Question about Exercise & Fitness

Open Question

Black ooze! I have Salomon X Scream monocoque Skis. I have just returned from skiing and was giving them a wax before putting them away for the year. The skis have Prolink strengthening front and back and I noticed black sticky ooze emanating from the Prolink joints. These were easily cleansed by use of white spirit. 1) Is this a problem? 2) Do the Prolinks contain some sort of oil? 3) Do I have to have this rectified before skiing again? Thanks for your help.

SOURCE: hi, The rectifier of my honda CBR 1000f year of

The three yellow wires carry AC current from the generator to the rectifier. The rectifier turns this AC current into DC current and sends it back to the battery through the red and the black wires. I am not certain what the purpose of the 7th wire is on the new rectifier except that it may be used for thermal sensing of the rectifier - which would explain why it is mounted tight to the unit.
Of all the components that make up your Honda's charging system, the rectifier is the most likely to fail. The reason is usually excess temperature buildup - which causes the diodes inside it to fail. If you are running extra electrical accessories on your bike, this can cause the rectifier to overheat and die. Same thing if you frequently let the bike sit until the battery goes dead, the rectifier works hard to recharge it each time.
You may be able to extend the life of the unit by avoiding things that put extra strain on it, as described above. Also make sure there's nothing covering the cooling fins on the rectifier - or blocking airflow to it (dirt, that extra pair of gloves stuffed next to it, etc.).
Finally, there's one thing that will kill the rectifier instantly: connecting the battery cables backwards. That'll fry it every time.

SOURCE: Vertical adjustment on front binding. Salomon S810 Ti

If you can adjust vertical pressure then you should adjust it as follows.
Put a piece of normal paper (like A4 printer paper) on the toe bit (and heel for that matter) and clip in the boot so that the paper sits between the boot sole and the binding base surface. You should be able to pull the paper out from between the boot and binding without ripping the paper, but obviously without there being a noticeable gap.
If in doubt take it to a ski tech, a bit of cash might save you a broken leg! They might even be able to help you or advise free of charge.

Cybex 520t error 6


Replacement Parts for Fitness Exercise Equipment at SPORTSMITH
Error 6 is a motor over voltage error. Motor voltage exceeded 200 VDC for 200 milliseconds. This can be caused by a worn deck and belt due to a lack of routine maintenance. AKA adding wax between your deck an belt. You might be able to wax your machine and make the error go away. More than likely a new deck and belt will be needed. Using the link below and your model and serial number, you can find the needed items. In worse case scenario, you may also need a new motor control board.

How To Re-Wax a Wood Deck for a Trotter Treadmill


Following are instructions on how to re-wax a wood deck for a Trotter treadmill and a list of materials needed for this procedure

Materials Needed for Re-Wax

  • 1 lb. of Trotter deck wax
  • Clothes iron (never to be used on clothing again)
  • Belt sander with 120 grit sanding belt
  • Vibrating sander with 250 and 400 grit paper
Pre-Existing condition: If your wood Trotter treadmill deck is worn down through the first ply, it cannot be re-waxed.
  1. Using a belt sander and 120-grit belt, gently sand in the same direction as the grain the glazed layer off the top of the deck until you have reached porous wood. If, while sanding, the first layer of ply has been sanded off, the deck can no longer be re-waxed
  2. Using a vibrating sander with 250-grit paper, sand the entire top surface of the deck until it is smooth and soft.
  3. After sanding with the 250-grit paper, continue sanding with 400-grit paper until completely smooth.
  4. Heat the clothes iron to its maximum temperature. Put a handful of Trotter deck wax on the center surface of the deck and place the preheated iron on top of it until the wax melts.
  5. Work the wax into the deck surface by pushing the melted wax across the deck with the iron. Add more wax as needed until the entire top surface of the deck is impregnated with wax.
  6. Apply just enough wax until the wood is saturated with wax.
Do NOT leave wax pooling on the surface of the deck.

Need to know where motor controller is located at and what to do to replace it.


your motor controller board is the electronic board inside the steel box under the hood. the usual problem is a burnt up resistor which will be easily to see if you remove it out of the box. if it is the board you will have to get it repaired or replaced. the best and cheapest repair would be to call glide fitness products in santa ana california 1 866 637 4600. they have repaired many for me . the cost is $200 plus shipping , a deal because a new one is a $1000. note that if you send it in make sure you call to get a return number first as well as remove the wax lift board and a small component on the outside of the box and put them in a safe place until the new one arrives ,then put them back on . the entire box complete with the motor controller board and capacitors go back for repair . they will actually send out a repaired one if in stock to save you down time which is great but make sure you send the old one back or they will have to charge you . get all details from them before you do this
the reason a board burns out is usually because of friction between the belt and deck board if you have a treadmill with an auto waxer make sure you clean the wax spray nozzle every month they do plug up alot talk to glide they have a great non clogging wax to eliminate this issue
good luck

Stand on the back of it, facing the front of the skis. You might have to push the button that helps you raise it while you are staning on it. It is a very elegant ride down! Hope this helps.
