Yesterday we held a Tech Day for the Wisconsin BMW club. This one covered repairing tubeless tires if you get an object like a nail or screw in them.
We went over some of the tools you should carry with you to make the repair, and different ways to inflate the tire once the repair was made. We had 5 different styles of motorcycle tire repair kits available so that people could try them out and see which one worked best for them.
The seminar lasted about 2 hours and was a hands on session, where everyone had the opportunity to practice removing a nail or screw from a tire, and then patch it so they could get back on the road again. Once again we had a bike set up that people could test their skill and see if their patch held air. And, just like last year, it was unanimous that steel belted radial tires are evil and will definitely give you a work out when you’re repairing.
