    D plate installed wrong ??? WTF

    Is there a possibility that the D plate could be installed wrong. A local mechanic told us today that the D plate was on wrong. if I recall correctly, There is only one way it goes on, I even went back and looked at RIVA's instructions to double check.

    what do you mean by this ? And the chip is installed. He was referring to the plate being inverted. I don't see how this could happen that's why i'm questioning him.

    as long as the mentioned dowell pins are in place it can't be installed wrong - if the pins weren't there than yes it could be wrong

    You can reverse the R&D plate, but the hole stays on the bottom.

    Your fine. There is a little bump that matches the stinger outside surface. As mentioned the hole in the plate is in the right place since the dowell pins are in.

    I don't think I would want that guy working on my ski. He probably offered to fix it for a lot of money.
