Stop Go Tubeless Puncture Pilot
It Worked Once
So like many of the reviewers here I bought this hoping to never need it. I recently decided it would be a great idea to ride my 1190 adventure cross country for a business meeting. The first night on the road I woke to find a low tire. Not really low but low enough to warrant an visit to the air pump at my first opportunity. I assumed this was due to change in ambient air temperature and went on with life. The next morning I woke to find my front tire completely flat in the hotel parking lot. I quickly unpacked the compressor and plug kit. It's a nice kit that packs well enough into a small space and it seems to have everything one would need for a quick repair. After much inspection I found no hole to plug and decided to just try to put air back in my tire. This is where things get less than awesome. First off the compressor wouldn't turn on. I check all the wires and everything seems ok. I try again and this time it activates. It's REALLY slow. Think sixty seconds for every PSI added to a front 90/90/21 tire over 30PSI. I can live with that. It's small and that's a lot better than no compressor but your buddies will not be excited about waiting for you to put air into a larger tire rear tire. Still none of this is a deal breaker for me. It's small and it works. So the next day I again wake up to find a low tire. I turns out it's not easy to keep tubeless spoked wheels airtight. Out comes the compressor again. I even brag to my friends, "I'm prepared for this." It turns out I was not prepared. The compressor again refused to turn on. It's at this point I notice that I can make it activate if I shake it a little. It won't stay on but it does kick on for a moment. Upon further inspection I find that one of the wires going into the unit is really lose and seems to be the issue. It turns out the wire was never really attached just seemed jammed down in a rubber shrink fitting and left. So any use would pull it out. I didn't have tools or patients to fix it beside the road so <10psi had to get me to a station. Not the most fun I've had on a fully loaded up adventure bike as we were far from civilization. Revzilla was great with return and refund. I might even buy it again since I haven't found another kit that is quite so packable but I would urge everyone to TEST YOUR GEAR if you haven't. Being stuck with a air compressor that doesn't work can add a lot more frustration to an already annoying situation.

Bought "just in case"
Nice little kit, haven;t had to use it yet so I can't judge if it works or not. I also use Ride-on in my tires. I am use to the old fashioned tire plugs so using these will have a slight learning curve I am sure. But when and if I ever do need this, it will be there.

Quality kit in a nice pouch. Hope to never need it, but feel good knowing I've got the ability to repair a puncture roadside if required.

If you have saddle bags this compact tire fix system packs well and is easy to use. I didn't have to use it on my 5 day trip but was cheap insurance.

Had to use it the day it arrived!
As fate would have it, I picked up a screw in the rear tire of my GSA the day I received the Puncture Pilot. This is a pretty ingenious device but took a little practice. I trashed one plug on my first attempt. I had some difficulty setting the device between the knobs and you really have to crank down on the allen wrench to set the plug. As for the pump, it worked but had a tendency to unscrew the valve stem core. You'll find yourself overfilling slightly then quickly resetting the core. I highly recommend adding a valve stem tool to the case.

quick and easy
I bought this kit last summer hoping to never use it, but i know i would have to use it one day. that day was today. everything worked as designed. only thing i had to do was get some lube so the plug would slide easier through the metal hole in the tool. but after i did it worked great. love the tool, glad i keep it on my bike, just need to invest in some tire lube to keep with me.
