Tire Repair kits - July 30, 2007, 01:38 PM

Anyone use em? My company just started to fully stock the Black jack Tire Repair Kits, which is odd seeing we are a wholesale plumbing specialties distributor... but wanted to know if anyone has plugged or patched motorcycle tires. I never have. Anyone use this particular brand?

And, before you all ask, no, I can't get a ton of these for you all. I work for a private wholesaler, and you would have to get them as a plumbing customer, non-homeowner, commercial or government property. But I may be able to try to get a few. No promises.

I personally wouldn't trust a tire repair kit as far as I could throw it. Call me paranoid but if the plug blows out at 65mph the consequences are far more deadly than if the plug blows out at 65mph in your car.

Maybe to get from where you got the hole back home, very carefully, but not on a ride at speed..... But thats just me. They very well could be just fine.

I totally agree with not doing ride speed. I've known people that look like me in the mirror, hehe, to use fix-a-flat on three out of four tires. I, err, he, hehe, didn't change tires for months! but on a bike its alot different ofcourse.

Any products that you guys recommend for roadside repair, like a temporary fix to get home from the boonies (plug/patch plus something like co2 catridges)? I should get around to picking up something for the tankbag on long weekend trips.

Hell is a can of fixaflat sufficient?

+1 in a cage it's a different matter but a motorcycle tire is designed much different, I never had and never will patch a sportbike tire.
