BMW R1200GS

How It Works

MOTORCYCLES

Because we understand all the problems a puncture can cause for a motorcyclist, the motorcycle sector is one of our busiest and fastest growing markets, especially for the touring bikes like the BMW R1200GS.

Puncture Safe is rated to 170 mph.

PunctureSafe provides the answers to a motorcycle puncture, as apart from sealing all punctures caused by objects up to 6mm in diameter, in the event of a larger area of damage PunctureSafe will provide protection from rapid deflation by giving a controlled deflation - possibly allowing the rider to get the motorcycle home, or away from a dangerous location.

Owing to greatly improved heat transfer from the inner tread area to the wheel, because of better inner tyre coverage of PunctureSafe, the life of the tyre will be extended, probably one of the reasons tyre manufacturers do not recommend its use!

PunctureSafe has the ability to virtually eliminate tyre pressure loss - even during long term storage.

Most importantly, PunctureSafe does not repair a puncture in a tyre, it “seals” the puncture, which means that unlike the conventional patch, the tyre cannot fail owing to excessive heat! in fact heat is very beneficial to the PunctureSafe seal.

BMW's R1200GS bikes are their top-selling models. For the 2017 model year the bike was given a facelift, with technical changes to meet European EU4 regulations. Side reflectors and an on-board diagnostic (OBD) indicator light in the cockpit to indicate a malfunction were added. Like the R1200GS Adventure, all liquid-cooled boxer models were given a damper on the transmission output shaft. The selector drum actuator, transmission shafts and transmission shaft bearing were revised. The GS was also given a new crash bar option, allowing cylinder protection covers to be mounted, as had been standard on the Adventure.
