Kawasaki Elite Traction Mats JS300 / 440 / 550 1982-1989
BlackTip Jetsports Elite traction mats are unlike anything the PWC industry has ever seen. With more color and pattern choices available than ever before. With the Elite series you are in control. You are no longer limited to pick from just the standard cuts and colors. You pick your pattern and then pick the top color and bottom color of your mats. The bottom color will show through when we finish cutting the pattern for your specific watercraft. The Elite series mats are made from the same high quality material as our standard mat kits and also include our high strength PSA.
If you should have a problem, please contact SBT @877.330.0231 or sales@sa;es@SBT.com to identify your issue.
Removal of original glue down mats:By hand, peel off any old mat material that you are able to and then you use a putty knife to help remove all material from the difficult areas. Areas that are difficult may require spraying WD-40 brand lubricant in between the mat and hull to help loosen the old adhesive. Take your time on the prep work; this is important to achieve professional results.
Now that your surface is clean and ready for the new mats it is time to lay out how your mats will look in the foot wells. This is the location the mats will be attached. Trace around the mats using a pencil. This is your reference area to place the mats after the paper is peeled off the back of the mat.
Peel off the paper backing from the mat and line up one end of the mat to your traced out area. (Do Not Try to Install the complete mat in one shot) Slowly work the mat down into your outline.
After the entire mat is installed you must apply even pressure down on top of the mat to insure complete contact to the hull.
Let mats sit for 12 hrs after the install so the glue will fully cure.
