Axis Plug and Play Rear Factory Ballast Upgrade (2009-2012)
Axis owners that demand the best performance can add more ballast to the rear compartments for wakeboarding or surfing. Not all boats came with the factory plug and play option installed. It doesn't matter because we have you covered either way. The factory option was not complete and didn't get the job done. Our exclusive WakeMAKERS.com Axis ballast plug and play upgrade allows you to add an additional fully automated ballast bag to the factory system. This Axis rear ballast bag and integration kit is designed to integrate with your factory ballast system, and will be controlled using the switches on your dash. Everything remains completely automated and effortless to use. Just push the fill and drain buttons like before and watch your wake increase in size.
NOTE: Our factory upgrade systems are sold Individually so that you can upgrade just one side of the boat for surfing. If you want to upgrade both sides of your boat, you'll need to purchase two systems.

Less Time Waiting, More Time Riding No one wants to sit around filling and draining ballast bags all day, which is why our Plug and Play system integrates with the factory ballast system in your boat, so everything is completely automated. Actual times will depend on the bag size you select, but even the largest option we offer will completely fill or drain in less than 20 minutes, and all without you leaving the driver's seat. And because it works with your factory system, you can fill or drain whether the boat is stationary, or running at speed.
Think Quick For Easy Removal We include our exclusive Flow-Rite quick connect fitting system with every factory ballast upgrade we offer, so you can remove the bag in seconds whenever you want. Thanks to the unique, water-tight, two part connector it's easy to pull a bag out for cleaning, storage or winterization. And when you're ready to go ride just drop it back in place and re-attach the dedicated connections.
How It Works
Our Plug and Play compatible upgrade for Axis boats is designed to make use of the existing pumps, hoses and switches that came in your boat. It's perfectly compatible with both Plug N Play Equipped boats, as well as those Axis models that were not ordered with the auxiliary ballast system from the factory. The factory supplied under floor ballast system offers 250 pounds of capacity on each side of the boat. With our largest capacity bag, you'll have a total of 1,350 pounds of total ballast in each rear corner, allowing you to build a fantastic wake for surfing or wakeboarding.
This kit includes everything needed for the installation, including Ballast Bags and our preassembled adapters, which have quick connect fittings for the integration. As the name implies, this ballast system add-on is connected inline with the factory center ballast tank, allowing it to expand the capacity of the system that came in the boat. In the factory configuration when the in-floor hard tank is full, excess water is dumped overboard through the vent hose.
