I go through the steps I took to convert the factory original (OEM) wheels for my 2017 Honda Africa Twin motorcycle from tubed to tubeless. The basic procedure I used was: (1) Remove the wheels from the bike and the tires from the wheels. (2)Clean the wheels thoroughly, first with soapy water and a scrub brush, then with wire brushes, then with acetone. (3) Apply 3M Marine Adhesive Sealant Fast Cure 5200 to the spoke holes. (4) Prepare the wheels for taping using isopropyl alcohol (50/50 mix). (5) Tape wheels with 3M Extreme Sealing Tape 4411N. (6) Install Drag Specialties valve stems ( #0360-0010). (7) Re-assemble wheels, tires, and put back on the motorcycle.
