1190R with tube type tires (e.g. 908RR?)

The 1190R ultimate tire thread is all about tubeless tires. I'm wondering what everyone's experience is running tube tyres on the 1190R. I've just got a used bike with Motoz Tractionators fitted but the rear needs replaced (1500km on the clock, don't know when it was fitted). Wondering if anyone's run a 908RR rear yet - how was it? Mileage? Traction on/off road?

I have a tube type TKC80 on my R. I only have about 200 miles on it, but so far so good!

Did you have to drill a hole in the rim for the valve stem? I saw somone do that on a youtube video.

I don't have a 1190R but considering one.. the tubeless seems stupid to me anyhow.

Nope- zero drilling. I put a 120/100 18 tube in there. Tire is. 150/70. Just make sure you do not cinch the valve stem nut down very tight. If you make it too tight to the rim, it may pull the stem from the tube

So you're saying you took a conventional tube, and ran it out the rim on an angle? I don't think I have heard that before.

Yes, that is exactly what I did. The hole on the KTM rear is not that far off of center.

So why run a tube at all in the tube type tires? Maybe to air them down lower I guess?
I've heard of some running tube type tires on the tubeless rims with no issues at all in on and off road conditions.

I have experience with my 990 with tubed tires and the 1190R with tubeless and I have to say I'm not going back. Ever.

I'm almost 750lbs rider+bike on either bike so when my front wheel hits the many rocks and ledges at speed, it is something that will absolutely snakebite the living sh*t out of a tubed tire. This happened to every single tube I ran on the front of the 990 since 2007.

Enter the tubeless on the 1190R. Thus far with about 1200 miles on the odo and a significant amount of hard use (consider this bike validated) I can tell you this is the only way to go gents. Even with the sponge cake that is the TKC I've run 27lbs in the front without issue.

You can have yer friggin' tubes. All of 'em.

Also, if a puncture were to happen on road, having one of these (linky) to fix the issue in 5m as opposed to heavy tire irons and 45m of hell, thank you very very much. I'd rather be riding.

The only reason I am running one on the rear is because that was the only thing available for the 1190r 3 months ago. As soon as she is worn out, a TL is going on the rear.

Thank you for posting. This is one of the best "pro" 1190 adv tubeless tire arguments I've ever read, and for me, makes a compelling argument to steer me towards getting one. :) Happy riding!

I went to dealer and we turned of the tpms it will still read pressures if you leave the sensors in but it will not throw a warning fault if the run low or if you put tubes in. The reason I did it is so I can run 2 different sets of rims and tires dirt/street

Nice. That is a bit annoying. I'll have to remember that next visit.
