Hey everyone. Hope I'm posting this in the right place. How can I bend the exhaust tube to clear my pedals if I don't have a torch? Tips? Ideas? If this isn't in the right place, can someone move it? Thanks!

a securely mounted vise and a big enough lever, a very heavy nylon strap and a hydraulic jack can be an impromptu pipe bender, a local muffler shop or a wide crank kit... kelly

Perfect. There's a muffler shop around the corner from me. I'll take it over there and see if they can do it for me. I'm told its not good for a 2 stroke if I tried to run it without an exhaust pipe due to no back pressure?

Well I have the stock one that came with my kit, but when I test fitted it to my Trek 930 mountain bike the pedal was hitting it. Is the pipe pre bent?

Yeah I noticed lol. Been having a **** of a time getting my sprocket centered. The ninth bolt always hits a spoke.

if your using the rag joint what i do is wrap the hub or the dust cover with electrical tape until the sprocket center fits tight..... kelly

a hub adapter is the best option if you can afford it... kelly
A set of mags would be even better. Comes with sealed bearings and rear sprocket attached. A good heavy spoke wheel with sprocket and sealed bearings $$$.
