    Default Momba Max Wakemakers Bag Buster install video

    I got around to installing my Wakemakers Bag Buster upgrade for my Max and the install was pretty straight forward despite having to cut a few holes. I think the hoses they provide with the kit could be a few inches longer as mine have the connectors dangerously close to the midship holes. I reached out to their support team to see if they can provide some longer hoses or there thoughts on why they seem short.

    Anyways I figured I'd share a video of the install for any new Max owner's wanting to know what comes with it and what is involved with the install. Can't wait for the water test!!

    Thanks man, I know it's a pretty straight forward install but perhaps will help other newbs like myself who are all new to ballast mods and such.

    Still no word back from WM on my short hoses though. They did take care of my when I realized my one of the bags with the kit wasn't for a Max but I have not heard from anyone from their support team since letting them know on Saturday. Hopefully they will send me some new hoses at 20" or so in length otherwise I guess I'll just go to Home Depot and find something to hold me over while I order the rest of the stuff for the midship overflow vent.

    Spoke with Wakemakers today over the phone and they determined my rear bags were made too short. They are making me some new bags and 2nd day airing them to me.

    I got my invoice from Wakemakers on the rear bags and noticed they say “1300 lb Max/Makai” on them as opposed to the 1200 lb you see if using the bag buster page for the Max. I wonder if that’s a typo or perhaps slightly larger bags now?

    Excellent, detailed video. I was wondering how those midship bags don't fill with a head of air if they don't have venting? You always need a place to let the air push out or the bag will never completely fill with water. Is that the case for you? To work properly it seems the kit should include those vents.

    The WM bags have vent caps but they are not as efficient as the ones that Skiers Choice use on the 2019+ stock Fat Sac bags. I had to bleed out air as they filled. Glad you enjoyed the video!

    After closer inspection the vent caps Wakemakers use is made by the same caps Skiers Choice or Fat Sac use. They are both made by Heyco.
