    Hey guys
    Just finishing a Lifan swap on my K0 down here in New Zealand and noticed that with the pit bike pegs I planned to use, the pedal hits the pegs .
    Is this common on a swap? Do you guys usually mod the pedal/put a different one on, or do offset pegs clear the pedal?

    I first fit the pegs to the engine...which could mean sourcing a Lifan footrest assembly. That's a lot easier than cobbling the vintage original, it'll give you a better fit, too. After that, it's time to fit the brake pedal. That could mean "blue wrench persuasion", cutting/sectioning/welding, or custom fabbing.
