I am having trouble with my 06 xlv ballast system. My bags are filling at the same time. I have trouble shot the switch problem, and am still having trouble with each valve closing completely. Can I repair or clean these valves out to make them operate properly or do I need to buy new valves?

So you checked the little black levers on the valves and they are in the correct position?

Yes, you can take them apart and see if there is any debris causing them not to fully close, or you can go to HD and buy new ones for around $10 each.

Fixed my problem of ballast filling while under way !


I just shut the ball valve before the fill pump ! Guess it's not a fix but it will do for now.....LOL

That's what I did. I had mine apart 3 or 4 times and just finally replaced the sucker. Works fine now :)
