SUPPORT / INSTALLATION GUIDE
1 - OVERVIEW
IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING 750W Mamba Sahara
750W Mamba Sahara is locked to 250W of power and 25 km / h speed out of the box. For off-road use, you can change the power to 500W (By changing the bike’s assist level from 1 to 3) or to 750W (By changing the bike’s assist level from 3 to 5). You can also change the max speed as well, for off-road use. Please refer to step 12 of the assembly instructions for more detail.
IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING THE REAR RACK
Rear rack max load is 7kg. If the max load exceeds 7kg, the rear carrier could get bent or broken. In no circumstance should a child seat be installed on the rear rack.
IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING THE BATTERY SWITCH
There is an on/off switch on the battery. Once you receive the bike, please turn the switch on. This switch should always remain on. Please do not use this switch to turn on and off your bike. The bike should be turned on and off using the power button on the LCD’s control panel.
HOW TO USE THIS MANUAL
This manual contains several chapters and each chapter contains several steps. Each step has a descriptive paragraph and some photos. By clicking on each photo, you can view it in full size. This manual explains the assembly instructions mainly. Therefore please also read the other manual that comes with the bike and includes information regarding the operation, maintenance, safety measurements, etc.
IMPORTANT: For the assembly steps, please first completely read a step and view all the related photos and then proceed with performing that step. If you face any difficulties during the assembly, please contact us via the website’s live chat.
If there are any mistakes in the manual or any information should be added or revised for a better assembly experience, please let us know via the live chat.
2 - OPENING THE BOX
Step 1: Cut the plastic straps of the bike carton
Step 2: Open the carton door and take care so that the staples do not cut you. Remove the protective foam and the small accessories box.
Step 3: Lay the carton on the floor and then pull the bike out of the carton (Preferably with someone’s help).
It is better to put a mat in front of the carton so that the bike frame does not get scratched. Then put the bike on a standing position.
IMPORTANT: Please note until the front wheel is assembled, the bike is not stable on a standing position.
So please lean it against a wall or have someone hold the bike until the front wheel assembly step is done (when you will be able to put the bike on the kickstand).
3- REMOVING PROTECTIVE MATERIAL
Step 1: Remove all protective material from the bike.
IMPORTANT: Please take care so that the bike frame does not get scratched.
Step 2: Remove plastic protectors from both sides of the front wheel.
Step 3: Remove the steel fork protector from the front fork by loosening the nuts on both sides.
Before safety protector is removed
After safety protector is removed
Step 4: Open the accessories box, which includes the adapter, basic assembly tools, pedals, rear footrests, rear reflector, bike manual and LCD manual. After all protective materials are removed, your bike should look the same as the photo below.
4- FRONT LIGHT ASSEMBLY
Step 1: Loosen the front light’s right bracket by holding the nut with a wrench and turning the bolt by an Allen key anti-clockwise, put the protector inside. Do the same on the left bracket.
Step 2: Remove the nut and the washer located in the front of the right bracket. The bracket should look the same as the second photo below, after the washer and the nut is removed. Do the same on the left bracket.
Step 3: Install the front light as shown in the photos below by using a wrench and an Allen key. After the front light is tightened to the brackets, please adjust the angle of the light so it faces forward.
NOTE: If the front light’s cable is passed in between the front forks (and not from one side of the fork), then you need to unplug the front light cable from the connection point, assemble the light and then reconnect the connection. Before reconnecting the light cable ensure the two sides of the connection are aligned otherwise, the pins might get bent.
5-FRONT MUDGUARD ASSEMBLY
Step 1: Remove the 4 bolts from the bike’s forks and install the mudguard in such a way that the shorter side of the mudguard is in front of the forks and the longer side is behind the forks. Now tighten the 4 bolts (2 on each side).
6- FRONT WHEEL ASSEMBLY
Step 1: Remove the washer and the nut from both sides of the front wheel hub.
Step 2: Please note the disk rotor should go in the tiny space between the brake pads.
IMPORTANT: Please note this step is very sensitive and if done wrong, the brake pads or the disk rotor can be damaged.
Step 3: Ask someone to hold the front tyre and then lift the bike and carefully lower the forks until the disk brake rotor is inserted between the brake pads and the axel fits nicely in the front forks.
Step 4: Insert the locking washer to the axel on the right and
ensure it is locked.
Step 5: Please note the washer tap should be inserted in the hole on the fork so that it locks. Then hand tighten the nut. Do the same steps on the left.
Step 6: Now tighten the nuts on both sides as shown in photos. Please note in this step, you should tighten the nut on one side a bit and then tighten the other nut a bit and repeat the process until both nuts are fully tightened. While tightening the nuts, you should try to keep the tyre centred between the forks. If after the nuts are tightened, the tyre is leaning to one side more, please loosen both nuts and try again.
IMPORTANT: In this step the bike should not be on the kickstand as centring the tyre between the forks while the bike is on kickstand is difficult.
IMPORTANT: In this step the bike should be on the wheels (not upside down on the handlebars). The weight of the bike helps the tyre’s axel be fully inserted into the fork dropouts and makes the tyre be centred between the forks easier.
7- PEDALS ASSEMBLY
IMPORTANT: This step is sensitive and if done wrong, the threads on the pedal or the crank might get stripped. You should tighten the pedals by hand as much as possible and then fully tighten them by using a wrench.
IMPORTANT: Please ensure the pedals are fully tightened otherwise pedals can gradually get loosen and strip the crank arm threads.
Tighten the right pedal to the right crank by turning it clock wise by hand (photo 1). You should be able to tighten the pedal almost all the way down by your hand.
Step 2: Tighten the left pedal to the left crank by turning it anti-clockwise by hand. You should be able to tighten the pedal almost all the way down by your hand.
Step 3: Tighten both pedals fully by using a wrench. Please ensure both pedals are fully tightened.
8- FOOTREST ASSEMBLY
Remove the 2 bolts shown in the first photo below. Install the right footrest in such a way that the curved side of the footrest is facing forward so that it folds backward (photo 2). Do the same on the other side.
9- PUMPING THE TYRES
Pump front and rear tyres. Tyre pressure should be in the range specified on the tyre.
IMPORTANT: While pumping the tyres, stop a few times and ensure the tyre bead has seated properly all the way around the rim. If the bead starts moving up anywhere, deflate a bit, squeeze and push the bead to get it even all around and continue inflating. If any part of the tube comes out of the rim during tyre inflation, it could lead to tube burst. In a properly seated tire, the bead line — the thin line moulded low on each sidewall — will be just above the rim all the way around on both sides.
10. Front handlebar assembly
Remove all the screws and put the handlebar on the centre of the stem.
Step 2: Tighten all the 4 screws and connect the cables by the same colour.
11- INSTALL THE BATTERY
Open the battery box and take the key from the box as well.
Step 2: Slide the battery into the battery rail under the seat, and make sure the battery is locked.
12- OPERATING THE BIKE
IMPORTANT: The laws around the use of electric bikes on public lands, roads and areas vary from state to state. We recommend you always check your local council and road traffic laws prior to using a bike to ensure you are aware of any restrictions that may affect the use of motorised vehicles. Always use appropriate protective riding equipment such as an approved helmet and suitable clothing.
Step 1: TURNING ON AND RIDING THE BIKE
Press and hold the power button until the bike’s LCD turns on (photo 1).
Then by pressing the ‘+’ button, you can increase the pedal assist level from 1 to 5.
After setting the pedal assist level, you can start riding the bike.
It is suggested to always start your ride at pedal assist level 1 and then gradually increase it, if needed.
