I did that last year and its all good. You can do it cheap too, if you have the sac's. Plumb the pump hose to the front top port of the bag. Bottom port out to input of stock tank, and back top port to vent out the side. Make sure on the pump lines to attach the anti siphon valves as high as you can because they need to be above the highest water level of the bags. A little hose and a few fittings and you're set. Good luck, its all worth it.

Let me start off by saying that I work for Wakemakers. I predict that another user that is not so biased will chime in, I hope.

I have personally been putting a 750lb. fat sac in the VLX locker since 2005. I have integrated them into the Malibu factory ballast system a couple different ways. The experiments went good and bad, but in the end I learned a lot.

I feel comfortable telling you that the Wakemakers piggyback system works. You are paying for the parts that you need and nothing else. I am not saying this is the best system for everyone. Do your research and choose the system that will work best for you.

well now that i got you is it cheaper to just permanently install the bags instead of using quick disconnects? and what makes the kit $50 dollars per bag for a few connections? this week i am planning on purchasing two 750s and the 1000# for the nose from wakemakers not unless you have a better sugestion for the nose? i have an 07 VLX

It is cheaper to buy the 3/4" hose barb fittings (Fly High W 737 Fittings) ) but they are not elbows which will cause the hose to kink when you close the locker hatch.

The kit comes with the fly high quick release fittings, OEM 3/4" ballast hose, a 3/4" Y fitting, a 3/4" hose barb union fitting, all the hose clamps you need and instructions. We don't charge for the price of the paper so you actually come out ahead.

I usually throw a 750lb. up in the bow and a 400lb. sac in the walk way. The 1000lb. bow sac will be awesome. If you want to integrate the bow bag it is an entirely new ball game. There are a lot more parts to make that one work.

well my problem is i dont have the front ballest tank just the mid built in, so i have no problem pumping one bag up just not 3 bags... on another note should i be ok without the re-porp for now with all that weight? we run 450's in the trunk and 650 in the nose now with not much problem. i just dont want to ruin my drive
