Hi,
Are the rims on the AT Mt type or WM.
Thanks

from motorcycle news:
You can fit tubeless tyres with tubes, but there are caveats. The first is that the rim has to be an MT-type rim. If it is marked as a WM-type rim you can only fit tubed tyres. If the inside of the tyre is ribbed, that can chafe against the tube, generating heat and wear.

Sooo just got off phone with dealer the will not mount tubeless tire to a tube type rim.
This really stinks as it cuts down my tire options considerably.

Never heard of such a thing as a dealer refusing to put a tube in tubeless tire. Find another dealer or get yourself some good tire irons and do it yourself. Tubes in most tubeless tires work fine. I have used them on my dual-sport bike for years. Never had a problem.

They had safety concern regarding the bead on a tube type rim as opposed to a tubeless type rim.
