Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

As long as we are riding and not changing flats, I don't worry if they have Slime, home brew, Stans, Briggs & Stratton blue goo, etc. It's all good.

From here SLIME - Worldwide Leader in Tire Care - Repairing a flat tire? Slime Tire & Tube Sealant
The bright green liquid, synonymous with Slime, is actually a delivery system for fibers, rubber particles and other sealing agents. As the liquid gets forced out through the puncture it carries along with it the larger puncture repairing ingredients which pack into and seal the hole, preventing air loss.

You made no mention of these particulates.

Looks like repackaged slime would be my first guess? The original stuff is so cheap enough I'll stay right with what I have been running for 40 years now.

Right on man! As long as we are not using them patches I forgot what those even look like?
Still gotta have a since of humor.
