Forums DIY and Mods voile interfaces on a burton? Viewing 18 posts - 1 through 18 (of 18 total) Author Posts April 3, 2005 at 4:13 pm #566609 christine 3 Posts I have a Burton split, and I was wondering if it is possible to modify the board to replace the interfaces with the voile system. I haven’t actually seen how the voile fits together up close…so this is kind of a shot in the dark. I’ve had several of the Burton interfaces crack on me so I don’t really trust them…plus, I heard Burton was switching over to the Voile system so I’m also concerned that I won’t be able to get replacement Burton interfaces once they switch over. Any advice? Thanks!

Ã¢â‚¬Å“don’t cheat yourselfÃ¢â‚¬Â¦treat yourself!Ã¢â‚¬Â April 4, 2005 at 6:10 am #581355 jared 56 Posts Try to get Burton to send the Voile interface and next year’s board? If not that, then snag some extra parts off ’em & keep rotating through your stock as it breaks. Like you send in the broken ones, put on the spares, send in spares when they break put on the replacements, etc. If Burton is not reliable with extra parts/warranty, score some cheap burton splits off ebay for parts and cannabalize until you buy your next split. Best of luck, let us know how it pans out ‘cuz there are going to be a lot of burton split riders wondering about parts and interface replacement in the next few years. I’d be real impressed if Burton recalled its defective products & replaced ’em with a setup, maybe you ought to suggest it? 😆 April 4, 2005 at 2:51 pm #581356 bcrider 4149 Posts @jared wrote: Try to get Burton to send the Voile interface Jared, You might want to go back and re-read some of the Voile/Burton threadsÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ Burton will not be distributing or selling their splits with the Voile hardwareÃ¢â‚¬Â¦they will simply have the Voile insert pattern and users will need to purchase the special Voile kit through other vendors.

Try to get your money back on the burton.

Where does one buy 1/8″ carbon plate??? April 27, 2005 at 9:57 pm #581365 brett 16 Posts someone had some laying around at work so i helped myself. i believe they got it from a hobby supply place. you can also get it through these guys. http://www.mcmaster.com/ beware. the stuff is spendy. the cheapest mcmaster has it listed for is $82 for a 12 x 12. maybe a hobby shop would have some smaller chunks. it’s nice stuff to work w/ though. very strong, very light, and snow doesn’t stick to it! oh………, one more thing if anyone tries this. mount the adapter plates to the board first, then use the voile template to transfer the hole location to the plates for the voile hardware. doing things in this order helps insure a better alignment.

Sometimes you can get “sample sheets” real cheap too.

It’s super light, excellent machining, won’t crack of break. For as little as you need I think you can get a sample sheet for less than $10. Polycarb or nylon would also work just as well. The carbon looks trick but I wouldn’t shell out the $$$for it. wow, old thread, didn’t notice i already replied. 8) Viewing 18 posts - 1 through 18 (of 18 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
