Not true at all, at least not with the plug system I use.

Nice fish dude! I love riding there, its a blast Next time I'm in the area, I'll send you a PM... HIJACK OFF


My racers support program just took the Tubliss system on and I get a pretty good deal on them, so I guess its time to give them a shot.
This thread has lots of great info, thanks too all!

Given how they work to press the bead against the rim I would think you might be stretching things (literally) if you go beyond the recommended width. It would change the way the hard plastic bit presses against the tire. It would press more up than out. I sent Nuetech an e-mail with the question and they confirmed that 2.15 was the maximum rim width. Here is an image from their brochure.

Damn!!! I guess I should have checked the front & rear rim width on the KTM 690...


both are too wide for the Tubliss stuff I just ordered...

I was looking forward to getting rid of carrying 2 spare tubes....

Or, you could be the one that answers the questions that Neutech's lawyers keep them from answering. Are they OK on the highway? Will they work on larger rims?

Some time in late July mount your TUbliss, load that bad boy 690 up with gear, make a mid-day run north on 54 out of Van Horn pegged in sixth, and let us know how it turns out.

I've been from White's City to Van Horn by way of Hwy 54 on my TE-610...
it sucked...I don't figure the KTM would be much more fun, but throwing both tires off the rim might make it interesting....

So how are they holding up? How well do they work on the highway?

I'm not the one to correct you, but I do feel you are wrong.
I have run the same tires (TKC80's) on my 12GS and my KLR, one bike is tubeless the other uses a tube. Not much difference in tire pressures other than the fact that the GS is heavier and needs a bit more for the loads it carries, but I have deflated both bikes in more offroad situations down to teens of air pressure with no bad effects. I have also plugged a hole in the GS's tubeless TKC rear that I could put the tip of my little finger into, and you won't patch that hole in a tube! I think the tubliss system is a good way to go for a lighter bike, although I don't know how they act at highway speeds.
I remember a system that sealed your spoked rim so that you could run a tubeless tire, if we combine all the possible systems,there would never be another flat!,, tubliss, bibmousse, sealed rims, and bullet proof kevlar liners, then we'd only need to come up with a tire that won't wear out.

I haven't got them yet. Jeff was supposed to call me when they came in. I've been out of town and very busy with job interviews so I haven't had time to stop into his shop and check either. Which is just as good since I haven't had time to ride either and wear out the knobby.

I probably will this weekend.

Where did you get that ruler from, they look like the smallest inches I have ever seen! Oh well, like I say, if they fit in the pan, they're good to eat!

I've just installed a set on my WR250R/X and will be doing the entire TAT this summer and then riding back east on the pavement so I'll let you know how it works out.

The thing that I've noticed immediately is that the wheels are extremely out of balance with the rim locks (never used them before). Like 4oz out of balance. I'm going to try and use dynabeads in the tubliss inner tube to balance it out. If it works I should never have to worry about balancing again.

I installed then on my XChallenge.

4000 kms throw Marocco (1600 on desert, 2400 on pavement and highways) and no problem at all. Runing from 0'5 atm to 2 atm perfectly.

Regards.

I'm just curious...aren't your rims wider than the recommended limit for the Nuetech system? If so, how did you get a good bead clamp from the inner liner? And aren't your rims 17"...or do you have a separate set of wheels?

granted, my bike doesn't fit your description, but i plugged a screw hole in a tourance tire on the rear of my bmw gsa and ran it for 10,000 miles. both on and off road from 16 to 32 psi. never leaked.
i've got a ntm drz and it has the tubliss system in it. so far, i love it.
