2 Check Safety Warnings to learn more about your Kit and how to care for it.

  • Fully charge before first use.

    After receiving your kit, before fitting to your bike or doing anything else, fully charge the Power Pack for 3 hours (25 Mile) or 6 hours (50 Mile). You can charge it with the charger provided.

  • Never leave on charge.

    The power pack is perfectly safe for home use, but the charger and battery will naturally heat up gradually when it is plugged in. Avoid leaving on charge for longer than necessary as extended periods left on charge lead to unnecessary over-heating of the battery and charger which can degrade the product and present a slightly increased safety risk.

  • Hear the “Click” when attaching the Power Pack to the Handlebar Mount.

    Make sure that the Power Pack clicks into place when attaching onto the handlebar mount. If you don’t hear the click, give it a firm push – the power pack must be fully pressed down on the mount to ensure correct operation.

  • Tighten up before riding.

    Whether it’s your first ride, or your hundredth ride, please ensure all nuts, screws and bolts are tight before taking off on the road. If for instance, the wheel nuts are loose this can present a small risk of the motor wheel coming loose during use. This also applies to you wheel spokes, check them regularly (every 100km) and tighten them back up if loose to ensure the wheel remains true.
