I added Slime inner tube sealant and a 15 tooth sprocket and water tight cigarette lighter power port to the bike.

Didn't go far but the bike felt a bunch better than it did stock. Those gears are way to short.

Can't wait to do some more testing out on the highway..

I also purchased a micro start 12 volt air pump. Now I can air down the tires for off road and pump them back up for the pavement....

:grin2:

When you say Slime do you mean the brand-because I think if you check there is a speed of I think 65mph max when using it--reason is the components in it separate at higher speed-using a tire sealant in a tube tire is a good idea might not seal but if a flat happens the air is not going to rush out as fast giving you a good chance of stopping-next time try Ride On tire sealant no speed restrictions

Ride on for tubes?
And if it separates at high speed does that destroy the slime?
As in Tire Slime for motorcycles... it didn't say anything about speed limitations . It did say it might cause an inbalance at high speed.

Tube tires are a pain . And they still have no good way to seal the rim.

speed doesnt destroy the slime, its more of the fact that slime will de-balance your tire and at speeds above 65mph it becomes very noticeable

No- speed does not destroy it after it separates at speed that is why you get the imbalance slow down and it blends again- no problem with Ride On doing that and yes it can be used in tubes

Slime is liquid latex that will plug a hole until it gets disturbed. It will also eventually loose its water content and harden. My personal experience with slime is it will plug a small hole until the bike moves at which point the tire will again start to leak.
