Ride-On Tire Sealant/Balancer and TPM Failure


Mark Mayo

Recommended Posts

A friend has suggested I install Ride-On for the Three Flags ride this year. My dealer said that they have seen several tire pressure monitors that have failed when using Ride-On.

 

Please let me know your experience and advice.

Not my experience.

Have been using Ride-On and non factory TPM on my 05 BMW GS for a few years,no issues.

Sounds like typical Dealer BS,they just don't like to deal with the mess of tire sealing compounds.

Also,the sealing compound is forced by centrifugal action to the tire,not to the rim.

 

Ride-On is not particularly messy,have changed a few tires with Ride On and it washes out easily.

IMHO don't bother. I used it when it first came out. Two punctures, both just outside the sealant's coverage. Sealant protects about a 1" contact patch on the rear, less for the front. My dealer stopped offering it. IMHO.

I can't comment about the TPS, my R1100RT does not have such farkles. However, my tires hold pressure significantly better with the use of this product. No I am not affiliated in any way.

Just order a Nealey repair kit HERE

 

I have used them on motorcycle and car tires and they work great.

 

That's what I carry too,just in case.
