When upgrading the ballast bags do you need to re-program anything? I switched out the 400 pound rear bags with the 750's. When I went to fill the bags they only filled half way or so....Same thing with the center bag. Thanks for any help.

09 has the timer on the pumps. You need to reprogram them. It's in your manual.

It's the 50x20x20 sac. For $10 more you can get the 1100lb sac

There's a tricky little way of reprogramming the 09/10 ballast switches for larger bags. Your dealer should be able to help you out with that, especially if you bought the bags through him. Myself, I just toggle the switches again until the rear bags are full. Good luck

I read the manual and it stated that I need to contact the dealer...I was just wondering if anybody has programmed the ballast system for larger bags themselves...If I cant get it figured out I'll have to toggle it.

I personally like the idea of having the set for 400 and toggling them, that way with your less progressive riders you can only fill to 400 then when you want bigger you just bump them up.

Actually that's a pretty good idea :)

I may just toggle it for now. Truthfully the only reason I got the 750's was for surfing anyway. My skills at wakeboarding are nowhere good enough for 750's anyway.

I like your honesty, too many guys on these boards keep talking about bigger and better, but most I doubt need bigger and better.
