Dynaplug Pro Tubeless Tire Repair Kit

Few motorcycle breakdowns are as common or as irritating as a flat tire. Even if you’re packing a plug kit, too often the glue has hardened from disuse and you’re still dead in the water. The beauty of the Dynaplug Pro Tubeless Repair Kit is that it can plug a tubeless tire quickly and easily, and doesn’t require glue.

When the inevitable happens, unscrew the end of the polyethylene plastic case and remove the Dynaplug Pro aluminum tool. Now unscrew the tool’s large knurled end to access the items stored inside. If the tire is leaking air, remove the offending object with the pliers you carry in your tool kit and insert the pointed “air stopper” from the Dynaplug kit. The kit also includes a clearing attachment, three hollow, metal insertion tubes and eight repair plugs. No glue is required because the plugs are gummy and sticky.

To test the unit, I pounded a finishing nail into a tubeless motorcycle tire that was about to be replaced, then removed it with pliers. When the air rushed out I rammed home the air stopper tool, which did its job. Then I unscrewed the nose piece from the Dynaplug Pro tool, and placed a repair plug (which resembles a tiny rocket) over the projection at its small end. Screwing the nose piece on again held the plug in place. By reinstalling the heavy knurled rear section, the tool became a very handy unit that fit my palm nicely.

I moistened the tip (saliva is always handy) and tried pushing the repair plug straight in, but the finishing nail had not left a large enough hole. I unscrewed the nose piece and replaced the repair plug with the clearing attachment, an abrasive shaft that will enlarge the hole with a bit of prodding. With the hole cleared, I reattached the repair plug, shoved it in until it stopped then withdrew the tool, leaving the plug in place (its small metal tip drops inside the tire). The application of a bit more saliva to the plug showed a slight seepage of air; I installed another plug, and it held. Of course, you need a source of air to re-inflate the tire, which means packing CO2 cartridges or a pump (such as Dynaplug’s Mini Pro Inflator, $79.99).

The kit is intended for tubeless tires only, and if the first plug doesn’t fully stop the leak, Dynaplug states that a second or even a third may be utilized. It also states that the repair is permanent, but I would consider it an emergency, temporary situation and replace the plugged tire as soon as possible.

The Dynaplug Pro Tubeless Tire Repair Kit is packed in a polyethylene case just about 4 inches long and includes the Dynaplug Pro tool, three repair plugs, three insertion tubes, one air stopper, one clearing tool attachment and one pipe cleaner. Packed in a separate small bag are five additional tire repair plugs that can be placed in the reusable insertion tubes. The whole kit is very compact and can fit easily into a jacket or tank bag pocket.

The Dynaplug Pro Tubeless Tire Repair Kit works well, is made in the USA, and while its $59.99 price tag may seem steep, think of what you would pay to get going again while standing beside the road with a flat. Consider it a good investment.

    I like the air stopper tool in the kit. A very good idea to prevent total air loss while you’re plugging it up. Does seem like such a small even hole should not require more than one plug, but hey, it is an emergency use only device.
    The no glue plugs makes a lot of sense. A recent check in my bikes old kit bag revealed a dried tube of tire plug glue that. if it were to be dated, would require carbon dating process.

    I bought one of the older version kits about a year ago. When I tried to insert the plug into the tool, I found it almost impossible to insert it into the metal insertion tube. It appeared the plug was too big to slide into the insertion tube. I wasted 2 or 3 plugs which are quite fragile with the metal point coming off very easily. I wasn’t impressed

    I got one of these for Xmas and the quality is unbelievable from a machining standpoint. I work on machining parts and I understand what it takes to produce these types of tools. I suggest carrying one of these tools with a Leatherman and you’re good to go. Perfect for my 100 anniversary softail deuce that has no bags. I just tuck the tools in my jacket.
