hot.pocketJust playful bullshitting. In the end, unless you can find someone to swap with you a pair of replacement brakes is going to be around the cost of new pivots.
115 on a 98 ski is a severe amount of hangover and you're going to have a bad time. Find someone to swap with or buy a pair of 95 pivots.
Respect, I didn't think you'd respond like that haha. And for the record I'll reiterate that yes it's annoying how much of a bitch it is to replace pivot brakes...I've been there. brakes are clearly the Achilles heel of the pivot line
Jesse_This is true...I thought explained it clearly that I didn't actually own the skis but had a pair of pivots that weren't mounted. From what I'm getting at I got my answer though. 115 is too much overhang for the kartel 98s and I'll just have to track down some 95mm brakes. And that you can replace the brakes when the bindings aren't mounted. Correct?
Yep. I think it's worth noting that you could also grab some smaller ones and bend em out. I have 2003 pivot jibs on my 96 waist skis and those old binders were made for something stupid skinny like 75 or 80mm. Not ideal but better to bend out than have overhang IMO
It's off season now so I'd suggest looking around for a good deal and even checking shops for brake units lying around for cheap
