STEP 1: PROPER CLOTHING & PROTECTIVE GEAR The first step to safe riding is proper protection of the rider. Your student should always wear a helmet, eye protection, gloves, long pants, a long-sleeved shirt or jacket, and boots. Make sure your student is not wearing any loose-fitting clothes. Loose belts, scarves, etc., can get caught in moving parts and cause personal injury. Even in hot weather, make sure the student wears long pants and a long-sleeved shirt. These not only protect against abrasive injuries but also help reduce fatigue which comes from the loss of body heat caused by exposure to the wind.
STEP 2: FAMILIARIZATION WITH THE VEHICLE Your student should become completely familiar with the names and functions of all controls. Demonstrate operation of the controls if necessary. Ask the student to do such things as "Apply the brakes. Turn off the engine," etc. Practice this exercise until the student can operate all of the controls without hesitation and without looking at the controls. Review the instructions with your student until she/he knows all the items that should be checked. Give specific examples of things to look for.
STEP 3: STARTING OFF AND STOPPING To help your student develop confidence, she/he should PRACTICE FIRST WITH THE ENGINE OFF, as follows:
STEP 4: ADJUST THE SPEED LIMITER TO SLOW NOW. Next start the ATV's engine and have the student practice starting off, riding in a straight line and stopping with the vehicle under power. Walk alongside the ATV and hold the engine cutout switch cord or have the student ride back and forth between you and another supervising adult. Make sure your student:
STEP 5: TURNING: After your student has learned to ride the ATV in a straight line and can stop it at will, you should teach the student how to turn the vehicle. Explain the proper body movements for turning and let the student PRACTICE FIRST WITH THE ENGINE OFF as you push the vehicle from behind. When turning, watch to make sure your student:
STEP 6: PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER When your student has mastered the basic riding maneuvers in the previously listed steps, she/he should practice them all together. Instruct the student to perform various maneuvers such as turning right, turning left, stopping, etc. Vary the order of these maneuvers so the student will not anticipate what s/he will be asked to do next. Practice this exercise until you are confident that the rider has mastered all the basic maneuvers. Using this procedure will help the first-time rider learn the most basic riding techniques. To become a skilled rider, your student will need a great deal of practice and continuing instruction in addition to completing these introductory steps. After all the riding techniques have been mastered, you can adjust the throttle limiter to provide higher speed capabilities in keeping with the rider's skill and experience.
1. Assembly: After Vehicle Assembly, Do The Following:
B. Replace engine oil with a high grade blend (15-40w) or (10-40w)
C. Replace sparkplug with an appropriate new NGK plug. Part #CR6-HSA 25 point ATV/motorcycle system check: Fuel System
Dealers/Retail End Users: Following these Manufacturer’s warranty Service Items/Intervals will help to ensure smooth, efficient and fun operation of your vehicles.
NOTE: This warranty does not cover neglect, abuse, misuse or negligence or damaged parts from accidents or shipping. Warranty does not include all wearable parts including, but not limited to: brakes, tires, batteries and body parts.
Step 1: Oil is the Engine's Lifeblood ATV Racing Oil You may hear mechanics and wannabes alike claiming that oil changes are less important then ever thanks to tighter tolerances and advances in oil lubricants. While these claims may be true to a certain extent, break in is certainly not the time to experiment. Proper break-in of a new ATV engine is an essential aspect to the vehicle's longevity. The key to successful break-in is to ride the quad easy but not so mellow that the rings can’t seat within the cylinder. The best way to do this is to combine a high load with low RPM. In other words lug the engine a bit by riding smoothly in a higher gear then necessary as opposed to popping it into one gear and revving it out. The oil that comes inside your engine will be adequate for the first few hours of break in but conduct a thorough oil change immediately after. It’s not a bad idea to consider a synthetic blend even over a full synthetic. Make certain to run motorcycle or ATV specific oil blends as the yare designed to lubricate the clutch (this is known as a wet clutch) as well as the engine’s internals. Automotive oil and full synthetics may be adequate at lubing up the engine but usually lead to clutch slippage.
