Stan's NoTubes sealant - will it work with UST tires/wheels?

  1. I have UST tubeless wheels/tires that leak 1-2psi of air each day.

    1- Can I use the Stan's sealant only (not the entire kit) to prevent these slow leaks?

    2- Is the sealant easy to clean from the inside of the wheels when it comes time to change tires?

    3- How is the sealant applied?

    Thank you Brian

    If you are having sealing probs just use a little slime http://slime.com/ - this can help eliminate
    thorn flats too. Harbor freight has it on sale pretty often.

    2 - Yes, very. A rub with a rag is all it takes.

    Mount the tire as usual. Before inflating, place a plastic hose on the slime bottle and either
    squirt into the presta valve or bend the tire back and squeeze some under the bead. Use a couple
    ounces. Inflate as usual.

    Maybe.

    It depends on what you consider easy.

    I squirted mine in through the valve stem.
