We do ... seems like they don´t offer them ...

There has to be a 17" tube out there somewhere. The BMW, KTM, or Yamaha dealers might know. They all run spoked wheels and I really don't think the Super Ten has tubeless wheels and the GS hasn't always had tubeless rims I would think.

I can get a 17" tube from the same place I bought my TT Metzler Sahara's, SWMoto. I was just hoping to be able to make one order.

the 1100/1150/1200 GS have always been 150-17" tubeless.
older GS was a 130-17"
super tenere is 150-17" tubeless.

995 & 800xc tiger use tubes as does 800gs for 150-17" rear and that's about it.

strom is cast wheel 150-17" tubeless
capanord uses bmw 150-17" tubeless wheel technology.

ktm use a 18" rear wheel

conti is saying run the same tube for 150-17" as you would for a 130-17"
http://www.conti-online.com/generato...aueche_en.html

my guess is that bridgestone 110-18" heavy duty would fit great in a 150-17". tried it once in a 130-17" and it was real tight but worked.

There are lots of 17" tubes out there and lots of tubeless rim riders who use tubes on their tubeless rims. Tube sizes are pretty generic and often fit a range of tire sizes. For instance my current 21 inch tube will fit a tire that's 2.75 to 3.25.

And I have the exact same tube on my F800 rear as I do on my 650 single...130 tire on the single and 140 tire on the F8 but it'll fit a standard 150 sized tire too (actually fits the 150 a bit better than the 140 because the 130 and 150 have almost the same exact profiles whereas the 140 has a different aspect and therefore different measurement ratios.

The vitally important thing about selecting a tube is making sure you have the rim diameter correct...

Tube quality varies by manufacturer/application and one can be very discriminating in choice of tubes if one wants to be. I'm not. A good sized nail will puncture any tube and I typically buy whatever off-road tube fits my tire and is on the sale shelf at Cycle Gear because I'm cheap and lazy and the store is not far out of the way of my normal travels.

But motorcycle tubes can be found at any store that sells/mounts motorcycle or ATV tires. My local agricultural supply store even sells tubes that fit the F800 (they also sell an assortment of dirt bike tires).

If you really want to be sure you get a good fit, buy the tube recommended/sold by the tire manufacturer. I'm sure most tire manufacturers also sell tubes to go with their tires.

And for those that are really worried about tubes/flats there are various technological alternatives to using tubes out there such as RhinoTire gel, Nutech Tubliss systems, and airless tubes.

Go with whatever works for you.
