    There's a lot you don't know.
    Your information about a car tire on a car didn't add much to the motorcycle application.



    TUBLISS

    Replace the inner bladder every 100 hrs or 12 months — whichever comes first.

    While no manufacture states its ok to use a car tire on a motorcycle, no manufacturer clearly states that you should not either.

    The manufacturer of TUbliss however clearly states -TUbliss is for OFF-ROAD USE ONLY and is NOT recommended for street use.

    And no it is not essentially an inner tube in a tubeless tire, it is a high pressure system that allows tubeless like running with a rim that was never designed to be tubeless and its use is clearly intended by its manufacturer for off road use only.

    I am also very curious as what DOT legal, tubeless tire you are running on a 450 KTM that you ride on an MX track.
    Particularly in a 21" front.

    So you're are ok with using the tubeless system on the street even though the manufacturer clearly says it's not designed for street use because since it's hidden from view and you're not likely to get busted for it when it fails and you plow through a playground full of children?

    My God man, think about the children!

    Wrong. Do your research. Quite a few manuals go as far as specifically saying not to use a car tire.

    Honda has said not to in their Goldwing owners manual.

    http://www.manualslib.com/manual/598692/Honda-Goldwing-Gl1500.html?page=37

    'Course, they also warn you to never install a tube in a tubeless tire, or to ever mount a tube type tire on a tubeless rim, to use extreme caution when braking, accelerating or turning, and to only use new genuine Honda parts.

    Everything written by motorcycle manufacturers should be taken as Gospel. For example:


    HOW TO RIDE MOTORCYCLES
    1962 Safety Rules from Honda

    Taken from a 1962 Honda Motor Cycle Instruction Book. Translated by
    Honda for the American Motorcycle Rider

    1. At the rise of the hand by Policeman, stop rapidly. Do not pass him by or
    otherwise disrespect him.
    2. When a passenger of the foot, hooves in sight, tootel the horn trumpet
    melodiously at first. If he still obstacles your passage, tootel him with vigor
    and express by word of mouth, warning Hi, Hi.
    3. Beware of the wandering horse that he shall not take fright as you pass
    him. Do not explode the exhaust box at him. Go smoothingly by.
    4. Give big space to the festive dog that makes sport in roadway. Avoid
    entanglement of dog with wheel spokes.
    5. Go soothingly on the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon. Press
    the brake foot as you roll around the corners, and save the collapse and tie
    up.

    I stand corrected.
    No manual on any bike I have owned or seen has called that out.

    So, I will agree it is just as dangerous running car tires on a Goldwing 1500 as is using the TUbliss system on any bike the street.

    Dunno but I recommend that the mods ban Freddie from posting in this thread. Make it so he can read all he wants, even post in all other parts of the forum, juss not here. Could you imagine ole Freddie boy's reaction? I bet he would shit himself for sure. Wonder how long it would take? A week or so?? I mean, all that bullshit he spews every day would get all pent up and :Ruskie:kboom:kboom:lol2

    We don't need mods for that. If everyone reading this thread put him on ignore, itd effectively do the same thing.

    I put that twatwaffle on ignore last week after his presumed liability fucktard postings over in the thread about the California lane splitting law. Asshats like him are one of the main reasons we have so many problems in this country today.

    Next thing you know, shitforbrains will want a law passed saying you can't run a car tire, because we all need protecting from ourselves.
