My wife gave me this kit 3 or 4 years ago at Christmas. Been in the saddlebag ever since. We were on a long trip down to Big Bend, Texas and thanks to their chip-seal pavement I wore out my tires. Had new tires installed at San Antonio dealership. Less than 1,000 miles into trip home I picked up a nail. I'm here to tell you that no one will touch a motorcycle tire repair. I dug out my Aerostich Repair Kit and plugged it myself. I would suggest that if you are not familiar with tire plugs that you practice with an old tire at home. Makes it easier when you are on the road. (Posted on 5/15/13)
I bought this kit after my two attempts with the plug type kit didn't work. This kit is nicely packaged but missing directions, unlike my plug kit. While it's easy enough to figure that you've got to insert the rope into the hole ... the instructions could answer questions like how best to apply the glue (if at all) and how long to let it set (if at all).
At first the rope/patch appeared to be holding pressure, but after just a few seconds I heard the glue pop (I had put some in the hole before the rope) and leaking started.
It was a drywall screw that punctured the tire to begin with, something I think is common, but maybe the hole created is just too big for these temporary fixes. (Posted on 2/20/12)
