Wow, dude. All I am saying, and I am not going to turn this into what caused the leak, is that I removed the old tape ran a new one (and over lapped it), and the tire no longer leaked from the spoke that was causing the leak in the first place. Can I make this any clearer for you to understand?

LOL, it is totally clear if you are going to keep saying that "and the tire no longer leaked from the spoke that was causing the leak in the first place" that you have no idea how the system works. Spoke holes can't cause a leak, you likely inadvertently fixed the seal at the interface with the beads when you took the tire off to play around with the tape. Is that clear enough for you?

Never hurts to read install instructions, try it some time.

Maybe ease up a bit, eh? In all likely hood, when he dismounted the tubliss to fix the tape he got a better seat of the system (like you said) but there is no reason to be rude about it in this thread.

The rim that you showed in your photo is a tubeless rim. You keep talking about a Tubliss system. The tubeless rim in the photo does not need a tube of any type, Tubliss or not. That was the whole point of it being made in the first place. Tubeless tires mounted on a spoked rim as a "Look at our cool engineering" ploy Honda did on the utterly forgettable 1982 Rebel 450. The spokes mount to the rib in the center of the wheel, not the outer rim itself. Air cannot leak out of those, they never even come into contact with the spokes. About the only way I can see that air can leak anywhere near the wheel depicted is if you have a porous wheel, and I doubt that since those wheels are fabricated with extruded aluminum.

Help me out?
It's getting confusing.

I think some guys are talking about the Neutech Tubliss system that is on dirt bikes (but could be used on older trials bikes or in the front tire of any bike) and some are talking about tubeless wheels with rim strips and then, there is the "latest" rims that the spokes attach to the ribbed wheel.

Whatever the case, it doesn't leak anymore!!

Yup. Went back to his original post. Nuked mine. Thanks Laser and Gordy for quoting it....Woops, looks like Laser nuked his too.

Carry on boys. Without incurring the wrath of Nev, that is.

To misunderstandings!!

Intentions notwithstanding, it is not helpful for someone to say his Tubliss system leaked through the spoke and he fixed it with tape. Anyone considering the system instead of a leaky rim strip type wheel on their TB should instead know they are not the same at all. I tried to correct the misinformation and I am told it can't be made any clearer to me?

Yeah, I don't suffer fools well.

Is this the "what I did today" thread or the "argument over how to fix a Tibliss leak" thread?

I'm asking so I know how to post appropriately.

So did the valve stem cure the leak on the real tubeless rim? Like I said all the old ones always seem to have a slow leak. Twinshock anyone.

Yes, the source of the leak on the factory gasgas real tubeless rear rim was the valve stem, which did not show any sign of a leak with the water and soap technique. Nevertheless, a new one stopped the leak.

So, I have 3 Trials bikes that need tires, two need fork seals, one needs a shock overhaul, 3 need to have the top-end freshened up, all need a bi-annual service. Did I do any of that today?

No.

Instead, I dug out a 10-year old can of Honda red spray paint, and rattlecanned the sun faded seat base of my old 314R -





The front fender is next. Damn good use of my time this afternoon, I think.

For a trials rider, you spend a lot of time making your 'seats', look pretty.
