Xstar piggy back ballast

Yeah I was just wondering if any company offers a piggy back front and rear ballast system for the gen 2 xstar that fits in the rear and bow compartments and piggy backs off of the factory pumps other than the one from fly high. I know wakemakers also offers their own version too without the isolation valves but I was wondering if any other companies had something to offer. Thanks. David

Is there other companies other than fly high and wake makers?

Jk.

My set up is 750s in the rear and 250s under each front seat. Plumbed with wake makers kits. Works perfectly after timers have been programmed

Yeah I know man. Lol. I have the fly high kit going in now as we speak. My pumps will run until they explode lol so I’m lucky I don’t have to worry about timers. Just remember to shut them off when emptying

@clrussell - I have been in touch with wakemakers a couple times and they say they don't have a specific kit for rear piggy back on the xstar.

In one of those discussions they told me it is the same hardware as the other x-series boats but different length hoses due to the fitting position on the long skinny tanks in the hull and they just haven't put together as a kit yet.

Can you confirm what you ordered from them for your setup?

Thanks
D

Someone must have their head up their a$$ because I'd bet this is the most sold kit they have.

This is for each side no bag.

I would call them. I had a couple questions when I ordered something similar for my 05 X-Star. They will get it straightened out.
