Tool Tube. can get a StopnGo plug kit and small compressor in.
Got a Held under rear rack bag from an inmate for $30. just to put pump and plug stuff in. Works great and out of sight.
This doesn't specifically answer your question but I use this Dynaplug kit. No T handle and super compact. Way easier to find a small place to bring it along.
(Mine is in my tail bag)
Did you make it or bought it?
I was able to find nice little spots to reuse my crashbar bags from my KTM 950 Adventure. Perfect!
I'm fitting small tools, plug kit, compressor in those 2 bags.
I carry this as well, but I've never had to use it. Has anyone used one of these plugs? If so how do you like them? I like it because it is a very compact kit.
I have one, but I've never had to use it.
Bought it and not cheaply. : O
With the stock seat in the low position there is just enough room to slip a plug kit and a small but efficient hand pump (11" by 1") under the seat. I use this pump on both my off-road and street bike rides.
Here's the arrangement under the seat of my '14 GSW.
The inexpensive mini-compressor, stripped out of its plastic case, and some string plugs reside in the small black bag under the passenger seat. The tube of glue, puncture reamer/plug insertion tool and some more plugs reside in a ziplock bag beside the ABS unit under the rider seat. This homemade kit has been carried under the seats of various bikes going back at least 10 years now, and has only been put into action twice.
so, my solution is: Got some 16g CO2 cartridges from amazon, and I had already the valve connector that connects the cartridges to the tire valve stem. I was able to fit 5 of the cartridges and the valve connector into the compartment built in to my Sargent seat. I then purchased the Stop n Go 1000 kit. It comes in its own vinyl zippered case. It's the smaller one without the "gun."
I will be able to tuck that into the space under the rear rack, above the taillight. Gonna put a leatherman knockoff in there too.
On the front tire, I deflated it completely, and two of the cartridges bring the pressure up to ~~25psi. I figure for the rear I'd prob need 3-4 to achieve that. So, I think I am good to go. And on my dash I can read tire pressure. I think this is a lightweight way of addressing the need, but I think it's adequate considering that this is the flat solution for around town, traveling light, ie not on the road, where I'll carry a pump that looks like the one pictured above ^^^
I kiester it so I have something to get out of my handcuffs later
I like the Dynaplug design, very compact and well engineered, my only concern being that the thing is small and slick. I have had a hard time pushing worms into a tourance and karoo, too hard a carcass. The T handle is still the easiest way, imho. I tried a lot of gear, will eventually get the Dynaplug too. On long trips I bring the pump (from best rest), CO2 cartridges and a small hand pump LOL! Tire irons and patches too! I guess I am determined to never get stranded!! Or maybe because I had 4 flats in a single 1,000km leg of a trip...
This week I found out I still have the BMW kit under the seat, but my go to gear is the T handle and plenty of worms.

I like these... I've used them 6 times with 100% success.
I've tried carrying my plug kit and pump in a fanny pack and a Camelback, but got paranoid about having hard and/or sharp objects on me in case of a crash. So now they get stored in a tank bag, topcase, or panniers.
Do have a specific issue with tank bags? Some of them can be quite small and nonintrusive. Side bags or under rack bags are also possibilities.
I've used the same kit a couple of times with the same level of success.
Anybody know if the BestRest Cycle pump will fit under the passenger seat in 2016 GS (not GSA)?
I carry tire plugs (rubber strings), and a can of fix-a-flat. Of course this doesn't help if your rubber valve stem develops a crack.
I can't speak for the 2016 GS, but the 2017 GS has no room that I can see to fit a compressor or pump in there.. *maybe* a tire plug kit, but not much else.. Makes me sad I carried my cycle pump, small vise grips, leatherman, air pressure gauge, and a tire plug kit on the passenger underseat area on my Multistrada.
I assume you've already got the GS? I've got the 2015, can't imagine fitting a pump under the passenger seat, it's a pretty odd shape. I manage a tool roll, multitool, rag, and a pressure gauge under my seat, but my pump goes in either a tank bag or topbox.
With the LC cast wheels, the valve already goes straight out to the side (out one of the spokes), so a straight chuck should fit best.
