Ride-On Technical Service Bulletins
Warning About Damaged and Sup Par Chrome Wheels
Our Ride-On products are totally compatible with Chrome wheels. Ride-On does not harm quality chrome plated wheels in any way.
However, if you have poor quality chrome plating or damaged (scratches and chipped) wheels where the metal substrate of the wheel (aluminum) is exposed, any moisture in your tire including our sealant can start the process of galvanic corrosion. In this type of electrolysis induced corrosion your wheel will act as a sacrificial anode and corrode while protecting your chrome plating.
If you have good quality chrome plating and wheels that have not been damaged due to careless tire dismounting, you may use our Ride-On sealant with great results. However, we would not recommend that you use our sealants if you are unsure of your wheels and you have any visible damage or flaws in your chrome plating.
Ride-On and Tire Pressure Monitor Systems (TPMS)
Is Ride-On safe to use in combination with TPMS sensors? The answer is yes, provided that they are hermetically sealed. We do not recommend the use with at least the following makes: Honda Gold Wings from 2009, 2010, and 2012 and newer, as well as KTM 1190 and 1290 Adventures.
If the sensors are not sealed, we do not recommend the use of Ride-On.

There are several variables that can impact our tube sealants’ efficiency (thickness of tubes, speed of operation, puncturing object size, location of injury, ambient temperature, tire’s starting pressure, etc.).
