Thanks for the input everyone. I received the stuff today from Amazon. Did more reading. They claim the post office, some police departments, EMS services. uses it. I am going this route because, it is crazy to pay a dealer 20 bucks to break the bead so I can lever the tire off , then pay them 30 bucks to mount it and balance it . Then you have the ugly ass wheel weights. So I bought a set Motion Pro bead breaker tire irons and rim shields. I have already converted the rear to tubeless. 3M tape and Loctite 290. IT IS WORKING WONDERFULLY. Hopefully this stuff will solve the need to stick wheel weights on, improve the resistance to flats, make the tires last longer. See above, 2300 miles is all I got out of the stock tire. No wheelies, no burn-outs, always the proper inflation. I do ride hard, no chicken strips, and I do ride fast. I had previously bought a new rear a couple months ago when it was on sale. I was expecting to get 3500 miles or so out of the stock tires, but not even close. Hopefully my rear to front use ration will be 2:1. We are receiving a lot of rain today, so no opportunity to try it out. Maybe later this week. I'll report back after a week or so. Thanks, again.
