My kids are aggressive skiers as I am, and the thought of an ACL injury sort of freaks me out. Great forum by the way here guys!
Welcome to Epic!
It's a good question. My wife's Dynastar Legend Exclusives came with a system binding; the binding and rails were removed and the ski redrilled for KBs. I assume you'd be no trouble, if the old plate's holes weren't too close to where the new binder would go. You can only drill so often.
For a definitive answer, though, you should go to a shop that sells and installs KB. Release testing must be a different thing with KB — and of course there's no knowing whether the lateral release setting is optimal. No TUV cert on that binding, you know.
