looking to add two rear ballast sacs to my 2007 x-2 and I'm curious as to whether or not I can fit a 750lb sac in the rear compartment and still close it.

I have the 455 lb sacks in my '08 and the fill out nicely. While there is a little extra room, I wouldn't see near an extra 300 lbs worth. I also have the integrated bow sac up front. With all three sacs the wake is a significant improvement over stock.

Make sure you don't leave the extra bags full when you empty the factory tanks. i think this can lead to cracking the factory tanks. I always empty my extra bags before I empty the factory ones just to make sure all the weight isn't sitting on a hollow tank.

alright thanks guys. i have a skylon 500 lb sac that just kinda sits inbetween the drivers seat and the spotters seat but I'm hopefully going to swap that for the bow sac soon

Besides the dedicated x2 sacks, has anyone tried the standard 400 lb bags?

They are a lot cheaper.

I ripped out the stock rear hard tanks and used the existing plumbing for 750lb bags. Installed a false panel above the bag and still have 12" or so of storage.

Also added 2-400lb bags to the front in addition to the hard tank. All plumbed using existing pumps.

How well do the 750's fit without the hard tanks?

Not sure if anyone is still wondering… I have 750's on top of my hard tanks in my 06 and the lockers close fine.

The 750's are fine if you don't overfill. If you do they will put pressure on all sides of the locker and could cause some damage. I didn't find much of a difference in the wake from the 455 bag. The 455 is sized to fit the locker and you don't have to worry about damaging anything. I went back to the 455 bag (piece of mind). The 400 bag is cheaper, but is not sized right. Too long and too short. We often put some addition weight (400 bag) on the seat, when we do not have any human ballast.

Pictures would be nice if you have them :)
