Converting stock sm tires to tubeless

Recommended Posts

Hey guys and gals, I have been seriously considering making the tubless conversation for my drz400sm stock tires, after 2 flats in 3 weeks:blink:. Has anyone done this? Are there any disadvantages? Cornering tilt degree affected? Feel when riding change? How tough is doing the actual conversion yourself and what tools do I need? :unsure:

Lets hear what everyone's opinions are or what they have heard or seen about this.

Cheers! Happy riding!:DB)

do a search for "tubeless" and you'll see my right up. Called "My tubeless experience" so far it's awesome, makes a tire repair very easy. Especially on a long ride, definitely worth it. Ill never run a tube again, after all a tube is kind of a old school thing on a motorcycle.

Also makes changing tires extremely quick :-) do it man you won't regret it! One major thing I've noticed is vibration is reduced quite a bit. I don't feel it threw the pegs or handlebars near as bad. I didn't even re-balance my tires after either. Good luck :-)

      Hi,
      I have a 2003 DRZ (actually a KLX400) and the head tube bearings are shot.  I ordered a new set to install but I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations on other parts I should replace while I have the front disassembled.  I was thinking about new rubber fork protectors, but are there other things that wear out on the DRZ front ends that you can only get to when disassambled?
      I also broke off a replacement key that I got for the steering lock.  I must have been made of cheap pot-metal.  Should I just remove the whole lock mechanism?
      Any tips or tricks for getting the old bearings out and the new ones in would be welcome!
      Thanks!

      Hey Guys,
      I recently bought a 2003 DRZ400S and thought it would be a good idea to check the valves clearance etc . I timed the engine on TDC with the magneto mark aligned as per the manual but I find the cam timing slightly odd. The arrows pointing upward are on the 1st and 15th pin as they should but with the magneto timing mark aligned they are not perfectly straight. Same goes for the arrows that should be parallel to the cylinder head casing. Is this normal or should they be absolutely perfect ?

      My bike was stolen, so I'm liquidating my spare parts. 
      I took this off my S and replaced it with an SM unit so my speed would be more accurate with the street wheel setup.  I no longer need this spare.  I greased it regularly and it was in good working order when I removed it.  Included is only what is pictured.  Cable not included.
