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.

What different types of cross-country skis are there?


there are two types

1. general touring skis -these are for track skiing. They are long, narrow, and light compared to metal-edge skis, making them more efficient and very fast. This makes them better to use for the groomed trails.

2. metal-edge skis -for skiing out-of-track or on steeper terrain. They are heavier than touring skis and have metal edges to grip the snow and ice. The edges also help with turning on steep slopes. They are meant for deep snow and icy terrain. They are wider in order to be more stable.

What are the different types of water-skis?


The different types of water-skis are: combination pairs, slalom skis (one ski), and trick skis. Combination pairs are the most popular type and are used by beginners due to the ease of their use. Slalom skis are more advanced than combination pairs, which make them more difficult to learn. Good thing about them is that you can reach a greater speed with them and making sharp turns. Trick skis are used by individuals who want perform all kinds of tricks (jumping, spinning, and other tricks).

Refinish the top side of K2 skis?


If there is major damage that could affect the structure of the ski there is really no one who can fix it and i wouldn't continue skiing on them. If you are just trying to make the skis look nice on top try any oil based cleaner if that doesn't work give them a thin coat of epoxy. why does the condition of the tops of the skis matter anyway?
