The following information provided below is to help you get started with your new bike. It is not a training manual and does not guarantee any bike malfunctions. Make sure you keep up with normal maintenance for your pit bike just like you would a Honda, Yamaha or any other brand. As always, MotoBuys provides free technical support to all of our customers. Please contact us if you have any questions.
Below are a few tips to get you started.
- When you first get your bike make sure you go over every bolt on the bike to make sure that it is tight. We also recommend that you use locktite on all of the bolts. Make sure you check your bolts again after each of your first 3 rides minimum.
- When you first get your pit bike out of the crate or off the pallet (assembled bikes) it is important that you tighten the spokes. You will also need to re-check the spokes after every 2-3 rides. To tighten the spokes, from the valve stem, tighten every third spoke, with just a few turns each until you work your way all the way around the wheel. Repeat this process until all the spokes are completely tight.
- After your initial ride your chain is going to stretch. It is important to keep your chain tightened to the appropriate tension to avoid chain malfunction while riding. You will also want to check your chain every time before you go ride.
- On some of the bikes, the rear shock is adjustable by tightening and loosening your rear spring. You can do this by turning the two large main nuts on the top of the shock spring. There is also a set screw you can loosen to turn these two nuts.
- Only fill your gas tank with gas (91+ octane) !!! All our pit bikes require premium, unleaded gas. We do not recommend using high octane, 100 +, race gas.
- Always wear a DOT-compliant helmet, goggles, long sleeves, long pants, over-the-ankle boots, and gloves.
- Never ride on paved roads except to cross when done safely and permitted by law
- another vehicle could hit you. ATVs are designed to be operated off-highway.
- Never ride under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
- Never carry a passenger on a single-rider ATV, and no more than one passenger on an ATV specifically designed for two people.
- Ride an ATV that's right for your age.
- Supervise riders younger than 16; ATVs are not toys.
- Ride only on designated trails and at a safe speed.
This off-highway utility vehicle handles differently from other vehicles including cars and ATVS. Where INIURY OR DEATH can result if you do not follow these instructions:
- Read this manual and labels carefully and follow the operating procedures described.
- This vehicle is designed to carry the driver and one passenger. Never carry . passengers in the cargo bed. Always be sure the driver and passenger are wearing seat belts.
- Never give a ride to a passenger who is too small to reach and hold the handgrip on the enclosure. Always avoid operating the vehicle on any paved surfaces, including sidewalks, driveways, parking Lots, and streets.
- Never operate this vehicle in any public street, road, or highway, even a dirt or gravel one.
- Never operate this vehicle without wearing an approved motorcycle helmet that fits properly. You should also wear eye protection (goggles or a face shield), gloves, over-the-ankle boots, long-sleeved shirt or jacket, and long pants.
- Never consume alcohol or drugs before or while operating this vehicle.
- Never operate at speeds too fast for your skills or the conditions. Always go at a speed that is proper for the terrain, visibility, operating conditions, and your experience.

- Always inspect your vehicle each time you use it is in safe operating condition. Always follow the inspection and maintenance procedures and schedules described in this manual.
- Always keep hands, arms, feet, and legs inside the vehicle at all tinies during I operation. Keep your feet on the floorboard
- Never hold onto the enclosure except when using the handgrip inside the enclosure. otherwise, your hand could be injured if it is caught between the enclosure and an obstacle outside the vehicle. Always keep both hands on the steerinB wheel when driving.
- Never wrap your thumbs and fingers around the steering wheel. This is particularly important when driving in rough terrain. The front wheels will move right and left as they respond to the terrain, and this movement will be felt in the steering wheel. A sudden jolt could wrench the steering wheel around, and your thumbs or fingers could be injured if they are in the way of the steering wheel spokes.
- Always go slowly and be extra careful when operatinS on unfamiliar terrain. Always be alert to changing terrain conditions when driving the vehicle'
- Never operate on excessively rough, slippery, or loose terrain until you have learned and practiced the skills necessary to control the vehicle on such terrain. Always be especially cautious on these kinds of terrain.
- Never turn at excessive speed. Practice turning at slow speeds before attempting to turn at faster speeds. Do not attempt turns on steep inclines'
- Never operate the vehicle on hills that are too steep for it or for your abilities Go straight up and down hills where possible. Maximum slope angle:15
- Never operate on hills that are slippery or ones where you will not be able to see far enough ahead of you. Never go over the top of a hill at speed if you cannot see what is on the other side.
- Always follow proper procedures for going uphill. lf you lose momentum and cannot continue up a hill, back down the hill with the engine in reverse gear' Use engine braking to help you go slowly. lf necessary, use the brakes Sradually to help you go slowly.
- Always check terrain carefully before going down hills' Go as slowly as possible' Never go down a hill at high speed.
- Always check for obstacles before operating in a new area'
- Never operate the vehicle in fast flowing water or water deeper than the floorboards on this model. Remember that wet brakes may have reduced stopping ability. Test your brakes after leaving water. lf necessary, apply them several times to let friction dry out the linings.
