How to take care of your new Kuberg bike!

Congratulations on your new Kuberg electric bike! Taking good care of your electric bike will help ensure its longevity and optimal performance. Here are some general tips for maintaining your Kuberg electric bike:

Read the Manual:

    • Always start by reading the user manual provided by Kuberg. This will give you specific information about your bike's features, recommended maintenance, and safety guidelines.
  • Charging:
      • Always follow these steps when charging your Kuberg Cross.
    1. Make sure your Kuberg Cross is turned off.
    2. Make sure the electricity cable is plugged into the charger.
    3. Connect your charger to an electrical outlet (AC).
    4. Connect the charger cable to the battery connector on your Kuberg Cross
    • Avoid overcharging, as this can reduce battery life. Most modern electric bikes have built-in protection to prevent overcharging, but it's still a good practice to unplug the charger once the battery is fully charged.
  • Battery use Care and maintenance:
        • For the proper use, maintenance and storage of the battery, it is critically important that you follow and understand the instructions in this manual. 
        • If you have any questions about the battery or its usage, please do not hesitate to contact the KUBERG Customer Service Department. 
        • The warranty will be void if this battery is not used, charged, and stored properly. This battery should not be used with any other vehicle or appliance. Using this battery with any other product will void the warranty and may lead to severe injury or death and/or property damage.
        • A battery management system (BMS) monitors cell voltages, currents, temperatures, etc. The BMS will keep the motorcycle safe if there is an error on the battery module. KUBERG Ranger must always be parked away from anything flammable 
        • The distance between the parked vehicle and any flammable object should be at least 3 meters (10ft.) 
        • NEVER SHORT-CIRCUIT THE DISCHARGE TERMINALS OF THE BATTERY. A short circuit will damage the battery and may cause a fire resulting in severe injury or death, and/or damage to property. 
        • Never mechanically manipulate the battery, never open the battery pack and do not puncture the battery cover or the battery itself. 
        • Keep the battery away from excessive heat and/or open flames. Avoid long-term exposure to direct rays from the sun. 
        • Protect the battery from water or other moisture. If the battery becomes wet from rain during use, dry as soon as possible. Remove the battery from the motorcycle before washing. 
        • Never expose it to intense physical shock or severe vibration, To avoid damage to the battery
  • Inspect Regularly:
      • Inspect the tires for proper inflation and any signs of wear. Keep them inflated to the recommended pressure.
      • Check the brakes regularly to ensure they are functioning correctly, let’s dive into how to maintain the Hydraulic disc brakes:

    Maintaining your bike's hydraulic disc brakes might sound like a daunting task, but with the right tools and a bit of know-how, it's a straightforward process that ensures optimal performance. Let's break down the key components of your hydraulic disc brakes and explore some tips for keeping them in top shape.

  • Rotors: Rotors play a crucial role in slowing your bike down, and while they don't require frequent maintenance, occasional checks can keep them in good condition. Use a dedicated rotor-truing tool, such as the Feedback Sports Rotor Truing Fork, to straighten any warping caused by heating and cooling during braking.
  • Calipers: Inspect your brake calipers regularly, focusing on the brake pads that reside within. Pull them out periodically for inspection. If your brake pads rub or if you've changed wheels, use a tool like Hayes' Feel'r Brake Alignment Tool to center the caliper over the rotor.

  • Hoses: Check your brake hoses for damage, especially at stress points like where they enter or exit the frame. If you notice any kinks, reroute the hoses to avoid potential issues. Invest in a quality hose cutting tool, like the Park Tool HBT-1, for clean and precise hose cuts.
  • Master Cylinder: The master cylinder, located in the brake lever assembly, is the heart of your hydraulic braking system. For routine maintenance, bleeding the system is crucial to replace old brake fluid with new fluid. Ensure you have the correct hydraulic fluid for your system (DOT fluid or mineral oil) and use a brand-specific bleed kit for the best results.
  • Bleeding Your Brakes: Follow a general bleeding process: open the system, attach a syringe to the caliper, force fluid through the system, and catch the old fluid in a bottle. Close the system once no air bubbles are present, and replace the bleed screw. For specific instructions, consult your brake manufacturer's website or documentation.
  • Remember to wear an apron, gloves, and protective glasses during the bleed procedure, and remove the wheels to avoid contaminating the rotors. With these simple steps, you can keep your hydraulic disc brakes performing at their best, ensuring a safe and enjoyable riding experience.

  • Clean Your Bike:
        • Regularly clean your bike, but avoid using a high-pressure hose on electrical components.
        • Use a mild detergent and a soft brush or cloth to clean the frame, wheels, and other components.
  • Protect Electrical Components:
        • Avoid exposing the electrical components to water or moisture. If your bike gets wet, dry it thoroughly before use.
  • Software Updates:
  • Professional Servicing:
        • If you're not comfortable with maintenance tasks, consider taking your bike to any of the person who knows doing that.
      • Riding instructions & safety tips (novice riders) 
      • First ride (novice riders) Stand astride the motorcycle and locate the controls while the motorcycle is switched OFF. After you understand the controls and are comfortable with them, it’s time for the first ride. For this, make sure you are dressed correctly in suitable safety gear. Boots, gloves, helmets, and eye protection are necessary. The area for riding must be flat, open, and safe, with no obstacles of any kind. The motorcycle must be set up correctly, with the speed and torque tuned to a slow setting. 
      • 1. Ensure the power is turned OFF.
      • 2. Sit down on the motorcycle, keep your feet on the ground and move the motorcycle from side to side, forward and back, to get comfortable with the handlebar position and weight distribution.
      • 3. Switch the motorcycle ON by switching the power switch to the ON position (magnetic kill switch).
      • 4.  Before twisting the throttle, you should have one foot on the ground and the other one on the corresponding side of the foot rail.
      • 5. Twist the throttle smoothly and slowly and set off.
      • 6.  Once comfortable, lift both your feet onto the foot rail as you ride.
      • 7. Once stopped, set the power switch to the OFF position by unpluging the magnetic kill switch. 


      • Learning to stand up 
      • Once the basics are mastered, the speed and torque settings can be switched to faster and more powerful settings, step by step, to match the improving skills of the rider. Before you get going too quickly, it’s a good idea to learn to ride the motorcycle ‘correctly’. This means changing the riding position and in control. Learning to change the riding position is difficult if a rider does not have good throttle control. While the speed setting is set to low, the rider must learn to rotate his/her wrist ‘around’ the throttle so that when he/she moves forward or backward, the wrist is in the correct position. As the power and torque settings get higher, the ‘dead zone’ in the throttle diminishes, so it becomes easier to stand up and work the throttle.
  • Correct riding technique 
    • Learning the correct riding techniques will prepare the rider for all forms of riding that come later. The rider needs to learn to control the motorcycle at slow speeds and use the correct technique to execute tight turns. The natural approach of many riders is to turn the handlebars but this is not a correct riding technique. The correct technique is to lean and use so-called counter-steering. Counter-steering is turning the handlebars in the opposite direction as the rear wheel intends to travel outwards of the corner (over-steering). This will cause the motorcycle to lean and turn in the desired direction. Counter-steering needs to be taught slowly and smoothly, sudden movements of the handlebars may cause an accident. If tight turns are mastered correctly, many other skills will follow naturally.
