTS
x.
As a parent, your child's safety is your first priority. Riding an off-road motorcycle is very fun.
However, just like riding a bicycle, bad decisions can result in injury. As a parent, you can greatly
prevent accidents by making informed decisions about if, when and how your child will ride. Always
supervise your child when he/she is riding.
Before you allow your child to ride, you need to decide if he/she is capable of riding. Riding readiness
can vary tremendously from one person to another. Age and size are not being the only factors that help
dctenninc one's riding readiness. There arc three other factors that you should also consider before
deciding if your child is ready to ride.
First, consider the physical ability of your child. Riders must be able to hold the motorcycle up, get on,
and sit comfortably with both feet on the ground. The rider must also be able to reach all of the controls
on the handlebars and work the brakes and clutch. Second, consider your child's athletic ability. Your
child should be good at riding a bicycle before riding a motorcycle. Determine if your child can judge
speeds and distances while riding a bicycle and react with the proper hand and foot actions. Any person
who does not have good coordination, balance, and agility should not ride this motorcycle.
Finally, detenninc your child's level of mental maturity. It is imperative that you arc honest with
yourself when you ask yourself the following questions: Does your child think through problems and
come to logical conclusions? Does your child obey your rules when they ride their bicycle? If your child
makes bad judgments, takes un-warranted risks and/or does not obey your rules, they should not ride this
motorcycle.
If you have decided that your child is ready to ride, please remember the following points and never let
your child ride without a helmet. lt is up to you (parent) to ensure your child's safety, even if they learn
to ride from another experienced adult. Never push your child to try things faster tban they are willing or
capable. Always supervise your child when they are riding and regularly remind them about safety rules.
As a parent it is your responsibility to be sure that the motorcycle is properly maintained and kept in safe
operating condition.
Modifying this motorcycle or using parts not manufactured by Crossfire Motorcycles can make your
motorcycle unsafe. Before you consider making any modifications or adding an accessory, please read
the following information carefully.
t•\WM�@a
Improper accessories or modifications can cause a crash in which you can be seriously
hurt or killed. Follow all instructions in this owner's manual regarding and accessories.
Crossfire Motorcycles strongly recommends that you do not remove any original equipment or modify
your motorcycle in any way that may alter the design and/or operation. Such a change could drastically
impair the stability, handling, acceleration, and braking capabilities of the motorcycle and cause a crash.
We also strongly suggest that you do not make any modifications to the exhaust system, noise control
system or emission control components.

IS THE MOTORCYCLE READY TO RIDE?
J>C
Before each and every ride you take, it is extremely important that you inspect the motorcycle and make
sure any problems you find are corrected. A pre-ride inspection is a must because off-road riding can be
very tough on a motorcycle and you do not want to have a breakdown for from help.
If a youngster will be performing any of the following
pre-ride inspection procedures, it is your responsibility
to provide careful supervision and make sure they are
performed safely.
Improperly maintaining your motorcycle or failing to
correct a problem before riding can cause a crash in
which you can be seriously hurt or killed. Always
preform a pre-ride inspection before any ride and
correct any problems.
PRE-RIDE INSPECTION
Check the following items before you get on the motorcycle:
Tires - Use a tire pressure gauge to check the air pressure. Inflate or deflate as needed. Also check for
signs of damage or excessive wear.
Spokes & Rims - Make sure all of the spokes are tight. Inspect the rim to be sure it is not bent.
Leaks - Look under the motorcycle for signs of leaking fluids such as engine oil or gasoline.
Engine Oil - Check the level of engine oil and add if needed. For better performance,
Xmotos recommends using 10W40 or lOWSO ONLY for off road riding or racing.
Fuel- Check the level of fuel in the gas tank. Add if needed. Be sure the gas cap is tightened securely.
Drive Chain - Inspect the drive chain condition and slack. Adjust and lubricate if needed. Also check the
chain guide(s) and roller(s) for wear and replace if and when it is worn. For detailed instructions on drive
chain slack adjustment, see the Servicing section of this manual.
Brake Hoses - Inspect the brake hoses for leaks and replace if needed.
Nuts & Bolts - Inspect all accessible nuts and bolts. Tighten then if it is needed.
Spark Plug & Cap- Check the spark plug for looseness. Tighten if needed. Be sure the cap is pushed on the
spark plug and it is tight properly.
Check the following items after you get on the motorcycle:
Throttle - Check the throttle free-play and adjust if needed. Rotate the throttle to be sure it moves easily
and freely. Make sure that it snaps back to its closed position automatically when you release it in all
steering positions.
Brakes- Step on the rear brake lever and squeeze the front brake lever to be sure the brakes are working
properly.
Remember, be sure to take care of any problems you find or have your Crossfire Motorcycles dealer
correct it before you ride.

