However, a few things to consider:
Tubeless: When you get a flat you can rapidly repair with a plug (don't use goo) and a pump, however best practices say a plug is an emergency repair to get home and then you need to replace the tire.
Tubed: When you get a flat you need to remove the tire and replace the tube and that's more difficult on the side of the road but the tire is OK
So: First 10 years, tubed, I got no flats. Next 20 years tubeless and I had 3 flats. The first time I had no tire plug kit. Had to tow the bike to a mechanic. He wouldn't plug the tire because I had a long way to ride to get home. Took a few days for a new tire to be delivered. Next flat, I had the tire plug kit but my portable air compressor failed. Four hours later, the tow guy had an air compressor. When I got home I was told a plug is a temporary fix (it makes the hole larger) and I should replace the tire. I don't know but who wants to take a chance with tires? 3rd time lucky. I had a $20 tire plug kit and a $40 air compressor that I had been carrying for about 8 years. Every time I looked at them I thought: jeez that takes up a lot of space, but now I had them so plugged and inflated. Back home I still buy a new tire.
In 1995 I bought a spoked/tubed ACE so stuffed an inner tube in a leather toolkit pouch. In 20 years I got 2 flats but now we all have cell phones. Called the tow guy to tow it to nearest mechanic. Tube in . Tire is still good. When I got home I bought another spare tube and rim strip $20
Morals of the story: you don't get a lot of flats. When a calamity happens you will not have the correct tool/part/ability/lighting/energy to correct the problem. Tubeless ends up costing more money while tubed makes you feel inadequate. This is why we do it.
The guy I bought my bike from said he would find it and send it to me.
Anyone have one?
I bought one online, but I'm about 99% sure it was miss marked and isn't what I need.
I'm in Eugene Or.
I need several body parts due to grandson mowing down a mail box post. Looking for reasonable priced used parts to restore it to running condition. I read that 1999 - 2007 VLX parts are compatible.
Any or all parts considered.
