Can I just throw a set of the TUbliss deals in my scorps and go anaturale?

I figure it couldnt be that easy; just pull out the tube and rimlock, plop one of these in there and everything is coming up roses ?

Assuming you have an adventure the rear definitely won't work. It's a 4.25" rim and the tubliss only works on standard off road rims 2.15 and maybe 2.5?

Front you may be in luck. Check your rim width but I think it's 1.6 which is ok.

But why not give them a call and see what they recommend. They had been saying they were going to make a setup for the big twins but not sure if it was for the SE or the ADV and I haven't heard anything in a while.

Both rims are too wide for Tubliss on SE and ADV.

Gosh, I haven't had any luck with Tubliss on a thumper, except slow speed, technical single track. Just can't keep air in it. I imagine it would be worse on the SE even if it did fit, due to the added weight.

I guess i should buy a set of tubless rims. I wish I could get a set of Super Tenere rims in 21/18 sizes. Its simple setup and definitely tubeless. Just like the idea of getting a flat and putting a plug in it and air up. Tires run cooler.

Outex Tubeless Kits

I have been running the Outex tubeless kits for 15,000 miles on my 19/17" wheels without any problems. You can find the Outex kits on Ebay.

As I just converted my rear wheel on my 500EXC to Tubliss - you are making me worry
How low of a pressure did you start off with on the thumper?
TIA

I've been using my sealed wheels for a similar amount of miles, with no problems except for a few leaks in the first couple weeks. If I was to do it again, I'd probably use Outex or something similar using 3m extreme sealing tape. As long as I'm going to keep the psi above 20 in these tires, I don't see the advantage of the Tubliss. With low pressures there's an obvious advantage.

Ya know, I'm not sure. Sorry. It's been a couple years since I last used it. I was trying to be reasonable to coach as much use as I could out of it. But, I was using it on the front tire. One of the advantages is that even when "flat" you can still ride it out of wherever you are.

I didn't notice where you're located, but it seems to not do well in the desert. Hope you're spared too much trouble!

so you seal the wheels and put these tubliss systems in? JTXT if you have been using these on a 17 I imagine the rim is pretty wide? Was just looking for a way to avoid dealing with tubes.

I believe the front 17" wheel is 3.5" wide. If you can't get the Outex for the front wheel you could always go with the TUbliss system on your front wheel and the Outex kit on your rear wheel.

Outex do make a kit for the 990 adv.- front 2.15 rear 4.25 rims 149.00.

First I need to hear from other users. I am running stock scorps. dont want to use tubeless tires. Anyone use a tubed 21" with low pressure offroad with the Outex kit? how long have anyone been running these? Ready for prime time or not?

my thought is go tubeless; have a road trip, pickup a nail, plug it and go. if the the hole is too big you could always put in a tube. Much rather plug and go.

tubliss vs the other tubeless techniques,,,,,?????

my two cents:::
IMHO:

1,,,Nothing beats a genuine tubeless rim

2,,,next best things are a variety of sealing techniques that convert the proper sized rim WITH A SAFETY BEAD to accept tubeless tires after sealing be it,the OUTEX method,,,or the variety of sealing techniques discussed and outlined by yours truly and others for the past ten years....done properly ,,with patience and exactitude toward cleanliness and patience to allow the chemicals to properly cure.

3,, the TUBLISS system is designed FOR OFF ROAD USE ONLY,,tis in all of TUBLISS"S literature,,,so PLEASE honor their guidelines!!!!,,,,and the range of their use is 1.6 x21'' and 2.15'' x 18 or 19'' for the rears ..BASTA !!! end of story. FYI,,we have never experienced more problems with any sealing system than this one...YOU HAVE TO BE SOOO CONSCIENTIOUS AND CARE-FULL !!!,,,if not ,,,the slightest mis-step will bend/scratch/ruin the delicate sealing surfaces

those are my $.02
