    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!

    burton becoms next year voile systems – real ore joke – i dont now.

    what i now is :

    a volie split kit works with special fix on burton splitboard good .

    when you modif. the burton interface – the work to ! – now joke

    i change some burton interface to volie system for some riders –

    and look the interface with open eays on.
    the had 3 littel problems left and right side pin( german BOLZEN )
    open and close machanics – and secret hook ….
    and the pins inside ( german UMLENKUNG)

    the new interface at 03-04 is better than the first… not perfect.

    the mechanics is like a switzeland clok- work with slow hand and not with a hammer in the hand.

    sorry for my english….

    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? 😆

    Jared,

    You might want to go back and re-read some of the Voile/Burton threads…

    Burton will not be distributing or selling their splits with the Voile hardware…they will simply have the Voile insert pattern and users will need to purchase the special Voile kit through other vendors.

    Sorry for the screwing around Christine, putting the voile gear on your burton is possible for sure, but bcr is right get a new split. Try to get your money back on the burton.

    in case people were inclined to do it here’s what i did.

    the pucks were straight forward. w/ my stance i luckily avoided screwing into any inserts.

    the touing brackets and lifters were a bit more work. to skirt drilling more holes and using t-nuts i made adapter plates out of 1/8″ carbon fiber plate. attaching up through each adapter plate i first fasten the bracket or lifter, then down through the adapter plate i attach everything to the board using burtons orginal inserts.
    the carbon fiber is nice and light and not too hard to work w/. for a clean look it’s best to rough cut the stuff w/ an abrasive wheel and then sand it down to a score mark. drilling holes will go much easier w/ a carbide drill bit.

    to make everything line up in the best possible way takes a bit more fuss’n. i mounted the touring bracket backwards to help w/ positioning for balance, to keep the lifter spaced far enough apart, and mostly to accomidate the nuts i had to use to fasten it to the adapter plate.

    even still, the slider track needs some help to clear those nuts. otherwise the the toe of the track binds w/ the nut and you can’t get your heal all the way down. here’s a more direct look at the material i needed to remove.

    anyhow, the board is riding great. my motivation was to use a binding system that didn’t work w/ the burton interface but maybe someone else could use it if they can’t wait for the new insert pattern to come out.

    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.

    Delrin would work fine as well from the same source and cheaper. Sometimes you can get “sample sheets” real cheap too.

    You can get sheets of delrin from mcmaster-carr that thickness for much cheaper. 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)
