    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.

    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 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.

    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 ^^^
