There will be a range of Technical videos available on our website soon, which may be useful if you are carrying out a repair or upgrade. Below are answers to most common questions.
How long do the batteries last?
Run time depends on many factors, but as a rule of thumb we say between 1 and 2 hours. However, for ‘Trials’ riding by beginners set to half speed, we’ve had a single set of batteries last for 4+ hours of stop-start riding.
For normal Trials riding in the back yard or at an event, perhaps 2-3 hours. It’s difficult to be precise, as the batteries generally outlast the kids! For full-throttle Motocross riding without stopping, run time comes down to 30-40 minutes.
There are many factors that determine run time; the weight of the rider, the terrain, and type of riding. We have purposely designed these machines around inexpensive sealed lead acid batteries that can be switched out in less than a minute. Having a backup set makes perfect sense in many riding situations.
How long to recharge?
From being fully discharged, our standard rate charger will take 4-5 hours to fully recharge the batteries. The charger is simply plugged into the charge port on the bike, and that’s it! If you’re at an all weekend event with no electricity, you can plug the charger into an inverter and charge from your car battery to keep them topped up, or straight from a generator.
Can I compete on them?
Yes. All our bikes we import are designed and engineered for competition use however we would recommend that you verify with your local club or state controlling body that your bike is eligible to compete on.
Are spare parts available
Yes. All parts are stocked. Check the parts section for more details. Some of our dealers also stock a range of parts. International orders can be fullfilled by the many importers around the world.
Can I fit Trainer wheels to them?
Yes. We would suggest that it is better if your child can balance a push bike before introducing them to the concept of a throttle. However there have been riders as young as 18 months old riding with training wheels. Standard (14mm axle) training wheels sets are available from most good cycle shops.
Where are the bikes made?
All bikes are designed, engineered and tested in the either Spain, France or the Czech Republic. The bikes are made in state of the art manufacturing facilities in these countries with full CE approval and strict quality controls and testing. All brands are supported by either a 2 year or a one year factory warranty, with spare parts being stocked here in Australia. Please check individual bike pages for warranty status.
