What do you guys think of making our rear tires tubeless? most of you probably heard people with bicycles doing this, but what about these motorcycle tires?
Maybe with a system like this. It will help reduce some weight also of those heavy motorcycle tubes.
Some other advantages.
Able to run tire flat if needed, I got a flat once on my shinko 241 tire and it sucked. With this you can ride slowly home I believe, or what other people said. You can almost ride the shinko 241 flat but not quite.
Easier to change tires by not having to deal with that annoying tube. It takes me so long to mount the shinko tires, last time I punctured the tube in two spots. I fixed only one hole and remounted only to find out that I punched two holes in the same spot. Took hours to get the tire on.
Easier flat repairs. Just use a plug! no more pulling tire off to fix a flat. Last flat took me over an hour to repair and I punctured the tube. Worst experience ever.
Tire supposedly feels better in the rear when running lower PSI because of not folding as easily
No pinch flats, even though this hasn't been a problem.
This tubeless system helps prevent the rim from bending, so less chance of a bent sidewall.
Seems to get great reviews from everybody. Some saying we are crazy for still using tubes.
So have I convinced anybody?
