WakeMAKERS 2006-2011 / 2013 Mastercraft X45 PiggyBack Front Factory Ballast Upgrade
WakeMAKERS exclusive Factory Ballast Upgrade Kits are built and designed to unleash your boat's full potential. It takes more than stock ballast to achieve the wake you've always desired. A better wake is proven to make for a more enjoyable wakesurfing and wakeboarding experience.
Our aftermarket ballast solutions increase the overall capacity of your boat's factory ballast system for improved performance while keeping the convenience of controlling all ballast with the switches at your dash. The ballast bags included in your Factory Ballast Upgrade are integrated into your boat's existing ballast system for automated filling/draining.
The WakeMAKERS Mastercraft PiggyBack Factory Ballast Upgrade integrates aftermarket ballast bags with your boat's factory center hard tank. The additional ballast is controlled using the switches on your dash, and not require any additional effort to fill and drain. The updated ballast system will run just like your stock system but now with an increased overall capacity for improvements in your wake.
Bow ballast is often forgotten about but equally important as ballast in other zones of the boat for creating a satisfactory wake. A balanced distribution of ballast throughout all zones of the boat creates a cleaner shaped wake that makes for better takeoffs and landings wakeboarding. In wakesurfing, more bow weight typically helps to lengthen out the wake, creating a bigger "sweet spot" or "pocket" where the rider can surf without the rope.
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.
This factory ballast upgrade is a complete solution that includes everything needed to upgrade the ballast on your boat:
- Fly High 500lb bow sacs
- All required pre-assembled fittings and connectors required for installation
2012 Model Year Boats Require a Firmware Update
2012 MasterCraft boats require a firmware update in order to modify the time duration that the ballast pumps will run for. We have heard conflicting information about the availability of this firmware update, so please confirm it is available through your local dealer prior to purchasing this upgrade if you own a 2012 model year boat.
