WakeMAKERS 2003-2011 Mastercraft X-Star PiggyBack Rear Factory Ballast Upgrade
WakeMAKERS exclusive Factory Ballast Upgrade Kits are built and designed to unleash the full potential of your MasterCraft boat. It takes more than just the factory ballast system in order to build an impressive wake. After all, we all want the best wake on the lake. A better wake is proven to make for a more enjoyable wakesurfing and wakeboarding experience.
Our aftermarket ballast solutions increase the overall capacity of your boat's factory ballast system for improved performance while keeping the convenience of controlling all ballast with the switches at your dash. The ballast bags included in your Factory Ballast Upgrade are integrated into your boat's existing ballast system for automated filling/draining.
This upgrade kit "piggybacks" the included WakeMAKERS FIT Series ballast bags in this kit that are placed in the rear lockers on top of the factory hard tanks. The additional ballast bags are integrated into the rear factory ballast tanks for an automated fill/drain process. The rear zone of the boat is the most important spot for additional weight, helping to increase the size of your MasterCraft's wake. The increased capacity of your factory ballast system helps to further displace the boat's hull in the water and creates a sizeable improvement.
The WakeMAKERS FIT Series ballast bags included in your kit is specially chosen for your year, make, and model MasterCraft boat to achieve the optimal fit. Our team of ballast experts have dug in the boats, measured the rear lockers, and selected the proper fitting FIT Series bag so that you get the best results. A better fitting ballast bag helps to maximize the bag's capacity, make an easy installation process, and ensures a smooth fill/drain process.
Every WakeMAKERS Factory Ballast Upgrade is designed to be a user-friendly DIY install that can be completed in your garage over the course of an afternoon. Don't want to do a self-install and would rather take your boat to a professional? These upgrades can be completed by your local WakeMAKERS certified boat service center.
