Default Tubeless tyre on spoked rim

Can I fit a tube in a tubeless tyre on a spoked rim.
Is there anything I need to do differently.
I'm going to remove the rimlock and blank the hole because I don't think I'll be needing it . I'll be running the tyres on 20+ psi so shouldnt have any problems with slipping.

Shouldn't be any issues. The tubeless tyres will be a bit tighter on the rim of a spoke wheel but otherwise they will be the same as any other tyre install on spoke wheels. In regards the rim lock I've not come across those so I would just say run with a tyre and the tube inside of it. As long as you're running correct pressures you shouldn't have an issues with tyres slipping on the rims.

It really depends if the the wheel is designed to take a tubeliss tyre. Most MX, enduro wheels are spoked and can not take tubeliss tyres without aftermarket spoke sealers,

Is that the rubber strip that goes over the spoke holes inside the rim or something else

That's exactly what it is. Stops the spoke nipples puncturing the tube when its installed.

As long as its not perished or splitting it should be fine just give it a quick clean and put it back. Doesn't need to be change every time a tyres changed.
