This is why getting your fill and times correct is important. That being said there is a little dot next to each % when the dot is RED it means that the sensor is seeing water and that the bag is actually full that is unless you have the upgraded bags and your sensor has not been relocated to a higher location. Unless thing have changed the sensor for each rear bags is located on a pipe that is mounted vertically behind the rear wall in each locker. The height of the sensor is located right at the top of the factory bag so when your bag is full there is a column of water in the tube at the same height and the sensor see it and shuts your pumps off and turn the little dot on your screen red. This is why I ask if your dealer relocated your sensors. If they didn't and just added 1.5 min, the the sensor will see water at the old full level and shut the pumps off and show 100% but upgraded bags wont be full. My guess is if you still have your rear bins then they are not filling all the way, the only real storage you can get out of the rear locker with the upgraded bags is by hanging a net in them to hold a life jacket or 2.
    What are your fill times set @ for the rear bags?

    I timed them and they took 10 mins and 15 seconds to fill and overflow out the side so I set mine to 10 mins 25 seconds I believe. Now when I fill mine I do it the same way everytime I put the boat in gear and idle around with the motor at 1200 RPM.

    Ya I new they shortened them in the newer MY. Still 10" deep tubs wont be usable in the Makai with the WM upgraded bags. Their site doesn't show anything for the 22 Mojo yet but I know a few guys were talking with them about it.

    If the two rear bags are only 1,000 each I guess that means the front bag is 2,000 lbs? Didn't think it was that big/heavy.

    You have the 2 rear bags that are 1,000 each but then you have 2 400s that are piggy backed off of those, one on each side under the floor beneath the bench seat. You can lift the "floor" up and see the bag underneath it. So your Port and Starboard fill switches are actually filling 1,400 each. Then your bow bag is 1,200 giving you the total 4,000 factory ballast.

    good to know on the fill time. mine is set to 6:30, and only the bow bag overfilled. So I need to do some adjusting.

    I was torn paying extra for the bins knowing i could potentially get rid and fill with water... but i do like being able to store stuff, so i will probably just pack lead somewhere else.

    Ya I just set my times crazy high and idle up then flip all 3 switches and time them. Once they over flow then I mark the time down and double check the bag to make sure it is full and then reset the timer with 5-10 seconds of fluff. Some people will say to be carful when overflowing the bags as the fittings aren't made to hold the pressure of it but to each their own. Just know that if you are running you pumps for longer than you expect and it is not over flowing then you might have a problem lol

    Ya I used to put lead in the bin before I did the upgrade. These new boats have so much storage that it is worth losing the bins IMO.

    ha, thanks for the tips. Im sure the pressure concern was due to a connector that was loose or poorly fitted. unless the overflow is plugged there is zero pressure other than the pressure head from the height of fill on the lower fittings. I cant wait to dial it in tonight, only 3 hours on the boat so far.