STOPPING THE ENGINE
To stop the engine, shift into neutral and push the engine stop switch Oon the left side of the handle bar.
A..
DO NOT ride your motorcycle with full load and DO NOT
rev up the engine when cold. Since the piston warms up
and expands faster than the water cooled cylinder, this
might cause engine damage. Always let the engine idle
until warm or ride it warm at low RPM speeds.
For your safety, avoid starting or operating the
motorcycle in an enclosed area with poor ventilation,
such as a garage. The motorcycle's exhaust gas contains
poisonous carbon monoxide which can collect rapidly in
an enclosed area and result in illness or death.

SHIFTING GEARS
This motorcycle has four (4) forward gears.
To start riding, after the engine has been warmed up and the
side stand raised:
I. Close the throttle and squeeze the clutch lever all the way in.
12Scc - 140cc
2. Depress the shift lever form neutral down to first gear. Once
the transmission clicks into gear, the shift lever will return back
to the neutral "N" position once you remove your foot.
3. Slowly and gradually open the throttle and release the clutch
lever in a simultaneous motion. When you feel the clutch begin
to grab and the motorcycle starts to ease forward, you have
reached the "friction zone" of the clutch. Gradually open the
lSOcc - 160cc
throttle more and release the clutch lever completely as the
motorcycle moves forward.
4. When you attain moderate speed, close the throttle and squeeze the clutch lever at the same time.
Raise the shift lever until it clicks into second gear. After shifting, re-open the throttle and release the
clutch lever.
5. To continue shifting up to each higher gear, repeat step 4.
6. To shift down to a lower gear, close the throttle and pull the clutch. Depress the shift lever until you
feel it click into gear. After shifting, re-apply the throttle and release the clutch lever smoothly.

Remember to close the throttle before shifting
gears. Improper shifting may damage the engine,
transmission, and drive train.
learning when to shift gears will come with riding experience. Up-shift into a higher gear when you hear
the engine speed {rpm) get too high. When the engine rpm gets too high in a gear, you will feel the
motorcycle stop accelerating. This is another way to know when to up-shift.
Downshift to a lower gear when you feel the engine lugging at a low rpm. Downshifting is usually done
when you slow down for a turn or when you stop the motorcycle. Downshifting into a lower gear can help
slow down your motorcycle, especially when going down-hill. However, down shifting when the engine
rpm is too high can cause engine damage.
The neutral position of the transmission is located between the first and second gear positions. To shift
into neutral, pull the clutch lever in and depress the shift lever as many times as needed to get into first
gear. Once you are in first gear, pull up on the shift lever Y, the distance required to up-shift into second
gear. You can also shift into neutral from second gear by depressing the shift lever Y, the distance required
to downshift into first gear.
To prevent transmission damage, do not coast or tow the motorcycle for long distances with engine off.
Never attempt to start the engine in gear. Doing
so may cause a crash that could result in serious
injury or death.
21
x.
BRAKING TECHNIQUE
This section will cover basic braking technique for your motorcycle. To slow or stop the motorcycle,
squeeze and hold the clutch lever and apply the front brake lever and rear brake pedal finnly and smoothly.
If your speed is reduced a significant amount, you may need to downshift to a lower gear. Gradually
increase your braking pressure as you feel it is needed. When you come to a stop, put your left foot down
first, then the right foot. Do this so that your brake pedal foot remains on the brake pedal until you come to a
complete stop. To prevent the engine from stalling, always pull and hold the clutch lever when slowing to a
complete stop unless you are in neutral.
I
'
For maximum braking, close the throttle and finnly apply both the front and rear brake. On a motorcycle,
the front brake accounts for 70% of the total stopping power of the motorcycle. The rear brake only
accounts for 30%. This is because of the weight transfer that occurs when you apply the brakes. When you
must stop quickly, you must use the front brake together with the rear brake.
Remember that you can apply more brake to the front wheel than you can to the rear wheel before it will
lock up and cause a skid. Finding the proper balance between the amount of front and rear brake pressure
you use will come with experience. Attempting an abrupt stop with only the rear brake will likely cause a
skid.
Applying the brakes too hard or too fast can cause the wheels to lock and cause a skid, reducing your control
of the motorcycle. If this happens, release the brake controls and steer straight ahead until you regain control
of the motorcycle. Once you have control, reapply the brakes with less force.
Generally, reduce your speed and complete your braking before you begin a tum. Avoid braking or closing
the throttle quickly while turning. Either of these actions may cause one or both of the wheels to slip. Any
wheel slip will reduce your control over the motorcycle and could cause a crash.
When riding in wet or rainy conditions, or on loose surfaces such as mud or sand, your ability to maneuver
and stop the motorcycle will be reduced. All of your actions should be done in a smooth and steady manner
under these conditions. Rapid acceleration, braking, or turning can cause you to lose control of the
motorcycle. For your safety, exercise extreme caution when riding under wet, rainy, and/or muddy
conditions.
When descending a long, steep grade, use engine compression braking by downshifting with intennittent use
of both brakes.
PARKING & POST RIDE INSPECTION
Lower the side stand, to support your motorcycle. Press and hold the red stop switch on the left side of the
handle bar until your engine stops. If you arc through riding for the day, tum the fuel valve to the "OFF"
position. Always park the motorcycle on a flat level surface. If you will be storing the motorcycle for a long
period of time, tum the fuel valve to the "OFF" position while tbe engine is still running. Open and close the
throttle repeatedly until the engine stops running on its own. Do this to use up any foel that still remains in
the carburetor. This will help you avoid carburetor problems that can occur when your motorcycle is stored
for long periods of time with gasoline left in the carburetor.

