I think that motorcycling is hazardous enough already. I would'nt use Arrowmaxes, let alone 'the cheap fix'.

Then I'd park my bike, use that sealant on a wheelchair or possibly a wheelbarrow (this is Singleton after all), and drag my ass somewhere else. I really get the feeling this product was meant for gentle commercial use, and will do diddly squat on a sport radial squishing lean angles that a wheelbarrow jerks off to at night.

I've got a can of Motul Tyre Repair which I chuck in the backpack on longer rides, you only put it in when you've already got a puncture though.

Tyre mousse or inserts are only good to maybe 100km/h tops, and that stuff you've got a link to is more likely than not not even that good. The problem is that the product unbalances the wheel, so you can't go faster than speed X, usually 100km/h or less.

I bought it two or three years ago, but I don't think it would have cost much more than $20 or I probably wouldn't have bought it :)

Found it on youtube a couple of weeks back.

I think you have to buy the tyre like that tho and for cost? farked if i know but i reckon they wouldnt be cheap...
Yeah, this is about the same as the liquid ones, if its soft enough to be able to flow to fill in a puncture then its soft enough to flow to fuck up your tyre balance at hight speed.

Also, you'd expect structural damage to the tyre with that many punctures no matter whether it still holds air or not.

Sufficed to say the video didn't end with glory shots at a track day.

I guess the way to go is the Motul Tyre Repair, its cheaper than the goop short term but you never know you need it. lol :D

I've ridden on a mooso tube (the ones with heaps of balls in the rim) before. The thing is outright deadly.

I doubt they designed it for track days and that many punctures.

I have no idea how they work but i dont think it "flows" as such but more like soft enough the the air pressure in the tyre pushes it to a seal? Itd probably have some effect at speed but i dont think it would be much more than a slightly heavier tyre.
