Does the X star have manual shut off valves for each ballast tank? If so where are they. I was looking all over in the engine compartment, rear lockers, and tranny area and could not see any valves.

one valve on port side
remove your port side panel and look between engine and stringer

My 08 has 2 inlets with shut off valves, both beside/under the engine on the port side, one for the rear tanks, one for kgb.

I will check again, but I swear I saw nothing.. I assume they are somewhat accessible.

Well, guess you are talking about a valve to close the tank (each) tank, I was talking about a valve behind every trough hull...

It is: lake => trough hull => valve => pump => tank and vice versa...
