Still not advised to ride it that way.

That question was quite clearly answered already...

No. Burton replied and said the reason you want to use the m6 screws is because they are shorter and will not dent the channel. I was asking if in the event that the non-m6 screws still didn't touch the channel and were tight if it would be OK (which is a question I had not asked previously)

Just out of curiosity if the screws are all good (tight, not touching channel) why would you guys still not recommend them?

1: long screws will likely bottom out and dent the Channel.
2: If the screw doesn't bottom out and dent the Channel, you wont have enough tension on the disc which could easy result in the disc spinning or the whole binding slipping.

the second scenerio is more likely and would lead to injury. likely a knee injury.

get the shorter screws. they're free.
Which part of the bold bit is not clear?

Because:
the Channel won't always be clean. if anything builds up on that surface and/or the board bends: YOU ARE AT RISK.
If you ever move your stance back for powder: YOU ARE AT RISK.

We did a very intense study on every possible tolerance combination possible and having been in front of that screen and making bindings for 8 years, it is in your and your boards best interest to just listen to the advice we've given you.

Sorry to get to the party late here, but the Burton guy is correct.

I'm sure if you ride it the way it's set up now, you will damage the channel and probably get binding slip.

Please remove the location from your profile. I don't want people to think that everybody from Alberta is like you!!!

Burton guy, I dunno how you didn't snap! Oh and please start making the C60s again. I'll pay good money. I put them on my $1500 fancy pants board.
