I will post some photos of the pumps and the bags TT member tr6coug (Erik) programed the timers for me and they work awesome. Having 4 pumps works well. Check the for sale section I think I saw Erik selling some timers. You need one additional timer you have 3 timers on the boat already. Boat is wired and ready for KGB pump. All you need is the switch and pump.

Thank you for the pictures. It's really appreciated.
I have a bag in my ski locker, not sure the weight.
Does it surf fine w both sides of the bow filled? Thought it was more benefial to have the weight in the bow on the surf side? But I am brand new to surfing and admit my ignorance...!
I have been pleasantly surprised w how helpful everyone has been on this forum. Thx

The bow bag is "U" shaped you can not fill one side.

While surfing fill the back surfside only, ski locker and the bow. X1 likes to be bow heavy. It is not the best surf wake such as X30 but it is OK to have fun. Most ski locker bags are the same long and narrow to fit the space. Bag suppose to hold 370lbs however you can never fill the bag all the way the hatch will keep popping open.
I agree TT folks are bunch of good people with common love for MC.

I never had any luck with just the integrated bow sac up and kgb up front. It just wasn't enough weight to offset the 750s in the back. I switched to the larger open bow triangle, and it made a big difference.

I don't know what prop you are running, but you made need a new prop if you upgrade the ballast. My stock prop was a 14x20 and the boat took forever to get on plane. I switch to a 14.25x14.5 OJ, and it's much better.

If the bow triangle is already full, I will leave it up there for surfing. It keep the corner of the platform from dragging and causing the wake to wash. If it isn't full, I usually don't worry about it. It doesn't seem to make a huge difference.

This is what we are doing for beginner wake to wake behind a 2002 x-star. My wife has no desire to go faster than 20 mph. So we shortened the total rope length to 44.5 feet including handle. No ballast. Very nice wake. Now that my 8 year old son is starting to learn wake to wake we do the same set up. The only difference is we move some people to the side he is jumping on. This flattens his landing wake out to prevent nasty falls. I find it to be a great beginning wake. My wife has been skiing this wake for years. I hop on it sometimes to try to a new trick without taking the harder falls.

Are you using the thin wake boarding cable line? Does anyone know how I can shorten that type of rope? I haven't tried but not sure if I can tie a loop in that type of line. The shortest it goes is to 60'...

We had an old wakeboard rope we tied loops in, it wasn't a cable style or coated line. It stayed looped good
