    Question Moomba Kaiyen ballast upgrade

    Has anyone added wakeMakers bag busters for Moomba Makai in their Kaiyen?

    Aren't they the same as the new Makai?
    Similar hull just the length is different, but I thought that length was in the middle of the boat not the back.

    I found out that the bags from manufactures are the exact ones for Makai, so I have my order in for larger bags to fit in my Kaiyen

    I put in the Wakemakers bags for a Makai into my Kaiyen this spring and it made a huge difference. I can no easily surf with just my wife and 8 yr old in the boat with plenty of push. Sometimes itís even too fast and I need to hit the breaks. Can easily now fill the bow bags to 100% to maximize them too. I also put in the Wakemakers vent kit eliminating the need for burping the bags and panel reinforcements.

    I assume you have to pull the bins out? Any idea on how much weight these add vs stock? Pretty much plug and play?

    The panel reinforcements needed??

    Yes the bins need to be pulled out but Iím going to replace with HyprRyde nets. The bags are 100% plug and play (10 minute job). The vent you need to make a couple cuts and use a heat gun to get the fittings together but itís super easy (Iím not handy at all). I believe the stock bags are 1k or 1100ís (someone correct me if Iím wrong) and the new bags are 1345 each so about 600 lbs depending on what stocks really are.
    Yes the panel reinforcements are needed, itís a small amount versus have them snap and your bags get ruined and have water all over. Contact Adam Tober on Facebook, he will hook you up.

    You will need to reinforce the divider panels. They will pop out on you at some point. Skiers Choice should be making a retrofit for these panels in my opinion. They are not designed well. Mine would pop out when just maxing out my stock bags. Make sure to screw the bottom of the panels into the aluminum track too.
