The Stop & Go Mini-Air Compressor draws 6 amps, therefore should be OK with auxiliary power sockets on the bike.

It is - I've already had to use it once on the new RT...

Re: Sticky strings

Post by Chad »

just in case some members doubt the effectiveness of the sticky strings for tubeless tyre puncture repairs, I actually found myself with a flat on my Range Rover this week.  Out of curiosity more than anything else, I thought I'd see if these sticky's work. I found an inch long self tapper right in the middle of the tread; unscrewed it and attempted to plug the hole with the sticky using the tool. What a stupid idea that was! If I'd have considered just how hard it would be trying to push the tool through a 4x4 tyre for a 2.5 ton vehicle whilst laying on my back, I would have left the job for the local garage. Never the less I persisted and eventually got the dam thing in. And I am pleased to report that after 2 days- no pressure loss at all. If these work on a vehicle this heavy, they'll be absolutely fine on an RT.

Tried ultra seal in the past and on two occasions when the tyres have been changed the ultra seal was found to have separated ie water and a ball of what I guess was the remains of what was mixed in to seal any hole in the tyre.
I now carry a Stop and Go kit that has worked well in the past with both my and friends punctures.
I have just bought from Amazon an AirMan mini air compressor after reading a comparison test with the Slime compressor. AirMan is a Danish company that specialises in all sizes of compressors. It's well made and includes a built in gauge all for £18.99.
