We've got your back! FatCats are designed to be user-friendly when it comes to routine upkeep. We totally get that not everyone is a grease monkey, so fear not! In our Facebook Owners Group, we've compiled a treasure trove of 'how-to' guides to walk you through the nitty-gritty of maintenance tasks. Plus, the trusty old owner's manual covers all the regular maintenance stuff, making it a handy reference.

If you'd rather let the pros handle it, that's cool too! Small engine mechanics are usually more than capable of taking care of tasks like changing the oil or giving the carburetor a good clean. So, there's always help available if you need it.

Now, let's talk spare parts. We know that's often a concern for riders. Good news here as well! Some parts like wheel bearings, jackshaft bearings, and steering stem bearings are pretty standard sizes. That means they won't break the bank when you need replacements, and you can easily source them from bearing suppliers.

Even better, most of the bolts on FatCats are standard sizes too, so you won't be stuck searching high and low for obscure hardware. That's a win for your wallet and your peace of mind.

For those unique-to-FatCats parts, we've got more good news! We've heard back from many happy customers who were pleasantly surprised by how reasonable the costs for replacement parts turned out to be. So, while FatCats are loads of fun to ride, they won't break the bank to keep in tip-top shape.

If you have any more questions or need further assistance, feel free to reach out anytime. We're here to ensure your FatCat adventures stay fun, affordable, and worry-free!

Keeping your FatCat in tiptop shape is a piece of cake with these simple checks before each ride:

  1. Ensure proper tyre inflation.
  2. Check oil and fuel levels.
  3. Give the chain some love with a good cleaning and lubrication.
  4. Verify chain tension and make adjustments if needed.

For a complete guide, refer to the owner's manual and get all the details you need.

Our engines come with some fuel already in them but consider an oil change after the initial few hours of riding using the genuine Honda 10W-30 API SJ oil, available at your local Bunnings.

Before you hit the trails, some assembly tips to maximize your FatCat experience:

Safety Cautions:

  1. Route cables and brake lines carefully to avoid interference with steering. Secure the rear brake line with included cable ties to prevent catching on the front mud guard.
  2. The engine should have oil, but double-check and ignore any assembly instructions or labels suggesting to fill it.
  3. A low oil sensor prevents starting with insufficient oil or when on a lean.
  4. Adjust the throttle limiting screw under the air filter housing as desired (usually factory-set to about half throttle).
  5. Always check tire pressure before riding. The minimum recommended is 10psi, but it can vary depending on rider weight and terrain (up to 15 psi is fine).
  6.  The chain comes with an anti-rust coating but needs lubrication before use. Motorcycle chain lube is best, but gear oil or engine oil works too.
  7. For CVT maintenance info, refer to the owner's manual.
