Bike Kit Customization

After you have read and printed your Installation Instructions, additional customization maybe required for your bicycle kit. If you received a printed manual with additional parts, the customized modification instructions are listed on the last page.

*** NEVER FORCE or MODIFY assembly instructions. All motorized bike kits come complete with everything (beside the tools) to build. If you are unsure about something, please contact us IMMEDIATELY. Forcing or modifying these instructions may cause damage and danger to your safety. Please do not FORCE or MODIFY these instructions, contact us.

1. Bobber Bike Kit: 2 leather straps (1 short, 1 long)

The leather straps will replace both of the gas tank mounts because of the over sizes top tube of the bike. Measure & drill holes in the leather & mount it like the metal one that comes with it. It’s very easy.

– Please See “Step 9″ for Wiring modification, which applies to all bike kits.

2. Gibson Bike Kits: leather strap & offset intake manifold

The leather strap will replace one of the gas tank mounts on the thickest part of the frame. Measure & drill holes & mount it like the metal one that comes with it.

The offset intake manifold will replace the shorter one that is on the rear of your engine. It’s needed to fit the carburetor on the engine on this shaped bike frame.

3. Mongoose Mountain Bike Kit: 4 long studs

The set of 4 studs are to replace the ones in the engine mounts if they happen to be too short. They are usually long enough, but sometimes they aren’t so I include these just in case.

4. The Patriot Motorized Bike Kit: 2 leather straps and mounting block

Mounting the Engine –
In order to mount the engine solidly on this stretch-frame bike you will have to use an extra spacing block.
1. First, unscrew the front mounting studs from the engine.
2. Then, assemble the spacing block with the front mounting plate as shown in the pictures. The 2 longer 6mm bolts, washers & lock washers will attach this assembly to the front of the engine – make sure the 2 wider holes in the plate are upward when attaching. It is a good idea to use loctite here as well.

Rear Mount –
1. When you’re ready to mount the engine the rear mount gets put on with the mounting bracket while the front plate mount rests on the downtube.
2. Put the u-bolt up, around the downtube & through the set of wider holes in the plate. Then secure each side with washer, lock washer & nut.

Gas Tank Mounting –
The gas tank will also require a little different mounting technique.
1. Gently bend the tanks studs just a few millimeters apart (so they are sticking out wider). Then take the 2 short leather straps and punch or drill a small hole on ONLY one side of each one (just big enough to fit a tank stud through).
2. Put each strap on a stud on the front & rear (same side, left or right) & secure it with washer, lock washer & nut. Only turn the nut a few turns – you’ll tighten it up when all 4 are on.
Measuring the leather strap –
1. Take the leather strap and measure to where it will meet the opposite stud by going down, under the top tube.
2. Make where your other holes should be & drill/punch them. Then trim away excess leather from the ends. You should leave 1/2″ of leather past each hole.
3. After the straps each have 2 holes & are trimmed, you can use them to mount the tank.

5. Rider Bike Kits (Knight Rider, Red Rider): special instruction on rear sprocket

Installation of the rear sprocket. You must attach the large rear sprocket to the wheel with the dish side facing out. This means that the teeth will end up farther away from the hub rather than closer. This will give your chain enough room to clear the tire.

– Please See “Step 9″ for Wiring modification, which applies to all bike kits.

6. Stealth Bike Kit: 2 leather straps

The leather straps will replace the gas tank mounts on the thick part of the frame’s top tube. Measure the straps with the tank on top of the frame & drill holes in leather. Then mount the tank with the straps, washers & nuts, front mounts first – then rear.

– Please See “Step 9″ for Wiring modification, which applies to all bike kits.

*** STEP 9, Wiring Modification (applies to ALL BIKE KITS)

Blue-to-Blue
Black-to-Black
White (if it exists) DO NOT USE. It was designed for a light, but it creates problems when being used. CAP or TAPE it off. DO NOT ALLOW IT TO COME IN CONTACT WITH METAL when the engine is running.

*** If the White Wire exists, but does not have an open end. Leave alone, do not cut free from other wires.

Kill Switch Wiring:
One – to blues
One – to blacks
It doesn’t matter which one.

Please let us know if you are unsure about any step during your project, even it was not listed on this page. Simply stop what you are doing, log on to our website and contact us. Guessing, forcing or manipulating parts without instruction is extremely dangerous, build with care.
