Increase the capacity of the ballast system in your Centurion wakeboard boat by replacing the factory ballast tanks with our TankBuster factory ballast system upgrade.


Tired of the above floor factory hard tanks in your Centurion wakeboard boat taking up too much storage space and not offering enough ballast? Replace them with the WakeMAKERS TankBuster ballast system upgrade 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.

The most popular setup is to add an additional 720lbs. of ballast to your boat's factory ballast system. Select the bag that works the best for your application.

The WakeMAKERS TankBuster Wakesurf 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.

Centurion TankBuster

How It Works
The Centurion TankBuster Ballast System Upgrade takes the place of the existing factory hard tank installed in either the rear locker or in the mid ship of V-drive Centurion wakeboard boats. Once installed, the new 720lb. LBS Ballast Bag 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 an additional 500 pounds of wake building capacity. Additionally, when the bags are empty, the entire rear locker is usable space, dramatically increasing the amount of storage 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, adapters to connect to your boat's factory system, and step-by-step instructions.

Once installed, the three ports on the new Ballast Sac are connected to the fill, drain and vent hoses from the factory ballast system, making the Centurion TankBuster a direct replacement. For convenience, Fly High Quick Connect fittings are used allowing you to easily remove the bag for cleaning, storage or winterization. Triple the capacity, double the storage space, all controlled using the factory dash switches makes the TankBuster the perfect ballast upgrade for your Centurion wakeboard boat.

The installation process is incredibly simple, completely reversible, and only has to be done one time to use the TankBuster system. Removing the factory tank and installing the new TankBuster bag typically takes a couple of hours to do both sides of the boat, so plan on leaving yourself and afternoon for the project.

  1. Step 1: Locate and identify fill and vent hoses at the top of the factory ballast tank. The fill hose will come from down in the bilge of the boat, while the vent hose will go directly from the ballast tank to a fitting in the side of the boat.
  2. Step 2: Remove the drain pump from the factory hard tank by unthreading it.
  3. Step 3: Remove hose clamps securing the factory fill, vent and drain hoses to the hard tank located in the rear compartment.
  4. Step 4: Remove factory "L" brackets used to secure ballast tanks to the floor of the boat.
  5. Step 5: Remove the factory hard tank from the boat and retain in a convenient storage location.
  6. Step 6: Insert pre-assembled fill and vent hose extensions into the factory fill and vent hoses and secure with the provided hose clamps.
  7. Step 7: Attach the pre-assembled drain pump adapter to the factory drain pump.
  8. Step 8: Secure all Quick Release connectors on the ends of the fill hose extension, vent hose extension and drain pump adapter to their appropriate connections on the new ballast bag.
  9. Step 9: Test system for correct, leak-free, operation.

This TankBuster system is designed to work with any Centurion v-drive wakeboard boat that has hard b

You will need to purchase two systems if you want additional ballast on both sides of the boat for wakeboarding or surfing regular and goofy.

    Perfect upgrade kit!
    Kristopher Vassallo

    This kit super simple to get installed. I replaced the factory hard tanks on a 2003 avalanche with this kit and it came with everything I needed to connect all the hoses. I didn't have to go looking for adapters or anything, they were all in the box :) As an added bonus, I now have the entire compartment to store stuff in when the bags aren't full. The bags are heavy duty and the seams look like they'll be lasting quite a while.

    Excellent fit, great quality, fast shipping
    Julien Larouche

    I have a Centurion Avalanche C4 2007. My stock ballast was 209 lbs left and right side. I bought a ballast system update of 1100 lbs with Fly high.
    There is no comparison between my stock ballast and the new one. The wave is HUGE and it makes a big difference to surf.
    Very good product and great quality.
    YOU have to change your factory ballast for a bigger one.... !!
    The kits is very easy to instal and it has everything you need.

    Had everything I needed to set up the sac

    Ordered 2 of the 1,100lb TankBuster kits for my 2008 Centurion Enzo 240. The kit included everything I needed to set it up completely and it only took a few hours to remove the hard tanks and install the new lines. Great value for the money.

    Easy to install, great price and a great setup

    I replaced my hard tank on the port side with a 750lb bag and wow what a difference. I'm getting ready to do the other side next so my "goofy" freinds can ride the other side. Shipping is fast and the it's an easy install.

    Great plug and play product!!

    Excellent customer service and very helpful advise from the Wake experts. First off, the package arrived exactly when they said it would. Second, I am very impressed on the quality and toughness of the sacs and the ease of installation. The package had everything needed for a straight forward install. Thanks to the expert team at WakeMakers we are surfing ropeless.

    Great system package and very helpful staff

    I purchased a fly high 1100# with the tank buster factory ballast upgrade, and found that the kit was easy to install with the instructions provided. The staff was very knowledgeable and answered my question regarding routing the drain line to the opposite side so it doesn't drain.

    I would definitely recommend wakemakers to people.
