control. remember, take your time and be patient while going through the

first, open the box and remove all contents. check to see
that everything is included before proceeding. items that should be in the box
are as follows:
plunger assembly (handlebar clamp& foot pegs should already
handlebar assembly (grips & pad should be already installed)
note: once you have confirmed that all the parts are present
you may continue with the assembly.
step 1.) remove the 4 screws
(labeled �a� - fig.1) in the clamp for the handlebars using the provided hex
step 2.) mount the handlebar
centered in the clamp with the sweep of the bars bending back towards the user.
step 3.) align the handlebars to
your preference and then replace the 4 bolts in the handlebar clamp. tighten
the 4 bolts lightly and evenly with the wrench provided and then make sure they
are tightened completely to a torque of 65 in./lbs.
you will need a good quality torque wrench capable of accurately reading
inch/pounds of force to do this.
step 4.) check that the handlebars
are in the same alignment as the foot pegs. if they are not then you will need
to loosen the 2 screws (labeled �b�- fig. 2) at the back of the handlebar clamp
and turn the clamp assembly into alignment. once this has been completed
retighten the 2 handlebar clamp screws to a torque of 65 in./lbs.
step 5.) be sure that the footpegs
are seated as far down as they will go and on the lip at the bottom of the
plunger. tighten the 2 screws (labeled �c� - fig. 3) in the footpegs to a
torque of 65 in./lbs.
step 6.) test the motostik
by using it carefully for only a few bounces at a time to determine if all feels
step 7.) after 20
minutes of use stop and retighten all bolts as described previously in
from this point on after every 4 hours of operation stop
and check the tightness of all bolts as described previously in this manual.
note: sizing/fitment info: in some cases the end user
may want to make the handlebars narrower for a better fit. this can be achieved
by first removing the grips and then using a good quality pipe cutter or by
very carefully sawing off the ends of the bar to the desired length. always be
sure to file or remove any sharp edges or burrs before reinstalling the grips.
warning! � always use a very high quality �grip glue�
when installing grips onto the handlebar. grip-glue can be found and purchased
at most motorcycle dealerships.
once the owner�s manual has been read and completely
understood, the motostik
has been properly assembled and all screws have been double-checked for
tightness, you can ready yourself to use your motostik. always wear full protective safety
gear and an approved helmet when using your motostik � never operate a motostik
without the use of proper safety gear (see the �important safeguards� section
of this manual)!
some tips to get you started:
the tension knob completely by turning it counter-clockwise until it
stops; this will soften the spring rate.
operate on a smooth, level, and dry surface with plenty of traction.
- have a
person (a �spotter�) available to assist you in your learning curve.
- do not
operate on soft terrain such as dirt or sand.
use both feet and hands when operating this device.
gloves and always wear appropriate footwear like high-top sneakers.
- if you
feel the motostik
�bottoming� (the plunger spring compressing to it�s
maximum) turn the tension knob clockwise until this feeling goes away.
your new motostik
may require a short �break-in� period. when you first use this product it may
feel a bit sticky or tight. this is due to the fact that the bearings on the
slider system are very precisely fitted and may need a certain amount of time
