Is the search function broken again? This has been covered many times, an advanced search would have netted you all of the reading you could possible need. Since you were too lazy to search, I did the work for you just to highlight all of the information that you intentionally decided to overlook. I also rated this a 1 star thread, congratufuckinglations!!!

Just plug it. You'll notice if it starts losing pressure again. I can at least. It's not like it's going to blow out.

congratufuckinglations you wasted your time looking up those and typing it because I've already searched myself and I asked to see which ones people don't approve of. A smart post yields a smart reply. simply reply like every other person that has replied or move on.

I found a reputable shop on westheimer that's plugging and patching it tomorrow for a good price. thanks for your inputs. I woulda never known without inspecting tires. handling didn't even feel different. I recommend you check your tires now and pick out every lil that's on it. lets see who has an air leak and i'll tell you the shop.

yeah trust your gut.....dont just plug it. Most times it will be fine but riding at track speeds is unforgiving. had good luck with patches and best luck with the one piece plug patch.

You should contact whoever is providing the track day before you go. They probably won't let you ride with a repaired tire

Lol you can't even tell when looking at the tire. It was legitely patched and vulcanized by that shop; they do big truck tire repairs and stuff. Good looking out tho. Thanks bevo.

Just because they do big truck tires doesn't mean their repair is proper for motorcycle tires. Would really suck if your tire failed on the track and another rider went down because of it. Do the right thing and contact the track day provider about it before using that tire on the track

They patch and vulcanize tires; that's approved by the tire manufacturers themselves.
What the ? No stinking rider is going down because of me and I already told u "probably not" in an earlier comment, didn't I?
and guess how many riders are doing track days with plugged tires? More than you think
