View Full Version : Start of pulled inserts?
March 29th, 2011, 09:55 AM
What do you look for to warn you of a pulled insert? I've got an older Generics Peak that I use as an all mountain board that has a slight rise around one of the inserts. The base has a large amount of binding suck. I'm pretty sure that the insert is slightly pulling out. I use Snowpro Race bindings with this board. Is there a way to fix this or prevent if from pulling up more? Was thinking of putting a spacer around the mounting screws to distribute the pressure a little more. I ride this board on double black steeps, mogels, and launch off rollers at 40 mph. It is a fun board that I use for a rock setup. Would like to make it last a little longer.

Might want to take that board to a shop that does repairs-whoever you go to for an opinion. Better than having the bindings come off while you are riding hard.I don't know if that can be fixed?

Snowpros have more suck then other bindings due to the kidney hole design. Yes, you could put a spacer there, to support the top of the insert directly. Algternatively, you could use Burton Elevator plates. They are slightly offset, so they might alow you to use a healty set of inserts. Board will feel a bit stiffer, though. Not sure, if they are wider then the board...
