Figured I'd add these while having the S22's installed.

Received my second puncture repair kit. First one was too big. This one fit perfect!





I keep meaning to buy this. Ive got a sealant in the tyres thats supposed to seal any holes up to 15mm in diameter and act as a preventative measure against punctures, but want to get this as a backup if it doesnt do what its supposed to. Looking at the picture, theres 1 question. Where youve got it is where I keep my disc lock. With that kit under the seat, could you still fit the disc lock on top of it?

Last time when I had the bigger set I was trying multiple options to make it fit. One was playing around with the tool kit. So you can remove some stuff from the stop & go and add it to the tool kit.

Youll be able to have your disk lock.

Full disclosure, I just asked the shop if they had them, and that I wanted them installed, so I don't know what size they are.  I remember seeing them on the shelf when I was previously in there.  Heck I don't even remember what brand they are. I was supposed to get a email receipt from them, but I'm going to scrub them in at lunch and ride up there and get a paper receipt.  I'll ask what brand, and size they installed.

I usually get the elbow valves first tyre change so much easier than trying get on rubber valve.Something else that should  just come as standard .
Rob I have a Tip Top puncture kit  wrapped inside my hi viz vest  and still have room for disc lock with standard rear seat.Although with seal cowl  it is a bit tighter fit.
Better to arrive 10 minutes late in this world than to arrive years too early in the next.

Nice, screen shot'd it for a soon purchase.  :028:
I currently have a Nelson Rigg PK30 backpack in that spot but this is more of a need, not a whole lotta stash space left after the undersides got something there (besides my paperwork). Maybe wedge the backpack somewhere in near the toolkit, only need a hands width for it.
My '02 ZRX has been gutted of the air box and switched to pods for years now, Under seat storage kit installed I carry a small MVP air compressor w/ battery connect leads, tire ream/ plug tools, string plugs, 6' jumper cables and Wife can get a thinner sweatshirt in there still. The tail section has a smaller area too.
It weighs just over 500# also  :001:

RobZ900, well I totally forgot to ask what 90 degree valve stems they installed, luckily the receipt had the part number.  They're Competition Werkes 11.3mm, #624-1104BK (black).

Ooh, I quite like that. What brand, how much power do they draw and how much?
