oh, then i have no clue. best bet is to stick the wntire heelpiece into a vise (gently) and then bend the brakes using the broken pole method. if all else fails, ask the guys at your shop if there's anything they can do.

DON't HEAT THEM. this will weaken the heat treated metal causing them to snap when bent. just bend then very slowly. Most pro skiers have been able to bend them enough to fit 100mm waisted skis, so you should have no problem. take it slow though and bend carefully using a broken ski pole or piece of pipe etc and a vice.
What you have to do is bend them out...then back in again, so that they don't stick way out. You need a vice and a ski pole. I was having a rough time doing the bend back in part, but I got these pliar wrench thingys to help with that and it worked.
ok, i have mounted those bindings on my old msps and am useing them on my new msps as well as all my other skis
first of all, they will fit.
second, when mounting them it is easiest to use a rubberband to hold the brake above the ski...this also makes the screws in the front of the heel piece more accesible. once the heel piece is attatched to the ski take off the ruberband...the brakes wont fit right away but give them a little bend WITH A BOOT CLICKED IN.... that takes stress off the rest of the binding.
also a note on mounting skis with these bindings. Due to the extremely tight screw pattern...(the reason most people like this binding)it is always good to not only use glue but put a bit of epoxy in the screw hole as well. The reason is because, for taller people the amount of stress put on this heel piece when landing switch is enough to rip it out of most skis.
Please beware of this
chris...that means you, you weigh enough that i would recomend that.
girls: were 13
schmuck: oh yea...me to.......INCHES!
you're right too, I ripped out the heel of a pair of marker mrr 1500's twice, they have that same tight screw pattern, but there was only 3 screws, the p18s have four, and with the epoxy i should be set

^ I thought you said you got it with the pliars. Whoever said mount em first I don't agree, I think you could just rip the brake right out if it is not clamped. Otherwise you could just pull them apart, put a spacer (block of wood ect. and bend the tips back straight so they are not wings, but his too would rip the brake right out.
