    Hi

    Can anyone recommend a tubeless puncture repair kit to keep on the bike?
    Foam can or screw in plugs type?

    Thanks

    I have this one under the seat. It's screw plugs, but I can not say much about that, I never have used one before.

    Plenty of kits on e Bay - all very much containing the same items. I would however recommend the Rocky Creek compressor if you have a pannier or bag  to take it  - compact and powerful - saves messing about with those CO2 cartridges ( three of those that are contained in the kits will only give you a limited "get you to a garage" tyre pressure of something like 14 psi  )

    With a plug kit and portable compressor you can be back on the road again in ten minutes with a repair that will see you through a tour (or longer)

    Crafty Plugger: Iíve used this many times to repair both mine and others punctures. Simple to use, no mess, plugged and away within 15 minutes,  provided you carry a compressor with you. I use an Airman 12v compressor.....small but powerful.

    I use a Gremlin kit, good value and seems to be quite sturdy unlike some of the FleaBay knockoffs.

    https://www.sportsbikeshop.co.uk/motorcycle_parts/content_prod/101778

    Used quite a few running a Tubliss system on my enduro bike, have had as many as 4 "dog turds" (technical term from the off-road community :008: :008:) in one rear tyre split which held for about 60 miles enough to get me back to the trailer.

    Always carry it ion the MTS when I'm out, thankfully not had to use it there yet!
