Usual disclaimer for project like this: Preform at your own risk.

Rear has a "safety lip" on the wheel. Let me tell ya, this would be a real bitch to break the bead trail-side with a sidestand.



Scuff the surface up and clean with non-alcohol solvent



Cover the spokes in case a future adjustment is needed and insert proper tubeless valve stem.



Cover evenly with, in this case, 3M 5200 sealant.




Allow product to cure. They have a regular and a Fast Cure 5200. If I do this again it'll be with the Fast Cure.
Install tire, balance, submerge in tub to check for tiny leaks, and ride.





Several rides and all is well.
If the front wheel had "safety lips" I would be sealing that one too, but most of my punctures have been on the rear so hopefully the front won't need an in the field fix....
Hmmm. No more pictures. Does this mean the experiment failed?

I hadn't been on their site, in a while. I do like their stuff, though.

Nope. Spoke seal still going strong with 6k miles on it.

The fail belongs to Photobucket....

That's great news! I just changed my tires for the first time at 12,000miles. I'll be doing the mod at next tire change if things continue to go well

Thanks for the mod. Much appreciated

Fellow Tiger owners...has anyone got MIVV exhaust on their Tiger? If so - would it be by any chance possible to take photo directly from the back and then from the top of your set up? I am in desperate need to change exhaust but looking for something that will let me save few cm on rear width (to build symmetrical luggage rack). And any feedback on MIVV will be very appreciated. I do plan to run it always with DB killer - just for information.

Well, I was wondering more about if he was offering those items for sale.

This sump guard was made by a member, over on the 1050 forum, and offered for sale.

My buddy Andy has it - I'll try and get him to post a picture. It's small and sounds good.

Gypsy Run 6

This past weekend I participated in this years Gypsy Run up here in the north east - 1000 miles of Pocono and Catskills road in 2.5 days, two nights of camping and some pretty inclement weather at times. First real shakedown of the bike. I'm in love all over again. It simply could not have performed better.
