I've currently got 750's in the lockers and there seems to be some head room to spare. Any one put the 1100s in there? I'm looking to improve my surf wake. I was thinking running the 1100 in the locker and repurpose the 750 to the bow seat and maybe run it about #300 with a full stock KGB. Thanks.

I haven't but am interested in the answer. Is your 750 causing the panel between the locker and engine to warp? Mine is and wondering what another 350# would do.

the #750 pushes the door in to the exhaust manifolds a bit. i added a some renforcement but i'm like you and wondering if the #1100 will make the door collapse on the exhaust manifold.

DIfferent boat, but the concept is the same. My 750s were pushing the door into the exhaust manifolds, so I added 2 stainless rods on each side for supports. I followed p-hat's thread from here:

Thanks for the link but the pictures weren't showing for me. Any chance you have pictures of your install?

They work fine for me, but here are the ones I copied from the wakeboarder.com post.

Ah, perfect, thanks much. Those are really helpful. No pics for me still... just one more thing to troubleshoot. :(

Talked to Wakemakers and ended up ordering an 1100. They're thinking it'll fill to about 1000 lbs as the X30 is a bit narrow for the 24" bag. Will update once I get it.

I use the 1100# in a 2007 X2. It fills all available room in the locker and under the back sit. Mine is the one from wakemakers, if I remember the size is 50"x24"x24". Take care there is two flyhigh 1100# on the market (I think the other one is 60x24x20). It is not important if the bag is not full the important is the room full :-)

I reenforced the black panel. I bought the bag and started using it over the factory tank (last year). A mount a go I removed the hard tank to solve the draining issues.

hey SpryBeast. how'd the 1100's turn out?

Sorry, forgot to update. I've only been out once since I got the new bag but it fits great. Fills the width fully (the locker's not quite wide enough) and comes nearly to the top with the locker closed.

I bought the materials to reinforce the panel but haven't done the work yet. Even with the 1100 full for a few hours the panel looked pretty good so I may actually punt on that project for a while.

Not surprisingly we noticed that we needed a bit more weight up front than with the 750.

Hows your surf wave now? How far under water is your rub rail? Surf speed?
