All I got is, pinch or lightly twist the tube in the bad area with a needle nose pliers. Add pepper, egg white, or stop leak or all. flush system when repaired properly.

How big? Might just be able to clean up the immediate area and JB weld it.

Wouldn't this thread be more appropriately titled "Your favorite MacGruber moments?"

I got pulled over for a cracked tail light once. The cop told me that it was "showing white" and that was unacceptable. I reached down and grabbed an old potato chip bag off the side of the road and tucked it into the hole. Fixed! The cop then told me that it "looks like $hit". I asked him if that was illegal too. He just told me to go home.

Mylar potato chip bags can be very handy to have. I even used one (and a couple zip ties) as a temporary power steering cap on my beater F150 farm truck. They deal with heat quite well IME.

If you hald them up to the sun, they make a You can see the edges perfectly and while I'm not certain they make great UV filter, they do make a fantastic light filter. In "light" of this, I have used a Lay's bag taped to the inside of a pair of sunglasses(supposedly 100% UV protection) to make a short weld with a MIG welder in a situation where we didn't have any other choice other than to be stranded for another day.

Buck Repair Kit

I used a brass ball point pen refill hacked off with my trusty Buck knife to bridge the gap where my voltage regulator pin had pushed back. The repair lasted at least 10 years. Bucks are also excellent for cutting shims out of almost any can you find on the side of the road.
You have heard if the only tool you have is a hammer every problem looks like a nail, well some of us old timers think everything can be solved with a Buck.
Never leave home without your Buck.

I have seen it done and the bike being pushed was a big BMW. Worked way better than a tow rope

Yup it works

Pushed a Blackbird with 3 Givi's on it quite a few miles with my KLR on a trip across Newfoundland. Would let him coast down the hills then roll up and push him up the next one. No rope to get tangled.
