For my front bags I used what they call the V drive bags - W701 which are 42"x16"x16". The X2 rear bags are 32"x18"x20". You could use the V drive bags back there, they just won't fill in completely.
Here's a picture of the V drive bags filled up front: http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...573#post945573

It's a little long, but I'd say it's at least 80% full, if not 90%.

I'm installing a piggy back bag in the port rear locker on an 09 X2, and I can't get the overflow fitting off the hard tank to install the 90 degree elbow fitting included in the Wagemakers kit. I tried a heat gun to "warm" up the existing fitting, then used channel locks, with no success. The existing fitting is plastic, and the channel locks kind of squeeze it to the point I can't get a good grip to turn. Don't want to bust it and have pieces fall into the hard tank. Any suggestions?

Did you already destroy the straight fitting that's currently in the tank?

If not, I would just reuse it. I had a hell of a time getting mine out when I plumbed in the overflow kit this spring. I ended up destroying the piece and had to bust it up into pieces to get it out. Luckily it was just a few larger pieces, so nothing went in the tank.

Thanks Ccelia, good to hear I'm not the only one that is experiencing this stubborn fitting. I didn't destroy that fitting, so I'll just hook up the bag fill line to that and see how it works.
