    maybe by 1-2 psi. but a loss of tyre pressure will show up more readily.

        If any loss of pressure due to a puncture, you can always ride to the nearest town where tubeless punctures are done, or even keep charging the air every 50-70 kms to get to a location where u can get it fixed.

        I think that you should not bother with puncture kit at all. The nail buries itself in the tyre to puncture it. Since there is no tube inside to release air, air can escape only from the side of head of that nail. That opening is so small, it needs to be measured in microns. You can keep on driving and if required, fill up air enroute till you reach your destination for proper repairs.

        I personally have driven 600 km on a punctured tyre without even the slightest discomfort.

        Some users said that slime rusts off the inner rim, dont know the the truth can others confirm.
        Thanks jd, Itzli, trustvishwas and suhail for replying.

        Went to the autopart market @ JC Road here and got a puncture repair kit for just 100 bucks, just to be on the safer side. Never know which isolated part of India I get Nailed. Also I would be starting at night tomorrow and ride till dawn.

        @jd

        Didn't see your reply earlier, would have got a pressure guage too.

        For rear tyre - 130x70 - 17 you would need 6 or 7 ounces (actually 6, but for bad roads a little extra is recommended)
        For front tyre - 110x70 - 17 you would need 5 ounces.

        They would fill the tyres with Nitrogen once they fill Ride-on. Take the two year warranty card (for ) also.

        Here is the table, installation & usage information: http://www.ride-on.com/pdf/Motorcycle_Kit.pdf

        This has more benefits than just helping from punctures.
        Thanks HydBiker, spent many hours on the internet researching on silme and other tire sealants.

        Yes... Slime is not good for high speeds, also there are wheel balancing issues and also it leaves a huge mess if you have to get the tire repaired.

        Ride on does sound better than slime but would give sealants a skip.

          First of all, have a safe and enjoyable ride dude.

          One query though, the ninja comes with 55/60 halogens as stock bulbs. Is this enough to light up the road at night, considering how lousy some stretches of our highways are?
