      Re: Need to put tubeless tyre in Himalayan 2016

      I was trying to find tubeless tyre solution for Royal Enfield Himalayan with spoke wheels like the once that exist on the BMW 1200 / 850 GS, Tiger Explorer and KTM 1290 Super Adventure motorcycles. They look pretty easy to manufacture...with Holes to mount the wheels offsetting from the centre piece and set on the side or on the centre. Any idea where I can find such rims in aftermarket or local dealers and fit them on RE Himalayan?

          Hi all, plz suggest alternate tyre options for Himalayan. Tube or tubeless. I have not found any alternative but the factory fitted ceat. I heard that xpulse 200 front tyre is of same dimension. Is that an viable option?

            Sadly Himalayan, Impulse, XPulse all come with specific tyre size manufactured on demand by Ceat in India and sold only through official showrooms.
            No other options available in India as of now by other brands, maybe you can look for any International brands which are imported, it'll cost you close to ₹10-15K

            And Yes Xpulse has the exact same tyre as with Himalayan (same thread pattern, compound etc etc), so you'll get the exact same tyre from Hero or if you buy it RE.

              I feel that the grip on tarmac of the ceat tyre is not confidence inspiring. RE must think about the customer and provide better options.

                    I have heard about new tyres from Apollo, has anyone used them? They are exact fit for Himalayan could not find details anywhere though.

                      One way you could go about is,

                      1) remove the entire wheel assembly and remove the tyre, and scrum the rims, spokes clean

                      2) with the tyre removed look at the joint where the spokes connect to the rim, you would be looking from the outside where the tyre sits normally

                      3) use any sealant to seal those joints, in my classic pulsar 150 i used a silicon based caulking mix, the ones used to waterproof cracks in houses.

                      4) after the sealant is set, use a rubber piece and in a manner similar to working with a cycle tyre cover those spoke joints and mate the rubber to the rim with the sealant.

                      5) then run tests, but this is an ad hoc measure, for proper sealing you would need sealing kits which can be found on the internet with some searching.
