I've got 3 brand new yellow impellers that I've had for a year. Tried them once and was not impressed. I bought the green one - which definately have a higher durometer than the yellow ones but not quite as high as the black ones. I'll sell you the yellow impellers if you want them.

Update - it's still raining in Seattle and therefore have not had the boat in the water. It's elevated about 3 feet above the water on it's lift. Spring always sucks around here. Hopefully I'll get the boat out on Saturday or Sunday in between my son's baseball game, football tryouts and my daughter's tennis practice.

Thankfully there is no sports during the summer. Everything ends mid June and it's time to hit the water and teach the kids (mine are ages 9 and 7) to ski and wakeboard. We'll also get some tubing in also. Gotta luv tubing behind the X-30 with an L-18 engine. Those little guys can barely hang on.

I have an '09 X2 (KGB?), dealer replaced the yellow impellers with the green to fix the siphoning problem. I have been out twice this year, no siphoning and seems to fill and drain much faster! Dealer mentiond the green ones were slightly taller??? Can't confirm since I did not complete the switch. I am keeping the yellow ones for back up! So far so good!

Ok, I finally made it out yesterday and filled the ballast using the new green impellers with my polished insides of my pumps. Everything worked great. I will keep my black impellers for backups.

Excuse my ignorance. Whats MTS?
I am having circuit braker trips with my X7 bag tank and green impellor has been suggested as a fix.

I believe MTS stands for MasterCraft Training System. It is a hard tank that hold apprximately 180lbs of water. It is located under the bow of PS190s to simulate a person sitting in the observers seat to balance the boat out during a ski run.
