I had a look at a newish Suzuki ( Vstrom possibly) today, and it had 17 & 19 rims like the Tiger. The spoked rims are tubeless and I'm wondering if there might be any way to lace them on to Triumph hubs as they both seem to be 32 spoke.
The problem as I see it is that the spokes are reversed and the Suzuki has the spoke nipples inboard and the "hooks" outboard.
Has anybody here considered this option for tubeless tyres ?

I spent a fair amount of time trying to source tubeless rims for my XT660 and if you want to go the commercial route as opposed to some of the DIY solutions on here be prepared to put your hand in your pocket cuz cheap they ain't.
