Mounting Bindings on Dynastar Plate

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 

Hi All - I just bought some 2010 Dynastar Speed Course Ti's with Dynastar PX 12 Bindings.  These have the I - Box WC plates with pre-drilled holes.  My problem is that the binding screws are spaced further apart than the holes, so that i can not use the full range.  If you can see in the pic below, there are 2 sets of 5 holes for the front and rear binding and from the literature i can find, the bindings should go in the first hole in each set, or the 2nd in each, etc....however, my rear binding screws are spaced further so that if the front screw goes in hole 1, the back screw is in hole 4, and i need to mount it in the 3rd hole back, but then the back scew does not have a corresponding hole.  BTW my boots are not that big, 305mm sole.  Any help greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

You have the wrong binding for that plate/ski. You need the PX 'Racing' which has a slightly shorter distance between the front and rear screws on the heel.

So if I was cheap and lazy and bought the PX 12 to throw on my 2012 Ti's, would it work?

post #6 of 26

PX12 no. PX12 Racing yes.

Very punny Rossi Smash.

 

What if I went with something like Rossignol Axial2 100 S Race Solar-- I've got a pair at home.  Would they work?

post #9 of 26

Just measure the distance between the sets of screws on the heel piece. As was stated above, it needs to match up with the "pairs" of holes in the rear plate. I don't have a pair near me at the moment. Can check later if you want the dimension. Just a quick look says they Look good.... wink.gif

post #10 of 26

OK, here are the numbers, distance between the front pair of holes and the rear pair on the heel pieces of Look/Dyna PX bindings

 

PX Racing - 80mm

 

PX - 105mm

 

PX Demo - 130mm

Ended up buying a PX15 Race, looks like the same one you've got on yours Rossi!  

Any tips for mounting these snazzy "Maxflex" binders?

post #12 of 26

Pretty straight forward. The holes on the plate are marked with the bsl ranges for each of the different pairs. Find yours and screw'um down snug.

Fine tune the size/forward pressure setting with the heel track worm screw so that the grove in the head of the screw is just visible at the track end.

Set you DIN setting front and rear. For good measure you can always have a release check done at you local ski store that you trust (?).

 

Best part........go ski'um!   ski.gif  snowfalling.gif

 

 

 

 

Edit, You need to set the Maxflex "connector" for your bsl as well. You change the length at the toe piece. You can read it on the top surface as can be seen in my picture above.

post #13 of 26

Just did them, wasn't too bad at all.  I got a little intimidated by the crazy metal/plastic in the middle but turns out the box came with a nice little picture book on how to mount them.  Two questions though.  

 

First, should the toe screws closest to the BSL line be flush with the binding plastic?  It's hard to tell on yours, but mine aren't as you can (kinda) see in the pic below.  There doesn't seem to be an indent in the binding to accommodate a flush screw, so I'm thinking they're all set the way they are.

My other question/issue is that I can't get the front toe screws to lay flat.  The keep seeming to go in at a very slight angle which is quite strange.  I've mounted tons of bindings, never on one of these Dynastar plates before though, but am stumped by this.  It might just be that I'm OCD, but they look angled to me.  I doubt it would be a problem if they were skied, but still better be safe and ask!

Hmmm looks like I'm going to have to go investigate those front screw confused.gif

Thanks!

Hey, just Googling this because I bought the same skis (Action Sports Outlet, anyone?).  172's with the race plate and PX 12 Cross bindings.  My screw holes fit, but when I screwed the bases into the corresponding holes (for 326 mondo) the jaws aren't wide enough to get the boot in.  Is there a way to spread the mounting plates themselves apart?  Seem to be held together in the middle with the silver plastic link.

Are they 105mm between the front and rear holes of the heel piece? Then wrong heel.....

 

post #18 of 26

Rossi,

 

Thanks much for your response.  They are indeed 105mm between those holes.  So there must be a Large Boot Size heel piece for the PX12? 

 

And if so - the heel piece would position the boot farther back on the ski?  Hoping this is fine for balance.

Go back and read this thread from the start. The "normal" PX12, with the 105mm length is not made for this skis plate. The PX Race @ 80mm will work properly on the plate. What is you bsl? (boot sole length). Yes, when positioned with the correct holes, it will allow the heel piece to be farther back on the plate. If both the toe and heel are in the proper holes the balance of the ski will be as intended.

Thanks - missed that one but I see it now.  Time for a call to Action Sports Outlet.  BSL = 326

I have a similar plate on a pair of World Cup Stock Dynastars.

I'm wondering whether the to mount them with PX races or Px Race MaxFlex. The dimples are to show wherte to drill to mount Look P-Series or FKS style bindings.

What bindings were supposed to be used with this plate? Or maybe what's the best binding for  it?

I am also wondering about stack height as they seem to be really tall plates. 2nd picture below shows heel piece section of plate to show thickness.

All of those bindings are fine for the plate. It's personal preference as to which ones you want to use. Fyi, you can find the PX14/15Race and the Maxflex 15 all for under $150. The FKS/P turntables will be at least twice that. All are very good bindings.

 

Stack height is what it should be on a ski of this type.

I'm in!  ASO sent the correct bindings - PX Racing 15 MFX's.  All mounted up and just in time - supposed to start snowing in the Sierra next week.  Thanks Rossi for your help.

One final question - what's the correct clearance for the fine tuning to boot size at the heel?  I checked my last pair of skis, then realized I installed those too.  Probably a good thing I still have my knees.

I can't open your pictures.

Here is what it should look like with the preload set correctly. You can just see the groove against the back of the heel piece on the adjusting worm screw. If not turn in/out until it does! Always remove the boot and then re engage it back into the bindings to see the new adjustment.

Score!  Dialed in, now just let it snow.  Thanks again Rossi - you're a life saver.    Can't wait to try these out.

 

(I tried the IMG code and direct HTML link from Photobucket, thought this worked for me b4)

I just bought a used pair of these same skis -- they look exactly like this and the mounting plate looks exactly the same. However, mine came with PX 12 bindings already mounted. Note that they are NOT PX 12 "Racing" but just the regular PX 12 bindings. They have 105mm between the front screws and the back screws on the heel pieces. They have the heel tab forward pressure adjustment with the yellow-bar window rather than the screw adjustment that comes on the Racing bindings.

 

They came mounted for a 315 bsl and I needed to change them to a 325 bsl. I took the bindings off the plate and noticed that the plates had printed bsl-range guides on them. There is a set of guides (bsl ranges) for the PX bindings, another set for the PX Racing bindings and at least one other set of guides that I don't remember now. I moved my bindings to the hole patterns designated for the 324-(something higher) bsl range, which was ultimately moving the bindings further apart one set of holes. The necessary holes were all there and perfectly positioned for the PX 12 bindings. My experience seems to be in contrast with the OP.