FUEL (GASOLINE)
Fuel Recommendation -Any unleaded gasoline with an octane rating of 90 or higher.
The engine in your motorcycle has been designed to rnn on any gasoline with a pump octane rating of86 or
higher. Most service stations will display the octane rati11g above each pump. Although it is not required,
Crossfire Motorcycles recommends use of gasoline with a 90 octane rating or higher to ensure maximum
performance and reliability.
Use of a lower octane gasoline can cause pre-detonation in the engine. When this occurs, you will hear a
persistent "pinging" or "spark knock" which, if severe, can cause engine damage. lt is however no cause for
concern if you hear light pinging while the engine is under hard acceleration, such as climbing up a hill. If
pinging occurs under normal load and a steady engine speed, switch brands of gasoline and be sure you are
using the proper octane rating. Use of unleaded fuel is recommended because it produces fewer engine
deposits and extends the life of the engine and exhaust components.
Never use stale or contaminated gasoline. Never use gasoline that has been mixed with oil. Avoid
getting dust, dirt and water into the fuel tank.

AIR FILTER
i
Proper air filter maintenance is extremely important for off-road vehicles. A dirty, water-soaked, worn-out
air filter will allow dirt, dust, mud or other impurities to pass into the engine. If you are riding in wet and/or
muddy areas, you should service the air filter more often. Always replace the air filter with a genuine
Crossfire Motorcycles filter specifically designed for your model or a filter of equal quality.
Failure to maintain the filter can/may cause engine wear or damage, expensive repairs, low engine power,
low fuel mileage, carbon build up on valves and foul the spark plug.
CHANGING THE AIR FILTER
1. Loosen the clamp that is holding the air filter on to the carburetor.
2. Once you have loosened the clamp take out the air filter.
3. If the filter has a tear or break in the filter element, it must be replaced.
4. Once the filter is removed, wash it clean with a non-flammable cleaning solvent. Then wash in hot,
soapy water, rinse well. Then allow the filter to dry well.
5. When the filter is thoroughly dry, spray the filter with a good quality air filter oil. Saturate the filter with
the oil, rubbing it with both hands. Squeeze out any excess.
6. Assemble the filter back in being careful not to tear the filter.
7. Tighten the clamp on the filter.

