I just got the DynaPlug Pro aluminium. All the different versions are a bit confusing. As a motorcyclist I think you want a 'pro' version, and whether you go plastic or whatever variations of metal they have shouldn't matter. AFAIK the cheaper variants don't have all the bits and the 'extreme' ones are more bulky and designed for thicker tyres such as trucks.
I've got one of these on order too:

And I guess I'll get hold of a tube and some tyre irons just incase I get a sidewall tear or something.

I have successfully used the motorcycle stopngo tyre puncture repair kit on my mates bike returning from holiday and it worked a treat. Fixed in 5 minutes and on our way before the local AA man from the service station we stopped at could get over to help us. Hardest part would be locating the puncture if there was no offending item/object sticking out from the tyre but in his case the screw was still in the tyre.

Took quite a few (about 5) to get my wifes AT rear tyre to around 20psi, but the crap adapter I was using leaked so I've no idea how much was lost.

Thanks all for your input (thumbs) .
I have so far ordered a cheap puncture kit £4 off ebay comes with the sticky string and and airman compressor. And will get a dynaplug ultralite and 5 co2 cannisters with a valve. Hopefully that should cover most normal punctures.

You could install anti-puncture fluid like Slime in your tyres too but if you have pressure sensors fitted get a compatable product.

Slime type products will probably ruin any TPMS sensor as they work by filling up holes with tiny bits of rubber until its plugged. Imagine it would do the same to the pressure sensor. I can't see any compatible products being available.

I wouldn't bother with the c02 canisters if you have a pump.more money to lay out,more stuff to carry and more faffing.

I dont know why folk dont just get one of those larger CO2 canisters like in drink dispensors and paint guns if they want to take that route.
