    [How-To-Mod] Salomon boots with multiple soul plates

    This is a general "how-to".

    I will go over everything you need to know to modify your Salomon boots for:
    Deshi/USD Carbon/VII souls
    Razors Genesys souls
    Razors SL souls
    Valo souls
    Remz souls
    TRS souls
    USD dual plates(UFS Throne souls)

    Purpose/reason for this mod:
    Salomons are outdated compared to todays skate technology.
    The design leaves the boot vulnerable to wear and tear.
    Stock Salomon soul plates are rare, therefore almost impossible to purchase new.
    The souls wear out quickly.
    They offer no boot protection.
    There is no backslide plate, therefore very difficult to make a centered groove it the boot.
    They are not symmetrical from heel to toe, meaning unbalanced grinds.

    Tools that are required:
    Utility knife or razor blade where the blade does NOT retract.
    Power drill.
    Several different sized wood bits.
    Forstner bit.
    Counter sink bit.
    Wood chisel.
    Dremil or bench grinder(both would be helpful).
    Pencil.

    Preparing the Salomon boot(READ THIS BEFORE ANY SPECIFIC SOUL MOD):
    All of these mods will require you to remove the two lines of plastic on the positive and negative sides of the under side of the boot. The can be done with a chisel, razors blade, bench grinder or Dremil.
    Bench grinder is easiest. The razor blade or chisel actually gives you a good chance to mess up but will still probably not ruin your boots as this area will most likely be covered anyway.
    Some mods may require you to use a bench grinder, Dremil, razor blade or chisel to shave down the sides of the heel and the front of the boot so that wrap arounds on the souls will fit around the boots.
    Some mods will require you to remove the heel and toe nubs.
    Here is the middle portion removed. You can see the heel and toe nubs left intact:



    (all references are to hard boots. soft boots are little bit bigger so keep this in mind when modding)

    Non-UFS Salomon boots:
    If your boot are non-UFS then they will not have frame bolt receptor holes.You will need to drill these out with a 3/8" bit.You will also have to figure out the best placement for them on your own. I recommend measuring and centering them from front to back. Measure and center your holes between the souls plate screw receptors.
    You can find the distance from hole to hole by simply measuring the frames or souls plates you plan to use.

    Disclaimer:
    I've put every soul plate I could get my hands on and modded my blue ST-8s to fit them in everyway. They were my guinea pigs. This is why you see so many cuts in them!

    Deshi/USDCarbon souls:
    A size small soul fits a size 7 or 8 boot perfectly. I've used a large soul plate on a size 11 boot. Fill in the blank for a size 9 and 10!
    You can also follow this guide for the USD VII souls. Only difference is that VII souls are easier to fit on but the BS plate is about a 1/4" away from the boot. Meaning you will grind a hole in it as it is not supported by the boot.
    This is not too difficult. Though it is time consuming as you have to grind a lot of material off of the soul plates.
    Here is a comparison of before and after:

    As you can see there is a lot of material to be removed.
    I do this with a bench grinder which is the ideal tool.
    You can also use a dremil with a cutting wheel and then use a sanding wheel to smooth it out.

    The best way to be accurate is after you grind out the middle nubs, just bolt the stock Carbon souls to the boot with some long bolts.
    You can then trace with a pencil the areas you will need to grind flat.
    Even after you have finished grinding you may need to grind more in some spots to get a perfect fit.
    It is better to grind out too little at first and keep trying then grinding out too much!

    Now, bolt the souls on as they are and mark with your pencil where you want to cut of the heel and toe of the souls plates.
    Try to match the angle of the heel and toe nubs. This will give you a very nice look. People will think they're the original parts with that fit!
    Or you can skip this and just cut off the heel and toe nubs and let the soul hang over or cut it flush with the edge of the boot.

    You will also want to add some holes for screws though this is not necessarily required.
    It will however prevent the boot from bending under your foot when you do top sides or stride and it will also make you boot stronger and last longer.

