Has anyone worked out whether an 8 oz (small) bottle of slime is enough to do both tyres on the AT? It's not that I'm a tightwad and can't afford the bigger bottle, just that I don't want to put too much in

Put one in each tire then take off the tires and throw them away because slime is crap.
This is true! i don't use it myself. A mate used it and when he got a puncture it was a messy job fixing it. I would just change the tube when i get a flat.

I accept that there are mixed opinions on whether slime works, but as stated above for me it did. I just want to make sure I put enough in but not too much. Dibbs - I was thinking that although the tyres are large diameter they are pretty skinny compared with other motorcycle tyres

I've decided to use their recommendations for the dirt bike range, which is one small 8 ounce pack for the whole bike. I know our tyres are a bit bigger than a pure dirt bike but the difference isn't huge. And I will put 1/3 of the bottle in the front and 2/3 in the rear. Just have to cross my fingers that it doesn;t gum up my tyre pressure indicators.
