Most bike shops that have liability insurance won't/can't
patch or plug tires. I know ours has a specific clause forbidding it in the policy.
That said, if the damage is minor like a small nail you can plug it yourself with a kit from any parts store.
If you need a new tire we have great prices on the ME880 cruiser tires and we keep a good selection of sizes in stock.
Call or PM for the BEST PRICES in Houston for PARTS and ACCESSORIES.
MAKE SURE TO MENTION YOU'RE ON MH TO GET THE BEST PRICE!
NEED GEAR? We have a great selection in stock but if we need to order it we GUARANTEE FIT!

I now have 12,000 plus miles on my V Star & the rear tire will probably need to be replaced sometime in the fall.
I keep my tires aired according to factory standards & ride weekly [ mostly freeway \ highway miles ]
Would appreciate your input.

Cornbread, where are you located? There are some good folks on the board who may not mind trailering you to Motorcycles Unlimited for free/beer/lunch.
Consider replacing first, ME880's are the way to go. Mixed reviews on plugged tires but if you must, it should last you till you can get a new one.