    Here is the placement:

    (The screws in the middle of the set of 3 is not necessary. You can get away with just 2 screws on each side in the front)

    You can bolt the soul plate on upside down to the boot and take either a very pointy pencil or something like an awl to poke through the t-nuts in the boot so you know where to drill your holes.
    You want to start off by drilling shallow but deep enough holes that your screws can recess into with a 1/4"-3/8"forstner bit. Basically the same or a little bit bigger than the head of your soul plate screws.
    You can then use a bit just a little bigger that the threads of your soul plate screws.
    If necessary you can use a counter sink bit to shape the holes a little bit like a cone so that your screws sit in a little deeper.
    You may even be able to skip the forstner bit all together. I just like to use them for accuracy of depth.

    Any little snags of plastic left over can be cleaned up with your razors blade or some sand paper.

    Now bolt it all together!


    Razors Genesys souls:
    A size 6-7 soul will fit up to a size 9 boot. If you want wider souls then use 8-9 souls on a 9 boot. But a 6-7 is perfect for a size 8 boot.
    Follow the Salomon prep section at the top. I will mention specifics here.
    You can either remove the heel and toe nubs or you can keep them and cut the souls to fit.
    Your Genesys souls should fit right on. You may need to take your razor blade and cut a small portion out of the heel wrap around to fit snuggly against the side of the boot. You may also need to trim the sides of the boot. Honestly can't remember.
    Bolt the soul plates on with the frame bolts and mark with your pencil where you need to drill holes for your soul plate screws. Use a 1/4" bit.
    You will need some Razors screws and t-nuts.

    BS plates:
    You can either cut a hole in your boot or cut out the back of the BS plate to fit flat against the boot.
    I recommend cutting the BS plate as they only cost $15.
    Your Salomons probably cost more and are considered RARE!
    Rather than using the hole that is there in the BS plate, I would drill 2 new holes on either end of the BS plate. Line it up and drill 1/4" holes in the boot for your t-nuts.

    Screw placement:

    You can cut the the FS groove so that it lines up properly with your frames or the side of the boot.(read on for why the UFS nubs are removed)

    Optional upgrades:
    Razors BS plates do not line up with your frames grooves. Chisel off your UFS nubs on your soul plates and elongate the holes towards the heel so you can slide the whole soul plate forwards.
    If you decide to do this. Do it before you drill any holes for frame screws and before you mount your BS plates!

    You can actually leave the negative soul line if you want for a stock appearance. This can be very tricky to trace and cut though:




    Here is how you would cut the BS plate hole if desired. Also flatten the boot as pictured. You can leave the heel and toe nubs!(The slots are are for the SL mod, they are optional):


    Bolt it all together!


    Razors SL souls:
    A size 6-7 SL soul will fit a size 8 Salomon boot perfectly. Pictured below is a 6-7 soul with a size 7 boot.
    This one can be either very easy or very difficult. Up to you! One thing is for sure. Razors SL souls cost $80. So unless you already have some on had this mod is not practical. But the mid souls should last you a long time and it only costs $40 to replace the sliders and BS plates.
    Grind the bottom of the boot completely flat.
    You will need to trim the sides of the heel area to fit the soul plates. You may also need to trim the sides of the front of the boot a tiny bit.
    You can either cut the tabs off the SL souls(rendering them useless for Razors SL boots) or you can cut slots for the tabs into the sides of your Salomon boots(rendering them really ugly if you decide to use other souls later on).
    Now. Once your boot has been prepared you can bolt the soul plate on. You could be done here but I recommend you continue.
    Mark where you will need to drill holes with a pencil for you soul plate mounts.
    Drill them with a 1/4" bit.
    You will need to shave the back side of the BS plates to fit flush against the boots:

