    Has anyone had any trouble with their ballast bag fitting tearing loose from the bag?
    My center bag had the fitting pointing down and I quess with pressure from the water weight it broke the fitting loose from the bag. I’m gonna check my other bags to see if they are positioned with the fitting pointing down. That’s not gonna work so I guess I’m gonna have to roll the bag somewhat in it’s side to get the pressure off of the fitting? Do y’all think Yamaha warranty will replace my bag? Bought new July 16

    Yes! Happened to me last year. Same bag, and the fitting broke. Dealer fixed it under warranty. Was easy and quick. Apparently the hose was not routed correctly which caused the failure.

    mine did that, there is an inline valve, way down in the engine compartment. Needs to be turned parallel to open position. Supposed to get done in dealer prep...
    But service dept couldn’t tell me I learned it here.

    We have checked that. That was the first thing the dealer asked
