Keeping bow ballast from moving


Recommended Posts

Hello. I have a 99vlx. Trying to figure out how I can keep my bow back from rolling/sliding. I haven't ordered the integrated bow sack yet but I have some extra sacks that I'd like to put one on the bow seats and use. I have 2 400lb locker sacks and a 750 locker sack that's extra. Tonight I went for a ride and had the 750 on the front seats and just put a few hundred pounds of water in it and of course is slumped in the walk way and soon as I went to pull some one up it rolled on the seats. I don't have a bow filler for it. Any insight would help. I thought about taking a 400 and kind of wrapping it around the bow under the seats and just partially filling it. I'm not sure if it will work though

I bought some plastic cutting boards, 1/2" I think, maybe 5/8" that spanned the area that bow filler would go, fit them under the seats a little & the bag would just sag onto those but only as deep as the cushions.

My initial thought was to give them a cooler full of beer, but then I realized your ballast wasn't human ballast! :lol:

A piece of flat webbing around the sack and under the cushion to go around the seat support could help too; Make sure it's a little bit smaller than the sack when full, that way it will "grip" the sack when full. You could also sell some of the sacks you have in the classified and get a bow triangle...

Haha problem is if I give them to much beer they will be rolling around on the floor lol. Good idea with the net. I think I will just deal with it until I sell some of these old bags and get an ibs