    Now, if you cut the tabs off of your soul plates you will need to put spacers between the souls and the boot next to the frame channel. This will prevent the baseplate from warping when you tighten your soul screws.
    If you left your tabs on then you will need to cut slots in the boot(consider that Salomons are now rare!). This is very tricky. You have to measure carefully for height and width then drill at either end of where each slot will be then cut the rest out with a razor blade. I can't help with measurement. It's just a very tricky, accurate and time consuming process. I don't recommend it. The only reason I did it was because my Salomons at the time cost less than my SL souls and I thought I would want to go back to skating my SL boots(Pffff, yeah right).
    Another thing, you can actually cut the bottom of the boot out along the frame channel if you are going to cut slots for the tabs. Basically making it exactly like the bottom of the SL boot.
    Either way you will want to use the hole that are already in the SL souls to screw them on. If you are only using frame bolts then you will need to screw the sliders right onto the midsoul!

    So you have some options here but you will end up with this look either way:


    Valo souls
    I've used a 7 boot with a 6-7 soul. A size 8 boot may fit in this soul size with some more shaving.
    Flatten the boot entirely. You will need to trim the sides of the heel and front area.
    You need to remove the frame bolt receptors from the souls. You can thread a frame bolt into them then set the soul on the ground and step on it so the bolt pushes the receptor out.
    No take either a chisel and a hammer or a dremil and cut everything out of the inside of the midsoul. You want it to be completely flat.
    Now cut the screw stays of of the souls inserts so that they are flush with the inside of the midsoul.
    Here are some before and after pictures of the soul plates:




    Bolt it on with your frame bolts. You will want to drill some holes in the souls so screw to the boot. You may need to use longer screws as Valo souls are thicker than most.
    Bolt it all together and blade!


    TRS souls
    This is pretty easy! The TRS souls have slightly raised heel but it's not so raised that you worry about shaving it down. You will NOT have to mod your soul plates!
    I used a size 7 boot with a size 7-7.5 midsoul and 7-8.5 inserts.
    Grind the bottom of your boot flat. Shave the sides of the heel and front area as needed.
    You will need to cut a little 1/4" square of plastic or something dense and drill a hole in the middle. This will go between your rear soul insert and the boot.
    It will prevent everything from warping when you tighten it up.
    Put the soul plates on with frame bolts.
    You may drill new t-nut holes in the boot to screw everything together. The heel area will take longer screws.
    Here's how they fit:

    I always cut the toe nub down as it is unnecessarily big.

    Remz souls
    This is really easy. But not very practical as Remz souls are garbage and wear out very quickly.
    I used a 7 boot with 6-7 Remz souls. The 6-7 soul will fit up to an 8 or 9 boot.
    Completely flatten your boot. Shave the sides of the heel area as needed.
    Cut off the half circle piece of plastic on the inside of the heel of the Remz souls so that area is flat.
    Bolt the souls on with frame bolts. You can mark with a pencil where you will need to drill 1/4" holes for soul screws. You will need longer screws for the heel as it is thicker.
    The backslide plate is mounted in the same way as the Razors BS plate. You can either cut out the back of the BS plate or cut a hole out of your boot(keep in mind Salomons are rare!).
    Put it in place and drill a 1/4" in the bottom of your shell and use a Razors/Remz t-nut and screw.
    Screw it all together!


    USD dual plates(UFS Throne souls)
    This is an easy mod.
    Flatten the entire boot except for the toe nubs. Shave the sides of the heel area as needed.
    You will also need to shave the inside of the BS and FS plates to fit around the middle of the boot.
    This is very minimal. I used a chisel and a hammer:

    Bolt it together with frame bolts.
    You will want to countersink some holes for souls screws.
    Put two towards the rear, two right in the middle by the BS plate and FS plate and 2 on the front plate.
    Put it together!




    Enjoy!

              Thanks dude! there's not much attention over there except from the super nerds so figured I'd post here.
              I'll have many more coming soon for a bunch of other mods.

