Thanks for the pics and advice everybody. Sounds like I might get the fly high bow 725. It will be plumbed off of the center KGB. My biggest concern was that the sumo bow 500s arms didn't reach as far as they needed to. I guess I was wondering if anybody else had any input on the Sumo bow 725. I like the thought of sumo is because it's only 8 inches high not 12 and would probably push up less on the seats. I do also plan on having a triangle sack of some sort in the bow because I know this isn't enough weight asit is. I have two fly high 750s for the rear tank's. Thanks again.

Check the length measurements of both. I also have a full ballast install thread for a 2001 X-Star if you want to get ideas on how it is done.

What's wrong with the ronix bow sack? that looks to be a good fit other than it might be to long.

I donít think thereís anything wrong with it per se, but if you plan on plumbing it into your existing ballast system, Iím not sure how that would work, whereas fly high most of us know exactly how that works (what fittings to use). Not saying it isnít possible (it probably is), I just donít have much experience with ronix ballast bags/fittings. If you want solid info on those, you might want to give the guys at WakeMakers a call. Theyíll know for sure, and theyíre always glad to help out with any questions you may have.

Fly high has been doing this for so long they really have it nailed. For example, those quick disconnect fittings make it easy for when you need to disconnect to move it or work around it. Again, not knocking Ronix, just not sure about the fittings and other accessories.

I just bought the 350 pound double bag wakemakers kit. Since it does not wrap around the nose I bought a 50 pound lead bag to place under the front bow seat to get me closer to 400 pounds. I was running a 400 pound bag in the walkway so it will be nice to get rid of that and have the extra walking room in my 205v
