RL had a thread about Safety Seal brand plug kits. Have not used on the bike, but did use it on other tires (ATV) and it was very simple and it works.

I carry the Rocky Creek compressor and Stop & Go Pocket Tire Plugger kit all the time. You need to add a pair of needle nose pliers to the kit for removing nail/screws, etc from tires.

I've carried the Stop & Go kit for years. I've used it three separate times and never had a problem getting a good seal on the leak.

I carry a Stop and Go kit another kit with the tar cords and a 3rd one Dynaplug which is basically small diameter tar cords for small holes. I've used all 3 with success but have seen the Stop and Go mushroom plugs pop inside the tire twice on my brother's tire. The basic tar cords worked for him that time.

I think you'll find that they all work.
Their success is dependent upon your technique.
Whichever one you choose, I suggest practicing on an old tire a few times.
You don't want to practice while on the road...lost...loaded with gear...at night...in the rain...with dead batteries in your flashlight. ;-)

Motorcycling is not, of itself, inherently dangerous.
It is however, extremely unforgiving of inattention, ignorance, incompetence or stupidity.

My experience, after numerous tubeless motorcycle tire flats, is different. Safety Seal remains head and shoulders better than the cheap alternative plugs. Slow leak after slow leak became a thing of the past after the switch to the quality American product.

Something about the Ozarks. Countless nails and screws on the gravel roads.

Seems I read or heard that SafetySeal actual vulcanizes or bonds? They seam to have a good rep on heavy duty off road vehicles and equipment. I phoned them and told them I primarily wanted motorcycle repair. They put together a kit with several sizes. Nice folks to work with.
