question about adjusting binding for new boot sole length

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi all, just went from a 314 BSL to a 305 and was wondering how difficult it would be to adjust Marker Jesters.  The Mondo is only 0.5 difference and my buddy, who is a former tech, keeps meaning to come over and show me how to do this.  It has been a few months now and he is extremely busy selling Subaru's so I am going to attempt this myself.  Is this something I can do myself, or should I just take in and spend the 20 bucks?  Thanks!

That is likely within the standard adjustment range of that binding using the forward pressure adjustment. Do a search (here and on Google) with the name of your binding and "forward pressure adjustment" or "forward pressure indicator" and you'll likely find some specific instructions on how to make the necessary change. Note that your boot sole will now be slightly more forward on the skis than before but I can't imagine it would make much of a noticeable difference for free skiing.

For ski boots, the .0 size uses the same shell as the .5 size (like, 26.0 and 26.5) and will have the same sole length. So if you go down from 27.0 to 26.5, then the sole length will come down accordingly.

 

I think there are clips on both sides of the back part of the Jester, press the clips then slide it either backward or forward so that your heel fits properly.

Nope, no clips on the Jester.

Just turn the large screw at the back of the binding clockwise to move the heel piece forward. About 4-5 clicks should equate to 10mm.

You'll then need to make sure the forward pressure is set correctly by putting your boot into the binding and checking to make sure the screw is flush with the housing around it.