In order to ensure the best performance and durability from the clutch, always be sure you have proper
clutch free-play. Free-play is needed to ensure that the clutch has room for wear. A clutch with no free-play
will begin to slip as the discs wear down. Failure to fix a slipping clutch can cause clutch damage. To check
the free-play, simply pull on the clutch lever. The lever should move very easily within the free-play range
before you feel the clutch begin to engage. If too much or too little free-play exists, adjustments are needed.

SPARK PLUG
The recommended standard spark plug will work very well in most riding condition. However, if you plan
on riding for extended periods of time at high speed or high engine rpm in hot climates, or plan extended
riding in cold climates, a different plug may be recommended.
A fouled (dirty) spark plug can cause your motorcycle to run poorly and lose performance. Follow the steps
below to inspect, clean and/or replace the spark plug if needed.
I. Clean any dust and dirt from around the spark plug base.
2. Disconnect the spark plug cap.
3. Remove the spark plug.
4. Using the photos below for reference, examine the plug to detennioe its cleanliness. If the plug is a normal
color, go on to step 6. If the plug is fouled (dirty), go to step 5.
5. Using moderate grit sandpaper (220-400), sand between the center electrode and the side electrode until all
carbon and oil deposits are removed. Crossfire Motorcycles recommends that you use a spark plug cleaner
or a new spark plug if the plug is very dirty.
6. Inspect the spark plug electrodes for wear. The center electrode should have square edges. The side
electrode should not be eroded at all. The insulator should not be cracked or chipped. Replace the plug if any
electrode wear and/or cracks are present.
7. Check the spark plug gap using a spark plug gaper. Gapers can be purchased at your local auto parts store.
The spark plug gap should be .02 - .03 in (0.6 - 0.7mm). Always check the gap of a new spark plug before
you install it.
8. Be sure all dirt has been cleaned from the threads. Install the spark plug by hand. This will prevent
stripping and/or cross threading of the threads. Use a 5/8 in socket or wrench to securely tighten the spark
plug. Do not over or under tighten the spark plug.

Center Electrode
When you inspect the spark plug, generally it will fit into one of the four categories shown above. A normal/clean
spark plug will have a light brown center and displays no wear around the electrodes. A spark plug with a bright white
center indicates a lean condition in the engine. If your plug looks like this, have your motorcycle serviced by your
Xmotos dealer immediately. A carbon fouled plug will be completely black with no gloss. An oil fouled plug will
appear a dark shiny brown or shiny black as shown above. An oil fouled plug is caused when the engine oil seeps by
the piston ring and is burned with the fuel. Oil fouled plugs are not uncommon, however, if your motorcycle is
consistently oil fouling spark plugs, have it serviced by your local Crossfire Motorcycles dealer immediately.

BLEEDING THE BRAKE SYSTEM
Because the brake system utilizes fluid, any air bubbles inside the brake system will cause you to lose
braking efficiency. Air generally enters the brake system when the motorcycle sits unused for long periods
of time. Air will also enter the system if you have a leaking brake hose, brake caliper or master cylinder. A
brake system with air will cause the brake lever and pedal to feel soft and spongy. Use the procedure below
to bleed air from both the front and rear brake system.
BRAKE BLEEDING PROCEDURE

RIMS & SPOKES
Maintenance of spokc tension and wheel trueness (roundness) is critical to safe motorcycle operation.
During the first I OOmiles of riding, spokes will loosen faster due to the initial seating of the parts.
Excessively loose spokes will cause the motorcycle to become unstable at high speed and could cause you to
lose control. Loose spokes can also cause rim and spoke damage (not covered in the warranty).
lt is not necessary to remove the wheels for regular maintenance. However, infonnation on wheel removal
is available from Crossfire Motorcycles.
WHEEL INSPECTION (FRONT & REAR)
1. Inspect the wheel rimsO and spokes G) for damage.
Feel all of the spokes with your fingers to make sure none
are loose.
2. Tighten any loose spokes with a small adjustable wrench
e
or spoke wrench from the spoke nut
3. Elevate each wheel off the ground, one at a time, and
spin the wheel slowly. Look for a wobble in the wheel. If
a wobble is evident, the wheel is not "true". See your
Crossfire Motorcycles dealer or local motorcycle shop for
inspection.
TIRE AIR PRESSURE
Properly inflated tires will provide you with the best combination of handling, tread life, and riding comfort.
Generally speaking, underinflated tires will wear unevenly and adversely affect handling. Underinflated tires
are also more likely to fail from being overheated and can cause wheel damage on rocky terrain.
Overinflated tires will cause the motorcycle to ride harshly, are prone to failure from surface hazards and
wear unevenly.
Make sure the valve stem caps are secure, if needed, install a new cap. Always check air pressure when your
tires are cold. If you check the air pressure when the tires are wann, you will get higher readings. If you let
air out of waim tires to match the recommended cold tire pressure, the tires will be underinflated. The
correct cold tire pressures are listed below. If you replace the tire, inflate the tire to the following tire
pressure amount marked below.

