Thanx Cliff/MOB.
I ordered the Slime pump and will hopefully get the tools/plugs in it's package like Cliff did.
Will also get what MOB suggested for the other tools/items I carry {as I need to do something about my mess/Tupperware box}.

Ride safe, Ted

I received the Slime pump/tire repair kit and added it to the bike.
But I opted a small insulated/cloth ice box to put everything in.
Works good, doesn't bounce around, and if I need an icebox, it's now available.

Ride safe, Ted

I thought I had posted this up, but I did a bit of research whilst searching for an electric pump, and came across these on the ADVRider forum:



https://www.motopumps.com/

Bought one for meself, and just got one for a buddy who rides as a bday gift after testing mine.

There's a few details on this one that, to me, make it worth the premium over the Slime model.  The motopump is twice as much, but carries a 5 year warranty, better hardware (brass screw-on valve stem connector, LED light, stowable hose, and integrated BACKLIT pressure gauge) all of which compelled me to spend a bit more on the MP.

If you follow the thread, there's a discount for ADVrider forum members, and Rob (owner) is very good about quick shipping and responses.

There are multiple kit offerings, and two pump sizes to meet your needs - but the included accessories also make these pumps a better value. IMHO.  Also comes with a nice zippered neoprene storage bag for the pump and accessories.

With more guys gearing up for the National, I thought this would be a good thread to resurrect as people start planning for long voyages.

I have used this pump several times, and it makes topping off tires very easy.  I personally use my SAE electric gear ports to plug in the compressor, and it works very well.

I highly recommend.

These work great and are definitely worth carrying with you along with a small pump,they saved me from a big headache on a recent trip when I got a nice shiny 1" deck screw in my new rear tire in the north woods.the plug I used is still in there 8000 miles later which I don't recommend doing but trying to make it to my next tire change.ive used them numerous times with zero leakage for way too many miles.

I tried using a buddies Stop-n-Go plug kit (actually my buddy did), but we had no success with the mushroom plug holding tire's air. It worked fine for him on his bike several thousand miles ago. I believe we actually made the hole in mine worse/bigger using this tool. I hear from some that Dyna Plug is preferred, but that may be a matter of opinion. Dunno. For now, I have a new tire on order because I couldn't salvage my current one.

I can't discern if the prior post was in praise of the "s&G" plugs, or the pump thing.. all I can say it the PUMP, is the bomb, and recommend it, along with many others.. as for the S&G plug system.. well.. i ain't going there again,

Stop n go, mushroom plugs, dyna plugs, meh.  I have always used gummy worms with plenty of glue and a slime pump.  Never failed me, never any issues, repaired over a dozen tires over the years.  Now tell me why I need to try something different!
