Wow you guys were right I called them and they were ready to help and it looks like it will cost about $400 dollars less than what I could find on the website!

I have installed the fly high kit , rear lockers and front bow sacs a little while ago. Just a quick question . when running everything full , standard ballast and fly high , the boat 2011 x2 porposes around a bit . i have to run the attitude plate down about 50% to stop it , which is probably reducing the size of the wake too. does this happen to everyone , or is there a better way to do it . leaving some bags a bit empty or adding extra weight somewhere . any help would be great .
thanks.

I'm not sure, but I think it will help if you put more weight up front.

Cause the plate puts the noise down a bit so weight up front will help too in my understanding

I wish I could try mine out and provide input but we still have a few months before the ice comes off the lakes

Remember, it is not granted to get a better wake the more ballast you put in. I would recon to play around with different levels of water in the bags to get out the max. Try to fill front and KGB and only fill the rear lockers 3/4 or so. That should get you a better fealing of how your boat reacts. You are than able to adapt the ballast to the needs of the rider also taking into consideration how many people are in the boat...

Just digging this back up for a question.

I know there are custom x2 sacs, however, they are twice the price, compared to generic 400 lb bags.

The dimension are slightly different, but has anyone tried these?

I have the V drive sacs left over from my 02 X Star. They are the wrong dimensions for the rear lockers in the newer (06+) X-2's. In 2012, they blocked off the bow area, so the single front bag no longer works. I plumbed the V drive sacs in up front, and they fill out pretty well in there.

By wrong dimensions you mean completely non useable?

I am just having a hard time paying for $190 dollars each for the X2 rear sacks, when the generic 400 lbs are $199 for 2 bags.

I also found these, which I guess would work. If you do the Math they are 275 lbs each, so 550 lbs total on top of the rear, for 120 dollars.

Do you have a picture of the v drive sacs up front, and can you specify wich sac it is?
