    tunnel reinforcement?

    I read the write up Bill did in the how-to, which was great Bill. My question is, for those who are using the new fiberglass piece from the store, is everyone having to modify their stock pump inserts? I have an '06 with the upgraded inserts but wanted to know if everyone is having to cut them to fit properly. Thanks for any feedback.

    hey suthrn, I had to grind my inserts down about an 1/8" or so to fit. I have the new fiberglass piece and my skiis an 06. I just used a whiz wheel with it.

    Yes you will have to modify the stock inserts to adjust for the added thickness of the reinforcement.

    Dogger, did you counter-drill the reinforcement to accept the bottom of the inserts?

    The one I used is the same as in the store, that's why I did the write up so you all would know what's involved. Now my ski was different than some of yours will be, because I do not have the stock sound suppresion. I added a note for that the other day. I sure hope it was simple enough. if not I did not do my job well enough. Seems like Hallpass got his done so IMO others should be able to do it as well.

    Thanks for the input guys. I don't mind using my current inserts just didn't know if every set needed to me altered. Now I just need to go get me a die grinder and get to prepping.
