This GS looks awesome with the spoked wheels. Apparently they are are available (with tubeless option) from Rally Raid Products in the UK. This image was from GS post in FB.

exhaust below photo from Rally Raids FB post.Any word on price?
I'm guessing it will be expensive, like $1000+
No, a screw or a nail will pierce a tubeless tire just as easily as a tubed one. But you can plug a tubeless tire in a few minutes, pump it up, and be back on your way. Whereas fixing flat on a tubed tire, especially on a rear tire, can drag on into hours of work. Not much fun doing that trailside on a hot afternoon out in the desert, especially without a center stand. DAMHIK.This may seem like a dumb question but what's the advantage of running a tubeless tire? Less chance for a flat?
Totally agree, then $1100+ for the Akrapovic exhaust and your at around $2500, **** near half the price of theBut hey, if you have a spare US$1,400 just lying around, and like the way those wheels looks, go ahead and buy them. I think they look reeeel purty.
Hi Remy - Rally Raid Products are a UK manufacturing company, but they ship worldwide using UPS directly to customers. Their website shop allows you to purchase in a range of currencies, included USD of course.Love the looks of those spoked wheels, and a definite fit for the GS. Unfortunate that they are based out of the UK, wonder what alternatives can be found locally (North America). This may seem like a dumb question but what's the advantage of running a tubeless tire? Less chance for a flat?
Hi Tickster - yes, those bikes have the Rally Raid shock and fork kits fitted - obviously differently springs will available in a range of rates depending on the rider-weight/load carried and your intended use.Thanks for that teaser video.
Does that GS in the video have any suspension modifications?
Looks like it came close to bottoming out on that modest little jump.
