    Never had to do it myself, but Hydroturf are the mats I see used most on here. I actually think that the stock yamaha mats are hydroturf... but I could be wrong. The ones they sell come with high strength 3M adhesive already applied, so you just gotta take the old ones off and lay down the new ones.

    Get some Goof Off and a plastic scrapper. Use the Goof Off and the plastic scrapper to peal most of the mats off. Then use the Goof Off to soak the remaining pad and glue to remove that. After the Goof Off soaks for a while I used a old sock to rub the old glue and mat material off.
    Lots of work, but it can be done in a few hours.

    +1. GOOF Off worked well for me too. Still a lot of work but worth it in the end.

    Hydroturf and BlackTip are two choices of mats people like around here. I used Hydroturf.