                    Yep. The blue ST-8s that are cut are a 7. I have size 8 ST-8s as well.
                    White BCams with stock liners.
                    I think those are the only ones I will parts with. Keeping my brown ST-8s and black Thompsons.

                      your work is epic. sometimes the only reason for me to visit bemag messageboard.
                      have you tryed to apply some USD7 souls to salomon boots? would like to see that
                      because i'm not sure if i should use carbon souls or the new 7's.

                      also i have a question about converting non ufs-salos to ufs. how do you
                      compensate the difference of height from the UFS-t-nuts inside the boot?
                      last question for now: did the v-cut have any effects, positive or negative?

                        Cool! Thanks!
                        The VII souls will fit easier than the Carbon souls but the BS plates are pretty far from the boot, there is a gap.
                        You can use a forstner bit to countersink you frame bolt receptors. I would only do it in the front since you will have a heel pad in the back and just use a slightly longer bolt.
                        I wouldn't actually v-cut them. I just cut the back level to the sides now. Feels good man.

                          thanks! i already thought about using a forstner bit, but i worried about drilling through
                          the boot as i don't know how thick it is.

                              Which liners fit well in Salomons?

                                Pretty much just Salomon.
                                Some people like Remz liners in them but when I've tried it the toe is so thin so it's painful and the heel doesn't feel right at all.
                                Some Valo and old Cult liners work but nothing beats Salomon liners.

                                  I've used sifika liners in them and they fit really well because their toes are quite thin but all around they fill up the boot nicely

                                    I've tried several and the 310s were tolerable but made them fit a full size tighter.

                                      Nice tutorial j. Only suggestion I would make is to make the mods do less damage to the soles themselves, so that when you replace soles you don't have to repeat the process. Especially with a carbon sole, I have found that if you do the boot right, the sole mods are minimal.

                                      That SL sole is awesome, btw. Good work.

Especially with a carbon sole, I have found that if you do the boot right, the sole mods are minimal.

                                        That SL sole is awesome, btw. Good work.
                                        Missed this entirely!

                                        Well that would be the dream but unfortunately the Salomon boots have some flaws that prevent this. Ideally I would like to be able to just shave all sides of the boot to a uniform thickness so that there is not excess plastic jutting out from the boot. Unfortunately those heel wings are hallow so you can only grind them down so much. I know with Carbon souls that if you use a bigger sized soul you can actually shave the boot down a lot and just bolt the souls on.
                                        But you have to keep in mind. Souls are cheap and replaceable. Salomons tend not to be either of those!

                                                  Is this dremel strong enough for this project?

                                                    aye, or you could go to the auto bodywork shop and ask them if they can sand it down for you 10x quicker.

                                                    (bench grinder business)

                                                    or you could buy dremel grinder bit thats similar to the bench grinder disk just much smaller. mine came with the kit.

                                                        Damn, that thing will stand up against plastic? It won't just ware down like sandpaper? I assumed when I got the dremel I would need to buy a razor attachment but I guess not eh?

                                                          If you're going to use a Dremil you want it to be AC(plug-in). Dremils sort of suck for this honestly. Especially the grinding bit. The plastic just melts to the tool and ruins it in 10 minutes. Use a diamond or thin cutting wheel. A bench grinder is the best tool for the bulk of the work.

                                                            Angle grinder works pretty well too, just make sure your boot is clamped down firmly so it doesn't get away from you. angle grinders can be picked up from discount hardware stores like Harbor Freight (US) for $30-50

                                                              never had a problem, as long as you don't put it on +10000rpm nothing melts, good point about thin cutting wheel only problem is they wear down so quickly.

I have a non-variable speed grinder with a disc that can be used to cut/grind metal and wood. Get the same problem of overheating and melting if I don't take breaks to cool down both surfaces.

                                                                              Literally the most allergic-to-DIY person ever.

                                                                              Comment

                                                                                but...i got some of those plates on the way for my sti's. im am excite

                                                                                  Thanks for the thought by the way - appreciated.
