And it's 2 punctures!!!

Sticky string kit and compressor under the pillion seat. Back running in 15 minutes.

ItchyOxter:
Bummer! As they say, its not if, but when! At least you were ready for it!

It's been so long I had to read the instruction sheet 1st.

Guyver:
Touch wood I've only had 1 puncture. Not on the Tiger as that's got inner tubes and will be a nightmare to fix. I had a nail through my rear tyre on the last bike I owned. I used a Dynaplug and the puncture was sorted in seconds. Now I carry the Dynaplug kit in the car and used it a couple of weeks ago. Instant fix. Super easy to use and the plugs cost 3 each so nice and cheap.

Woody800:
A friend of mine bought an 800 XC recently and found a plug repair kit under the seat, whilst still running tubes...

Presumably the previous owner didn't get any punctures.
