Anyone ever used..........





I've been carrying around a bottle of the stuff for a year and a half. (Slime for Tubed Tyres)

I carry it in a tool tube fixed to a redundant exhaust bracket on my xt660

Never had to use the stuff.

I'm thinking of transferring it to the T7 but haven't got so many nice 'n handy options on the newer bike.

Just wondering whether it's worth the effort of fabricating a bracket.


I've read more positive reports than negative......Anyone here used it?

I haven't but I can only imagine trying to change a tire with all that slime in it.  It wouldn't be for me.  Others don't mind I guess.

Only in bicycles have I used something similar (usually called "tubeless milk", which describes it quite well). As far as I know, slime might have a higher viscosity.

Used said milk both for tubeless sealing in TL tyres (required on bicycles) and as puncture protection in inner tubes.

Worked quite well with inner tubes, as long as the damage is small enough. No chance with cuts - in this case, your rim will be messed up, removing that stuff on the trail is a real challenge (or even impossible).

Surely this will be the case with Slime as well.

It might cause trouble re-seating the tyre if this happens.


Surely, this can all not directly be transferred to motorcycle applications, but perhaps it's helpful.
