Sounds like your emergency brake is either hanging up or there is a interference issue with your new tires.
I would start with making sure your emergency brake is releasing completely.
First thing is to find a level place to raise the left rear wheel. Place a block behind the right rear wheel.
Place the transmission in neutral (disengage 4 wheel drive if you have it.) release the E brake and spin the wheel to check for drag. If your wheel is hard to turn and or you hear or feel some resistance the E brake cable may be binding, the shoes may be hung up, out of adjustment or worn out.
You Raise the Center of the Bike, so the Rear Wheel is OFF the ground and then there is a Collar that screws up and down on the Spring/Shock. Increase length softer Ride, Shorten Length for a Firmer Ride.
Manuals are generic, very seldom apply to just one model, and mostly just have safety and very basic info. The Onex is a very basic bike - just a rear derailleur and V brakes. Maintenance is the same as for any similarly equipped bike.
Yes, something isn't turning freely. It's either the front wheel, the back wheel, or the pedals and chain. Lift the bike off the ground and turn the front wheel by hand. If it doesn't turn very freely, it could be the hand-brake is dragging or the hub bearing is too tight. Try the back wheel in both directions. It should move freely in the forward direction. When rolling it backwards it is normal for the pedals to move too if this bike has a coaster brake (that is the kind of brake that is applied by pushing the pedals backwards.) It the back wheel moves forward freely, but backwards is a problem, then try the pedals by hand with the rear wheel off the ground. If this doesn't turn freely, the pedal crank bearing (a.k.a. bottom bracket) is too tight. Once you have identified the problem take it back to where you got it. It should be easy to fix, or they should replace it.
Raise the rear wheel again and with the engine off, try shifting through the gears while rocking the rear wheel back and forth by hand. You should feel each gear engage and should not be able to easily turn the wheel. If you can you have internal problems. I am assuming the clutch feels normal and is adjusted properly.
By "giving out" do you mean it feels like not all the power generated by your legs is getting to the rear wheel? This can be caused by a chain that need oiling, pedals that stick or don't turn easily, badly adjusted gear set (that doesn't have the chain riding in the middle of each gear, but off to one side or the other). Do you notice any chattering or scraping noises when you ride? Also, make sure your seat is adjusted correctly. To get full power, you leg should be almost straight when you are sitting on the bike and the pedal is at the bottom of the stroke. If not, raise the seat until you can just touch the pavement when the bike is tilted (as at a stoplight). Also, make sure the tires are inflated correctly. Overly soft tires take more work to get to your destination.
YOU PROBLEM IS YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE PARKING BRAKE CABLES .THEY ARE RELEASED BUT NOT ALL THE WAY CAUSING THE SHOES TO SIT TO CLOSE TO THE DRUMS.WHEN ADJUSTING YOUR BRAKES HAVE THE REAR END OF THE TRUCK OFF THE GROUND TIRES ON AND SLOWLY ADJUST ADJUSTERS AT THE SAME TIME TURNING THE TIRE UNTIL YOU FEEL A SLIGHT DRAG REPEAT FOR OTHER WHEEL
There is a simple way to fix it as I've discovered. Start your bike, if lights are flashing ride for a mile or two applying the rear brake a few times. Stop the bike and place on centre stand. switch off motor then restart. Your flashing lights should have gone. Why the flashing happens is if you ride and use your rear brake rarely and then your bike sits for a day or two without use your rear brake assembly fully retracts, ie pads away from disc and ABS gizzmos inactive. The ABS sensor unit then reports extended non use pattern to the onboard 'brain' which activates the warning mode of flashing lights. This has worked for me several times over the last 5 years when its occured. Full ABS operations return. Tried it on a mates bike and it fixed same problem on his.
If you look at the bottom of the rear brake drum you should find a little opening sometimes it has a rubber plug inserted in it. Pull out the plug and use a thin straight screwdriver to feel for the adjuster. The adjuster has a spoked wheel on it thatyou can turn with the screwdriver just turn it a couple of clicks at a time till you feel drag on the wheel whenyou turn it by hand.
