Once again my Stop n Go tire plugger kit has been put into use. I cannot recommend it enough. Easy to use, compact and effective. The repairs are supposed to be only temporary but the last one I did I kept in until the tyre wore out, about 2000 miles.

I'm sure most sets are similar but this is what I use

STOP 'n GO POCKET TYRE PLUGGER KIT FOR BMW BIKES | eBay

I also bought to compact Slim mini compressor but can't find one on fleabay at the moment.


Thought the one you linked was expensive but realise it includes the compressor so makes it better value.

my only issue with the kit is that I would like to know how well the compressor works.. it looks small enough to fit somewhere on the bike (hoping under the seat), but would like to hear from other people how well it works.

Is that the compressor you have?

1 option: As you know, the electric pumps pull too much power to be used in the accessory plug. Needs an optional fuse panel. Advantage is small size, but moves only a small amount of air. Could weaken/kill battery in winter. Just for your information, BMW makes a Mini foot pump. Nippy Normans sells one, too. Three-four minutes to pump up a tire,about the same. It's Larger.

Thanks Clem! Did not know really look into a foot pump before.. thought they would be too big ... the link for the OEM one does not have any size indicated, will try to find that, the other one does and it seems very doable!

more to think about now :)

My back tyre seems to be a nail magnet. One more puncture fixed. At the risk of being boring I cannot recommend this kit enough.

Any kits available to plug the tubed tubeless tires on the Classics?

P&G saved me once (nail); and one time I pulled a long canine(?) tooth out of a Harley-guys tire up around Mystic, CT on I-95 and used P&G. Excellent with a few large CO2 cartridges.

drDave, not sure about tubes. One of the main advantages of the stop n go plugs is it's all done without removing the wheel or tyre, something I guess you can't do with a tubed tyre. :001_unsure:

Touch wood - never had to use it, but I carry two (2) of the 'Keiti' brand sets under the seat - EVERYWHERE! Each contains 3 x CO2 canisters plus all the other bits, in a neat stout nylon pouch with Velcro closure.

I also carry a larger 'reamer' as I figure that could be a bit of a chore with the small one in the kit, plus a pair of pliers to remove the offending nail, screw, whatever - I doubt I could pull it out with bare fingers!

Hi all,
+1 for the Stop n Go. I bought the pistol style and my brother presented the opportunity to give it a try, on his car tyre.
SSSooooo easy to use, although the reamer gets a workout with the wire braiding in the tyre.
I purchased a small foot pump as I wasn`t happy to carry 5/6 small gas cylinders or load up the battery unnecessarily.
I am undecided on the foot pump.
Regards John
