Anybody use it? Good or bad reviews?
I have no good reviews. Every time It has been put in my tires were not balanced. I had it removed had dealer put on weights and perfect balance.Anybody use it? Good or bad reviews?
"Alternative tire" - I like that phrase. I take it you had difficulty finding a ride-flat tire that was made specifically for a motorcycle (hint hint).ride-on does work as advertised. Advantages is it will seal some decent sized punctures. It will act as a dynamic tire balancer.
Disadvantages. Some tire places will not work on a tire that has that stuff in the tire. Can make a mess when changing a tire. Cannot easily patch a tire if necessary (real bear to get the surface totally clean for the patch). Takes a while of driving down the road before the slime rotates completely around the tire for a balancing effect, more so when cold. Cannot use dynabeads (which you sort of don't need if using the ride-on). False sense of security. Can get blow-out of the valve stem of the sealant when checking air pressure (just a bit of an unexpected mess, nothing serious). Have to clean the rim out when changing tires, another unnecessary pain.
If you're really concerned about unplanned air loss, get a tpms and use an alternative tire. Carry an air compressor and plugs in your onboard tool kit, and if really concerned a can of fix-a-flat. Note, some garages again won't work on a tire that has used fix-a-flat for the same reasons as above.
I don't use ride-on, and haven't felt the need to. I do use a tpms and have an alternative tire though, and the tool kit items (without the fix-a-flat).
