Tubliss tire system

Has anyone used the Tubliss system on a DualSport like the drz 400 and 50/50 riding? The system works great off road but can't find anything on asphalt riding with the Tubliss system

I have used the Tubliss system on the rear of my KTM with a Dunlop 606 without any problems. I have tried it on the front with a MotoZ knobbie and a Pirelli MT21 and just can't get it to hold air for an extended period of time.

Worth the money

Hoover,

You will not be disappointed with the system. Easier to mount tires, plug flat repairs and ride with flat capability. Plus, you can use crazy low air pressure without pinch flats. TuBliss isn't DOT but pretty sure some lawyer is behind that. It passes the offroad test so I feel safe rollin' the asphalt at sane speeds. Just be sure to keep the inner bladder at 100psi. Check it ever ride. I've never had a failure in 3+years.

Been running tubliss on the rear of my Husaberg for the past 1000 miles, 50/50 riding. I've had the bike up to 80 on the interstate without issue, for about a hundred mile stretch. Install wasn't difficult and the system holds whatever psi I feel like running. I'm considering it on the front, but I haven't pulled the trigger yet.

Thanks I appreciate the info I'll start with the rear tire on my drz I'll ride maybe 65 on road tops so it should work if it can take the off road beating surely it'll work on asphalt of course I'll air up to 20 psi for road use

I rode to Alaska and back home again with a Tubliss in the front tire of my KLR.
It works just fine.

It works perfectly. You won't have a single problem riding it on asphalt.
