Nuetech Tubliss on larger rear rims

Anyone utilizing the Nuetech Tubliss system on the 2.5" rear rims? If so what was your experience? Miserable failure or some successes?

The system is designed not to go beyond the 2.15" rims of dirt bikes but I know we all push the boundaries at times and wondering if people here have tried them on their SE's and such.

I am keen to know this too, either that or has anyone cracked the code for the perfect spoke sealing by way of RTV etc.

Read plenty of threads on it but interested to hear from anyone who has had it done long term.

This was posted in Two moto Kiwis other thread asking about Tubliss front systems. Looks like he has used it on 2.5" rears with success.

I also run them with tire sealant and get no leakage except from a little around the high pressure valve when I top up the high pressure bladder.

I must admit I was worried when I first fitted them about running them at high speed and the fact that they are not designed for my rim sizes. After the first 1000 miles of abuse I declared them awesome and I can't see me going back to tubes. I've used my 690 mainly on tough, rocky trails and high speed gravel for the last 4 months and my tires are fucked but my rims are in great shape. The bead of the tire has never moved and I've never noticed a flat

There was a thread earlier that might answer some of your questions here http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=560599

This is the reply from jeff at tubliss when I asked. So no it's not designed to work on 2.5 rear rims 950 or 990 se or adv.

Jeff is really helpful.

Outex

I had tried using Goop, Seal All, super glue, etc. only to develop a leak a week or month later. I have had great success with the Outex kit and have had it on my wheels for about a year now. The kit was originally developed and used for Supermoto racing. You can get the kit on Ebay, if you don't see the size your looking for just send them and e-mail. The kit is easy to install and even lets you adjust the spokes later if needed.

Here is a link to a video showing the install process -

Thanks Brent for the data point. Metaljockey PM'd me and said he has used them on 2.5" rears in combination with using tires with very thick beads to help take up the gap. I know Maxxis has thick beads. A lot of the tires recommended with thick beads are not available in Thailand sadly. May just have to roll the dice and see what happens.
