EXCLUSIVE WakeMAKERS 2001-2004 Malibu Wakesetter VLX TankBuster Rear Factory Ballast Upgrade
You purchased your Malibu to have fun and make memories on the water with family and friends. Quite simply, the factory 250 pound rear ballast tanks your boat came equipped with will not offer enough capacity to generate what most owners would consider a "good" wave for surfing.
The solution is our exclusive TankBuster Factory Ballast Upgrade Kit that is designed to unlock the hidden potential of your Wakesetter VLX to build an amazing wave. Correctly weighted, and with a surf device, these boats will generate an amazing wave that everyone on your boat can enjoy. A better wake is proven to make for a more enjoyable wakesurfing and wakeboarding experience, and our TankBuster Upgrade makes it easy to achieve and hassle free to use.
Our TankBuster aftermarket ballast solutions increase the overall capacity of your Malibu's factory ballast system for improved performance while maintaining the convenience of controlling all ballast with the switches at your dash. That means you keep all of the convenience of your current ballast, just with expanded capacity to build a better wave. The factory hard tanks in these Malibu models take up valuable space in the rear lockers and don't hold enough weight to create the wake you desire. They are inefficient because they don't maximize ballast capacity when full, and when empty they still take up the same volume of storage space in the rear lockers. Our TankBuster Factory Ballast Upgrade solves this issue by removing the hard tanks in your Malibu and integrating WakeMAKERS FIT Series bags into your boat's factory ballast system. This solution takes up far less space when the ballast is empty for more storage, and maximized ballast capacity when full for the best possible performance.
Designed to directly integrate the provided WakeMAKERS ExactFIT Series ballast bags into your Malibu's factory ballast system, you still get to enjoy the convenience and ease of use with a fully automated fill/drain processes. You will use the same ballast switches at your dash to fill and drain the new ballast bags. Adding an additional few hundred lbs of ballast capacity in the rear lockers will create sizeable improvement in your Malibu's wake.
Every WakeMAKERS Factory Ballast Upgrade is designed to be a user-friendly DIY install that can be completed in your garage over the course of an afternoon. Don't want to do a self-install and would rather take your boat to a professional? These upgrades can be completed by your local WakeMAKERS certified boat service center.
