Does anyone know, off the top their head, how many lbs of ballast comes with the

2008 X-15?

I have 3 ballast on my screen that fill up. One in the middle and 2 in the back on either side.

I appreciate the help!

I believe the port and star ballasts are 750's and the KGB is 500.

Thanks, Scott. So a total of 2000 lbs? I just got a new surfboard yesterday and haven't had a chance to surf behind my boat so today is the day! I am guessing that 2k #'s will be enough to surf with?

You would think that MC would list that on their site but I can not find it.

Yea, I was in the same boat, no pun intended.

I just called texas MC and the guy there said the following:

Port: 300#
Starboard: 300#
KGB: 350#

Total: 950#

So that # is a little different than the number Scott gave. I wonder what it REALLY is! hah

On my 2010 x-15 I had thought it was Port and Starboard were 300 but KGB was 500, so a total of 1100. I added a 450 in the port locker to help with surfing because I usually have my kids and their friends that don't add up to much, so it helps. We had a great summer of surfing last year though with just stock.

Sorry lane, my memory must have been off. Could have sworn those were the #'s given to me when I was looking at an X-15 in '08.

i think the lower numbers are closer. 500 in the kgb seems like a lot for a stock ballast.

lanep is right. Stock ballast in any of the MC's I've seen is nothing to write home about!
