    Default Added IBS

    I added an IBS to my LSV this week and tried it out today. It works great. The lake was crazy rough, but I could tell for sure it lengthened the wave for surfing. I'm looking forward to trying it on the calm river this week with the wakeboard and surfing.

    I have the reversible pumps so I tied the IBS into the vent line from the center bag and replaced the 3/4 drain with 1 inch hose. I also added check valves all around. System filled and drained great. Thanks for the advice Mike and Drew.

    That double check valve system is key! Glad you like it.

    Sweet man awesome,

    Be careful running the IBS with no rear weight, the nose dives down a lot, but for wake boarding most of my riders prefer ski locker and IBS only and wake plate 100%.

    Wave cleans up real nice at 21

    Like i said MY riders, that doesn't mean everyone likes it lol.

    We used to only have the factory 1200 we ran that but now that i run 3K + most dont want the wave that big, they like it 1050 up front LOL

    In my 02 I am running locker full and a 750 bag sitting right on top of it. Wakeplate 100% looking to add more weight this year though. Probably going to do some lead in the front and some rear weight.

    Did you add 2 check valves? Both sides of the vent Y?

    So I know I'm comparing apples to oranges here but is there a way to keep the wake big behind the lsv but mellow it out a little. I am running IBS, 400 locker, and 1100's in the back only 75-80% full. I really like the size of the wake but man is it peaky at the top and a lot of the time I feel out of control when I hit it. It is a really hard pop that sometimes kicks me into a funky position.

    I have ridden behind the Super Air 230 and G23 and they have a much more mellow wake even thought its way bigger. I am thinking this is just a characteristic of the hull design.

    I think you have too much weight on the back of the boat. LSV like more weight in the front to get a good transition. Maybe try to put fat sac over the ski locker.......not too much on the back

    Weight distribution should be 60% on front, 50 % rear.........it is how I like the wake
