Some assembly may be required such as tightening nuts and bolts, adjusting the chain, installing the pedals, storage box, tightening handlebars and installation and tightening of the front or rear wheels. For your own safety and before any operation you should ensure that all nuts and bolts are tightened and all electrics and mechanics are operable such as the headlights/tail lights, signal lights, horn, speedometer, and brakes. You will also be required to test the air pressure in the tires and to fully charge the batteries before using your ebike.
The chain will stretch over time and you should routinely check it and make proper adjustments when needed. We are not responsible for chains that may come off during operation and the damage they may cause. We are not responsible for small scratches, dings, small dents and other minor problems. Most scratches can be fixed with touch up paint that can be purchased at your local paint store.
Typical Assembly Instructions for a X63/73 Ebike
In under 1 hour
Anyone with modest mechanical skills and a few simple tools can assemble a Dragon Ebike in under an hour. I
assembled my first bike in under 30 minutes.
– medium Phillips screwdriver
– 10 mm wrench
– 12 mm wrench
– 15 mm wrench
– knife not shown
Lean the carton against something solid and open the carton by cutting down the corners; fold down
the front of the box. There are large Styrofoam ‘cubes’ that do not contain anything – they simply help stabilize and protect the bike during shipping.
Prepare for assembly by positioning the bike on its stand and one of the Styrofoam packing blocks as shown below.
Step #2 Install the front wheel and brake assembly.
First, unwrap the front wheel and remove the wheel nuts and washers. The brake assembly slides onto the front axle. The assembly is already connected
to the bike by its cable.
Next, place the spacer on the axle on the side away from the brake assembly, then slide the axle into the forks.
As you slide the axle onto the forks, make sure that the slot on the brake casting slides over the pin in the inside of the left fork (‘right’ and ‘left’ are from the perspective of sitting on the bike, facing forward. This picture is looking at the left fork from above.
Finally, the washers with the ‘tongues’ go on first, one on each side. The tongues fit into the holes on the forks. The round washers go on next, then the nuts. Tighten securely and reinstall the plastic caps.
Step #3 Straighten the handlebars
Open the access panel on the handlebars.
Loosen the retaining nut so that the handlebars can be positioned square to the front wheel, then retighten the nut securely so that the handlebars do not slip. Reinstall the access panel.
Step #4 Connect the battery
Use the key to unlock the seat. Raise the seat and then lift the battery enough so that you can plug in the connector. Lock the connector to the battery with the retainer clip. Lower the battery back into its cradle and close the seat.
Step #5 Install the pedals
Unwrap, unlock and open the rear storage pod. This contains the pedals, mirrors and the hardware to attach the storage pod to the bike.
Start threading the pedals by hand to make sure you do not cross-thread them. Note that the left pedal is reverse-threaded. Tighten with a wrench.
Step #6 Install the rear storage pod.
Remove the nuts and bolts from the rear mounting bracket. Position the rubber strips on top of the mounting bracket, then position the pod on the rubber strips selecting the position that allows four of the holes in the base of the pod to align with the holes in the rubber and the mounting bracket. The metal straps go inside the pod, then the bolts go through the metal strips, the pod itself, the rubber strips and the mounting bracket. Install the nuts
Step #7 Install the mirrors
CONGRATULATIONS – YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE ASSEMBLY OF YOUR
Before riding your bike, read the manual. Test all lights. Recheck the tightness of all nuts,
bolts and fasteners. Test the brakes and adjust (if necessary).
Remember to obey all local laws and regulations.
