My TBR7 Assembly Instructions

The first item I looked for after unboxing the TBR7 (<- My Post) was a booklet, a sheet, or even a URL listing to a good set of TBR7 Assembly Instructions. I didn’t find any. With the knowledge gained through YouTube searches, Chinese Bike Owner Forum look-ups, and just plain luck, I was ready for the challenge. Not having the TBR7 Assembly Instructions, I substituted other Chinese motorcycle assembly instructions for mine. I found Hawk 250 is very similar, as long as you focus on the carburated model. Also, a great source was CSC Motorcycles’ Web Site. Their TT250 documentation is excellent, although I strongly feel the TT250 is higher quality(or quality control) than my TBR7. Regardless, I moved on.

My TBR7 Assembly Instructions I Followed(In My Head).

My intention is not to provide a detailed list of instructions, but to share my experiences with assembling my TBR7. Please read my blog for entertainment purposes only. My motorcycle is a carburated 2021 TBR7. My TBR7 can be very different from other people’s TBR7s since I found in forums, other owners have found more LED upgrades on their bikes. For example, LED bulbs in their headlight, for the same year as mine. I only have the regular incandescent. It seems that some Chinese bike importers added little ‘features’/’upgrades’ to set themselves apart from the other importers—just an observation. So, with that said, Plan to grow this list with how I worked around my challenges.

List of TaoTao TBR7 Assembles I Would Do Over:

  1. Installing The TBR7 Wheel (Front)
  2. Rear Brake Foot Pedal
  3. Exhaust – Planned
  4. Front Body Panel – Planned
  5. Chain Driver Proper Tension
  6. Lowering the front end
  7. TBR7 Kickstand Assembly

WARNING:  As I mentioned, your TBR7 might be different than mine, 2021. Your Hawk 250 might have the same features as my TBR7. The point is, the information here is NOT an actual ‘how-to”, but a history of “how-I-did-it.” For your entertainment purposes only and please only follow the manufacturer’s instructions(if you can find them) and seek assistance from a professional motorcycle shop(if you can find one that will service a cheap Chinese dual-sport motorcycle). Riding motorcycles can be very dangerous and made more dangerous with a motorcycle put together by a novice, especially one with no official instructions. You might not consider buying, riding, or owning these types of bikes; some view us as a subculture of weird-O’s having an unhealthy attraction to lower quality, possibly unsafe(depending on build, inspection, and assembly) motorcycles.
