    Any opinions on using the DT conversion kit versus the Stan's conversion kit for taking the XR400 tubeless? The Stan's kit is less expensive and available at the LBS, but I have heard that the DT kit works better for this wheel. Thanks again for the help!

    I used the Stan's kit. Had virtually no issues. Got the Maxxis Ikon on with a hand pump but had to use a compressor for the Ardent. Would highly recommend using a compressor for both tires. Hand pump was a pain even though I got it to work for one tire. Can't speak for the DT conversion kit as I have not used it.

    I just converted my XR 400 Rims to tubeless yesterday using Stan's Kit and a pair of Ground Control 2.3 2Bliss tires. I have yet to take my first ride, but the air seems to be holding. My front tire went on with a high volume floor pump. The rear tire needed a compressor. My LBS recommended the 1" Gorilla tape over the Stans' Rim tape. I agree with the post above. A compressor definitely makes it easier.

    Thanks for the replies. It sounds like I'll go the Stan's route and save a few bucks without compromising the conversion.
