Yep i carry plugs, patches, and a compressor, sometimes changing the valve stem core works too if thats where the slow leak is comming from, worked on one if my motorcycles before

Someone once told me I couldn't plug my tires with slime in them because the glue wouldn't stick. I showed him that I could insert a plug without the use of glue, ha.

I know this is an old post, but I’ve had really good luck running a mix of alumaseal and antifreeze in my tires. It won’t plug huge holes, but seals pin holes and really works well on beadlocks. The best part is a tube of alumaseal only costs .99 cents. I mix it in a water bottle with antifreeze and use a small funnel and piece of fuel line to pour it into the valve stem ( with the core out) shake well before pouring.
If you ever need to dismount s tire, it’s no where near as messy as the slime or other goops.
