Paper staples

My brand new bt16 after a couple ride is loosing air so I checked and got a little wire stuck in there. Plugged the hole and it's still loosing air. Looked again and there was a regular paper staple stuck there causing an air leak...that tiny little staple???? Wow motorcycle tire must be super thin.

take it somewhere to get plugged, they are not that thin as to be punctured by a stapler.
