Yes I agree that would be the hot setup!
I will keep this in mind for future..

Order placed.

Thanks!

Thanks NWBoarder and all who have ordered.

TyreGuardian

Just want to thank Jim Thomas of TyreGuardian for the prompt delivery of a product that I believe will have many of us feeling a little (to a lot) safer when we pull out onto the freeway, where anything can happen, anything can be laying in our path, and on 2 wheels, "it" happens fast.

I would like to get this thread started so we have someplace to consolidate our experiences with TyreGuardian, both the Product and the Company.

So far, Jim has been nothing but a class act, responding promptly to my questions and the delivery of his product at a great price. Even encouraging us to allow others to "jump in" with us on the placement of our orders with a very nice one time discount. There is still a nice discount being offered to all ADVRider members.

Has anybody had an opportunity to actually do an installation yet? About how long does it take? Did you take it to your dealer or mechanic to have it done? Do you think it compares favorably to it's competition in performance and cost?

I would like to know what others are thinking, or have I just bought some false sense of security?

There is a "Sticky" on the forum that provides a great introduction to this product. It's worth a look.

Tom ...

I would recommend you install it yourself, but do one tire at a time. Use the supplied valve core remover, let the air out, stick the supplied clear hose into the valve stem, slowly start pouring the liquid to the desired amount, and let it flow out of the clear tube then remove, reinstall the valve core, fill with air and go for a ride. Caution: when removing the valve core, do it slowly and put your free hand over the valve area in case the valve core goes shooting out from the air blast you can sort of block it from flying away.

I put the bike on the center stand, did the rear wheel first, ran the engine, put the bike in gear and let the rear wheel spin for a few minutes, then did the front and went for a ride. If you spill some, don't panic. Let it dry, even on your skin and then it just peels off like a latex skin. Or, you can just wash it off before it dries.

Thanks Jim for the great deal and service

My pleasure, thank you for the kind words. Gadget Boy your description of an installation is perfect.

If you are as hairy as I am, it's best to wash it off with soap and water before it dries. It will take some hair with it when you peel it off!
Jim

Looks like a great alternative to Ultraseal.

Question - has this been tested in BMW bikes with Tire Presser Monitors fitted?

Are there any problems installing it with them?

Thanks for the question Dominatio. You won't have any problems installing and using TyreGuardian with a TPMS. Just make sure the valve core is clear after installation.

If required you can clear the stem by blowing air into it prior to reinserting the valve stem core. Wheel mounted and valve stem mounted TPMS are not affected by TyreGuardian.
Great question!
Thanks,
Jim

I am assuming you tried to purchase online and it would not let you ship to the UK. I will contact our tech people and get an answer for you asap.
Thanks,
Jim

Try this distributor in Czechoslovakia Dominatio.http://www.tyreguardian.cz/

I believe you might find the shipping costs far less than coming from the U.S.A.
Thanks for your patience.
Jim

So for an F800GS you would

Deflate the front or rear tire
Remove the stem
Fill tube with recommended amount of TyreGuardian
Insert stem
Inflate to proper pressure
Drive for a few miles for the tube to get coated
repeat for other tire


Sounds easy. Did I miss anything?
