Converting a Tubed Rim to a Tubeless Rim

Converting a Tubed Rim to a Tubeless Rim

If you’ve got tubes in your tires, you have a “tubed rim”.  If you get a puncture the tire repair process is lengthy:  Remove the wheel, break the bead, spoon the tire off one side of the rim, repair or replace the tube, re-spoon the tire back on the rim, inflate, and re-install the wheel on the bike.  Allow 45-60 minutes for the process.

But if you’ve got tubeless rims the tire repair process is quick and easy.  Use a vulcanizing sting to repair the tire, inflate, and ride.  The entire process takes less time than it took for me to type this report.

Mr. BestRest did some research and found out what other riders were using for this conversion.  Then he made a video showing you how it’s done.

Converting from tubed to tubeless isn’t for everyone.  But after watching the video you’ll have enough info to make up your own mind…

About the Author:

I'm David Petersen, owner of BestRest Products. You can see my photo on the home page. I've been riding motorcycles for almost 60 years, and during that time I've had some wonderful adventure. In 2000 I started BestRest Products - our first product was a folding back rest, hence the name of the company. Over the years I kept designing and inventing gear. Today we have over 300 products in our store, and I created many of them. I ride a BMW R1200GS, a BMW F800GS, a Honda XR650R, and two KTM 450-EXCs. Plus I have a couple quads that I keep at a summer cabin. I spend most of my free time riding with my wife Judy. When not riding I'm answering the phones at BestRest or working in the shop on some project. I'm also the author of "How To Ride A Motorcycle Off Road", which is a free book you can download from the website.
