View Full Version : X-2 (2007)

My friend has 07 X-2 and wants to add more weight. He is currently running the factory with the (2) 450lbs in the lockers and the 650 up front. What should he do next? Can you remove the rear hard tanks and put 750's? What about adding a long bag in the middle of the floor in the walk through?

I purchased the tube sac from wakemakers and use it on the port seating area for surf and in the walkway. 375# and easy to use.

I have installed the customized fat sac system form fly high and the wake gets a lot bigger... But the boat struggles a lot more as well ( 5.7 liter engine 330 hp )

Honestly don't think adding any more than what you have will do much on the '06 above X2. We have stock plus the X2 450's in the rears and add a tube 350# in the walkway. If I fill my rears to 100% the boat will porpoise a bit and riders complain the wake is starting to curl over. I have found that the rears at 80% with this set up is about as good as it will get.
The X2 does like some weight in the front like about 40% front to 60% back ratio. In most cases have at least one person in the bow.

for wakeboarding: i run full stock plus 400s on either side of the back with the integrated bow sack full
for surfing: i empty on side of the rear and take that 400lbs bag and fill it on teh seat of whatever side we're surfing on

I also have the high fly upgrade for my 07 x2, you may need to change the prop if the boat is struggling with the weight. I am using a 14 x 14 (forget the exact dimensions) prop with the MCX with out issue when loaded.

For surfing: I removed the port back factory tank and connected a fly high 1100#, under front port seat I fill a BigBag 350# and fill the two other hard tank. Usuallly we are 2 to 4 adults.
I had an issu with plastic panel that was curving and almost touching the manifold. I screw a bracket in the middle down there that solved the problem.
The surf wave is huge and is shaped when playing with the speed. So in a second we can modify the ride of the surfer. Playing with speed between 10mi/h to 12 mi/h. Really satisfied with this setup. Can ride small boards without flotability issues. Not using the attitude plate for more than testing if I would need more weight up front. Using the plate cost more on gaz since it create friction in the water. Propeller ACME 1285 (14.5x14.25V L Spline). Ride cost: 15 liters/h.
Since I am still setup mode, the port back side pump fill both bags. I changed the 6 min timer for a 20 and I fill both bags in 15 min. I installed a 'Y' at the pump to have both bags independently. There is a on/off valve for each bag. I fill both in same time and close the valve on the 350# when full. I drain all in same time in around 10 min when the boat is running.
