Title: Got "nailed" - again!!!
Post by: chrisB on May 22, 2006, 08:48:44 pm
Got on the thumper this afternoon to go home, checked tyres as ussual and there it is - Farking flat back tyre! :evil:

Damn! 3rd time since I've had my bike. Removed the wheel at caught a lift home with a colleague and will have tube replaced tomorrow morning.

Have no one thought of a puncture resistant/proof liner for bikes yet? If not I will :wink:  

This really sucks!

I feel better now :roll:

How about some heavy duty tubes & some gorilla snot?

Should prevent the next few punctures!

Enduro tubes, or also cut the old tube down the middle, and wrap it around the new tube. Then gooi slime in, just doing it with my little stroker now and the one I hear works best is this Amerseal tyre sealant "ultimate premium heavy duty" (sounds chinese innit, but its American made)
32 oz for R80, and you need about 10oz-15oz per wheel on a motorcycle.

I got a few bottles at Suzuki Toy Store in Centurion.

This works, but can generate heat when you ride above 120km/h.

Also got nailed yesterday

So put my country trax training to the test . Used the puncture repair since ever. 20 min later all fixed up . Real easy stuff. Hardest part is to make the hole big enough

Thanx Jan / Stephen

Snot and thick German enduro tubes didn't work for me on our Frontier tour.  When you get nailed, you get nailed - finish en klaar.  Get tyre levers, repair kit and spare tubes.....

Cheers
