    Chop Chop...Surely this is off topic. :wink: You are discussing the Bagging of GAS.... NOT Air.... OR as it is genuinely and uniquely created by Women... is it seen as an equal opportunity.?

    Remember when you were a kid and your mini bike wouldn't start? So some older kid would look at it for you and tell you it had no compression and that you should go to the shop and ask for a can of compression. As funny as it may of seemed back then, I actually discovered that, that can of compression worked really well in my tyres.

    same here, crash n bern. our local yamaha shop had the cans of compression next to all the powerbands. i saved up my pocket money as a kid to buy a two-stroke powerband for the honda XR75 and it would smoke all the YZ80s in our neighbourhood easily.

    I only use hot air on my bike. I get it for free from Jo Momma and CS&M. I have a round the world airship trip planned for what's left over.

    Sorry, but the air here is too ugly for my camera - it broke.

    Where I used to work you could get some cool air (frozen). Would make a tyre leak slow down ... but the tyre would be a bit fragile? And the presure would be a bit high as it warmed up.

    Frozens not ideal, What you want is fat air so it's too thick to escape. It used to be called Finilec. That's French for 'Fat air' That stuff was so fat you could actually see the it, problem with it was that like the French it only worked when it felt like it.

    Personally, I wouldn't mind some 'air. Could put it on my 'ead, always wanted an 'airhead. :D

    How about condensed air? Carry it it a small tube. Just add some N, O2 and some other crap, voila! :deal

    Obviously, this thread has run out of puff.

    Not surprising really, We all probably need to give this contentious topic a bit of space, take deep breath, get outside more often.
