I asked this before but have found some new information i was wondering what others think. I have K2 Mod X in 181 length with LOOK Pivot 7 bindings. I just got new boots which have a soul length of 298mm and my old boots were 285mm. The shop were i bought the boots looked at my ski's and said remounting is not nessary as the way K2 determines were the toe peice is mounted is there is an arrow on side of ski that says "boot toe" so regardless of boot soul length the toe peice always gets mounted there and then its just a matter of were to mount the rear part of the bindings. No problem with getting the current bindings forward pressure set, BUT if thats the case the bigger the boots the farther the center of the boot gets moved back because of the toe peice always being mounted in the same postion. That seems strange to me but it does say 'boot toe" on the side of the ski with an arrow and my bindings are mounted now so that the toe of the boot lines up with the arrow. Just seems strange that the larger the boot the farther back the center of the boot would be on the ski. Any mounting techs out there that cou;ld set me straight. I have an email I sent to K2 but havent heard back yet.
