FAQ of the tubeless kit
Q1 How difficult is the installation process?
A1 You don’t need to have a special skills or talent, just read the enclosed instruction in advance and follow carefully.
Q2 Should I be worried about the potential of air leaks/deflation after installation?
A2 Please read and understand the contents of the installation sheet before attempting to install.
When you install it correctly, it will surely not have any leaks. In the rare event there was some installation issue or damage causing an air leak we have included repairing tape.
Q3 How can I remove the bumps of the welded rim?
A3 Even if there are bumps, usually that it does not cause any leaks. However it is recommended to remove the bumps.
Q4 Is there any way to check success of the installation prior to using the wheel?
A4 Immediately after installation, the adhesion of the tape is not at full strength, so take care when fitting tire on the rim. After the tire has been fitted, put the air pressure in 36 PsI – 2.5 kilo, Then put it in the water tank for you to see and check if there is any air leak , Before riding, be sure to adjust tire pressure as recommended by the tire manufacturer.
Q5 what kind of durability/life can I expect from my Outex tubeless kit?
A5 The durability/life of the main tape used in our kit is subject to many variables, however as a guide in outdoors usage it is about 5-10 years provided it is not exposed to UV for extended periods of time, Because of its intended application area on the internal of a wheel rim and therefore removed from any UV exposure the expected durability (assuming no damage from user) is excellent and towards the upper end of the time frame previously mentioned.
Q6 How can I repair or replace damaged spokes?
A6 By rotating the nipple you can remove the spokes, if you can’t remove some parts of it. Please cut the protection seal and the double sided tape around the nipple in question, then after removal and replacement of the spokes be sure to put a seal and double sided tape again for the new spokes repair area.
Q7 If there is rain or if I would have a car wash is there any possibility for the water to get in to the tire.
A7 There is almost zero possibility for the water to get in because of the adhesive tape strength and the air pressure,
Q8 After installing my tubeless kit is it better to use tubeless tires?
A8 Basically we recommend you to use the tubeless tires, but some users are also using the tube type tire, and there is no report such as air leak. But the usage of the tube tire doesn’t have any guarantee.
But our company and our professional riders (many ex-factory racers) did extensive testing in extreme conditions and there was no air leaks at all.
