Rema Tip top. Fixed a 1/2" cut in a tyre with one of these much to my amazement. Comes with CO cannisters for inflation as well for just over £20

I’ve still got some spare kits I bought for a group buy a while ago 
I’ve had to use them on a couple of occasions with great success 

I always have one under the seat of the bike

My brother swears by that stuff - or at least something similar - I forget the name. but all his four bikes have it with tens of thousands of miles touring. Durham Police also put it in all of hteir cars and bikes.

If you ever see the stuff demonstrated at a show you'll be a convert.   I first saw it years ago at the Welsh bike show and both me and my mate had our bikes treated immediately,it really gives you peace of mind when riding.

Tyre fitters don't like it as it stays semi runny in the tyre but it does rinse away with water. I had it in all my bikes until I started doing trackdays and then I didn't want the hassle of rinsing if I needed new boots for some reason.

Because of this I got out of the habit totally until it occurred to me what could happen if I got a puncture during one of my forays into the wild and desolate wastes of Wales.

Now back to that comforting feeling of knowing that anything less than a major rip in the carcass will be handled without drama

No reason why you can't still carry one of those plug repair/inflation kits as well though for a belt and braces feeling

There are now many competitors out there,I had some green stuff many years ago ( Slime?) but that caused major tyre imbalance.

The original importers of this stuff used to tour round shows demonstrating it in use by taking the wheel out of one of their Triumphs and mounting it on a balancing type rig and inviting people to stab it repeatedly with a sharpened awl.
At the end of the day it was remounted in the bike and ridden home looking like a pin cushion with hundreds of little coloured dots where the sealant had worked

As I recall these two guys had a falling out and the technical one left and took his skills elsewhere and started making his own competing product,which is actually the version I use and it's produced in the UK

I'll see if I can find the details in case anyone is interested

Correction


Ultraseal was the original product bought over many years ago that I first fitted,what I have now is Puncturesafe
 

this is pretty much the same setup as the original demo



I'm a convert,it takes away that nagging 'what if..' thought in the back of your mind when out on a ride.

And it's made in Devon should you want to collect it at source

Even better demo

You'd have to be very unlucky to have this many punctures

Puncturesafe it is by the sounds of it, just waiting for some more info, PM'd you Ian.

Just ordered 2 bike's worth for £25 on ebay, cheaper than a decent repair kit.
Thing that swung it for me, apart from all the good reviews, is it will prevent a puncture.
Using a repair kit, you've got to survive a puncture first before you repair the tyre.
