Iíve plugged a few tyres with the worm plugs. With good prep and generous solution, they all outlived the tyres.

Have never bothered to have it repaired. If I plug and it doesnít leak by the time I get home, it stays as is.

Donít think you really need to do a study in this, anything will work given a modicum of care. On my rubbish removal trailer I had a sidewall cut. It had 4 snot plugs in that sorted that until the wheels got stolen off the trailer. And everybody warns you not to use them in the sidewalls. Somewhere there is a Ford Courier runs on a trailer wheel that has 4 snot plugs in its side wall.

I did see a Courier on his side a while ago. Coincidence?

How big is the gun, e.g. is it easy to fit in/on the big and take along. I see it is also available without the gun. Have you tried fitting it "manually"?

My mushroom kit does not have the gun, but an allan key instead that you use to insert the plug. Nifty mechanism inside the screwhandle thing in which you turn the hex nut to push the mushroom through the tire.

Edit: So my kit packs up lekker small.

I use the brown worm plugs you get from Midas and garages as a temp fix. After fitment I make sure I don't exceed 110km/h and as soon as I am home I'll either replace the tyre if it's more than 50% worn or I'll get it patched with an inside proper patch we use on truck tires. The tire place in Brits does this for me at a good price. They are not rigged for bike tires so I need to take it off and refit which is ok.
I have done back in 2013 a fatal crash in Midrand on the highway where it was confirmed on the scene of the accident by his buddies that they have just plugged the tire at the Shell garage and tested for leaks...nothing. his accident was a mere 4 or 5 km on the Highway.
There are more info on a worm plug being a temp fix on a bike tyre.
Your choice.

on what type of bike doing what speed?
I cant see a worm coming out causing an accident, it has happened to me before. (The worm failing because I didnt use glue/lube, not the accident because of it)

Fortnine also used it with success from my understanding of the video.

What he said against it was if I remember correctly:
- expensive
- you lose all the air in the tyre
- least holding power

rema tip top sealastic tyre repair kit
https://www.gps4africa.co.za/tyre-care-products/789-rema-tip-top-tyre-repair-kit-tubeless-all-tubeless-motorcycles
works great

How do you insert these? I have/had a few but it seems like you are just going to push the whole thing inside the tyre.  Never tried though. Is there a trick to insert it only the correct depth?
