Effing nails!!

what shop around here will patch my rear tire?? I swear every rear tire that I've put on my bike gets a nail in it. The tire has maybe 1500 miles on it. I refuse to get a new one. Someone around Houston has to patch tires right??

Jimmy plugged mine and it did a Three Sisters trip and a track day with no problem. Made a mushroom plug believer out of me.

You can find plenty of plugs at Cindie's!

Good luck with your fix. Shouldn't be too hard.

Have some really good plugs at the work place if you wanna bring it by, I'll do it for you.

Ive never unmounted a bike tire but im good at stretching tires that shouldnt fit and what not and can patch/plug your tire if you're willing to accept no liability on my part.

The patch plug is a patch from the inside but also has a plug that fills the void in the tire to keep it all in place. Really awesome patch.

I have all you need to patch it, except for the desire to perform the labor.

That said, bring that over and I will watch you do it, and show you how if you need a finger pointed.

What part of town are you in? I know in Katy the Polaris/Suzuki dealer sells the mushroom plug kits. Call a few shops, Motorcycles Unlimited, Cyclegear.

I had a perfectly good 2CT on the back, and got a nail. I went and bought a new one. Less than 100 miles later, I got another nail. I was throwing tools, and screaming words that I'm not sure have been heard in this solar system.
