  • Do You Carry A Tire Repair Kit?

    Just wondering if this was something I should add to my saddle bags? I have spoke rims on my 09 RK Classic so I assume I need a Tube Repair Kit like this one from J & P.

    Yes I do, hope I never have to use it on mine but it may help someone else. Mine tubeless
    Those who say it can't be done should get in the way of those doing it.

      its always a good to carry one.. someone may need it you ride with.
      i have road side servive for these problems,and tire wheel warrenty.personally i wouldnt patch a tube
      the last tire that blew also took out the tube..it was replaced for free including pick up and delivery of the bike
      my tire/wheel warrenty is good for 7 years and isnt limited to one blow out..also if the wheel is damaged at the same time its also replaced free of charge..
      now your wondering cost well its $350.00 for 7 years thats $4.20 per month imo well worth it

        I carry one of the slime tire repair kits with the pump. I also have plugs and stuff packed in with it.

          I don't carry anything for tires but I really should. I also have plugs in the garage but no portable pump or compressed air cylinders!
          Better be prepared than sorry.

              Tubeless tire riders can carry a plug kit. It works in an emergency to get you home or a dealer/Indie for a repair or tire.

              Tube tire riders should carry a cell phone. Plain and simple. You;re not going to or be capable of dismounting and repairing a tire on a modern bike on the side of the road, unless you have a bunch of tools, friends and a shitload of motivation.....and some friends....and tools.......

                  And a lot of blocks of wood.

                  Sometimes them fix a flat in a can can get Ya to a repair station but Mine experiences with flats on a motorcicle is by the time Ya get stopped the tubes destroyed anyways unless it just goes flat while Ya be settin there.

                        Brings up a a slightly different question. When I went on the Ride to the Wall last month a guy had a battery operated air compressor that looked like a cordless drill. Apparently you can set the pressure that you want and just let 'er rip and it shuts off when the pressure is reached. Has anyone seen this and/or know where to get one?

                          It will get there, but it will take some time..... But for what I would be using it for.... when I am on the side of the road, if it gets it above 30psi would be enough to get you home or to a dealer for repairs.... But It will get to 42 as I used it to try and help a guy on the side of the road with a tube tire flat, but unfortunately the tire would not hold air.

                            I don't but probably should considering I had a rear tire blow out on me a couple years ago while riding. Maybe someday I will learn my lesson.
