Is this for tubeless tyres?

Anyone has info on shops in chennai having it in stock? My pulsar rim is running tubeless on old alloys and hence pressure goes down fast.

Yeah, that's the amount for tubeless ( extra 50 ml he said, just as my rear tire is 140 section )
otherwise - its 250 ml both tires.

All the best for your ride. make sure your helmet should have a clear glass. or else if its tinted you will have to keep it open at night and insects will hit you in such a way like someone is bombarding on your face. my bad luck same happened with me....
cheers.!!

Remember, this is a endurance ride. It will test your patience (and your butt; ain't called Saddle Sore for fun) to the limit! Keep your eyes on the goal (and also on the road)!

Meet you at the start point at 00:00hrs tomorrow

Can someone from Pune side give their contact to Ace, just on case he needs assistance?

So is it 00:00 hrs tonight that he is starting off?? And where is the start point again? Coz I will be near the NICE road entrance near Bannerghatta road by that time since I am driving down to Coorg. If that is the start point, then I can catch up and flag you off along with the Hawk!!
