So took the boat out yesterday, and was filling the rear stbd and port ballast tanks, stock KGB setup. The port filled quickly and the overflow spat out water, but the starboard never did. I know it had water, because when emptied a lot of water came out. Any ideas what could be causing this issue?

Thanks

what year boat? is the timer cutting out on your starboard side preventing you from filling up all the way?

More info on what boat it is, but start with looking at the impellers. Black ones and yellow ones are more finicky than the newer green ones.

It is a 2002 X-Star, so there are no timers. I know the pumps have the yellow impellers, but the port and center tanks fill, overflow, and empty normally, and the stbd fills and empties normally. The only problem is it never overflows. Could the overflow line be blocked? I would prefer to avoid buying new impellers until the end of the season, which I plan on doing.
