Default Burton Reflex Channel Disc mounting question

Just picked up a pair of 2014 Diode Reflex.
Trying to set the binding stance angle on my ICS Custom X. There are no number indicator on the channel reflex disc. How do you set the stance to your accurate degree? For instance I'm a 18 front and 10 back. Any help would be appreciated. I'm sure there there must be a method to setting the angle to the proper degree but I just could not figure it out

i believe burtons disc go by 3 degree incraments. so if u start at zero and count 6 clicks, then you should be at 18. for the back, count 3 clicks and it will put u at -9.

Here's a couple of pics.
How do I know were the starting point 0 degree is? There is a couple of arrow markers on the binding and the disc, I tried to align them to use as the starting point 0 degree but it does appear to be 0 degree as its slightly angled.

Ok I have 2 different bindings and discs, I just set up the same as yours with no numbers , just arrows like you have and worked it out.
See how you have the arrow on the first tooth of the disc, rotate it once more so the arrow is on the second tooth. That is your zero, scratch a mark on the chassis adjacent to the arrow on the disc for reference.
Now every tooth is 3 degrees so you can work it out from there

FWIW you have 2012 discs with 2013+ chassis. Why they change this shit up from year to year I will never understand

ETM - thanks for the info. That was very helpful. I brought the bindings used from ebay. They might have given me a set of older disc that does not have the markers. I see if I can call burton rider service to send me a set of the newer discs with the markers.

You can call burton riders services and tell them that you need the reflex discs for the ICS and they will mail you a new one in the mail for free.

In the meantime perhaps you can take a guess with this. I do believe that each tab is 3 degrees.
