- tubeless blowout – what have I done wrong ?
I had similar a problem, but I found a 2 inch thorn in the tyre. My theory is that the sealant didnt seal hole quick enough which led to burping which then led to the thing rolling off the rim totally. I dont have a tubeless specific rim, so it’s a good theory imo. Surprised it’s happened on a ZTR though. BUT this is the first incident in 6 months, I previously had punctures every other ride, so i’m sticking with it and eventually will replace the rim. Basically, I think you’ve been unlucky, stick with it.Posted 4 years ago
no its not a tubeless tyre.
The pressure was supposed to be 35psi but on the road run in it did feel a little low/squishy for my liking. On the off road/rocky section it felt great until the ‘booooom’
Will swap the tyre over with an Ardent on my son’s bike & try again.Posted 4 years ago
& you are not allowed to say ‘going tubeless’
This is my first venture in to tubless & it all appeared to be going so well. Built it up. Held its pressure at 35psi in the garage for a week.
Rode it up/down some rocks – all appeared good.
Went for a night ride & 90 minutes in the tyre blew off the rim completely with a loud bang when I went over a totally innocuous rock having ridden loads all ready
Build – Newly built up ZTR 355 with an almost (100km) new Panracer Fire Xc Pro kevlar beaded tyre.
My guess is I try a different tyre.Posted 4 years agosoobaliasMember
shortcuts to tubeless ‘can’ work, but they fail much more often than doing it properly.
ask people with UST rims and UST Tyres how many failures they have. Even with TLR, 2Bliss and LUST tyres failure rates are low it seems
OP, my personal experience with Stans is not great, but combining with a normal tyre is where you have gone wrong.Posted 4 years agoDenDennisMember
OP – was it a ‘burp’ or a blowout?Posted 4 years ago
I’ve had both, sounds more like a blowout from your description.
only had these where the pressure is too HIGH, literally stretching the bead off the rim and damaging it beyond use.
Can you still fit the tyre on?
a burp can happen even with UST tyre and rim systems,
but I’ve never had one with ZTR rims, stans-compatible normal tyres (eg maxxis, schwalbe) AND the right rimstrip.
are you using rimstrip or just the tape?unklehomeredSubscriber
Yeah, the normal tyre on Stans is usually fine but the oddest little thing can sometimes blow the tyre clean off. I’ve had with Maxxiz advantage and crossmark. Have given up on gone lust for the rear tyre now. Does seem to be a rear specific scenario. Other than that non UST tyres will loose air, and you could put some electrical tape round the rim to make a snugger fitPosted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Panaracers can be like wizard’s sleeves… You need to be a wee bit cautious using non-tubeless tyres, most do work but not all.
I blew a non-tubeless Clutch off my Flow Ex the other night, not sure whether the bead was damaged beforehand, certainly was after! Think probably the former, was a well used tyre.Posted 4 years agoEcky-ThumpMember
Try a Maxxis and you’ll be fine. UST & dual ply both work really well but I’ve also run single ply tubeless without any issues on the front of an XC bike.
Bontrager & Specialized have also been good for me.
I’ve not used the 355 but I do have Crest, Flow & Flow EX, all running tubeless with just the yellow tape.Posted 4 years ago
