yes, u can, but there is a number of things to consider.
Is ur rim equipped for it?
Do u have a split link in ur chain? (i no thats a pretty stupid question but i have seen quite a few GOOD bmx bikes that dont have one)
Do u have a sproket mount on the left crank arm?
And i think the most important question is, is it really worth the hassle?

Do you mean a master link when you say split link. I would say most good bikes don't have a master link because they are more prone to break

Also the rim has nothing to do with it.

What you need to check is if your freewheel/cassette is lhd and if your cranks have a sprocket bolt on the left.

I master/split link has the ability to take more pressure than an ordinary link.

well i used to run RHD, but since i also grind right, when i was learning how to grind i had a lot of issues with hitting my chain/chainwheel on ledges/boxes, so i did a LDH conversion. thank god for my birectional hub

Another option is to get a new crank arm for the left if you do not have a bolt hole on the left arm ATM. You would need a new hub unless yours is bidirectional. And the master link has nothing to do with the switch.

that is the first time i have heard that.
There are a ton of threads on this and i think that they are hit and mis.

I beg to differ, I couldn't stand having a right hand drive, because I grind on the right.
