Fix a flat

Rear tire is flat. And I mean flat. Don't have track to load it in a truck and my tools are all at work. Think I could make it to get new tires as long as I do it that same day? Won't be speeding either.

No that's what I was saying. Use it before I go and pick up some tires. Need new ones as it is.

Maybe. Depends on what happened to the tire.

Did you find a screw or a nail in it? Slow leak or fast?

You can get a plug kit at Wal Mart that would probably work better assuming you have tubeless tires, but if you haven't used one before check out a vid on youtube or something.

Other options:

Someone on the East side with a trailier, help out if you can.

Take the back wheel off the bike and take it to the dealer. Get a new tire put on and reinstall.

Good luck.

Fix a flat is very bad not to day messy, out may work but they will charge you extra to clean the tim off and portly the mrs it makes up, If it DOES hold air I would ride more than like 10 miles on it

since I plugged my tire 1 month ago, I have not lost 2 lbs of pressure in it. I guess I must have done it right.. if you were near by, i'd come help you out..
now I have an air compressor, and a fix-a-flat plug kit, not messy at all, but it sure looks like I won't be able to wear the tire all the way down like past before this one...

also consider that during the summer, the plug may come out, roads will get hot
