    Sealant removal via syringe - product search

    I now have 8 bikes that are tubeless and one with mulefut rims which are notorious for how hard tires fit and how hard they can be to break the bead on. My most recent wheel/tire build was tough to get a good seal on and I added a good deal more sealant than I'd normally add. I'd like to remove some sealant without having to break the bead. I remember seeing a product that was pretty much a syringe with a small tube that one could put down the presta core to allow you to suck out the sealant. I have tried to do a home made fit of a tube to some small syringes but I have had no luck. Can anyone point me to the product that allows one to suck out sealant through the presta valve with the core removed?

    I would honestly break the bead and take some out rather than trying to find or pay for a tube to suck it out.

    How much extra did you put? Like 10oz instead of 4~5?

    Doubt that's going to work. Just leave it in, not hurting anything.