TIRE INSPECTION
A flat tire or tire blowout can be very inconvenient and can even cause you to have an accident. Take the
time to inspect your tires and wheels before you ride. For more information about handling a flat tire, refer
to the section of this manual titled, Resolving the Unexpected.
}>- Inspect the tire carefully for bumps or bulges in the sidewall of the tire and inside of the treads.
replace any tires that have bumps or bulges in them.
:.- Look closely for cuts, slits or cracks in the tires. Replace any tire if you can see a fabric or cord showing
through.
:.- Check for rocks or other objects embedded in the tires or tread. Remove any foreign objects. Be sure
there are no screws or nails in the tires.
:.- Measure the tread depth of the tires. Replace all tires before the read depth gets below 0.12in (3mm) or
anytime you notice a reduction in your traction.
:.- Check the position of both valve stems. A tilted valve stem indjcates that the tube is slipping inside of
the tire or the tire is slipping on the rim. See your Crossfire Motorcycles dealer for assistance.
TIRE & TUBE REPLACEMENT
If a tube has been punctured or damaged, it should be replaced immediately. You may repair the tube using
a tube patch kit. However, a repaired tube may not have the same reliability as a new one and could fail
while riding. For more information on a temporary repair, see the section titled Resolving the Unexpected.
Always use replacement tubes that are the same size as the 01iginal. We recommend tbat you have tubes
changed at your local Crossfire Motorcycles dealer or your local motorcycle shop. Replacing a tube requires
removal and installation of the wheel. Anytime you have a tube replaced, perfom1 the tire inspection listed
at the top of this page. The tires that came on your motorcycle were designed to provide a good
combination of handling, braking, durability and comfort across a broad range of riding conditions.
:.- Use a replacement tire equivalent in size and type to the original tire.
:.- Replace the tube anytime you replace a tire. Old tubes are usually stretched and, if installed in a new tire,
could fail.

The service life of your drive chain will depend on several factors including proper lubrication, adjustment,
and riding style. If you are an experienced rider and tend to ride in a more intense manner, or you ride in
muddy/dusty areas, you will need to check the drive chain more frequently. Poor maintenance will cause
pre-mature wear and/or damage to the drive chain and sprockets.
Before you service your drive chain, be sure you are parked on a level surface and you turn the engine OFF.
Be sure the transmission is in neutral. It is not necessary to remove or replace the chain to perfonn
recommended maintenance service.

3. Inspect the drive chain for the following: damaged rollers, loose pins, dry or rusted links, kinked or
binding links and excessive wear. Replace the chain, loose pins, or kinks that cannot be freed. Lubricate
the drive chain if it appears dry or shows signs of rust. Lubricate any kinked or binding links and work
them free.
4. You should replace the drive chain once the rear axle is moved as far back as possible and slack still
remains. This indicates that the chain is worn beyond its service limit.

