Vespa Pull Start Pedal Clearance Question

Garrett Bell /

Anyone know if the pull start for Vespa on treats by Cheeta will have any issues with the pedals??

My pedals are incredibly close to the variator already and not sure if i will have issues when adding the pull start.

Perhaps there are certain pedals that clear it better? His guide seems to show the pedals still attached.

Any help will be much loved!

Happy thanks G yalls!

Going by the other thread, I'm 99.9% there is interference with the pedals. Meaning, no more pedal

Crap, I couldn't find the other threat -____- my bad, but I appreciate the response greatly!

Re: Vespa Pull Start Pedal Clearance Question

You dont need pedals if its pullstart

Re: Vespa Pull Start Pedal Clearance Question

I bought a Pull Start from Cheetah, its well built to say the least. The pedal does come deathly close but if you bent the pedal arm a little it would clear. I would recommended a pedal arm extension, if you had one extension it would clear 100%

I know, but having pedals on a moped even if you don't need them has a special place in my heart. Irrational I know, but I always like to have the pedals. Just something I love about a moped with pedals.

First hand knowledge, I stand corrected. I am usually one to bend pedals before fabricating/buying anything.

Re: Vespa Pull Start Pedal Clearance Question

When you look at the pedal against the Pull Start mechanism you can easily bent a stock pedal arm so it will pass the Pull Start. I just like the extra space because if my feet are wet and slip I would like the extra clearance, for insurance purposes lol.

If you are serious about buying it, buy it this weekend, 20% off Treatland until Monday. You won’t be sorry they are a sturdy system.

The American made pull start kits are way less complicated and the Quality is way better too.

You get what you pay for. Fabrication only goes as far as the effort put forth and the materials chosen.

i have one of these on the way.

ordered it like 3 days before cheetah put his out.

zero knock to cheetz, always a fan of his fab work (bought way too many of his lazer plates over the years). im sure the difference in the two units is purely aesthetic

Re: Vespa Pull Start Pedal Clearance Question

Last day to buy Cheetahs Pull Start on the cheap at Treats. Pull Start works well with a Polini Variator

tried to find a few different ones. you guys got a link to the euro one. im not sure cheetachromes will fit my subframe

Re: Vespa Pull Start Pedal Clearance Question

There will be pedal problems unless you use something like what MLM just made. I’ve used these (2.0v) extenders 3 times on 3 of my pullstarts and they work wonderfully. Full pedal potential with the coolness of a pullstart, Win win

It would be highly improbable to bend a crank, as this is rotational force not lateral, but it does bring up the fact that this could shear the small threaded end off a vespa crank.

They're two different designs. Why would he buy the design he least prefers just because it's made in America? Besides, it's not like the actual pullstart mechanism isn't just a Chinese product anyways.

Cheetah makes quality products; I wouldn’t be surprised if the pullstart mechanism is also made in America.

Maybe 'assembled in America' . Sorry to say , but there isn't much that's made from raw in America these days . I hope that is changing .

I do find it kinda strange that you'd be obsessed about American products being you most likely ride a foreign moped .Edited 2 time(s). Last edit at 12/27/17 10:14PM by pdcomm.

I don't doubt the quality of his products, but to bash someone for not buying the "American" choice is ridiculous, especially when a)said choice contains asian-manufactured parts, and b) the person stated the Cheetah option wasn't viable for his application.

the reason i didnt go with cheetahs is because its bulky i was looking for lower profile.

and i was actually talking with one of the dutch guys when i was looking at a

different pull start. since then i gave up on it and tried some other things. still a work in progress. and really i would prefer euro parts for my bikes.
