As tested in Rider Magazine! They put 9 holes in their tires ..... and kept on riding!
“At first I was skeptical about the product, however, it saves money and time, and keeps our riders upright and on the road. We go through tires like they’re water, so we are always on the look-out for products that maximize our tires’ efficiency. A quality, well maintained motorcycle is the most important thing EagleRider provides its customers. In 2010, EagleRider customers rode almost 28 million miles on their bikes. Incorporating the Ride-On TPS Motorcycle Formula high-speed tire balancer and sealant helps EagleRider mechanics become more efficient when working on bikes while also providing the customer with a better performing motorcycle. The sealant improves the bike’s fuel efficiency, extends tire life, mutes road vibrations, and seals punctures in the tire’s crown area.” Steve Sergi, Director National Corporate Service - EagleRider
Not Another Tire Sealant...
Yeah, we know, tire sealants suck! Sealing punctures is not difficult. Doing so without rusting the wheels, throwing them out of balance, or creating a disgusting mess - that’s the trick.
While our competitors were busy playing with bicycles, we were busy earning our stripes in the world’s most demanding applications. From commercial fleets to military and police applications, Ride-On has built its reputation providing the world’s most advanced tire sealing and balancing solutions. Finally, there is a tire sealant specifically formulated for high-speed motorcycle applications.
While you ride, a protective layer of Ride-On TPS - a tire balancer and sealant containing fibers six times stronger than steel evenly coats the inner surface of your tires. This coating balances your tires and makes them into self sealing tires for LIFE!
Balance - With one installation of Ride-On, lead weights become a thing of the past. While Ride-On works in conjunction with traditional weights, you won’t need them anymore. Ride-On is specially formulated to hydrodynamically balance high-speed tires and dampen road noise and vibrations that cause a rough ride. The great thing is Ride-On will continue to adjust and literally rebalance your tires as you ride for the legal life of the tires. So go ahead, pop off those wheel weights, shine your wheels, and enjoy the smoothest ride you have ever experienced on your bike. Ride-On is TPMS friendly, however it is not recommended for use in 2009, 2010, and 2012 Honda Gold Wings as their TPMS Sensors are not hermetically sealed. Read More>
Safety First - With Ride-On TPS tire sealant, your tire literally fixes itself! If your tire is punctured, the centrifugal force of the rotating tire and the internal air pressure force Ride-On into the hole, sealing it virtually instantly. Since it helps eliminate porosity leaks that cause tires to deflate over time, your tires stay properly inflated, last longer, your bike handles better and gets more miles per gallon.
Works in Tubes and Tubeless Tires - Ride-On TPS will eliminate 85-95% of your flats in tubeless tires from objects up to 1/4" (1/8” for tube tires) that penetrate the contact area of your tire. Due to a tire’s inner curvature, Ride-On will not seal sidewall damage, or damage near the shoulder of the tire (the outside 1-1.5” of the tire tread). If a tire has a cut, impact break, bruise, bulge, snag, or sidewall damage, take the tire out of service and have it inspected by a professional tire care specialist.
Motocycle Repair Kits vs ReplacementOur company takes the position that any repair kit in a motorcycle tire should be treated as a temporary motocycle repair. We recommend that as soon as possible after finding an object in your tire, you have the tire inspected by a professional. If the recommendation is for fixing the puncture or replacing the tire, then you should do so. Ride-On will not interfere with the application of conventional tire plug and patch repairs, and can easily be washed out of tires with water.What Should You Do if You Find a Nail or a Screw in Your Tire?If an object has punctured your tire tread within the Ride-On covered area, check to make sure that the tire pressure is within manufacturer specifications. Cautiously, drive your motorcycle for 3-5 miles to warm up the tires. Remove the puncturing object and, while taking extreme caution, drive your motorcycle another 3-5 miles. Be sure to check the air pressure to make sure that you are not running the tire flat. If necessary, re-air the tire and continue riding your motorcycle for 2-3 miles. This will allow the Ride-On to work its way into hole and seal the puncture (DO NOT SPIN TIRE ON A STAND).
Although Ride-On is effective from -40°F to 250°F, it works best once tires have warmed up. For maximum safety, have a tire professional inspect (and if necessary, repair or replace) your tire as soon as possible after a puncture. Ride-On will not interfere with the application of conventional tire plug and patch repairs, and can easily be washed out of tires with water.
You may be wondering why you need to remove puncturing objects from your tire tread given that Ride-On forms an effective seal around such objects. The reason is that if an object is left in the tire, it will shift as the tire rotates, eventually creating a larger hole and causing further damage to the tire or tube. Please note that if an object has been in the tire for a long time, it may take some time for the puncture cavity to close (this is because rubber has “memory,” which causes it to conform to the shape of the puncturing object). In this case, the tire may temporarily lose some air until it is sealed. Note: if the puncturing object is a screw, you must unscrew it - yanking or pulling the screw will tear the rubber and possibly the steel belts.
Inspect your tires regularly for perforating objects or other damage. Look for and remove any stones, bits of glass, metal, or other foreign objects wedged in the tread as they can work their way deeper into the tire and eventually cause a puncture. Also check your tires closely for signs of uneven wear patterns. Uneven wear may be caused by improper inflation, misalignment, tire imbalance, or damaged suspension parts. If the cause of the uneven wear is not corrected, further tire damage will occur. Certain uneven wear patterns may also indicate that the tire has suffered internal or structural damage; such damage requires immediate attention from a professional tire care specialist.
Ride-On is a Green biodegradable product that is designed to be non-hazardous and non-flammable, and contains corrosion inhibitors that protect all alloys of steel, aluminum, magnesium, and yellow metals against oxidation. Ride-On is Tire Pressure Monitor (TPMS) friendly, however we DO NOT Recommend its use in 2009, 2010, and 2012 Honda Gold Wings as their TPMS sensors are NOT hermetically sealed (Read More). Although some of our competitors’ products have been documented to cause corrosion, Ride-On enjoys a reputation for being completely compatible with all types of wheels and tires. Ride-On is currently sold by some of the nation’s largest commercial tire dealers who install product into tens of thousands of fleet tires. These commercial customers demand that our products not damage their aluminum, steel wheels, or tires. As their tires can last upwards of 250,000 miles, it is essential that Ride-On not harm tire ply materials or cause loss of adhesion strength. Letters from manufacturers such as Michelin, Goodyear, Bridgestone/Firestone, Continental, Yokohama, and Toyo indicate that the use of our products do not automatically void their warranties. More than 5 billion miles and several hundred thousand commercial and motorcycle applications attest to our success.
