hey guys, just got my 750 fat sacs in and just wanted to make sure i hook these up right. I took the stock 400's out which have a fill and an empty. The 750's have 3 holes. I'm guessing fill, drain, vent? I want to hook these up to my pump system. Do the quick connects unscrew out of the old 400's and into the 750's and if so do they go drain bottom, fill top, and plug the hole on the top middle of the bag? Thanks

The quick connect fittings on your factory bags should screw right into the new bags.

My 750's are setup with the bottom hole, towards the rear of the boat, to the drain pump. The top front hole is my fill hose. Both of these are quick connects. I use the quick-unscrew cap to burp air from the bag, and have it on the top rear hole.

My 750 bags have holes at both ends on top, but no hole in the middle anywhere.

Hope this helps.

I'd recommend ordering new quick disconnects.. 2 reasons!
1 Old ones are Glued in and a pain to get out
2. That way you can switch back and forth between if you want!

IF you want to remove them, let me know and I'll explain as Fly High told me how to do it..

Most of our customers go the new fitting route, and the ones that didn't wish they did. :)

We're going to put a post up on our blog with pictures of the process for removing cemented in fittings though, as this question comes up often enough. Stay tuned for more info.

Why do they wish they had gone with the new ones, did they have problems? My fittings came out of my old bags easily and into the new ones fine. I just haven't used them yet.

A lot of people have problems getting their existing fittings out, even after we clue them in on how to do it (usually they're trying to unthread them, which is nearly impossible).

the fittings on my '06 were not cemented in. they just unscrewed.
