Fueling
This is a two-stroke engine. Only run the engine using a mixture of gasoline
and 2-cycle engine oil.
PLEASE READ OPERATING PROCEDURES BEFORE FUELING!
1. Mix fuel (minimum 90 octane) and 2-cycle engine oil in a separate container. Use
high quality 50:1 2-cycle oil. 2.6 oz of oil for every gallon of High-Octane Gasoline.
Make sure the fuel is well mixed by shaking the container.
2. Make sure that the engine is off!
3. Slowly open the GAS CAP, so that possible over-pressure disappears.
4. Clean the tank cap area to make sure that it is free from excess dirt and debris.
* Make sure that no dirt falls into the gas tank.
5. Pour pre-mixed Gas/Oil mixture into the GAS TANK. * Do not overfill.
6. After fueling, replace the GAS CAP and tighten.
Starting
Move at least 10 feet away from where
you fill up with gas.
1. Depress clear, plastic primer bulb (on
carburetor), several times briskly until it
fills with fuel.
2. Set the CHOKE LEVER to the CHOKED
(UP) position. (Fig. 5)
3. Pull the RECOIL STARTER briskly,
making sure to hold the handle in your
grasp. (Fig. 6) * Note: Do not allow it to
snap back, let it back slowly. You may
want to give it a little throttle by gently
squeezing the GAS LEVER.
4. It may be necessary to repeat step 3
several times until the motor starts.
When starting the MOBY XS for the first
time, it may be necessary to pull the
starter handle multiple times until it
starts.
*This is because the gas needs to be drawn
into the carburetor.
5. Once the engine has started, quickly
move the CHOKE LEVER into the RUN
(DOWN) position. (Fig. 5)
6. After the engine is started, let it warm up
for 2-3 minutes before riding.

IF THE MOTOR KEEPS STALLING AT
IDLE SPEED, IT MAY BE NECESSARY
TO ADJUST THE IDLE SPEED ON THE
CARBURETOR. (Fig. 7)
Please refer to Carburetor Adjustment in the
Maintenance section on page 11 for
instructions on how to adjust idle speed.
Riding
1. Make sure that all of the exposed bolts
and screws are tightened.
2. Raise the kickstand to its upright
position.
3. Make sure the engine is running.
4. Put one foot on the deck of the MOBY
XS. While pushing off with the other foot,
gently depress the THROTTLE LEVER,
on the right side of the handlebars. The
MOBY XS will begin to move on its own
power.
5. Control your speed by pressing and
releasing the accelerator lever. The
harder you squeeze, the faster you will
go.
Braking
1. To brake, release the THROTTLE
LEVER and depress the BRAKE LEVER
(on the left side of the handlebars). You
can also use the rear foot brake. (Fig. 8)
2. Gradually decrease the engine speed to
idle and press the kill switch button on
the handlebar tube. (Fig. 9) This will turn
the engine OFF.
FOLDING AND STORAGE
When you are done riding the MOBY XS you can fold it down for compact storage,
carrying and transportation. To fold down the MOBY XS, use one hand to pull up on
the folding handle while gently pulling down on the handlebars. BE CAREFUL NOT
TO HIT YOUR HEAD WITH THE HANDLEBAR. Use the hook to secure the
handlebars when in the folded position. You can now carry the MOBY XS by the
handlebar tube.

remaining amount of fuel. Mix (shake) the fuel-oil thoroughly before filling
the fuel tank.

Carburetor Adjustment
WARNING!
Never start the engine without the complete clutch cover assembled!
Otherwise the clutch can come loose and cause personal injuries.
In the carburetor, fuel is mixed with air. When the engine is test run at
the factory, the carburetor is basically adjusted. A further adjustment
may be required from time to time, depending on climate and altitude.
The carburetor has only one possible adjustment:
T= idle speed adjustment screw
Idle Speed Adjustment
When the idle speed is adjusted properly, the engine will run smoothly,
without pressing the THROTTLE LEVER. (Fig. 10)
If Adjustment Is Required:
1. Start the engine.
2. Using a long, Philips head screwdriver
gently close (clockwise) the T-screw
until the MOBY XS starts to move
forward.
3. Then open (counter-clockwise) the
screw until the MOBY XS stops.
4. You have reached the correct idle speed
when the engine runs smoothly below
the RPM when the MOBY XS starts to
move.
Note: Standard idle RPM is about 25003000 RPM.

Page 11
WARNING!
When the engine is idling, under no circumstances should your MOBY
XS be moving.
If the MOBY XS continues to move after idle speed adjustment, contact
Bladez or your local Bladez service center.
Tires And Wheels
The Bladez MOBY XS uses an identical rim and tire assembly on the front and rear
wheel, which means that the tires can be rotated. The wheels are actually two wheel
halves (split rim) bolted together to make it easier to remove and replace the tire and
tube.
Tire wear will differ based on rider weight, riding conditions and care. Replacement
tires can be obtained at your local Bladez dealer, through motorcycle shops, or from
the Bladez website at www.ebladez.com.
Tire Pressure
The tire must be inflated to a maximum of 60 P.S.I. It is also recommended to
use a tube additive like Slime available from any motorcycle shop, to avoid
inconvenient punctures.
WARNING!
Empty all air from the tire, prior to loosening the bolt to split the rim.
Chain Adjustment
The chain will come adjusted from the factory. However, it may be necessary to
adjust the chain from time to time.
How Tight Should The Chain Be?
If the chain is skipping or jumping on the sprocket teeth, it is too loose and
should be adjusted.
‰ The chain should be tight enough not to skip, but have a little bit of play.
‰
Adjusting The Chain
1. Loosen the rear axle bolt but do not
remove the axle.
2. Tighten or loosen the rear axle tension
screws until you find the proper chain
tension. (Fig. 11) (About 1/8 of an inch
of play will be the proper tension for your
chain)
