Have you considered Tubliss?


I dont believe they make them big enough for these size rims and they dont handle higher speeds our bikes can manage.

:wall: Bugger.

Theres another product called Outex.
Same say it works really well.
Not very expensive, might be worth a shot.

Thankfully I wont have to resort to the US for a tubeless fron solution and Ive found someone local who can lace up an 1190R tubeless rim to a 990 front hub?
Even better, theyve done it before so Im not the guinea pig :lol:
Brilliant stuff, cant wait :thumb:

After some indecisiveness, the front wheel looks like a goer.
I want to keep the original wheels and finding another stock hub proved a little difficult so Im going with a Haan hub laced up with custom spokes onto a KTM tiueless rim.
Hopefully may even get it before xmas :yo:

Same as this with the tubeless rim

Had some time to kill so decided to sort out some of my old stuff.
For once my laziness paid off and I found some stuff I didnt remember I had.

A BDCW second fan assembly

Image

Mount is a little bent but thats an easy fix

Wasnt going to bother with one but since Ive got one......

Just got the wheel back from the repairer.
It was badly bent and its now better than new, super happy with Aldertons Wheel repairs :thumb:



Started to fit up the new seal gasket.
This is easy with liberal use of WD40

Image

Fitted the new Tractionator (by hand) What a bear of a tyre to put on.
Fitted the 990 disc and ABS ring.

Image

Cush drive

Image

Image

Bit surprised about how far out the disc was having a couple mm runout just from the bolt hole clearance so unmounted it and got it running true

Image

Im pretty chuffed today :D

Fired up the welder today....

Image

Cant decide on the suspension travel and overall height yet and did want to restrict myself to much with stand heights.
Since it already raised a bit but may end up going 30 mm more I figured Id better make and adjustable stand as I had to do something about it anyway.

Image

A 16mm Unbrako and stainless nuts should do the trick
Machined the head to fit inside the tubing

Image

And the nut for the other end

Image

And ready for welding

Image

Image

Quick clean up and a paint job and done!

Image

While I had it all apart I did the relocator as well. :thumb:

Image

All in all, got a bit done today :D
