How bad? Is there any way to extend the pedal arm out with a spacer or something? Could a different arm be fitted? Is there any way to put a bend in that arm to get around it? SBP would do well to figure something out so that a pull start could be used. Somebody might make a custom arm for that side. Starting the engine looks like it could be awkward for anyone and really hard for anybody with a disability like your customer with bad knees. This is my first experience with the shift kit and I'm only familiar with one piece cranks, so I need to figure something out, too.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
