flh120 wants to know Dino or Syn?
Finally had to use my Dynaplug. Updated

About 4 years or so ago I got a flat out in BFE and had to drive 20+ miles to get within cell phone range. Next was the hour and a half wait for the truck. Because I put in so many miles on lonely back roads I decided to buy a tire repair kit. I was drawn to the dynaplug ( http://www.dynaplug.com/ ) because of its tiny size. The entire kit, not counting co2 cartridges, is about the size of a co2 cartridge. I always meant to try it out on an old tire before pulling it but of course I never got around to it. So yesterday I got a flat about 30 miles from home. Time to figure out this dynaplug. It actually did a pretty fair job. It took two plugs to get a good seal but after about 15 minutes it was ridable again. Just checked the tire pressure and it did loose about 2 pounds overnight but hey, I made it home.

That little metal tip on the end of the plug cord would certainly make it easier to install. I just have a TireSlime plug kit, I've used it many times on car tires and had good success as long as I ream the hole good enough.

Something similar to this but it came in a little plastic box that I added a cheapo visegrip and razor blade. https://shop.slime.com/products/delu...nt=47566683656

If I had the room in my tool bag I would probably gone with a more traditional fiber or rubber plug kit. When I had my service station years ago I used them all the time with great success. My main reason for choosing the dynaplug was because it would fit so easily into my tool bag. I attached a photo to show the small size of the kit.

My only concern is that the plugs seem very small, they may not seal up that sheetrock screw hole. But then again, I have a touring bike with all three storage spaces, plus two more in the front lowers, so I have plenty of room for something bigger. If I was trying to put something in my Buell, I would need to go with the Dynaplugs system, no real room under the seat.

I kept a standard automotive plug kit,,, reamer installer, and plugs in my lower pouch on the down tubes.. plus other parts and supplies,,, the fork bag has all the tools necessary to do all but a major repair..
using a standard size plug insures it will seal...

If you watch their demo they actually seal up holes made with 20 penny nails. for me the reason for carrying it is size. It's not necessarily the best tool but it's small enough that I had it with me and I made it home. It's not perfectly sealed as I am loosing about 2lbs a day. To be fair though, if I had gotten some practice with the Dynaplug first (which I really meant to do) I might have done a better job. After two days it still has enough air to ride on and I did make it home which is always a good first step.

After I got the wheel pulled I I drove in a couple of nails and did some practice tries with my dynaplug. I never could get it to completely seal even under garage conditions. However, it is fast and easy to use. Also even though I still had some very slow leakage I could still easily have ridden 100+ miles before having to add air. So my final call on this tool is that it might not actually "fix" your tire but it'll definitely get you home. Of course your results may differ from mine.
