Mounting FKS Toepiece with Pivot Heel Piece
So I have a pair of FKS 140 bindings with the old pivot 18 toe piece construction. However the heel pieces that come with them are the wrong brake size for the skis I want to mount them on. I just bought a pair of brand new pivot 14s for 250$ with the correct break size. My question is:
Can I get a ski shop to mount my skis true center with the fks 140 toe piece and the heel pieces from my brand new pivots?
I don't get it, the fks140 toepieces and the pivot 14 dual/wtr or gripwalk toepieves are functionally the same, pivot 14's never had the all metal 18 don style toe. But do whatever you want the holes are the same
Your shop should be able to do it. Mine does. Any knowledgeable worker knows that the FKS/Pivot is the same exact binding, just with a different graphic. Do you mean that the toe pieces are the older 14 din w/ the static AFD or the all-metal 18 din toepiece? They're different. I'm not sure how a shop would react to you trying to mount 18 din toes with 14 din heels.
My shop in Reno mounted fks 18 toe piece with look 14 heel and the other ski opposite. Perfect cause I always break them and didn’t have complete pairs
Ive asked two shops today and they both said no.
