If you're intending to put it through the valve I guess not.

your results may vary, but I've never had that stuff work, just spurted out through the puncture....

I have used it in my dirt bike tires and have had good luck with it. You will make an enemy out of the fella that changes your tires when he has to deal with the mess.  :192:

Just carry a plug kit. It fits under the seat, takes 5 mins to plug the hole, and the plug can last the life of the tire if its a clean hole.

I have Ride On tire sealant and balancer in the Trophy and had it in the tires on the K1600.  The website has a video of a tire being removed on a Ducati Multistrada after a year of use with the sealant and none of it is anywhere other than in the middle tread area and it is still a thick liquid material but no mess inside the tire or wheel.  I thought long and hard before putting it in the K bike and when I had new tires installed I had the dealer install the Ride On without balancing the tires (which cut the mounting charge in half by the way).  Never had any signs of balancing issues and TPMS worked perfectly, as it has on the Trophy.  If I ever do have any adverse effects or comments from the dealer when changing tires I will be sure to post it here so all can see it.  So far I'm a very happy user, although I've never had anything puncture a tire yet (yes I'm knocking on wood), but from a balancing standpoint it works as advertised.  Others are certainly entitled to their opinions and preferences, and this is just my own possibly worthless one.
