    Heat from a hair dryer for 10-15 min, then pop them out. Wakemakers has a great video on their site.

    My bags were not glued from the factory. I think the heat from the engine was heating the fitting on the v drive bags and they would pop out to the bags after an hour or so on the water.

    Then I glued them and have had no problems since.

    Are you talking about the threaded adapter popping out from the bag or the quick release fitting from Fly High with the little red clips?

    The plastic threaded adapter was popping out from the bag's threaded insert. After a couple of times the threads were marred a bit and seemed to pop even more often.

    A small amount of PVC cement and the fittings have never popped out again.

    I wonder if its a design flaw on Fly Highs part, since a threaded coupling should never be able to pop straight out, unscrew is a different issue.

    you actually "pop" out the ones that are glued in from the factory ofter you heat them up a bit with a hair dryer.

    Hmmm one would think that would ruin the threads on the bags? No?

    only when one makes the mistake of using a heat gun instead of a hair dryer and leaves it pointed at the bag until their daughter asks, "Is it supposed to be smoking?"



    BTW - I have a factory bag for sale. CHEAP!

    Reviving this older thread.... I got my bag inserts today ( I chose not to try and remove the ones from the factory bags until I had spares). I started off just trying to thread them in, then went to the tape. I read somewhere here that o-ring seal is a good idea. I didn't have that but the tsunami pump connection that came with the sacs had some grease on there rings so I applied a bit of that to the o ring and screwed it in. Now here is the weird part.... I tightened the bottom valve but it turns indefinately ( like its stripped) but I don't feel it resetting as I would expect. I filled the bag with air and tested with soapy water (no bubbles = no leaks). I am waiting for the weather to clear up so I can really test them but it just seems odd to me that I can keep turning this by hand...

    Anyone experience this? Any ideas?

    Thanks,
