Pedals are marked with "L" and "R" to indicate left and right. Do not remove these labels until after you finish assembling your pedals. Align your right pedal to the pedal crank on the right side.. Tighten in a CLOCKWISE direction, as if you are pedaling forward. Align your left pedal to the pedal crank on the left side. Tighten it in a COUNTER-CLOCKWISE direction, as if you are pedaling forward. Check your pedals before each ride to ensure that they are tight.
IT’S VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU ATTACH THE PEDALS IN THE DIRECTION INDICATED. WHEN ATTACHING THE LEFT PEDAL, COUNTER-CLOCKWISE IS CORRECT. THIS IS COUNTER INTUITIVE TO HOW MOST ITEMS TIGHTEN BUT WILL ENSURE THAT YOU DO NOT STRIP YOUR PEDALS. STRIPPING PEDALS CAN LEAD TO SERIOUS INJURY AND WILL DAMAGE YOUR E-BIKE AND INVALIDATE YOUR WARRANTY.
