07' Vride - plumb rear ballast


Recommended Posts


I have a 07' Vride which I bought without the rear MLS tanks (it only has the center). I spent the summer filling a 750 Fatsac with an external pump which worked fine but now I want to automate it a bit. I would like to install a pump setup that is similar if not exactly the same as what Malibu would have done if the rear tanks had been installed at the factory. My question is, how does the factory installed system look? I assume the filll pump is located in the engine compartment with a through hull (similar to the pump already installed there for the center tank). The drain pump is likely connected to the hard tank and the hose runs up the side of the locker compartment (inside the wall or on the outside of the wall) to a hole that goes through the hull. Based on reading, it also seems they have a simple T so that a single fill pump services both rear tanks. Does this also mean there is a drain pump installed on each hard tank?

It seems even though I don't have the rear tanks, my wiring harness is the same in that there are some wires not being used which I assume would have been for the rear pumps. Does anyone have any pictures of what the factory system looks like?
