Stop & Go Tubeless Tire Plugger With CO2
One of those things you bring with you AFTER you've had the experience of a flat tire on a lonely highway.
You can ride for years without encountering a flat tire. But when it finally happens, this little kit is the difference between getting home, or being stranded on a lonely highway. Its simple to use, no messy glue-stuff, and did hold air-tight on the repair I did. It comes with 4 CO2 cartridges that will inflate the tire roughly 8psi each. When you use them, make sure you hold them in the foam-sleeve that comes with the kit. They get ICY cold.

It will probably get you home
It's easy to use and the tools in the kit are high quality. But, I didn't have excellent results. It held long enough to get home but the following morning the tire had lost 10 PSI. I pushed the plug into the tire and tried another and leaked also. Immediately. I have no problems normally using a tire that has been plugged but these definitely aren't trustworthy for anything but getting to the nearest repair shop. I conditionally recommend the kit because it's better than walking away from your bike.

Installs and works as described
I had a nail in the tread of my nearly-new rear tire, and the shops I called didn't want to plug it, they only wanted to replace it with a new tire (I asked why... they said "insurance reasons").
So I did some research, an tried this plug kit. The steps to install are pretty straightforward, but there are, oddly, 2 sets of instructions, and they aren't exactly the same, so it pays to read both first. It only took about 15 minutes to install (taking my time, doing it right). It's been a couple weeks, and ~250 miles, and the plug is working great.

Bought it, used it, like it. Simple and quick to use.

Did not work for me
I have only used this once and failed to stop the leak. The original hole was very small (small nail), so it's possible that I didn't accurately follow it's track with the reamer, but whatever the cause it leaked worse after the attempted plugging than with the nail in place.

Excellent solution for the typical nail-in-the-tire type puncture
Used the kit I keep on my 2013 FJR to fix a hole made by a nail.
Instructions included with the kit are easy to follow and I had the flat fixed in 10 minutes. The quality of the tools included are first rate and have a very solid and well made feel to them.
No pressure loss since applying fix so I'm happy to keep riding on the rear tire that picked up the nail until replacement time.
Highly recommended to keep on the bike. Note that I didn't use the CO2 canisters as my fix was done in my own garage so can't speak to how effective that part of this fix kit is.

Not much money for peace of mind
I haven't had to use it yet and I hopefully never will, but everything in the kit is high quality and the pouch itself is compact. I keep mine in my backpack since it was too thick to put under the seat, and the weight isn't really noticable.

Haven't had to use it - but it puts my mind at ease
Although I haven't had to use it yet - I can ride without the worry of being stuck on the side of the road with a flat. The kit is a great size. Can fit in my tank bag or thrown in my pannier.
