Has anyone tried this tubeless wheel conversion method?

I saw a video on YouTube and found this tubeliss kit on Ebay. I was wondering if anyone has tried this kit out and how it worked.

Here is a link to the YouTube video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ikKeV...ature=youtu.be

It can be also found in Ebay if you search for "tubeless ducati"

The only problem I could foresee with this product is fitting the tire on with the space on the channel of the wheel filled with tape. My experience is that the tire needs to be able to sit in the high spot of the wheel as you install it. If it's filled with tape the tolerance may be to tight making tire installation very difficult?

It is hard to tell from the video but the tape does not look that much thicker than the rubber rim strip that originally is installed on the rim and should not make installing the tire too much more difficult.

The $129 is only for a kit to suit 2 x 17" rims. You need to search their site http://www2s.biglobe.ne.jp/~outex/tu...nglishlist.htm for the specific kit required, ie 21" front & 18" rear, etc. Then identify the kit to the seller via eBay and they'll get back to you with a price.

Cheers Rich

Just like a MTB

Can someone explain why it is different than a MTB conversion? It seems very similar.

two of my riding buddies (HEY BUZZ N YAMMY!!!) have beat the shit out of their bikes with this system. one of them uses a trials tire @ 10PSI or so, no issues.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66iVFMw6Fg0

just some of the stuff he put his husky 610 through last weekend. buzz is on a dr650.

later guys !

I'm seriously thinking about it, I ordered a 19/17 wheelset from Woody's yesterday and was planning on doing Cyborg's tubeless sealing method.I sent Woody an e-mail today to find out if he has any knowledge or experience of how the Outex system performs.

Did you ever here back from Woody on this?

Just found this thread researching this system for my R1200R Classic. Very interested - seems like a more elegant solution than the silicone methods.
