Help with Tubless Tire Repair Kits

Is there a simple tire kit so that I can repair a blow out on my Vee? I have a center stand, but have never repaired a tubeless tire before. I keep going to places I really shouldn't with my Vee :mrgreen:.... and one of these, probably as far away from civilization as possible, I know I will end up with a flat. Was also wondering to repair a tubeless tire if one actually needs to pull it off the rim?

slime tire repair kit

i dont have one yet but its a mini electric air pump for motorbikes that comes with slime you add into the air valve , they also have tire plugs as well , its compact enough to fit in the under seat storage area , as for a full on tire blow out im not sure if its true or not , if you had tire irons and broke the bead you could stuff the tire full of road side dry grass or what ever too try too protect the wheel as you limp the bike back too help on the flat tire

I like the idea of the mini electric pump with slime. Never even heard of one with slime before, but if temporarily fixes a leak, then worth getting one.

I picked up one of these (or similar)...

http://www.canadiantire.ca/browse/pr...romSearch=true

(and it just happens to be on sale for 50% off :-D)

and it fits way in the back of the underseat storage compartment, just in front of the taillight. I then picked up one of those gooey-string plug kits and stuffed it back there too. I've used mine once so far and it worked fine. Actually saved me a bunch of hassle. Most bike shops, around here anyway, will refuse to repair bike tires. The plug worked fine until I could order in a replacement tire that fit and was what I wanted, instead of just taking what they had in stock or parking the bike. It also provided a little security when my wife and I rode from Ontario to BC.

Newfoundlander,

how the hell is sooo clean your bike?
You either don't ride it and keep it in your bedroom, or you wash it twice a day totally disassembling.

Nearly 10,000 miles in six months, actually.

I have one clean bike, and one dirty bike. The Strom is the clean-machine and the DRZ400 is my dirty girl.

Take out the tool kit, that comes with the bike, and you will find enough room behind it to store your compressor. My entire tire repair kit fits in the back and the tool kit fits in its normal spot. I have a speedo healer and an aux fuse box in my under-seat storage, and, with the tire repair kit, the original tool kit and some extra tools, there is still room for more junk.
