    I used 3M 5200 Marine sealant and adhesive. Put a blob on each spoke head and leave for 12hours, after which a skin has formed over the sealant. You can then shape and press it gently to fill the spoke well.
    I then used 3M 4412 adhesive sealing tape. No need to wait for the sealant to fully dry just go straight on. Fix something up so you can balance and spin the wheel whilst applying the tape. Take your time and get the air bubbles out as you go.
    Preparation is the key, make sure the rim is super clean before commencing the job. I used brake cleaner.

    You will obviously need new valves. It's best to start the job when you have the valves, the tyres can then be pumped up and the pressure will help to seal before everything sets.
    I would leave the original rim protector out as this can shift around the rim now it's sat on nice slidey tape and can block the valve. You then have to remove the wheel again to get the protector out. DAMHIK. I bought a tyre pressure monitoring kit, which was £42 and works very well. Tyres have worked faultlessly, apart from a puncture of course.

    Total cost to seal the wheels was around £45. plus my time. There are a couple of useful videos on You Tube.

    Might try this on my Eldorado as well. Although the wheels are tubeless their habe been reports of "leakage" from the spokes when the O rings dry out. Would still love a set of Jonich wheels though.

    Lack of guard wouldn’t do that front cover any favours, but the owners lack of reasonable care is the main contributor to its condition.

    Bet he gurned like fek to the dealer......

    One of the best screens I ever had on my F series of bikes & my 1200's..
    And have one to go on my current 700GS, as I've just fecked my Wunderlich Vario screen..
    Hopefully it will be as good on the V85TT..




    The Spanish owners views on the new screen...

    I had Guzzi's high windshield and I didn't think it was very effective.
    With Givi's, everything changed: in the city with him low or without the top, perfect.
    On a raised highway it is very effective in the wind.
    In short: Happy with the change!
