    Question Anybody ever "Slime" an AirHawk?

    I have an older AirHawk keep my butt more comfortable saddle cushion that has a slow leak. I'm fully equipped to basically patch any tire that I can get off a rim and could most likely patch this butt- I was wondering if anybody has thought to pump some Slime inside- and how it worked out.
    I have the Slime as I buy it by the gallon, wuz thinking of giving it a try on the AirHawk.

    Doesn't appear that will work:

    Maybe some other thoughts here? Or here?

    On the small leak that I have, I'm thinking it's worth a try Kurt. I don't have a schematic of the interior chambers but I suspect the interconnections are quite small. I'm thinking that if I fill the entire device and then squeeze out the extra it would give the "innards" a good coating sealing the current leak and perhaps extend it's life.

    I did it

    It worked for two years, then it was totally done.

    Well I kept on riding and finally it was looking like Airplane and I had to find the leak. It was right at where the stem enters the system so I patched it. I don't know how well the patch will hold 'cause of the bad location. It seems there should be some reinforcement at such a critical point
