    Default Slime

    Hi guys,

    Sliming really helps to stop loss of air when you are on road and there is a puncture. Has anyone tried this?

    Sliming is known to be effective. But not 100% fool-proof !

Don't know about the OP, but I had two punctures in my FZ's rear tyres about 3 months back (2 huge nails struck in the tyre), its got no leakage so far - its as good as it was before the puncture.
    So what if the air escapes? You use Tool1 to clean the puncture, not to hold the air. You need to move Tool1 up and down the puncture repeatedly for the puncture to be cleaned and for Tool2 to slide in more smoothly.

    After the plug is inserted, rotate Tool2 in anticlockwise direction 1/4 rotations so the plug slides out of the slit and the Tool can be removed. I don't understand how simply pulling out Tool2 would help, although it may work in a crude way. This is how I have been fixing punctures for the last 4 years and my puncture has lasted the life of the tire.

    I bought the Sarv puncture kit which is the most widely used and is very good in quality. Cost me a bomb since I bought it at a tire shop.

    Contact the manufacturer (Sarweshwari Engineers) and the cost is around 200 bucks only.

    My suggestion is to buy it directly from the manufacturer as any dealer or retailer will charge a premium. I was charged more than double the price that was quoted by the manufacturer.

    Buddy I bought the kit from them and it costed Rs300/-. The place is quite near to my house so if any delhi xbhpians want, I can get them the kit @ the dhaba.

    What is the lifetime of the rubber strips? I've bought a kit a couple of months back, and since then I've not had any punctures. How long before I'll need to replace them? I do not want to be caught with an expired piece of mending rubber on a desolate highway!!
