F800GS Tubeless

For on-road ease of flat repair, I've sealed my rim to use tubeless rubber on my F8GS.

EDIT: Thanks!!! to Cyborg (his link) (Finally found the link...)

Supplies



Prep



Conversion





"Seals All" went into the syringe. Goop went directly from tube. Apply two layers of Seals All. Wait 30min then apply one layer of Goop. Let stand over night. Remount.

Intersting, now go ride and check back in 10 or 15 thousand miles. I like it.

good idea

much easier than trying to move spokes to the outside of the rim.

How did it balance out after adding all the slime, goop and goo? Did it take a lot of weight?

I put her on a Marc Parnes balance tool and spun her both without the tire and with the tire. Neither one showed a significant heavy spot, i.e. after ten spins the wheel never once stopped in the same spot.

Lucky or incompetent. Either way there is not a significant imbalance.

I'd be real curious to know what your rate of leakage is (if you plan on tracking that), and how far you feel safe lowering the pressure when off-roading.

I will definitely track it but I don't off-road so I won't be playing that end.

I'm curious about the other end of the spectrum-- fast. Will the centripetal force cause leakage as the sealant is pulled to the perimeter or will the tire pressure keep it all in check?

The cool thing about the Parnes balancer is you don't spin it and watch where it stops each time. Put the wheel up on the rig, let it settle. That is the heavy spot. Mark it. Weight the opposite side of the wheel until you can put the heavy spot at 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock and have no movement.

Good to know. I don't use the balancer much.

I still think she is basically balanced.

Saw a RR for..."Gregor" I think where he did a 17/19 combo on his KTM 950, made the rear tubeless in this manner and went on a trip, 2 up with gear on the Translab. I think he only had problems with the road conditions eating up the tire. It still did decent (able to limp in to town) even with multiple string plugs.
