    I don’t see that working well on a thicker casing moto tire. Plus the tall knobs could cause issues. $45 will buy a lot of standard tire plugs. It is cool that it reacts with the stans fluid to form a permanent repair. I talked with someone who works with Stans recently, at a moto race. He said they were not looking to make more moto related products but if enough of us ask, they may change their tune.

    Of course it has to have a tie in with Stan's fluid, right? With slime/stans/quadboss in your tube you could probably just shove a wad of cloth into a hole and it would patch. Now I'm sounding too negative, I hate to be like that. But $45!

    2 standard automotive plugs, wadded up and stuffed into a 1” slice. Held air though 5 more miles of racing, 5 of rough trail, and 10 of dirt road. It was holding air when I changed the tire 3 days later.

    I might give it a try in my MTB tubless set up but I don't use Stans sealant.

    Moto use - if you have ever mounted a lightweight MTB tire on a carbon wheel, it will leave the impression that anything designed for mtb tires
    would be useless for a moto tire .. just my opinion.
