Mine snapped like a twig today, under an hour on these bindings and Im already looking for parts.
My foot caught the wire as I exited the binding in tour mode and it snapped. Need to get one ASAP in Hokkaido Niseko area but can travel.

Bad luck, never been to Japan but the only thing I can think of is contact Gentemstick. I think they have a splitbaord in their lineup and may be able to tell you where to get a pin. They're not that far away either if they happen to have one.

GENTEM SHOWROOM

〒044-0078
北海道虻田郡倶知安町字樺山63-26
営業時間:12:00~20:00
TEL : 0136-22-5581 
FAX : 0136-22-5589 
MAIL : niseko@gentemstick.com

Or a local metalworkshop? they may be able to bend something, you need 1/4 inch or 6,35 millimeter.

Going to guess that any of the dealers listed on sparks web page probably have one:

I am not sure if you are close to Paul but I know he does a bit of touring. I would hit him up.if he doesn't have what you need he is pretty well hooked up in the shred world over there and would have a good idea where to point you. http://www.japowtours.com/

Crappo. I bent my LT pin first day on mine last season. Never had a problem since but since then I always carry a spare w/ me. Too bad you didn't invite me; you'd be shredding now.

Send spark an email!
They should be able to get one sent to JAPOW for you.
I'm chasing it from my end.
You will need to give me an address to ship to.
I'd prob just go with SS pins as a replacement, no risk of breakage.
You know how to contact me, I have them is stock

Also I have BC kit if you want me to send?

Sucks being stuck in Ozzie :cry: :cry: :cry:

Already emailed them and posted this thread but no reply to either. Im kinda bummed. I also have a BC kit here but it has no pin, they should delete the rest of the stuff and just fill it with pins lol. Does a voile s/s pin work?

Voile pin is a no go.
Steal the pin out of marks!!!
Seriously let me know where I can send one, I'll sort it out with spark.
I can send one to Tora in Kutchan.

Cheers

I am going to borrow Marks when he goes home in next week and replace them when I get home. Thanks to everyone who helped out. FWIW I am going to manufacture some stainless ones when I get home.