Step 2: Lube Away ATV Chain LubeSure your ATV was greased at all of the pivots before leaving the factory but this grease is designed to withstand overseas shipping and initial break-in operation. Asking it to endure for the life of the machine is simply looking for trouble. Not to mention that all it takes is a little contact with the water from a pressure washer to blast this lubrication away. It's always a good idea to check any and all exposed bearings and pivots (swing arm linkage for example) and to apply a thick slosh of quality waterproof grease on these areas BEFORE they show signs of compromised performance. The common mistake is to wait until bearings begin to squeal or drag before paying attention to them and by then it’s almost always too late.
Step 3: Chain Gang ATV ChainIt's quite normal for the quad's chain (shaft and belt drive units need not apply) to stretch a bit during those first few rides. However, just because a bit of additional slack is normal, it’s critical to check to make sure it hasn't become too loose. It's a good practice to get in the habit of keeping a small ruler in your toolbox for this specific purpose. This way, whenever you lube the chain, you can measure and jot down the amount of slack present. Your vehicle's owner’s manual will provide the proper range of movement expected before the chain will require tightening or replacement (depending on how many times you’ve tightened it before). If you find yourself in a situation where you can't access a ruler to measure the amount of slack, the rule of thumb is typically no more than two to three finger widths of vertical movement.
PLEASE READ THESE TIPS BEFORE RIDING YOUR NEW RIDE.
YOU MUST THE FOLLOWING !!!
1. MAKE SURE EVERY NUTS AND BOLTS ARE LOCK TIGHT (BLUE COLOR).
2. AFTER 4 TO 5 HOURS DRIVING YOU MUST CHANGE THE OIL TO 10 W 40.
3. MUST INSPECT EVERYTHING BEFORE EACH RIDE.
4. CHECK TIRE PRESSURE.
5. DO NOT EXCEED ITS WEIGHT LIMIT.
6. DO NOT EXCEED ITS SPEED LIMIT.
7. BRAKE IN YOUR ATV FOR 2 WEEKS (THROTTLE VERY SLOW)
8. USE HIGHER OCTANE GAS 93
9. CHANGE YOUR REVERSE GEAR WHILE COMING TO A COMPLETE STOP.
10. ADDITION TO THESE TIPS PLEASE READ YOUR OWNER MANUAL.

How to assemble + start the Kids atv for the first time
1) Hook up battery, and assemble the rest of the unit.
2) FOR WHEEL ASSEMBLY, the wheel goes on first, then the wheel spacer (kinda pushes up underneath the hub), then flange washer, then the castle nut (finger tight), then tighten the nut down further until you can insert the cotter pin through the hole in the castle nut and the hole in the axle, Insert cotter pin.
3) use dipstick to make sure that there is enough engine oil. Mini atv use regular oil 10W30. (110cc atv=has sight glass, no dip stick). Once it is broke in, after about an hour of use, use 10w30 synthetic.
4) Loosen the bottom screw on the bottom of the carburetor to relieve the extra gas pressure. It allows the air to escape so that the gas can flow in and take its place . Then tighten this screw back up. This can often be the problem on 20% of the mini atvs that will not start.
5) do not use remote control for starting the first time. In fact we recommend that you never use the remote to start it because it drains the battery (also it takes off, idle speed makes it move when no one is on it).
6) Put gas in the gas tank. Use high 93 octane gasoline. Jets in the carb jets are very small and lower grade gasoline will clog them..
7) Make sure the throttle cable is pushed all the way into the top of the black rubber holder at the very top of the carburetor. Nut on top of the carburetor needs to be screwed down all the way down.
8) Turn on gas petcock (located on right side of carburetor, turn clockwise to on-it allows gas to fill the gas lines and the bottom of the carburator). Some models- this is not necessary because there is no gas shutoff valve=petcock.
9) Put the key in the off position, then on the remote push lock and then unlock, then push lock and then unlock a second time.
