Tire punctured what to do?

I spotted a small puncture on my back tire. However it doesn't look like it goes all the way through. The tire isn't losing air. What should I do?

i wouldn't chance it, go ahead and pull out what ever is in there, if it's empty then, keep a close eye on it. maybe haul it to Motorcycles Unlimited and have them check. you could always put some saliva or soapy water on the spot, if its leaking it will bubble!!

run the air pressure way up
then get some dish soap and place a dot on it
soap bubbles better then water or anything else
if it's not leaking ride it but stay on top of it and keep checking
it it's leaking get a new tire

Took it by Motorcycles Unlimited the guy I talked to said that its a normal rock puncture and it happens all the time. It shouldn't cause any problems. It looks to be at an angle and only about 1/8" deep. He showed me a few similiar spots on some tires of other bikes. Must of happened on 362 where they have the road all torn up.

I'll keep an eye on it just in case the tire only has about 3200 miles on it.

check for the wear markers inside the grooves, if you went to M-U, they would've been kind enough to let you know if your tire was in need of attention right away. Depending on riding style, 3200 miles COULD be maxed out for some people!!!

My tires looked a lot better than some of the bikes there. I am a casual rider, still learning.
