I am aware of Roonies post, however, it doesnt appear he used the fly high switchable valves and I need part numbers, so that I can buy the fittings, T's and check valves individually.

I already have the 3 expensive switchable valves, I just need everything else.

Can anyone give me a list with part numbers and names?

We have a 2010 X2. I plan to split the fill on the bow bag and vent out the hole in the top, for faster filling time.

Check out wakemakers.com Think they have a parts list. Also you can call Flyhigh and they will walk you through everything. That is what I did when I did mine. I even set my system up differently and they still helped me with parts and advice.

If you're going to follow Roonie's plan exactly here's what you'll need:

Flow Distribution Valves: http://www.wakemakers.com/fly-high-distribution-flow-manifold.html
1" Hose Barb Tee: http://www.wakemakers.com/1-inch-hose-barb-tee.html
1" Elbow Fitting: http://www.wakemakers.com/1-inch-thread-barb-elbow-adapter.html
1" Mastercraft OEM Hose: http://www.wakemakers.com/mastercraft-ballast-hose.html
1" Female Elbow Quick Connect: http://www.wakemakers.com/fly-high-pro-x-series-fitting-w746.html
1" Female Straight Quick Connect: http://www.wakemakers.com/fly-high-pro-x-series-fitting-w741.html
1" Male Quick Connect: http://www.wakemakers.com/fly-high-pro-x-series-fitting-w743.html
1" Stainless Steel Hose Clamps: http://www.wakemakers.com/1-inch-hose-clamp.html

You can pick and choose from the above items if you're modifying the install at all, or if you already have some parts.

Fly High is a good resource, and of course we're happy to answer any questions and help you plan out your system, and we have a little more practical experience than Fly High, so feel free to use us.

I have had excellent service and support from WakeMakers. Not knocking FlyHigh direct, just saying you can not go wrong with WM.

Not sure if you'd seen this thread yet that show an install in a 2008 using the valves:

I know there is also another one that shows the valves mounted in the rear lockers. I think it was Sodar or skeeler maybe in an X-Star.

I know it's not Sodar(has a 197) and I do not believe that is Skeeler's install either. Skeeler's valving is in his locker. I do not remember seeing that on TT, but it does have a ton of information.

Great link!

Skeeler's must be the other one I remember seeing around here.

Thats where I plan on putting ours.

That's the most functional place in my opinion, because they're still very easy to access, but they're not out in the open where people can kick them.

I also thought about putting the valve for the front tank up under the observer seat or in the glove box, out of sight.. I just think its kinda stupid to run a hose from the pump, to the back of the boat and then back up to the front of the boat for the stock fill and then running another hose from the back of the boat to the front for filling the front bow sac... why not just save on the hose and put the valve up front?

Anyone done this?

Check my install:
The difference is that the additional Ballast can be handelt independently from the factory System.