- Always be sure these are no obstacles or people behind you when you operate in reverse. When it is safe to proceed in reverse, go slowly' Do not brake abruptly when carrying loads in the cargo bed'
- Always use the size and type of tire specified in this manual'
- Always maintain proper tire pressure as described in this manual' Never exceed the stated load capacity. cargo should be as far forward in the bed as possible, and distributed evenly from side to side. Be sure cargo is secured so that it cannot move around during operation. Reduce speed and follow instructions in thin manual for carrying cargo or pulling a trailer. Allow Sreater distance for braking'
You must inspect your UTV each time before riding to ensure it is in proper working order. If proper inspection is not done, severe injury or death could result.
Use the following checklist to verify your machine is in proper working order each time you ride.
ITEM/ INSPECTION PROCEDURE
- Tire - check condition and pressures.
- Battery - Check whether the connection is reliable, whether the terminal has protection
- All Brakes - check fluid level, check operation, adjustment (includes parking brake).
- Brake pedalCheck for correct brake pedal free play. If the brake pedal free play is incorrect, have an authorized dealer adjust it. Check the operation of the brake pedal. It should move smoothly and there should be a firm feeling when the brakes are applied. If not, have the vehicle inspected by your dealer.
- Brake fluid leakageCheck to see if any brake fluid is leaking out of the pipe joints or the brake fluid reservoir. Apply the brakes firmly for one minute. If there is any leakage, have the vehicle inspected by an authorized dealer.
- Check the brake fluid levelAdd fluid if necessary.
- Brake operationTest the brakes at slow speed after starting out to make sure they are working properly. If the brakes do not provide proper braking performance, inspect the brake system.
- Throttle - check for free operation, closing and freeplay.
Check to see that the accelerator pedal operates correctly. It must operate smoothly and fully spring back to the idle position when released.
Have an authorized dealer repair as necessary for proper operation.
- Headlight/Tailight/Brake light - check operation of all indicator lights and switches.
- Air Switch - check for proper function
- Wheels - check for tightness of wheel nuts and axle nuts; check those axle nuts are secured by cotter pins
Check balance/ damage/ runout. Have an authorized dealer repair/ replace if necessary.
Check bearing assemblies for looseness/damage. Have an authorized dealer replace if damaged.
- Air cleaner element -
- Steering - check for free operation noting any unusual looseness in any area.
Park on level ground. Turn the steering wheel right and left. Check for excessive free play, abnormal noises, or a rough feeling. Have an authorized dealer repair as necessary for proper operation.
- Loose parts - visually inspect vehicle for any damaged components or loose nuts/bolts or fasteners.
Always check the tightness of chassis fittings and fasteners before a ride. Take the vehicle to your dealer for correct tightening torque.
- Operator’s and passenger’s helmets, goggles and clothing.
- Seat belts - Check for proper operation and belt wear.
Make sure that both seat belts are not frayed or damaged. The seat belt must move smoothly when pulled out and retract on its own when released. The latch plate should click securely into the buckle and release when the release button is pushed firmly. Clean off any dirt or mud which could affect operation. Have an authorized dealer repair as necessary for proper operation.
Always wear clothing suite to the type of riding you are doing. UTV riding requires special protective clothing which will make you fell more comfortable and reduce chances of injury.
Your helmet is the most important piece of protective gear for safe riding. A helmet can prevent a severe head injury. Select an approved off-road motorcycle -type helmets that fits properly.
- Eye Protection
A pair of goggles or helmet face shield offer the best protection for your eyes.
- Gloves(off-road style)
A pair of strong over the calf type boots with heels, such as motocross boots.
To protect your body, long sleeves and pants should always be worn. Riding pants with kneepads, a jersey and shoulder pads provide the best protection.
Operating this vehicle without wearing an approved motorcycle helmet, eye protection, and protective clothing.
WHAT CAN HAPPEN
Operating without an approved motorcycle helmet increases your chances of a severe head injury or death in the event of an accident.
Operating without eye protection can result in an accident and increases your chances of a severe injury in the event of an accident.
HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
Always wear an approved motorcycle helmet that fits properly. You should also wear: eye protection (goggles or face shield), gloves, boots, long-sleeved shirt or jacket long pants.
First, turn on the gas and make sure the ignition is on for your bike. Pull out the kicker on your bike and find top dead center by feeling the compression increase. Turn on the choke, if it’s cold, and start kicking your bike until the motorcycle runs.
The action seems simple until you think about all the steps and what goes into them. We will break this process down into more detail for you now and give additional points to make kicking starting your bike easy.
Steps To Kick Start A Dirt Bike
This part of the how-to guide will lead you through the detailed process of how to kick start your bike. Note though, you may have to make a few adjustments based on the bike you ride. There are some nuances for each model and even the model year.
Step 1. Find neutral
Your first step in starting your bike with a kick start is finding neutral. New riders may find this tricky as neutral is the click between first and second gear.
To find neutral click the shifter down multiple times. Once you do this, try clicking the gear shifter up halfway in between first and second. Roll your bike back and forth about 6 inches to a foot.
