Saw this online www.dynaplug.com    Looks like a good product.  Anybody have any experience with one? Looks like a good thing to carry in saddlebag.

I do not; but you can do the same with a $11.00 tire plugging kit (Slime) from Walmart.

I see it differently. I think basic strip plug kits are fine, but they are messy and a bit bulky to store in the bike, it is what I currently have.

This kit seems to be much simpler and about the size of a small flashlight. For $10 to $20 bucks more than a basic kit you get a small self storing easy to use kit. I like it. Amazon.com has them for $26.99 shipped with prime.

To plug a tire right; you need a reamer to clean the hole and a good grip on the tire plugging tool; because it can literally be a bitch to force the plug into the hole. You need a a T-Handle which imparts better force and control...

This is what you need; and it easily stashes away on the bike. And it's $8.00 to $9.00 dollars...

I bought a Dynaplug kit. I haven't had the opportunity to use it yet. I feel that any plug is used to get me to a tire replacement. I got it before my road trip last year. I used to carry one of those rubber mushroom head plug kits, but they seem awkward to me and just not easy to use. Whereas the dynaplug has a metal pointed tip that appears easy to penetrate the tire. Just load the plug in the handle, push it all the way in the tire and pull the handle back out, air tire up, done. The kit comes with everything needed. I like riding back roads, but wouldn't want to be stranded for any longer than needed. There are a lot of crazies out there.

Agree.

The other thing that bothers me about this Dynaplug's are the plugs themselves. What it you have a hole that is not adequately sealed by the diameter of their plugs? The Slime tire plug kits in essence double the thickness of the plug material; since they are folded in half for a tighter fit.

As a matter of fact I used two plugs together once on my past Toyota Tacoma for a very large puncture; which btw heal until the tread of the tire wore down enough to eventually replace the tire.

Their is another one available that is similar to dyna guard but cheaper and available at AutoZone or Walmart for about $9. I'd try it. I think it will work just as well. If I had it to do over that's what I'd get.

Been using the Dynaplug for years. I've repaired a lot of tires over the years and for me this is the easiest, cleanest, and most efficient tire repair kit available. The only issue I've had with it is the size of the plug is small enough that for a large hole it may require more than 1 plug. At one time I ran out of plugs and called the company (one person operation) only to find they had gone out of production and I was asked if I wanted to buy the rights to the product. Apparently someone took them up on the offer and I'm glad that they did. I bought 3 new kits with extra plugs to have one for each car and the bike.

why not stop by a tire store or auto store and see what they can tell you. After all they have seen a lot and might know something

remember you're lying on the ground in dirt trying to plug your tire. Do you want to screw around with a cheap plug kit or a good one.

I used one on a friends rear tire on a trip to the Dragon, it was only intended as a temporary fix until we got home but it worked so well he ran it until the tire wore out in my experience they work well.

I picked up a nail on my Vegas and used my dynaplug kit to repair it. It was really easy and the kit was great. I've been running it for some time now and probably will just run it until I need to replace the tire. Highly recommend.

I have used the Dynaplug and it worked well. The first plug I still had some leakage so I inserted a second. I did not leak after that. Held air perfectly until my wife found out I was riding a plugged tire. She said we can afford a new tire... I want you on a new tire. So, I bought a Michelin Commander. But the Dynaplug was easy and not messy at all.

Dynaplug, interestingly, says its plugs are a permanent fix, as certified by an independent testing outfit called UTAC. UTAC did the testing on a car tire, and refines that the plug is a permanent fix for holes up to the size of a 16-penny nail about ⅛-inch or 3mm at speeds up to 90 mph.

I used one to fix a buddies rear tire during a trip to the Dragon we figured it would hold until we got home, it worked so well that he never did replace the tire and it was in there until he wore out the tire.
