So i can't get the screws out to remove the ski walk mechanism on my f1s. They seem to be installed with some sort of permanent thread locker, I tried heating them with a soldering gun for a full minute to release the thread locker and am worried if i heat them any more it will damage the shell.
Do you have any tips for removing them or should I just drill them out?
If i drill them out will the square back nut and alien ski walk screw listed here work as replacements? (The f1 screw is listed in the description but is out of stock?)
Hey Ryan, our shop techs report that using a soldering iron is indeed the best way. Just keep applying more heat if the initial hit didn't work; it's unlikely you'd be able to deform the plastic of the boot to any noticeable degree. As to swapping out the F1 ski/walk mech for the Alien, it looks like the screws should be sufficiently similar as to be interchangeable (potentially with a small amount of modding on your end).
How much shorter is the 21.5-23 f1 walk lever then the 23.5-29 and does it use the same screw hole spacing? I'm wondering if it could be swapped in to a pair of 27's to reduce the forward lean.
The 21.5-23 sized lever is 4mm shorter than the 23.5-29 version. The screw hole spacing is the same so this could be an option to change the forward lean! With that said, the boot will have been designed to work with the original geometry, so there may be a change in performance (but I suppose that is the goal anyway!). Hope that helps!
Zach, Need to know which generation boot you have. If you compare the pictures of the 1.0 or 2.0 we have on this page, it should be pretty obvious. They only include what is shown in pictures, no screws.
