    550sx...turf? mat?

    Hey guys,

    so i have a 1991 kawasaki 550sx, she runs like a dream...

    the only problem i have is the mat on the sides in the back are peeling off.
    now if you guys know the 550sx, its NOT like the 550js, where you can just buy a mat-kit and just stick it over the sides.

    unfortunately on the 550sx, its an actual rubber mat/tray....and i cant find the part online anywhere.

    do you guys know what i would have to replace? do they sell a kit for the 550SX?

    Thanks in advance!

    remove the pad and the plastic backing, buy some B stock and cut to shape and size.

    Hydro-Turf is simply the best. Using anything else would be pointless.

    B-stock IS Hydroturf.

    I have heard it done both ways. Some people have turfed over the plastic... some have removed it.

    Re: 550sx...turf? mat?

    When you have everything torn off you should widen the tray. There's a thread on PWCT on how to do it. It's pretty simple. Make a few cuts, add some glass and foam. Nothing has to look amazing because your going to turf over it anyway.
