Volkl World Cup Piston Plate Binding Mounting Question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello,

 

I recently bought a pair of Volkl GS Racetigers. But they were not setup for my boot size, a 29.5. Now they already have a piston plate on them, and i am very handy with tools, so i figured i could set them up myself and save $40 as well as learning something. Does anyone know which holes i have to screw the bindings into? Pics are below. Thank you!

well, a 29.5 is a big boot, bigger than some manufacturers even go to in their race boot. The Piston Plate is built for racing...

 

if I was a handy DIY kinda guy, knowing that, I'd put the toe in the most forward holes and then try the second to rear-most holes. I'd adjust from there as needed... that's what I'd do.

Well after playing around with it a little, my boot seems like it can fit in the forward most toe hole, and the middle toe hole. How should i pick between the two?

 

Also Torque specs on the screws would be super helpful.

Pick the holes that gets the center mark on the boot closest to the center mark on the ski.

 

As far as torque spec: tighten by hand and you'll feel when the screw bottoms-out and stops, stop turning when you get to that point. Visually inspect the ski to make sure the binding is flat to the plate.
