Tubeless puncture repairs
« on: March 09, 2021, 06:00:29 pm »
I need some advice:

What is the best permanent tubeless puncture repair kit out there and what is your opinion of the following?

Mushroom plugs?

Dynaplugs?

Standard worm plugs?

Anything else available?

for me worm plugs = temporary repair
mushroom plug well fitted = permanent repair

I prefer to use these tech plugs as a road side repair. They are from natural rubber and with proper solution (blue stuff) they are quit well secured. But mushroom plug is a better fix, but not as easy to fit on the road best done at tire repair center.

I have been using worms all my life.
Never had any hassle, all lasted until end of tyre life.
Maybe I treat my tyres less harsh than some other riders.

But, I am sure plug type is more reliable.

I dont fully agree with the fitment of the mushroom plug in the video. Might have been done right off camera. But the fitment area needs to be roughed up before applying the valcunising fluid and then the mushroomplug has to be fitted. Much like applying a patch to a tube...
Just my 2cents.
What i do agree with is Go ride...

I buy them loose from my local supa quick.2 reasons i do this its cheaper than buying a box and less to get old/dirty in the topbox. It is the ones they stock for the 4x4 guys here. They even market it as safe to use on sidewalls.

I use the Stop&Go mushroom plugs.

They are smaller than the ones Tiger wheel and Tyre will fit, but for roadside repairs they are awesome.  :thumleft:

It's a mushroom plug, but you fit them from the outside, so no need to take the tyre off.

I once plugged a car tyre for a lady, with them, and it lasted from Parys (Vrystaat) on a farm till she got home in Pta.

I plugged the tyre on my 1200S some time last year and I'm still running it. Will replace when I get a new tyre  :ricky:

Here is another method.  BMW used to sell these but I don't see it anymore.
Maybe there is a reason they don't sell it anymore.
I like the idea though.  Screw in the plastic screw, break off the head and off you go.

people are over-thinking this.


To make it worse, I even use the R50 kits sold at fuel stations! Have one in each car as well

Nothing wrong with the fuel stations jobbies I also keep those in the car, set on the bike, think there is a set in the workshop.

I saw the Fortnine comparison some time ago and was surprised at the result. I also thought the mush room plug would be far superior to the the worms! I have watched many of his comparisons and I always thought he was objective and did comparisons based on engineering principles.
