    Default Tubeless M/C tyres - where to repair

    Most of you guys probably already have places where you can get tubeless tyres inspected and repaired properly.

    I found it very difficult to find a Vulcaniser, Dealer or Tyre outlet that a......could speak good English, and b.......... check and repair leaking tubeless tyres on my M/C without fitting a tube.

    I finally found:- Linos Vulcanising, on Real Street, next to GUD Moto, North, on the same side of the road, up from J Bee.

    They did a very thorough inspection there, found the leaks and fixed the problem.

    Gave up, now I have the string plugs and the T inserter tool. Also have in the car a 12 volt air pump. Have used them a few times so far. Nails seems to be the biggest problem, but have pulled stuff out of the tire I didnt recognize. I had 1 plug start leaking only occasionally and was a bit of a problem to locate cause it didnt always leak. But it had been in the tire nearly 2 years now.

    There is a real problem with what you where asking and answered. A friend bought 4 new boon docker tires ( big mud grip ) and was having a flat on the front, he took it a few places including where he bought the tires, still had a flat on the front a couple times a week, not completely but just very low tire. He came over and we submerged the tire and seen the problem right away. The valve stem , the we are so accustom to the other countries we dont even think about it when getting new tires, comes with new valve stems. Problem fixed that should have never been. Just a reminder when you buy new tires you have to ask for new valve stems

    Tubeless tires are not yet common here, remember many things here are 50 years behind the times. I have showed quite a number of professional "vulcanizers" how to patch or plug a tubeless tire, all to no avail. As soon as you leave, they are laughing their ass off about the stupid foreigner's way of repairing a tire.

    I now run tubes. We are just much too often in places where one cannot find common sense. Best to stick with what the Roman's know when in Rome.

    Yep, its why I carry my 12 v air compressor and the plugs with me everywhere. Is easier to fix it than changing a tire. Then finding a valcanizer and waiting for an hour or going back to get your spare.

    Theres also a good one for tubeless tire repair. Its 60PHP per hole or damage that road when you turn right(the Y road) to Robinson from Hypermart. Your hint: Theres a lot of tires for sale brandnew and surplus tires.
    Live life to the fullest 'till your last breath! So there will be no "what if" or " I should have done that"....