If it does not roll, then you are not in neutral.
Pro-Tip: Sometimes the dirt bike will not always get to first gear even when you press the shifter down several times. I will click it down three or four times and then roll it before pressing the shifter down another few times. This helps ensure you get into first gear.
Exceptions To The Neutral Location On Dirt Bikes
Our dirt bikes that have neutral “at the bottom” of the gears. A normal dirt bike transmission looks like the following pattern.
Press Up Five Times Fifth Gear
Press Up Four Times Fourth Gear
Press up Three Times Third Gear
Press Up Twice Second Gear
Press Up Once First Gear
Shift down util the bike can roll Neutral
Why is finding neutral on your dirt bike important?
If you do not find neutral, you risk the bike lurching forward when you kick it over. It could pull a shoulder or arm muscle as you will not be expecting the bike to move.
Pro-Tip: You can create a backup to help prevent the bike from lurching forward. If you have a clutch on your bike, pull it in as you kick the bike over. NOTE this is not a replacement for making sure the bike is in neutral. This is extra insurance to prevent you from having the bike move as you kick it over.
Step 2. Pre-Kick Checklist
Without completing the pre-kick checklist your bike will not start. Make sure you complete each task.
- Turn on the Gas– Your bike needs gas to run, make sure it is on. You will find the petcock (on/off) usually on the left-hand side of your bike. The petcock will be in the on position when the lever is inline with the fuel hose coming out of the valve. It should also say on, but I have had a few that did not.
Pro-Tip: If the valve swings around 180 degrees so it looks like the valve has two settings with the lever being in line with the fuel line, you likely have a reserve setting. Make sure you check this out before you just turn it to one setting and go.
- Choke the dirt bike– If the weather is below 60 degrees, always choke your bike before the first kick. The choke will be a knob you can pull that makes starting your dirt bike on cold days easier.
Note though, the choke will look different and found in different positions for each dirt bike. If you are lucky enough to have a dirt bike with electronic fuel injection, you will skip this step. The computer makes the adjustments that a choke does.
- Turn on the ignition– This feature pertains to modern dirt bikes. Not every dirt bike has an ignition. If they made your bike after 2003 make sure you know if your bike needs a key. My 1993 CR250 does not have a key or ignition switch.
You need to make sure this is on because the coils will not send a spark if the ignition is not in the on position.
- Put your kickstand or center stand up. Do not ask me why this is important. Ok, I guess I have to tell you. Once I tried starting my RM 125 as a teenager while standing on the pegs. The kickstand was down, and I thought things would be ok as I kicked the bike over.
Long story short, I ended up losing my grip and my left foot slipped off the peg. I fell off the bike, and it fell on top of me.
Step 3. Find Top Dead Center
While finding top dead center is unnecessary, I find it helpful to know where the bike is in intake, compression, ignition, and exhaust. If you just start kicking your bike over, it can be more difficult to start.
By knowing where the stroke is, you can time when you need to give a little extra gas to start. This mainly applies to used bikes and older bikes.
I also feel like it builds momentum further into the kicking stroke as you press the kick starter down. As you get past the initial compression at the weak part of your kick, the momentum builds creating enough inertia to turn the crank over a few more times from the same kick.
This is not scientific by any means, but it is what I have noticed from riding dirt bikes for over 30 years.
Finding Top Dead Center On Dirt Bike Engine
Top dead center will be tough the first few times you look for it. The easiest way to find it is by slowly kicking your bike over and noticing the pattern of resistance and easy as the motor turns over.
The resistance you notice is the motor building compression. Right after the peak of compression the easy part of the cycle starts.
It is coming up on the last part of the compression when the motor is top dead center.
Give it time and slow down while starting your bike the next few times you go riding. You will see what I mean.
Pro-Tip: If your bike has a large displacement (anything greater than 350 cc’s) be extra careful. These dirt bikes are known to kick back and break legs. Look for a decompression valve. These provide relief on the compression stroke making the dirt bike easier to turn over.
Step 4. Start Kicking Over The Dirt Bike Motor
If you have been following the steps so far, you have already completed a few slow kicks.
Now you put some effort into it. Do not kick as hard as you can. Your foot can slip off and twist an ankle. Yep, I did this too, and I’ll save you the story.
Step 5. Repeat Steps 3 and 4.
Try completing steps 3 and 4 several times. If the bike does not start, you may have flooded the bike. This means there is too much fuel and not enough air to start the bike.
Pro-Tip: If you noticed the smell of gas you flooded the bike. Open the throttle and hold it wide open for 30 seconds. This may help. If not, you have a problem somewhere else. Checkout this article I wrote to help diagnose the issue.
Remember that by purchasing a vehicle online, you are responsible for performing the setup that a dealer would normally perform - such as putting on tires, hooking up the battery, checking the tightness of all nuts and bolts, changing oil, etc. Occasionally some units may need other routine items checked/adjusted such as adjusting the carburetor idle and mixture screws, checking to ensure wires are well connected, adjusting chain slack, and alignment if needed.
