  • Malibu Tankbuster Factory Rear Ballast Upgrade

    What it is: Malibu Tankbuster Factory Rear Ballast Upgrade

    The WakeMAKERS Malibu TankBuster Wakeboard Ballast System is designed to integrate with your factory ballast system easily, be controlled using the switches on your dash, and not require any additional effort to fill and drain. Are you tired of the above floor factory hard tanks in your Malibu wakeboard boat taking up too much storage space and not offering enough ballast? Then the Malibu TankBuster factory ballast system upgrade is your solution. Replace the factory hard tanks with our Malibu wakeboard ballast system to create a massive wakesurfing or wakeboarding wake. Instantly triple the ballast capacity in each rear corner, while at the same time restoring full use of the lockers for storage when you don't need the biggest wake possible.

    For Use In:

    This TankBuster system is designed to work with any Malibu v-drive wakeboard boat that has hard ballast tanks that installed above the floor in the rear lockers. That includes, but is not limited to, the following models:

    • 2005-08 Malibu vRide
    • 2002-04 Malibu Wakesetter VLX
    • 2002-04 Malibu Wakesetter LSV

    Bag Size and Dimensions:

    • 400lbs - 42" x 16" x 16"
    • 750lbs - 50" x 20" x 20"
    • 1,100 - 50" x 24" x 24"

    Where it goes:

    The Malibu TankBuster Ballast System Upgrade takes the place of the existing factory hard tank installed in each rear locker of certain Malibu wakeboard boats. Once installed, the new ballast sac is controlled completely from the driver's seat, and uses the factory pumps and plumbing. Everything functions exactly the same as it did from the factory, but you've added a significant amount of capacity. Additionally, when the bags are empty, the entire rear locker is available, dramatically increasing the amount of storage space for gear and equipment. This kit includes everything needed for the installation, including a new ballast bag and the necessary Fly High quick connect fittings.
