    How To: GTX/RXT/ Wake Pro Ergolock Knee pads

    Honestly these kneepads are a must. So much more control and comfort when you can pinch on to these suckers or not bang you knee.

    Step 1. Relax.

    Step 2. Open the "hood".

    Step 3. Remove the 2 seat cushions.

    Step 4. Use a small flathead screw driver or motorcycle fork seal removal tool and undo these 3 pins (theres one on the other side as well).



    Step 5: Remove Black center panel.



    Step 6: Remove Torx screw from both sides.



    Step 7: Locate markings where you will drill your pilot hole.



    Step 8: Drill 1/8" pilot holes.



    Step 9: Drill 5/8" holes with step drill bit.



    Step 10: Remove backing paper off knee pads, clean area to lay pads with isopropyl alcohol. (My Knee Pads came f'd..... the one side peeled right off and the other side had old paper or something and I pulled super carefully and it removed the adhesive off all the circled areas )



    Step 11: Carefully line up the alignment foam pins with the holes you drilled. Keep the foam pad curled towards you to prevent the adhesive from sticking where you don't want it.... press down by the pins while keeping the bottom curled slowly start pressing the pad onto the plastic from the top. Repeat on the otherside.



    Step 12: Push down on both sides for a few minutes.



    Step 13: Drink Beer.

    The photo is color corrected. Depending on what display you are using it could look funny but its a light gray. It is the same(almost) as the seat.

    I just ordered a GTX 230 and added the knee pads but I choose black for the knee pads because I wasn’t sure how well they would match the seat. Looking at your picture it looks like the grey knee pads match very well. Are you happy with color of the knee pads on your ski?

    I had the same dilemma! They match very well. If you stick with black.... post pics. I could edit a pic in Photoshop to see roughly what they would look like but I’m still curious.

    Not sure when my ski is coming in hopefully soon (I ordered it at the end of March) but now I am undecided about what color to go with for the pads. If I keep the pads black I will post a picture.

    I like the grey better than the black on your ski
