The stock Excel wheels take some major abuse, what are you trying to upgrade to?

I'd expand that question by asking if anyone makes a tubeless spoked wheel for the 800XC? Using tubes on the street kinda makes my skin crawl.

I don't think anyone else does.

What are you trying to do?

I just prefer tubeless for high speed riding. The thought of a blowout at 80 always makes me a bit uncomfortable. Its much more likely with a tube.

Woody's can lace your stock hub to a Sun rim (21") which has a safety bead and they will seal that up and that gets you tubeless. Standard sealing for rear wheel. Check the Woody's thread in vendors. I made a recent post.

I didn't think Woody's would make a 21" tubeless... I asked via email and was told they didn't because they didn't like the rim they had to use for it.

You are correct!!
I asked them when I picked up my Super Tenere up stopped at Woody's wheels he will do the 18" not the 21"..

Any blow out a 80+ MPH sucks.
You know the saying, you only go as fast as you want to fall.

Like I said, check the Woody's thread in vendors. Last page. They'll do it.

Woody will do it with the Sun rim, because it has the safety bead. It also is a 2.15 wide rim vs the 2.50 rim on a 800xc.

I always felt the Triumph rim was purposely wide to compensate for the less than normal amount of trail on the bike. It would be interesting to know what handling difference it would make, if any.

I think it expands the contact patch a bit to compensate for the 21's skinny tire as well. At least that's what I read in a magazine somewhere.

Road performance is surprisingly good. But I too worry about a tube blow-out on the freeway. Routinely run at 80-85, even with a full load. Could be a OUCH!

I don't get this worry. People have been riding tubed tires at high speeds in Europe and elsewhere for decades without any blowout problems. I don't see any real issue here.

For lightness or ease of puncture repair tubeless has a very real advantage.
