With a lightweight bike, the prospect of repairing a tube while out and about isn't exactly fun, but is doable. The thought of trying to fix a tube in a SCR950 wheel under the same conditions? No so much.
Now that's what i'm all about and that's what most riders in this segment usually want. Otherwise i'd buy a smaller CC bike and stick to local roads but being out on long distance riding you need to better your circumstances.With a lightweight bike, the prospect of repairing a tube while out and about isn't exactly fun, but is doable.

Removing a wheel with the tools on hand, no lift and perhaps no help on a bike this heavy makes a tubeless tire I can plug, fill & ride more promising. =)
The KLR650 I had was equipped with a center stand. I once pulled the rear wheel and took apart the entire rear suspension for regreasing using tools I could've easily had in a tool bag (minus the torque wrench).
This got me curious about consumer cost of wheel parts and here's what I found:There are positives to each tire option. You can get home with a bent wheel with a tube tire than without a tube. We're probably not seeing rims like the Tenere because tubeless spoked rims are prohibitively expensive. tubeless are better for off road riding as your can air down without bead issues.
But the scr950 is more for on road riding than off.
Oh, yea. Wallet shock indeed!That must have been a wallet shock when you added up the numbers. I'm assuming that's for both wheels and not just one. (snip).
I have used a similar product in the tubes on my 1800VTX. I put it in before my 2400 mile ride to Colorado and back. It's touted as self balancing and self sealing. Worked well in my VTX so it should work fine in the SCR as well. I will tell you this, most tire shops will charge you extra if you have that good in your tubes/tires. It can get messy when changing tires.Seeing we're talking about tyres, has anyone put Goop or a similar product in the inner tube on their SCR?
