I've never had a bike with cast wheels, so I've never even messed with a tubeless tire before. I just figured since they always sold them as tubed or tubeless, that they weren't interchangeable.
Yep, it'll work just fine. Supermotos are a prime example, I've yet to see a 150 slick labeled for tubes. Also, Dunlop 803s are tubeless trials tires that are used all the time with tubes on dirt bikes. Tubeless are just a bitch to install/remove as they're much tighter on the bead of the rim.
