Customer Product Reviews
I feel protected
I now feel protected when riding out in my own knowing that I have at least a basic level of protection against a tyre deflation whilst out riding. Have seen other riders with two punctures whilst out riding in the past 3 months, I felt I needed to take some precautions.
Peace of Mind.
Ive been using this product for most of the year now in different bikes and its presented no problems. Its very easy to install. Fortunately I've not had any punctures so I cant comment on its effectiveness, but what it had done is to allow me to cover many thousands of miles, touring Scotland and Europe, with relative peace of mind.
Slime saves the day
Well I got a puncture on my ktm 390's rear tyre, only 2000 miles in, so was either looking at replacing and fitting costs, somewhere in the region of £150 or maybe trying this product and getting some more mileage out of that tyre. So £8 for the slime and £3 postage (I have to say that if sportsbikeshohp has it stock, my god they are quick, very impressive. I hope there is some industry award for delivery's because you guys deserve it) it arrives and I follow the instructions (on the label for any one dim enough not to see it) and see that the product is good for 2000 miles...touch, that's more wear on that near new tyre. Any way it's been in for over 2 weeks now and has never lost more than 2 psi even after very hard riding, that is the one thing I would say, please continue to check psi and tyre condition as many times as you can just for peace of mind. Great product, great price, great stockists, good job all round!!!!!
Easy to use, does what it says
Excellent product. Having recently fitted Road Pilot 4s to my Bike I was losing pressure at the front. Slime was easy to insert and my tyres not only maintain pressure but are now protected from punctures. No drop in pressure over the past week at all.
Great for tyres that leak air at the rim
Kept coming back to the bike with a flat rear tire. Checked it all over and no sign of nails or puncture. Read online that certain wheels over time lose their seal causing a tyre to go flat after a few hours. Heard Slime would sort it.. tried it and problem solved... Back of the net!!!!
Good but a few things to note
Used this before and had no problems. If you change your own tyres be aware it makes the removal process very messy. It can also spit out a bit when checking tyre pressures. Tyres need to be checked regularly for nails etc as you may not know the tyre has a puncture and Slime is not a permanent repair.
Who ya gonna call
It's just like the gooey stuff in Ghostbusters! Slime is great and saves so much hassle! It's much quicker to install than the time you'd spend on the roadside fixing a puncture or waiting for help and a bit of planning makes it even easier. Make sure you put the tyre valve in a position where you can reach it without bending the plastic tube they supply and you'll save loads of frustration! It's cheap too! Recommended!
Slime to the rescue
I recently bought this product because I was having trouble with my front tyre on my Bonneville losing pressure slowly. Alloy wheels. Thought of this, installed it (easy to do) and lo and behold problem gone away. Great. I also have the extra reassurance that I won't get an explosive decompression of my front tyre any time soon, even better.
What brilliant stuff. I had a nail in tyre of my scooter, you would normally have to take exhaust and all the brackets off to get the wheel off. Just remove nail and valve squeeze in 237ml of slime put valve back in and spin wheel then inflate, it's that easy. Also it will repair any future punctures.
Works well but
It's very simple to use. Was able to fix puncture in less than 5 minutes. Holds the pressure too but I have very strange feeling of something being wrong when riding. Most likely due to wheel being out of balance. It is a must have item going for longer rides and touring. Highly recommended.
