    Hello,



    I'm a new rider and owner of a 2001 TW200 and had a couple questions I hope someone can answer. First of all I should tell you I have very little motorcycle knowledge but hope to learn more by spending more time on your site. The type of riding will be strictly off road with lots of water and mud.

    1. I'm worried about getting a flat way off road and was wondering if there were tubeless tire or other tire options available?

    2. I unplugged one of two wires that went to the headlight which gave me the ability to turn off the headlight with the main headlight switch. Does anyone know if this can cause any unwanted electrical problems?

    The only tubeless setup on the back tire I have seen is here.



    Our tires are too big for the common tubeless kits. For some $$$ you could try and find custom rims without spokes somewhere that would be a direct replacement.



    Did you unplug the high beam wire? So that if you clicked your switch to high beam your headlight would turn off?



    I had to put in a additional switch to turn off just the headlight.

    The stock tires will not take a plug. They are just too thin between the knobs. I just had a flat from a thorn. Tubes are very easy to fix. Just take the time to practice som at home to get a comfort level.
