Puncture kit
« on: April 20, 2019, 04:58:53 PM »
Can people recommend a puncture kit they have used succesfully - need a new one for my European tour - think the one i have is too old now - needs to be compact but functional if you know what i mean  Ta !

I actually carry two types, having used both neither one works in all cases but between the two, I am confident that I can plug any hole and ride on.  I also carry a small compressor.

Unfortunately I had the need to tackle a screw that had found its way into my rear tyre a couple of days ago. I initially re-inflated the tyre in an attempt to limp the 60 miles home but it lost its pressure within 15 miles. Fortunately I have carried the sticky string repair kit with me for years but never had the need to use. After a quick roadside repair I continued my journey home without losing any pressure at all. Worked a treat.

There are two kinds of people, those saying the glass is half full and those saying the glass is half empty. But the world really belongs to the ones that say “That’s not my glass! My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!”             Terry Pratchett  R.I.P.

You might also consider adding this:

Does not interfere with functioning of the TPMS.

Have you a separately fused supply direct off the battery to run that, I think the front power socket is electronically fused at 5A which may be just on the edge for that pump?