RESOLVING THE UNEXPECTED
GENERAL GUIDELINES
]:)(t II
If you encounter trouble during a ride, the first thing you should do is stop as soon as it is safely possible. Do
not continue to ride if you have a flat tire, if you hear an unusual noise, or if your motorcycle just does not
feel right. If you continue to ride, you will cause more damage the motorcycle and endanger your own safety.
After you stop, take time to carefully look over your motorcycle and identify the problem. Always consider
all of your options before you make a decision. Sometimes a problem can be relatively minor and can be
permanently repaired on the trail provided you have the tools, supplies and skills needed to do so. ln addition,
you may be able to make a temporary repair and ride slowly back to your base where you can get further help
and/or supplies.
When a problem appears to be more serious; or you do not have the tools, supplies and skills needed to make
a repair, you will need to choose a safe way to get yourself and the motorcycle back to your base. If you are
close enough, you can often push the motorcycle back.
Whatever tbe problem may be, always follow the instructions below:
I. Always put safety first.
2. If the problem is minor and you have the tools, supplies and skills needed to make a temporary repair, be
sure to make permanent repairs as soon as possible.
3. Do not continue riding if you are hurt or if your motorcycle is not in safe riding condition.
Recommendations for specific problems follow.
IF THE ENGINE QUITS or WILL NOT START
If the engine was not making unusual noises before it quit running, and it feels nonnal when you operate the
kick starter, you can probably rule out a major mechanical problem.
First, check the fuel system:
I. Make sure you have fuel in the gas tank and the fuel valve is set to the ''ON" position.
2. Check the fuel tank cap breather hose to be sure it is not pinched or clogged.
3. Tum the fuel valve to the "OFF" position. Disconnect the fuel line from the carburetor and momentarily
turn the fuel valve to "ON". If fuel does not flow out, there is an obstruction in the fuel tank, fuel filter, or in
the fuel line.
If the fuel system appears to be okay, check the ignition system.
I. Check the spark plug cap. Be sure that it is not loose or disconnected.
2. Disconnect the spark plug cap and remove the spark plug. Connect the spark plug to the plug cap and place
the threaded end of the spark plug on a metal part of the engine.
3. Kick the kick staiter while you watch the spark plug. Jf it sparks, the ignition system is probably working.
If there is no spark, replace the spark plug with a new one. If there is still no spark, there is a problem with
the ignition system.
If you cannot identify or correct a problem, you will have to push your motorcycle back to your base or get
some help.

RESOLVING THE UNEXPECTED
IF YOU HAVE A FLAT TIRE
How you handle a nat tire on the trail will depend on the severity of the damage to the tire and/or the inner tube
and what tools and supplies you keep with you. If you have a slow leak or a minor puncture, there are two ways
you can try to make a tempora,y repair:
I. Use an aerosol tire sealer to seal the puncture and inflate the tube. You can do this without removing the wheel.
2. Use a tube repair kit to patch the hole in the inner tube. This requires removal of the wheel and tire.
If the leak is more severe, or a temporary repair does not hold up, you will need to replace the inner tube.
If the tire is also severely damaged, you will need to replace the tire as well.
If you cannot repair the nat tire on the trail, you will need to push the motorcycle back to your base or send for
help. Do not ride on a flat tire. The motorcycle will be hard to handle, and if the tire comes of the rim, it can lock
up the wheel and cause you to crash.
IF YOU CRASH
Personal safety is the first priority after an accident. If you or anyone else has been injured, take plenty of time to
assess the severity of the injuries and determine if it is safe to continue tiding. If you cannot ride safely, send
someone for help. Do not ride if you will risk further injury or if your motorcycle has been damaged too severely.
If you decide you are capable of riding safely, carefully inspect the motorcycle for damage. Check the tightness of
critical nuts and bolts such as the handle bars, control levers, brakes and wheels. If there is minor damage, or you
are not sure about possible damage but decide to ride back to your base, ride slowly and cautiously.
Sometimes crash damage is hidden or not immediately apparent. Once you get home, go over your motorcycle
thoroughly and fix any problems that you find. Also. be sure to have your Xmotos dealer inspect the frame and
suspension after a serious crash.
IF A COMPONENT FAILS
The drive chain, master link, control cables, brake controls, and other components can be damaged if you ride in
dense brush or over rocky terrain. As mentioned earlier, making the repair on the trail will depend on the severity
of the damage, tools, supplies, and skills that you have.
I. If the drive chain comes off because the master link clip has been knocked off, you may be able to repair the
chain with a new master link. However, if the chain is broken or causes damage when it comes off, you may not
be able to make a trailside repair.
2. If any component of the front braking system is damaged, you may be able to ride back to your base carefully
using the rear brake for slowing and stopping. Likewise, if a component of the rear braking system fails, you can
use the front brake for slowing and stopping.
3. lf you damage the throttle cable or some other critical component, the motorcycle may be unsafe to ride.
Carefully assess the damage and make any repairs that you can. But if you have any doubts, it is best to be
conservative and safe.
