no without having LSD/RSD complatable cranks...and a new hub...or freewheel that is for RHD....


you have what is called LHD...its for people that run pegs on the right side...so that the sprocket wont get dinged up......

so if you dont run pegs....or you run them on the right side..then just keep it...i
and if you run pegs on the left side...consider getting a new freewheel or wheel and cranks to switch back...

i assume your friend got a Haro? Mirra maybe?


thats the only stock bike i can think of with LSD...

It's LHD. The only company that refers to it as LSD was Haro, in a series of crappy ads that were a play on doing acid.
