post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Found a pair brand new in Factory packaging,They are on the way.Do they or were they designed to be mounted on a riser.?

Simply know them by reputation and would like to mount them on my IM70x's.I know they are no longer imdemified but I do most of my own mounts and upkeep myself.Chime in if you have some insight.

I just bought some Elan's for the "like new"  977's on them and there are no plates on mine.

 

Good "All about Sally"  thread on TGR here

There are a yellow 8-10mm riser that was available. It does have a different mount pattern than your typical Salomon Driver.

My 977s came flat and I kept them flat because they are on bump skis.  I'm about 95% sure that riser plates from an 877 or a 900 would work with them if you want to pump them up some.  I seem to recall switching a pair of 877s and 977s once with no redrilling required.  The 900s also look like the same hole pattern to me looking side by side mounted.

 

Phil, that true?

977s do not require risers, but they are compatible with DR9 suspension plates, which were made for the subsequent 997 series.

 

I don't think the 977 would seat properly on the yellow Drive+ plates (if that's what is being suggested), those plates are fitted for the 900 series specifically. The 900 series has a differently shaped "toe print" than the 957, 977 and 997 series, and the heel of 900s have a plastic pad on the bottom that must be removed to click into the Drive+ heels.

No, there was a yellow FLAT riser that was used for 957 and 977 and 997 series. I am not referring to the Driver+ plates. I thought I had a picture someplace from my collection.

That is a good call out.  The friction plates are different shapes and sizes like you said.  Here is a blurry photo of them side by side, but I get the picture anyway haha.

Might be able to hot knive the extended part of the riser but looks to be more trouble than it is worth.  I'd mount them flat before trying that wtih a 900 riser.
