      Such a product was also available at the Yamaha Service Centre where I had workshop training. It was for use in tubeless tyres as far as I remember. A lot of guys (specially those with FZ16) took the product and were satisfied accd to the Store attendant there.

      This seems to be a different brand but I'm not sure.

        They call it the slime. There are many such products (even motul has one!)

        Most of these have a problem with lumping and thus causing tyre wobble.

        I use a patented formulation called as Ride - On TPS on the Ninja 650 and so far have been happy with it. It costed me some 1900rs IIRC, and gave me a lot of peace of mind. The solution has a patent that guarantees no lump formation and for full life wheel balancing as its USP...

            Yes Its available locally!
            Contact on Nine9Eight7Eight7Nine000 (Tejas Barot) he is the authorised dealer for this for Mumbai. A good friend and the father and son duo are bike enthusiasts too!

            Do search for some videos of this product on YouTube (Scary Stuff )

              Price depends on tyre size or its the standard one for a bottle/can and installation will be done at the dealer?

                There is alot of different sealents for tires, make sure you get the best one because of lumps they make inside the tires, due to tires getting hot when ridden They ranged from 3 dollars a bottle (150 rupees) to 30 dollars a bottle..

                    Anyone tried this on a superbike? Been thinking about it ever since I got a nail in the back of my Blade but worried about screwing with the balance.

                        If you are talking about the Ride-On, it seems (as claimed on the website) that in addition to acting as a sealant it also 'hydrodynamically' balances the tire. If is works as advertised then should in fact balance your Blade's tire. Sounds interesting.

                              I have got Ride-on TPS on my bike. While my previous tyres lasted about 17,000 kms without any punctures, the possibility was always at the back of the mind whenever I was out for a ride. When I change over to new tyres recently, I installed Ride-on TPS.

                              While I have not had any punctures till date, so cannot tell you if it seals the tyre or not as advertised, it does do its other part as advertised: dynamic balancing of the tyre.

                              And just for that alone, I think its worth it. Installation is pretty straight forwards and hassle free. Its a 5 minute job. Two thumbs up for the product.
