INSTRUMENTS AND CONTROL FUNCTIONS
FUEL SYSTEM CONTROLS
Fuel Tank shut-off valve – Located on the bottom right side of the fuel tank. When open (down position), gasoline is allowed to flow from the fuel tank to the carburetor. Close this valve when storing or transporting your ROKON.
Choke lever – Located beneath the air filter housing, Choke function is used to start a cold engine and should not be operated while riding. To apply the choke, push the choke lever to the rear position until engine starts. Once engine is running the choke can be turned off by returning the lever to the forward position.
Carburetor fuel shut-off valve – Located on the right side of the bike below the choke lever. When open (forward position), gasoline is allowed to flow from the fuel line into the float bowl of the carburetor. Close this valve when storing or transporting your ROKON.
Throttle – Engine speed is increased by twisting the throttle grip on the right side of the handlebar counter-clockwise. When released, engine speed will return to idle.
BRAKE SYSTEM CONTROLS
Front Brake – The front brake lever is located on the right side of the handlebars. When brake pressure is applied the front brake will slow or stop the entire driveline. (See Safety Information page 7)
Rear Brake – Located on the left side of the handlebars. When brake pressure is applied the rear brake slows or stops the rear tire but allows the front driveline to rotate independently. (See Safety Information page 7)
SPEED RANGE CONTROL
Speed range selector knob – Located on the right side of the bike beneath the right side of the operator seat, this knob engages the desired speed range and allows you to select a neutral position. There are five positions for selecting speed ranges and neutral.
1st Gear (low range) Knob is pulled all the way out
Neutral Pos#1 In one position from 1st
2nd Gear (mid-range) Knob is in the middle position or two positions in from 1st
Neutral Pos#2 In three positions from 1st
3rd Gear (high range) knob is pushed all the way in
NOTICE the bike MUST be motionless and idling normally prior to selecting a speed range.
TIP The knob will sometimes feel stuck when you attempt to select a speed range, if this happens the gears must be synchronized. In order to do this, it is recommended that you rock the bike gently back and forth while applying pressure to the selector knob until it slides into the desired position.
WARNING ALWAYS ensure that your ROKON is in NEUTRAL prior to starting. Failure to do so can result in unintended movement upon starting.
ELECTRICAL SYSTEM CONTROLS
Key switch – The ignition key switch is located beneath the fuel tank on the left side of the bike. It has three positions, OFF, RUN, and START. In the OFF position the kill circuit is grounded and the engine will not run. The key can be removed from the bike in this position. In the RUN position, the electrical system is energized and ignition system is on. Optional accessories will be energized in this position. The start position is a momentary position that engages the electric starter and starts the engine.
NOTICE Do not rotate the key to this position while the engine is running.
Headlight switch/Kill Button – Located on the left side of the handlebars, the headlight switch turns the headlight and rear marker light on and off. There is also a momentary kill circuit button which can be used to quickly and easily shut the bike’s engine off. Hold kill button until engine stops completely. NOTICE Shutting off the engine in this manner will not turn off lights or optional accessories. Rotate key switch to OFF position when you are finished riding to prevent battery depletion.
Brake light switches – With key switch in the “Run” position, switches illuminate the brake light when either brake handle is squeezed.
