Antonio (MykolJ) is coming by in a bit with a plug/patch kit.
Gonna try that first, then if it holds ride it to get a new one put on later in the week.

Thanks for the offer man! If it doesn't hold up, can I keep you in mind for later in the week?

Last time I got a nail it was like 2 AM and I was like 20 miles from home. I said fukit and took the access road all the way going about 20 to 30. SUCKED

Dont plug it, though, patch it for sure.

We plugged it and it's holding up well. Obviously don't want to take a track day on it.

Plug is good. Held overnight and I took a slow couple hours ride sunday morning with no press loss.

Gonna wait a couple of weeks to gather some funds then get a new tire.
What's the going rate for a practically brand new fkn tire with a plug in it? LOL...

Thanks again guys for volunteering to help!

Front tire I'd never patch.

Rear I would and have. I use the plug/patches(discount tire will give them to you.) Its near leakproof by design as long as you grind down the inside of the tire, apply rubber sealer and flex the tire appropriately. Keep in mind the hold mustnt be very large. If it is the problem is not a leak but a tire cord broken.

A broken cord will cause disaster whereas a leak would slowly bring the tire profile down while riding.
