Having received my kit recently I thought I'd better fit it, starting with the rear wheel. The instructions are good, as are the YouTube videos. All is well at the moment, the only time consuming part was grinding the nipple down a touch.
It's interesting that the rims have the bead retained lip, so in the event of a puncture the bead should stay seated.
Well worth it for quick puncture repairs on spoked wheels!

I'll be doing mine in a 2 or months when the rear tyre wears out. So make sure you do a good write up :)

I bought mine direct from Outex through their eBay shop. They had a sale price at the time of £78. Once carriage and duties were added it cost about the same as it would from the UK importers SupermotoDaz Limited.
I had already emailed an enquiry to Supermotodaz but they didn't bother to reply :angry:

Thanks Derek,definitely something I'm going to do when it's time for new rubber,especially as I have already suffered the inconvenience of a punctured tubed tyre on the scrambler.

Mine was from the Outex eBay store as well. To be honest, the videos on YouTube are far better than any write up. For example, the double sided tape is difficult to apply smoothly, but when you watch the video you see that's normal.

Any rim will take a tubeless tyre but rims designed for tubeless tyres have a lip around then to help hold the bead in place if the pressure drops. You can see them in Nuttynicks picture.

Thanks, Derek. I didn't know that either, so thanks for asking, Elvisto.

As Derek has shown, the additional lips hep hold the bead secure without air pressure. The problem without them would be getting pressure back in the tyre after a tubeless repair.
