Highback rotation?

I wanna rotate my highbacks on some Ride Spi's.

When I remove the "hinge bolts" on the highbacks, I see that they're both in the middle of 3 possible positions. Simple, I think. I'll put right side one of the in the forward postion and leave the left one in the middle. That should rotate it clockwise.

When I do that, the highback rubs and the forward lean adjuster never gets to within 1/2 inch of the rail it's supposed to rest on.

Okay, so I put the left one in the rear position (pulling that side forward) and put the right back into the middle position. Same amount and direction of rotation, but now the FLAD completely misses the rail and slides down in front of it.

Obviously, I missing the idea here somewhere. Any ideas?

im pretty sure you dont wanna leave the other side in the middle slot. if you move the one side to the far left hole you wanna put the bolt on the other side in the opposite hole.

That rotates it way too much...like 25 degrees. I only want to go 12 degrees or so

i have my bindings set at 15/-15 and doing that for my bindings still doesnt quite make it perfectly parallel to my heel edge. thats really your only other option as far as i know but i never owned a pair of ride bindings, but the set up sounds very similar to most of my bindings. maybe a picture to help me better understand?

I have my Contrabands set at 12/-12 and rotating them the way Cr0_Reps_Smit said gets then nearly perfect. If you can post a picture of the angle they go to that would be great.

yep, that is the only way to rotate the highbacks, and it shouldn't be anywhere near 25 degrees. I made the same mistake when I first tried to rotate my highbacks on my Betas, but one I moved the insert out of the middle position it worked perfect. I ride a 15,-15 duck stance as well and its almost perfectly even with the edges as well

Thanks for the responses. I'll give that a shot.

Basically that only allows for a single adjustment though, correct?

Yep. Only 3 angles to choose from. You could oval out the holes and use something sor tof small spacer to move the T-nuts for finer adjustment. Although that would void your warrenty and could lead to breaking your highbacks.

What does rotating your high back do?

It's supposed to give you better heel side response. Are you supposed to set the highback as parallel as possible even if it ends up pointing slightly in the other direction?
