Did a 9680 mile ride last sumer. Dyna plugs do not work. Sticky rope worked for 4000 miles.

I did a trip last summer. Took along the dyna plug kit and the rope style kit. Had three flats. Tried using the dyna plug kit on the first flat. Could only get maybe 20mi. then flat agin. Tried another plug same thing. Switched to rope style kit. No problems. Put 4700mi on the rope plugs.

UPDATE

Used Dynaplug for a rear tire leak PR2 with 3k miles on it. (Found a #8 or a #10 self taping screw in the tire).

I had to use 2 plugs to close the leak, while my better half held the flashlight. Slime pump worked great (thanks Fred) and so far (100+ miles the plugs have not lost one psi)

Ordered a new tire as most riding is 2 up with wife and (happy wife = happy life) . Also as she was on the back at 80+ when the TPS red light lit up from the screw, we talked (I listened) and we decided to be safe get a new rear tire.

PR3 is on the way.
