    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.

    It's getting confusing. :rofl

    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!! :lol3

    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!! :freaky

    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. [​IMG]

    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.:D Twinshock anyone.:rofl:ear:eek1

    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. :lol3

    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 -

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