You are misinformed. Just went to your BMW NZ website. They list same wheel as the rest of the world. If your bike came with one, it was a dealer install.

They are the bog standard BMW's..............now you have me worried I had the bike shop fit new tyres not long ago. I have to swing by there later today so I will ask the mechanic.

Does your "F8" have cast alloy wheels and the decal that says F700GS on the side panels? Post a photo of your bike, please, and a close-up of the valve stem.

Rider - your stock F800GS tyre will be tubeless-capable, but it will still have a tube in it.

I am utterly confuzzled now. A spoked F800GS (the only way they come from factory, that I know of) are only tubed -> try putting a tubeless tire on it and fill her full of air... Now the cast wheels are tubeless to my knowledge but they aren't for the F800GS. Am I wrong?

Wow, a lot of leg pullin' goin' on.

Some people are just slow.

They're tubeless if it's a RH AU drive spec.

With a non-disclosure statement in the owners manual.

Not published.

ooo eeerrr

I think I am glad I didn't put my left knacker on them being tubeless!! Just had a look through the crud and the valve stems are threaded with the locknut on the rim.

I just ASSumed that 'cos the tyres say tubless that they were.

Anybody want to buy a tubeless repair kit

I was going to catch up with the tyre fitter that did the last change but the day ran out. Now I need to buy spare tubes to carry.

At least you know now, not finding out…. you know…. in the middle of nowhere trying to fix a tubed tyre with a tubeless kit

Although that would have been hilarious to watch.

"trying to fix a tubed tyre with a tubeless kit "

"That would have looked good with the GoPro running"


Would make a good submission to:
