    looking to upgrade my 2014 vlx to a 2019 22 or 23 vlx   what is the benny of of a 23 vs 22   all we do is surf???????



    1. a1costly


      23 is larger, heavier, and more room. The wave will be better because it displaces more water. The difference is noticeable but not life changing. 

    2. Stevo


      Both will need additional bow weight,  i recommendation demo’ing both and making the decision based on your experiences.

      for the record that’s the reason I now own the 25LSV

    you our recent sold a 2006 LSV, I am trying to get a feel for my 2007’s value.  While I don’t have GSA like you do, I do have the 8.1L engine, upgraded stereo and hard plumbed additional ballast

    you mind sharing what you ended up selling you 2006 for

    The wedge on my ‘12 lsv 23 shows down on the screen but is up.  I can’t get it to move either direction, stays in the up position. Any thoughts? 

    1. BayouBryan


      You can locate the Lenco module in transom of boat or follow wires from lenco rams into boat.  Each Lenco ram will have a 2 wire plug.  Disconnect the 2 wire plug and can jump the rams with 12 volts to move manually... fyi... need to do both rams at same time or wedge will bind up.  Your problem is most likely a faulty lenco ram.

    2. snarls16


      I had that happen on my ‘11 vlx. Ended up changing them with the 5 lobe rams and controller from the ‘13+ Boats. If you are mechanically inclined its not that big of a project, took my girlfriend and I about 4 hours total. I’ll try and find the forum I used for the diy if you want.

    2006 LXI 340 monsoon with 1100 hrs.ool pressure shows between 40 -45 while skiing about 2700 rpm and around 45 psi when barefooting @ 4100 rrpm . seems lower than last year any concerns or easy fixes .

    1. asnowman


      Different filter? Or maybe different oil. Ours runs between 40 and 65, i think it depends on the filter. New filters run lower for us.

    2. BayouBryan


      Cold engines will run oil pressure up to 60 but when warm I've seen 20 to 30 at idle with warm engine... I dont see an issue.

    Noticed you're from Fort Worth. We are too. Trailer our boat to Lake Worth and Eagle Mountain quite a bit. Just wanted to say hi and hope to meet up sometime.

      Hey guys, just wanted to say hi.  I have my boat docked on lake worth.  Would love to get together on Goat Island sometime!  2013 Red LSV.  I’m new to this boat and would love to get together for some “best practices” for performance, and safety. Cheers to you both.

      Cool!  I’ve been around Malibu’s for awhile so know most of the ins and outs.  Always happy to have someone else to share pulls with!

    My 2000 Sunsetter LXI has developed a few new engine noises.

    I am seeking information on the best retailer to purchase mechanical parts for my older Malibu,

    With the stethoscope the sound seems to be coming from the alternator and fresh water pump. I also have a drip out of the engine water pump vent hole. I'm sure there's been postings in the past about where the best place to purchase these parts is and possibly even the part numbers to ask for but I couldn't find the information. The only thing I was able to locate was the raw water pickup pump but I didn't know if I found the best source.

    Thank you!


    1. drh


      www.skidim.com is a great for parts. You can call them if you can't ID something from their descriptions but they are normally pretty specific on part fitment.

    Hi Ronnie,

      Good to see another Texan here!  (I’m on Lake Worth). I saw your post about the bare feet only sticker..... I’d love to pick one of those up from you.  I’ll get home tomorrow from this work trip and I’ll be able to tell what color will work best.  Really appreciate you making the offer to help out the members here.  I should have the requested color of the sticker and payment for you tomorrow.  What’s the best way to send you the five bucks?  Pay pal?

    my best to you and the family this summer!

      Hey Luke! Come over to the Dallas Summer Boat Show this Saturday 7/20 and lets meet up. I will be working the show for Waterski America and we can talk about the boats.



    3. lukehartwig



      Sounds good! Our plan is to head over there Saturday. Looking forward to talking with you guys!

       @Murphy8166 and I help out with the WSA crew on Saturdays at all the Boat Shows. We get to meet a lot of our TMC members there that we wouldn't have a chance to meet otherwise. 

      Look for me (Ronnie) or Murphy when you get there and say Hello.

    Martin, is there any way to use your controller with my factory installed surf gate?  My Lenco processor box quit working.  I think my actuators are still still good, I just need a new controller.


    1. martinarcher


      Sure thing.  That's no problem.  I'll PM you about it.

    As a felllow-Lake Powell junkie -- I'm headed down next week from SLC for our first trip of the season (out of 4!).  We launch out of Bullfrog -- but I've been reading some horror stories online and in the news about the lines of traffic to get through inspection and decontamination.  I even read a rumor that you have to get inspected BEFORE launching your boat.  I had understood that you just had to be inspected as you leave the lake -- just like in years past.  Please share what your experience has been with respect to inspection and decontamination.

    Fortunately for me, my 2015 23LSV w/LSA has the sea strainer very accessible right under the rear seat -- I always remove my ballast bags and the sea strainer for our exiting inspection.  Sorry your's is so hidden.

    Hi boys. 

    First Time here if I did not post at the right spot! Feel free to tell me !

    Sorry for the  english. French speaking 99% of the Time ! 

    Problem started with a 

    ECM SPN 65598 FMI 7

    I ve google it, Found the indmar manual. 

    So a misfire on a injector  

    I had a dealer change that injector and run some test ... 

    last summer was fine after that, but this summer , got  the same code for another injector... 

    Change them all this Time !  

    I keep having the same problem .

    still having the engine shooting down when running engine about 20-25 mph. 

    I’ve seen two dealer , 2 solo mechanic ... still no clear anwser... 

    And off course it’s a intermittent problem. 

    We have change cap rotor Twice! All spart plug and cables, 8 injector , Check to be sure there is no water in tank. Changed the fuel filter. 

    The only thing I could think off would be sensors ??

    Anyboby have encountered the same problem? 

    Thanks in advance !

    I've got a set of extra large Malibu mud flaps from a group buy YEARS ago. They're for making your own Rock Tamers. I want to get them out of my garage. Let me know if you're interested.
