We had ZERO flats and we only changed our rear wheel do to the 20 rim kiss's
But I am installing new Excell A60 rims!!!!

Tubliss work well for punctures but Big rim kiss's like we had and Tire slices they fail.
I would run Front and Rear Bib Mooses on your 690 !!!!!
The Front is good for the whole race and I would change the Rear "Just Becuse"
at the half way point. Nothing like a FRESH tire!!
1 flat that was plugged, but swapped out because why not. the rest were bent rims.

IMS will have a Large tank out very soon for the Yamaha 450 wr
but I would ride a Honda 450x or 650R or a Kaw 450 or a KTM
More support out here for the Top three bikes

I actually had a front flat, which is the reason why I lost the front end and smacked the rock with my clutch cover I was running 20 psi in the front tire when I left in the AM but I hit a few rocks pretty hard and might have let some out, not sure. I'll run a Mouse in the front and TubLiss in the rear. The ability to plug the tire trail side appeals to me and worst case ride the flat to the next pit and put a tube in.

In the woods up here, the TubLiss works great, I run 10-12 PSI and have excellent luck. Out in Baja, I was a fish out of water

One rear flat (puncture), rode it in flat 70 miles of pavement because I KNEW it would stay on the rim. Front stayed totally inflated after bending the front rim to the point that I can just see the base of the tire bead after I cleaned it up. Changed that wheel cuz it was just juck. That being said I will have a mousse in the front as Igot lucky on that hit. Tubliss correctly used in the rear I'm very comfortable with. Mark, have Aaron send you a MotoZ, tough tire!
