take the skis and your boots to a shop, they may have to re mount the bindings, and they will definitely need to set the DIN for you

This question alone - and mainly what you left out of it - tells me you don't know anything about your skis. Your second question confirms it. Take them to a shop and get them taken care of - you and your knees can thank us later.

ok i'll prolly just bring them in then... how much will this cost me approx?

depends on what needs to be done, I'd say plan on between $25 and $50. $25 would be very reasonable for an adjustment and function test, $50 is ballpark for a remount and function test. Give a local shop a call (or a few) and check rates + turn around time, some shops get backed up this time of year.

No, you should take them to the shop, if you're not going to though, do your boots fit in the bindings? if so then you can just adjust the DIN, I don't recommend setting your own DIN, but it is possible. If you boots don't fit, then you have to take them to the shop.

There are five factors that are taken in consideration when setting bindings: height, weight, skier's age, skier type, and boot sole length. A chart is needed to figure out the recommended setting.

Also with the 912 Ti, the toe wings, toe height, and forward pressure need to be adjusted properly.

You can guess at all this and save some money. But paying a certified shop to work on your skis costs less than reconstructive knee surgery.

Also if the boot fits, it won't be over 20 bucks, and might not be over 10 to get them adjusted.

Bad recommendation for someone asking the questions he has asked.

Do you know what forward pressure is and how to tell if it is correct? If not, GET IT DONE RIGHT. They can show you while you are there, but it seems you're very new & unsure about all this, so unless you're 100% sure of what you're doing, keep your hands off the bindings and let someone do it who really knows.

This is really a simple thing, and if your boots fit, you're looking at $15-25 for peace of mind, as well as saving your knees.

Where do you live? I'm in St. Paul. I could do it for you and teach you a little bit in the process.

Just wondering, if you don't have the 25 bucks to spend on getting the bindings adjusted where are you gonna get the $70 for a lift ticket there are special tools required to calibrate your bindings not to mention each manufacturer has slightly different ways of making these adjustments so it's virtually impossible to give a DIY procedure, not to mention the insurance risks they would face if someone got hurt from their advice.

Lift tickets aren't $70 in MN.
