    Unfortunately no, the stock pads are about as cheap as possible and will shrink and deform big time when in the heat. Best to just purchase a set of aftermarket ones and install them yourself. Hydro Turf and Gators are your two best bets.

    I don't know about a recall, but they will be replaced under warranty

    You saw that ebay add right? Don't buy the stuff from him, way to much $$$.

    If you are in good with your dealer they can work it so you get aftermarket hydro or gator grips installed for free.

    its usually only the 04 models with riveted on mats that tend to warp, the foamy 05 plus ones do just fine...

    wrong, my 05 rxp and gtxsc curled up. The 05 mats tend to shrink and curl from the heat and sun.

    it is not fun. removing all the old glue sucks and when you put the new ones down if you use too much glue the mats want to curl up and not stick, if you use too little they don't stick.

    My 05 mats never gave me a problem, besides the slippage.

    Heat Gun=wipe away old glue, or acetone and wipe, or even paint thinner will work, took me about 15mins to remove all the stock mats and glue.
