1100lb sacs in X30

Hi Bohmer410, I was wondering if you might be able to post some pics of your 1100lb fats acs filled in the rear lockers. I have a 2004 X30 and I'm getting ready to do an overhaul on the ballast system and bags. I've seen various posts about the 1100lb bags, some say they fit others say they don't, and even others say you can't fill them all the way. Just curious if yours fill completely and how the divider between the locker and engine is impacted.

Thanks for any help you can provide. I'm going to be adding the IBS bag as well and keeping the stock ski locker bag. I'd love to put the IBS on its own dedicated pump and switch, but not sure how difficult this would be with venting, etc.

I have the same boat but went with the 900, I also fill the KGB locker.

Takes about 30 minutes to pull the stock tank and put bag in

What make of bags did you go with? I've seen a couple different brands (i.e. sumo, ronix, etc) but FlyHigh doesn't appear to sell them.

How's the surf wake with the 900's? Any pics you'd be willing to share of the bags and wake?

Thanks.

I don't have any pictures of them full. I'll take on the next time I'm out. Which might be two weeks away, I have a couple of wedding to go to.

They don't fill up completely, I would guess around 950 or so. I thought if I purchased the 750's I would eventually pull them out and put in the 1,100's later. Since there wasn't much of a price difference, I would just go with the 1,100's.

I have not reinforced the wall. It hasn't bowed or anything. At least yet, I've had 1,100's for one season. I've seen people reinforced them. It doesn't look hard to do. I'm going to hold out until it needs it.

For IBS, I would do a piggyback system off the ski locker.

I would highly recommend, adding two 1 inch thru hulls and removing the manifold. Then run 1 inch hose while your redoing it.

I like the 1 inch premium hose from wakemakers, but you'll need a lot of hose. I believe I used 60 feet. Also, I had better luck with lowe's check valves compared to wakemakers valves.

This year we have been to Cumberland, dale hollow, cave run, East fork, Norris and the river. We go to Cumberland most of the time. Then the river on the off weekends, since it's 15 mins away. How about you?
