I've got a mousse in my front tire right now (SE) and it's fine if you don't want to deal with tubes. :) Haven't tried it yet in the rear yet.

I have run tubliss on my 450 21" front and an 18" rear. no problems with either one. over time they both loose air but for weekend rides or stuff like that no issues. I just check the pressure before I go riding and make sure it's where I want it to be. My standard/UHD tubes in both my bikes usually need some adjustment as well so I don't notice anything different with the Tubliss. I run it around 6-8psi on a trials rear tire, and a standard front tire on my 450. I did start (at least on the rear) with a new rim and tire so that helps with the sealing. If you have a used tire, and beat up rim you will probably have more issues with sealing. :)

those are my $.02

Woody, thanks for weighing in with your experiences. Can you get the super tenere type rims in 21 and 18 and would they work with the KTM lace pattern? What tubeless rims would you have that would lace up to the KTM 950adv hubs? I read some of your other posts on the subject so trying to educate myself. Would tires like the stock scorpions work on these types of rims? I dont need knobbies more like a 70/30 tire. I found the stock rear scorp does pretty good in the sand when its fairly new. Would like to run those. My current front rim set up was done by Rad and they ordered an Excel 21x2.15 to lace up to one of their hubs. I see the spoke nipple heads are very big and protrude quite a bit so I would be worried the Outex solution might not work.

Woody, I bought a set of Repsol-orange powdercoated superlaced Excel wheels from you last year ... the rear was your tubeless setup, the front is standard. Awesome wheels.

I've been running the Tubliss system up front on my 950 and have put it through plenty of slab and gnar ... no problems other than the usual air loss over time. FWIW.

Or you can go with Woody's 1.6 front and do the Tubliss.....and have Woody seal the rear rim and go tubeless on a 3.5".

That's my plan!!!!

I already did the A60 in the front.


Because changing the rear on the trail is a complete bitch!

How low of a pressure did you start off with on the thumper?
TIA
If you installed the system correctly, you will have no issues. The statement that they don't work in the desert is complete BS. We use them in baja on 1,000 mile+ trips with zero issues. I would recommend going Tubliss on the front also as I find they are more suseptible to pinched flats.
I would recommend using the system with a 6 ply tire such as the Bridgestone ED77 and ED78. If you get a puncture, you can install a plug and be on your way.
I usually run 8 lbs. in the rear
