Assembly method for tires with WM-type rims



The fact that the OUTEX tubeless kit can also be used with WM-type rims without any problems has become well-known, and recently it has become common-place for adventure-type (KTM990 ADVENTURE or CRF1000L Africa Twin / etc.) front 21-inch rims to be changed to tubeless as well.


However, caution is required when assembling the tire after executing the kit, because if you attempt to insert the tire with all your strength using a tire iron in some cases the protective seal which is not yet stuck tightly may peel off.

When assembling the tire you must be careful to make sure that the tire's bead part does not hang on the protective sheet.

It is important that the tire bead on the side opposite the side you are attempting to inlay the tire into with a tire iron is set into the center of the rim, so when doing the work alone, if you either insert the tire using screw clamps as in the following image, or use a large clamping band to prevent the tire bead from opening, it is possible to inlay the tire easily without damaging the protective sheet.

Attempting to force the tire together with the bead of one side of the tire off center from the rim will result in damage to the protective sheet.

By putting air in the tire after assembling it with tire bead in the center of the rim the protective sheet will be set into position into the bead of the rim while pressing the protective sheet into the rim

The next time the tire is changed, the internal pressure will cause the protective sheet to adhere firmly, so the tire can be changed as normal.

But you should still please use bead cream.
