I don't think he meant "goop" as in "some silly messy glue stuff".
Ha!, good for you!!

it would be a great idea for someone to call a dealer and ask them about the spoke sealing and tubeless tire modification.
it might be a little awkward but it will give us all a little more input.
i already know what a dealer would say.....
or better yet call a honda rep and tell them about the issue.
i would love to hear what they say!!

Thanks for everyone's input. As for my original question,,,i guess the 5200 is still the best way to go. Thanks Capt Rory,i will get a bigger tube, i was surprised to see 5200 and bought what they had on hand. I haven't thought about West Marine since i lived in gulfport. I've got enough formal training and experience working on things, from boats to bikes to military flir night vision systems to autos to side by sides, automatic overdrive transmissions, fuel injection, that i can figure out most things on my own but i still like to have educated input and in this case other input also. But i guess some people don't have enough of a life that they have to chime on on something they actually have no relevant info on. I have ridden motor cycles for the last 42 years and i have never had anyone work on a piece of equipment. If it breaks I fix it. If it needs maintained, I am the only one that has ever turned a wrench on any machine i own. Car, boat, bike, camper, lawn mower, chainsaw, if its broke i can fix it and if anybody knows me they know that. If somebody thinks I'll half- ass anything i work on they surely don't know me and they must be really dumb to assume things about someone they don't know. But momma said there would be people like that.o well.

Same here. Nothing I can't fix, build, or destroy.

'04 1300S or at least used to be.

Also check Home Depot. They should have the bigger tube also and be cheaper than West Marine.

I'm interested in doing this and have just a couple of questions:

1. Do you have the rubber rim protector, the thing that normally goes between the tube and the rim, over the 5200 or just leave the 5200 there and go with a tire right over top?

2. Did you put the tire on or did you have a shop do it? I've only attempted tire replacement once, on a tractor, and it was a total pain in the balz. I'm worried that if I brought a tire and my 'modified' rim to a shop they would refuse to put it on for me.

3. If you put the tire on yourself, how do you seal it against the rim?

4. What do you use to balance your tires? The article I posted mentions Dyna Beads... they look interesting (if I were to mount my own tires) but I always like to hear first-hand experience.

Ha, going Darkside is why I sealed my spokes in the first place. Choke on that Skeet.

No, tossed in trash. IMO, it serves no purpose anymore.

2. Did you put the tire on or did you have a shop do it? I've only attempted tire replacement once, on a tractor, and it was a total pain in the balz. I'm worried that if I brought a tire and my 'modified' rim to a shop they would refuse to put it on for me.

When I sealed mine I put a car tire on it and mounted it myself. It was not that bad, but I have a ton of experience in dealing with many kinds of tires. I run a 230 MC tire on it now and I did bring it to a local shop to mount. It has super stiff sides and was more than I cared to fool with without a machine. They should not give you any problems, just explain that the wheel is sealed and not to put a tube in it. If they do, go elsewhere.

3. If you put the tire on yourself, how do you seal it against the rim?

If the tire does not meet up with the rim enough to be seated you can put a binder strap around the tire and it will push the sidewalls out enough to seal.

4. What do you use to balance your tires? The article I posted mentions Dyna Beads... they look interesting (if I were to mount my own tires) but I always like to hear first-hand experience.

I use Dyna Beads. If you have a shop mount it remember to tell them not to balance it.


I know you asked Charlie, but see my answers in red above.
