DIY Tubeless Conversion from BestRest

Recommended Posts

@David Petersen put this interesting video together on how you can convert your tube type rear rim to a tubeless set up.  I think it's a great idea given 99% of my flats are rear flats and a plug solution is a 10 min stop vs 45 min (if you're good) for a tubed tire fix.

My brother and I just did something similar on our Africa Twins, it was a great improvement. I have a tire pressure monitor on mine, the tire temps are about 10-15 degrees cooler than they were with tubes. We ride hard and worked the bikes hard over rocks and horrible dirt roads all the way to Flagstaff from Phoenix without any issues.

Hmmm, I just put a tube in my tubeless front tire on my V-strom because I keep denting the rim and blowing the bead off, even with 35psi?  Seems to work and in WA I'm not worried about temp.
