Stop n Go tire repair kit
« on: July 30, 2017, 01:28:10 am »
I bought one of these 3 years ago, and actually forgot about it. Stuck it in a hardbag, and outa site, outa mind!  Last week I took a sheetrock screw through the back tire. (Why is it always a new tire that this happens to?)  I had a slow leak which the TPMS display showed. After getting to my destination, it took about 3hrs to fully deflate. Oh what to do? Then I remembered my repair kit! Hallaluya! After fiddling with the instructions, we got it figgered out! Once the pieces are together, it takes about 5 mins to do the repair and be back on the road! The tire has been plugged for a week and I've put on perhaps 500 miles with stints of 100 mph....no worries! ;)
  This kit cost about $60 on Amazon, but it is definitely worth the money! Comes with a compressor and built in pressure gauge! I highly recommend this kit to anyone!  :beerchug:

  Last week I took a sheetrock screw through the back tire. (Why is it always a new tire that this happens to?)

There is magnetic material mixed into the tread at the tire factory, and it is strongest in the outer parts of the tread.  As the tread wears down the magnetic field is gradually weakened, and screws and nails are no longer attracted to the tire. The more expensive tires,  naturally have more of this magnetic material in the tread. ;D

I bought one of these 3 years ago, and actually forgot about it. Stuck it in a hardbag, and outa site, outa mind!  Last week I took a sheetrock screw through the back tire. (Why is it always a new tire that this happens to?)  I had a slow leak which the TPMS display showed. After getting to my destination, it took about 3hrs to fully deflate. Oh what to do? Then I remembered my repair kit! Hallaluya! After fiddling with the instructions, we got it figgered out! Once the pieces are together, it takes about 5 mins to do the repair and be back on the road! The tire has been plugged for a week and I've put on perhaps 500 miles with stints of 100 mph....no worries! ;)
  This kit cost about $60 on Amazon, but it is definitely worth the money! Comes with a compressor and built in pressure gauge! I highly recommend this kit to anyone!  :beerchug:

It is a good tool and worked well for me for many years.
One small problem with those mushroom plugs.
Once the sealed bag is open, those plugs will go bad in less than a year.
I had one tire plugged for about 6k without any problems. :great:

Guys, I've been thinking about buying one of those...however, I wonder if you can use it in the auxiliary port charger. I had the cable changed (long story) to 10amp, and so is the fuse. Could I use it for the pump? Or does it need to be connected straight to the battery?
Best,

JD

JD, yes it works in the aux power hole. Also works with the pigtails for the battery charger
