Just a plain automotive one with the big ol' sticky ~4inch plugs, reamer and tool? Sounds like a good plan, since I already have a small bicycle pump.

I've plugged a LOT of car tyres with those. Works well, whether or not you burn the ends.

I'll have to stop by WW and see if my cases are in yet. They were supposed to be a few weeks ago, but it's always "should be by next week" when I check
It's not like it's a rush.

I'm still half-assed looking for a set of engine protection bars that are a combination of good, not ridiculously spendy, and which don't need to be removed in order to check valve clearances. Also not a rush, hence the current half-assedness.

Weather's looking unpromising. Put the GL1200 to bed for the winter. KLR's in garage just in case.

I have a sense you got vandalized. Just given the neighborhood your in and all.

I'm really enjoying the pictures posted from rides and even gun shooting. Thanx for posting! It's bazaar to see landscapes so odd like the red Mohave, then to see snow mixed in the shots it's interesting!

I've been carrying a can of that stuff in my tool tube on the klr thinking that in an emergency I'd give it a try. I have no experience with it and kinda wonder how effective it would be in a tubed tire anyway. I have my doubts. But I continue to carry it.....
Bought it at Menards in Grand Forks
Has anyone ever tried this in a tubed tire????

After a few beers, we should test it out, how about in the hot tub!!!! I am sure we will leave some kind of a memorable impression on the locals.

I used it in a tubeless tire 25+ years ago, and it got me home.
No reason why it couldn't do the same with a tube, as long as the prick that punctured it in the first place was removed.

BMW or TT. The TT you don't have to remove fully,some people say. I like the BMW,you can get at the engine without removing. It saved my engine twice so far and you can see only little scratches( but it did break a weld as you know ). I might not even get it rewelded because it's not that important for the crash bar. Altrider would be my third choice.

As stated before, I don't think it broke a weld...

The CanTire flyer was advertising the repair can last year with the disclaimer that it wasn't available in Manitoba. Apparently the government of our province considers the release of the contents too harmful to the environment. So you can't buy those cans here. I picked up a can in Saskatchewan a couple of years ago when hauling a small trailer just in case, still have it but should see if there's an expiry date.

I heard it will work on a tube only if its a small hole, not a tear.

Woops!

Nice pic, looks separated, but EXACTLY like another I've seen.
Until someone pulls a guard off and take a serious look, I wouldn't worry.

Stop throwing that bike around! They're not built for it... Get an RT.

Otherwise... Look for a warranty...
