    Hi there all,
    I've recently had the dreaded puncture (luckily, spotted it before getting on the bike on sat) and I ordered this on amazon and an oxford 2 canister air kit.
    Bloody brilliant. Worked a treat and it's certified to be a permanent repair too.
    I would’ve changed the tyre BUT it's loads of life left and it was in the middle (ish).
    Well recommend chaps.

    I've done thousands of miles on plugged tyres, and even a burnout towards the end of ones life to test the plug. No problems at all :)

    I have been carrying one of those on longer journeys with air canisters for a few years now, good to know they work.

    Interesting. I have a usual repair kit. I'll look at that one and try to balance how better it is. I may end buying one, and hope I'll never use it :)

    In the past I had a puncture an a former bike. I could have done without this experience! o_O
    Therefore I am now carrying a repair kit with 3 air cardridges and some other small tools on my daily rides with me. When riding long tours I add a tool set with common parts too.

    would you need 50 co2 canisters fill a rear? would a mini compressor be better?

    I've seen these kind of very portable compressor. Could be a good invert (30 bucks) to travel.

    Now that looks a VERY good idea.
    Pumps motorbike tyres 6 times on one charge apparently.
    1031 reviews on amazon too so worth a go!?
    Thanks for posting!

    very interesting. most of my stuff uses tubes, and so i have always carried short tire irons and an inner tube patch kit. the patches and cement degrade over time, so i buy new periodically. when i travel longer distances i've always carried a short bicycle pump to re-inflate a tire. standard equipment in the old days

    similar solutions are still available in smaller sizes and probably better quality

    Does it leave the brass tip in the tyre?

    Yep, it does.
    But it's kind of glued in place by the sticky rubber bit. It's not going anywhere!

    It dosnt matter how many canisters you pump into the tyre, they will still only get you to around 20psi. Good enough to get you to a garage.

    With my luck the battery would be flat when I needed it most!

    that's why the low-tech solutions continue to be viable. three minutes cursing a hand pump are better than an hour out and another back spent hitchhiking to a service station with a compressor, carrying your wheel

    When I'm touring I carry stop&go with a mini compressor. It all fits nicely in the kriega 5ltr pack.

    My battery operated compressor that is similar to @Hubaxe’s post #8 also comes with a 12v plug to power it from the bike/cars charge/lighter socket.

    Helpful should the internal battery ever be flat.

    Have not seen anyone on here mention "Punture-Safe or Ultraseal
    permanent repair solution injected into the tyre (not tubed type)
    and permanently repairs a puncture, our local M/cycle club been using it for 20 years
    and in the UK every Royal Mail road vehicle is treated, does not affect balance
    and is injected via the valve, a chart gives details of the quantity to inject
    as it obviously varies by tyre size, is rated as safe after a repair up to 120mph
    BMW motorcycle owners club evaluated and recommended the product
    I think "Puncture-Safe" was an UK name and "Ultraseal the US brand
    no need to carry any puncture emergency kit of any description
    it is already inside the tyre and seals the puncture whist on the move

    Hi Bikerman,
    Only disagreed with the need to carry a repair kit
    on any bike, due to our club's years of experience with
    pre treatment with ultraseal solution (available from Amazon)
    I was not criticizing your suggestion, only disagree with the need to
    carry any repair kit,
    no personal offence intended.
    Cheers Clive1

    I can’t comment on the efficacy of motorcycle tyre puncture repair kits but I can on the use of CO2 as an inflation gas. It has the ability to make its way through butyl rubber. So if you have used one of these kits, get some air (or pure nitrogen) in your tyres by the next day.

    ps. And don’t use pure nitrogen to start up Ivchenko radial engines. They won’t start. Doh...
