I have an 09 KLR650 and am ready for a new rear tire. I wanted to install the Avon Gripster and noticed it is a tubless tire and the original Dunlop K750 is a tube type tire. Will the rim accomodate a tubeless tire? or will I need to install tubes and is it safe to do so?

It will work just fine using a tubeless tire with a tube on a tube type rim. Sidewall is just a hair stiffer but you'd have to run it flat to be able to tell.
