    So has anyone fitted one of these kits or similar to their V7 II rims?
    I see from google a Loop Frame Guzzi owner has done the conversion and the ducati guys seem to like using carbon kevlar tape.
    Just looking into ways of making my bike easier to tour with.
    And no i dont want alloy wheels.

    I've done my own silicone sealing. At 5+ years now with zero issues. Seems this "kit" is mostly 3M's 4412N sealing tape, and the off-road guys are wrapping it with gorilla tape for added protection. Rim prep is 100% of the success.
    Off-roaders give it a thumbs up, street guys give mixed reviews. For a $30 roll of tape on Amazon, might be worth a shot (with a 50/50 health and well being risk). Let us know if you try it and how it works out.

    Since I'm new here i keep finding old threads of interest so I'll chime in here. I successfully sealed the spoke wheels on my 650 Royal Enfield using the method Todd mentions. There are several proven "home brew" variations on the silicone sealer/3M tape method.

    The commercial Outex kit from Japan gets good reviews but it costs $100 +.

    Prep is everything on this task but done correctly it lends peace of mind "out there".

    I looked into having it done at a well known wheel specialty shop but by the time I shipped my bare wheels the job could bump into the $600 range. I did it myself for about $30. The money I saved I then spent on a NO MAR tire changer!!!

    A year back when I was in the process of the same kit conversion this advrider.com/f/threads/outex-tubless-conversion.1296939/ conversation helped me a lot. And it's working fine and well.:)
