My pedals started to squeak on my FX Propel. I removed the set screw and pedal on the right side no
problem. Then I cleaned the shaft and inside the pedal and put a light coating of grease on the shaft and put everything back together.
When I tried to pull the left pedal off it was so tight the allen screw stripped out inside the set screw.
Now I need to figure out how to get the screw out and the pedal off and will Native help with this problem.
My dealer called and said that Native will send some new screws but that's the least of my problems.

The left pedals on bikes and Propels are reversed threaded into the pedal crank arms. The parts are interchangeable with most bicycles. Don't know if this is what you are talking about though. Many owners actually upgrade the pedals to BMX bike pedals that are much higher quality. 


Just a drop of water in an endless sea...

Is the set screw that holds the pedal onto the shaft also left hand?

The screw that holds the left pedal onto the spindle is counter threaded, just like on bicycles, so turn it left to tighten, right to loosen.
