Awesome, I have one left to try this with and I think about an eighth of an inch will do it.

Yea...usually around an 1/8" or so does it. Need to make sure the pedal is threaded in when you start the grinding...a bit will need to come of the end of the pedal thread along with the bit of material off the arm itself.

I'm going to use my dad's grinder this week to finish the pedal. I've got it sitting by me and the pedal is threaded in place.

How far can you bend a pedal? I used the grinder and I guess I didn't take enough off. I'll probably need to hit it with the grinder again. I broke one yesterday that would have been perfect if it hadn't broke. guess hitting it with a sledge was not a good way to bend it.

I would not suggest bending the pedal if you can get it with a grinder. Play around with the torque on your muffler bolts as well. If you torque the outward nut a bit more then the inward nut....it will draw the muffler inward just a bit, but maybe just the bit you need to get it too clear. Leave the sledge in the tool box.LOL

This issue has been totally resolved. I heated up the muffler and bent it just a hare on the vise. I took it for a test drive to confirm the cranks to not hit the engine or the exhaust and bingo good to go. The next thing that happened was my master link fell out. It sounded like something worse happened. There I was stuck on the road wondering what to do, but I took a look around and found one by one all the pieces of the master link. love it

I'm having a great time on this motorized bicycle I hope the fun never stops. I'm 42 this year and I feel like I'm 18 when I'm cruising downtown on Friday night with other mopeds, motorcycles and cars all out enjoying the warm summer night. I'm sure this post makes me sound like a dork but I don't really care. I'm sure my bicycle helmet makes me look like a dork anyhow.
