Can’t find a new 2021 Yamaha SuperJet at your local dealership yet? Maybe instead you want to give that tried and true 2-stroke a fresh new face for next season. Well in this video, freeride world champion Mark Gomez walks us through one of the best modifications you can make to your ski which is to put a new traction mat kit on it.
This is the easiest way to improve the lackluster factory mat or to simply replace that worn out mat that has been on your ski for years.
For this video, Gomez is replacing the factory mat on his new 2020 SuperJet and the process will be identical if you have a 1996-2020 model year Yamaha SuperJet. The particular mat being installed is Hydro-Turf part #HT-751 and is shown in black molded diamond, with a 9mm plush under pad and 2-inch corner kick wedges.
This mat is being installed using the recommended contact cement adhesive method however you can also order the kit with a peel and stick adhesive, although that method might not hold up as well. So get those scrapers out, roll up those sleeves, and follow Mark along in the video below.
