Hello. Well, kepnutz was near to give the correct answer. The cranks were cut, but at their base, not at the pedals zone. The pedals are at the original position.
Roadrunner, the pedals are not reversed, they are at standard position.
Robertse; this drive is for my adventure island.
The history is as follows: my adventure island arrived a pair of weeks ago. But i still haven't used it as an AI.
I used it as a kayak. First used the normal fins. Then installed the turbo fins. I found the normal fins pedaling too soft, so i'm going to use the turbofins forever.
But i found too that the pedals of the mirage drive are too high. I don't like to have my feets so high when pedaling. I'm surprised i'm the first to feel that.
So i ordered the pedal crank left and right 81222001 and 81221001. And cut them at their base. The crank has two drilled holes, one for attaching it to the mirage drive and the other for adjustment (that is 1 mm smaller). I used this last for attach it to the drive and this way only drill one new hole. I did it with a lot of care, so the holes are exactly at the correct position.
I had to cut a bit at only one
of the borders of the the "pedal adj assy" 81236 because the pedal hit it when pedaling. Now The pedal is always up, the second border of the "pedal adj assy" hold it in position.
So now my feets stand lower when peddaling. Hobie should make an adjustable heigh for the pedals drilling holes at different heighs on the cranks.
Somebody may think that now peddaling using turbofins is harder. Yes, it is harder. And i like it. I hated the soft peddaling at the first, using normal fins and long cranks.
