Installing the Antenna

Route the loose end of the motorcycle’s antenna wire through the supplied antenna tube.

Insert the tube securely into the motorcycle’s tube holder.

Extend the transmitter’s antenna to its full length before driving the motorcycle. For maximum range, hold the transmitter with the antenna as high as possible and point it straight up.

Retract the transmitter’s antenna when you are finished driving the motorcycle.

Driving the Motorcycle

Turn the motorcycle and transmitter on. The LED lights on the transmitter.

Position the motorcycle straight and upright, holding the back of the seat and lifting the real wheel off the ground. Be sure to find a large open area with no cars or curbs to run the motorcycle.

Pull the transmitter’s throttle trigger to full speed and release the motorcycle. Warning: Keep your fingers away from the spinning tire.

When you finish driving, turn the motorcycle off first, and then turn the transmitter off. See Page 2 for Driving Tips.

Transmitter Controls

Throttle Trigger - Pull the trigger back toward the grip to move forward. Release the trigger to stop.

Throttle Trigger Brake - The throttle trigger is used to slow the motorcycle down also. Push the trigger forward away from the grip to apply the brake and reduce speed.

Steering Wheel - Steer the wheel left to go left. Steer the wheel right to go right. Release the wheel to go straight.

Cool Stunts

• When driving at a medium or high speed, the motorcycle may raise the front tire off the ground if you drive on a surface that has small bumps or obstacles.

• To fish tail the motorcycle, start making a turn at a low speed. Then, immediately change the direction of the turn and increase the speed.

• You can perform jumps with your motorcycle off ramps that are eight inches high or less.

Hint: When transporting your motorcycle, do not pick it up by the driver’s head. Use both hands to support the motorcycle, one holding the front fork and the other holding the rear of the seat.

Adjusting the Trim Controls

Adjust the trim controls to make the motorcycle drive properly.

Throttle Trim

Place your motorcycle on the display stand so the rear wheel does not touch the ground.

Turn the transmitter and motorcycle on.

If the rear wheel moves, turn the TRIM VOL F/R on the transmitter clockwise orcounter-clockwiseuntil the wheel stops.

Warning: Never use the throttle trim to make the motorcycle go.

Steering Trim

If your motorcycle does not drive in a straight line, turn the TRIM VOL ST left or right until your motorcycle moves in a straight line. Release the steering wheel before you make the adjustment.

Use only fresh batteries of the required size and recommended type.

Do not mix old and new batteries, different types of batteries (standard, alkaline, or rechargeable), or rechargeable batteries of different capacities.

If you do not plan to use the motorcycle for several days, remove the batteries from the transmitter and motorcycle. Batteries can leak chemicals that may destroy electronic parts.

When the transmitter’s range decreases, replace the battery. Alkaline batteries, rechargeable battery packs and battery pack chargers are available at your local RadioShack store.

Before you can use a 7.2V battery pack, you must charge it using a special battery charger. You can purchase the

battery charger from your local RadioShack store. Do not charge or recharge the battery pack while it is in the

motorcycle.

If your motorcycle runs slowly or does not move at all, recharge the battery pack and/or replace the AA batteries.

Overcharging the battery pack could damage it. After charging or recharging the battery pack, disconnect it from the charger.

Never leave dead or weak batteries in your motorcycle or transmitter.

Dispose of batteries promptly and properly. Do not burn or bury them.

For the safest driving conditions, find a large area with no traffic.

It is best to drive on pavement during your first outing. Move to a different terrain once you get comfortable driving on a smooth surface.

If you jump the motorcyle off ramps higher than eight inches, you could damage it.

A full speed impact to the front of the motorcycle may cause damage to the motorcycle.

Keep your motorcycle dry; if it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately.

Use and store your motorcycle in room temperature environments only.

Handle your motorcycle gently and carefully. Do not drop it.

Keep your motorcycle away from dust and dirt.

Wipe your motorcycle with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new.

Do not drive your motorcycle in the street, through puddles, in rain, sand or snow. Doing so can damage your motorcycle.

If your motorcycle gets stuck under an object, immediately turn the transmitter off and retrieve the vehicle.

Your motorcycle can reach higher speeds than most radiocontrolled cars. Avoid high-impactcollisions with people and objects.

If your motorcycle is not performing as it should, take it to your local RadioShack store for assistance. Modifying or tampering with the your motorcycle’s internal components can cause a malfunction and might invalidate its warranty and void your FCC authorization to operate it.

Your Honda CR250R Motocross Bike uses specific frequencies to operate. Motorcycles with different frequencies can race together; however, motorcycles with the same frequency cannot. The following chart shows the frequencies available for this motorcycle. If you buy more than one motorcycle and you plan to race them, be sure the sticker (showing the band number) on each motorcycle is a different color to ensure they use different frequencies.

Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.

Consult your local RadioShack store or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.

If you cannot eliminate the interference, the FCC requires that you stop using your radio-controlledvehicle.

Changes or modifications not expressly approved by RadioShack may cause interference and void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.

Your motorcycle runs well on hard, packed dirt, short grass and asphalt. Do not drive it on tile or carpet.

The Gyros stabilizer helps your motorcycle stay upright, just like a real motorcycle. If your motorcycle falls during driving, rotate the steering wheel in one direction and pull the trigger simultaneously. Then, rotate the steering wheel in the opposite direction. Release the steering once the motorcycle is upright again.

When you want to stop, it is best to turn the motorcycle into a skid while applying the brake.

The size of your turn depends on the speed of the motorcycle. For large turns, increase your speed before turning the steering wheel. For smaller turns, slow down before turning.

If your motorcycle wobbles during driving, slightly rotate the steering wheel to allow the motorcycle to stabilize and go straight.

Running your vehicle for long periods can generate a high heat level, which causes wear and tear on the motor. To keep the heat level down, rest your motorcycle for 20 minutes after every 10 minutes of continuous use.

When your motorcycle’s battery pack runs down, let the motorcycle cool for at least 10 minutes before you install a newly charged battery pack.

If your motorcycle does not respond to the transmitter, move closer to your motorcycle and try again. Obstructions such as fences and buildings may decrease the transmitter’s range.

If someone uses a CB nearby, it might interfere with the control of the motorcycle. If this happens, move the motorcycle away from the CB. You cannot operate your motorcycle near devices with transmitters that use the same

frequency as your motorcycle. Check to see which frequency you have.

If your motorcycle continues to run slowly after you have installed a newly recharged battery pack and/or AA batteries, check the wheels for lint, thread, hair and dust.

You can order replacement parts {drive belts, tires, and skids (balusters), etc.} for your motorcycle at www.radioshack.com. Use your supplied wrenches to remove and replace motorcycle parts.
