I have a chance to get a great deal on a 2007 Honda Elite 80 in great condition. I really like the look of these scooters. But according to the manual they have tube type tires, which would make it a no go for me. I need tubeless tires so I can plug a punctured tire and ride it home. I have heard about people putting tubeless tires on the Elite's stock wheels with no tubes. Has anybody done this? Does it work? Thanks for any information.
They can go on but the rim is different so they can fail with bad results,,,I've run tube tires on my last four bikes with no problems,,,just take a tube with you and a fill kit,,,easy peasy,,,the tube and fill kit take up very little room and weight almost nothing so it's a win/win
Run a liquid flat proof in your tubes( it self balances by centrifugal force) and your good to go for a very long time. I'm been doing this for over 50 years now and it works. Your bike cannot develop enough torque to spin the inner tube and cut the valve stem.
In 1984, Honda released its first four-stroke modern scooter, the Elite 125. Later, Honda introduced the four-stroke Elite 80 (model code CH80) in 1985. Production was moved from Japan to Mexico in 1991, and production ended in 2007. The Elite 80 had a 23 model year run with only minor changes.
