That's going to be nice looking when you get it together.

I sealed that spoke and before the glue completely dried, I filled the tire and tested.. it held 30 PSI for a full day. I lowered it to 27 PSI and it has held fine for 4 days now. I am hopeful that it will be fine now, and can't wait to actually ride.

I do rough, rocky roads at very high speed, so I'm a bit concerned about this.
Would be interested to hear opinions or personal experience riding sealed tubeless rims off road.

Even though this is The DR650 Highway Touring Thread, I'm curious too.
