Tubliss on the 950SE?

If you did not hear about the tubliss, here a link

http://www.nuetech.com/tubliss.shtml

I only see advantages on this system, provided that they make 2.50 Rims systems.

Anybody mounted this in his KTM?

I doubt anybody has on a 950. Last time I looked, the guy making them could not supply too many sizes, especially 18".

The thing definitely works. When the guy does eventually get his act together and produce this thing in large quantities and multiple sizes, it will be a goer for sure.

Nice setup.

I find it overpriced though. I believe a fair price would be in the vicinity of $40. The market will descide. Cheers.

I'm running tube-LESS spoke wheels from Woody's. They work fine and hold air. I'm sure he can do the same thing with 18" & 21" as he did with 19 & 17. Guess I don't see the fuss.

What method do they use to seal the spoke nipples?

These are on road tyres I presume - it's abit more difficult on off-road.

Best to direct your questions to Woody. I bought them 2nd hand, mounted, working fine.
I don't know that sealing spoke nipples is more difficult on an off-road wheel. It may be more difficult on a butter rim like the stock KTM. A good stiff Sun rim and O/S spokes should stay together fine. In fact, I think Woody will gaurantee them.

I`ve just do it and it seems that it works. This weekend I run 300 km without leaks.IMO, the great advantage is that you can go with 20 Psi or less without flat´s risk .

Cool idea, but I can buy a lot of tubes (even HD tubes) for the cost this system. And what happens when you get a nail or the like that punctures the inter tube that’s pumped up to 110psi?

If the inner tube punctures, you're SOL. That's the reason I can't convert my dirt bikes over to this system. Not that we have nails on our trails, but have you ever seen a mesquite thorn? It's common for those to be several inches in length and they will make short work of the inner tube in the Tubliss system, I suspect.

I'll stick with the tried and true regular tube/liquid sealant combo for now. Really the only choice for thorn country, besides Mousse inserts.

Otherwise, the Tubliss sustem is the way to go, especially if you are running heavy duty tubes to prevent pinch flats. The tubliss system will save you a couple of pounds of unsprung weight, which is nice.
