Anyone have pics of these racks installed.

sbt3 08-02-2007 10:53 AM

no but I was on a boat with that setup last night and they are pretty sweet.

larrys 08-02-2007 10:56 AM

Did he have 2 or 4?

wakeslife 08-02-2007 10:57 AM

I was on a VLX this morning with that setup and they are really nice racks. Just slide in this big pin and they pretty much swivel around by themselves. Super smooth and easy, and they look great on the illusion.

Larry, I have a buddy with them. If I remember I'll try and snap some pictures this weeekend.

jam76 08-02-2007 12:07 PM

I have them on my boat. There are some pics on my page at Wakesides. Mine don't have any pin to pull out?? just push the button in and they swivel around. <BR><a href="http://www.wakesiderides.com/rides/index.php?page=out&amp;id=2394" target="_blank">http://www.wakesiderides.com/rides/index.php?page=out&amp;id=2394</a> <BR> <BR>(Message edited by jam76 on August 02, 2007)

he only had one pair. The only complaint I had is he has them mounted on the lower holes and the rope constantly gets caught on the boards when you are picking up a downed rider. I think they will be fine if they get moved to the top holes.

wakeslife 08-02-2007 12:30 PM

Jam - by pin I meant that buttonish looking thing that you push. And I totally agree with sbt3, the rope got stuck a couple times on the boards so I would mount them on the higher holes.

jam76 08-02-2007 12:36 PM

Yep I agree the rope is always getting caught but on the upper holes you will have issues if you have the Metcraft bimini top. I have the extended one and to clear it I had to mount them on the lower mount.

gwnkids 08-02-2007 4:07 PM

Jam I like the look of that extended bimini. Does it store well or do you need to take it apart

They're sick love em <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/484419.jpg" alt="Upload">

The only problem I have is they barely touch my tower speakers when they swivel around. I just don't swivel them all the way around.

tyboarder03 08-02-2007 5:35 PM

That is the exact reason why we put ours on the lower mounts. If you don't have speakers no biggy otherwise you're SOL up top really. And the rope has yet to cathc on anything in the racks or the racks themselves, with the exception of my 06 Byerly/can opener.

ord27 08-02-2007 6:50 PM

do yalls swivel on their own <BR> <BR>a friend has them (i think that's them) on his 'Bu and I got hit in the head a few times while just cruisin <BR> <BR>I put just stock racks on mine <BR> <BR>might upgrade eventually

tyboarder03 08-02-2007 7:26 PM

Nope they only swivel when I want them to.

ord27 08-02-2007 7:28 PM

ord27 08-02-2007 7:36 PM

Are you running the 383?

ord27 08-02-2007 8:08 PM

yup <BR>had to go with the hammerhead <BR> <BR>my dealer warned me that on resale I would not get anything out of it <BR> <BR>but <BR> <BR>I love it <BR> <BR>it does put out some exhaust <BR> <BR>I hear that the cat manifolds are offered on the '08 hammerheads <BR> <BR>I asked them yesterday if I could upgrade the manifolds <BR> <BR>he said that he needed to make sure that the engine box is the same size as my '07

tyboarder03 08-02-2007 8:13 PM

hmmmm no need to reprop the 383 huh nice boat man. <BR> hijack over

larrys 08-02-2007 8:28 PM

Cliff, <BR> <BR>What do you mean "put our some exhaust"? Sound or what? <BR> <BR>I just ordered an '08 w/HH and CATs. Can't wait!

ord27 08-02-2007 9:14 PM

the hh has a great sound <BR>and that cam can sure be felt at idle! <BR> <BR>but without the cats....the exhaust smell is pretty strong <BR> <BR>I hope to be able to add the '08 cats to mine <BR> <BR>and Tyler, I did reprop...with the acme 1235 <BR>that thing now would pull a house out of the water! <BR>It did go from a 53 top end to around 44 mph

ord27 08-02-2007 9:16 PM

well....top end being 5000rpm <BR>I haven't pushed it past that...and probably wont <BR> <BR>Larry your gunna love it! <BR> <BR>the new gas station down the street is selling regular for $2.68 <BR>the boat is on "e" , guess I'll take advantage while the price is still "low"
