Dude the Autozone patch works great like I mentioned.* You can do it yourself sooo easily.* Its not rocket science!* When I rode on the street more often I would carry a flat tire kit in my trunk of the bike witht he little strips and tools to patch up a whole if I got one at any pt in time while ridin.. cuz U never know where you will go and get the flat!* I got a flat once just ridin to the mall! ha ha
ill go check them out 2morrow then. ive only seen those plugs that you stick that piece of rubber in then pull it out. The ones you talkin about does it require for you to remove teh tire off the rim the patch from the inside?
Naw dude it's that one you're talkin about where you pull in the rubber and pull out. When u air it up it puts sp much pressure on the apiece or ruber that it fuses the two compounds together and after riding a little while the nub wears intot he tire and you have to actually search for the patch cuz it blends in. I rode once w/3 of those in my tire and not once did I have any problems.. Just give it a shot and let me know how it turns out! right:

Re: pin hole size leak in rear tire.

hey din i think some people are useing the term patch when they mean plug. if you want to save the tire you need to plug it not patch it. a patch would be what goes on the inside of the tire flat against the inside wall of the tire. a plug would be what i think gianni is talking about which is the better way to go. it is what you stick into the hole and pull it back out. it looks like a black string of rope. the tire you have is held together by small string band, when there is a hole put in the tire you take a chance of one of these bands being cut, which would cause a weak spot in the tire. i know from personal experiance that if you ride hard on the tire with a patch on the inside of the wheel where the weak spot is you have a greater chance of the tire coming apart. it almost acts as if it wants to push from the inside out on the tire causing the tire to possibly come apart. a plug on the other hand in most cases normaly will just pull itself out of the same hole you put it in and you get a slow leak down. a little less stressfull at any speed than a tire just going flat.

by all means the safest thing to to here is change the tire, but i do know how sometimes funds can be tight. we do cary race pull offs at motorcycls unlimited, i'm sure we wouldnt have a problem helping you out and giving you a good price. you do what you wish just some insight from and experianced person on this issue good luck

Thank.. right:. I dont know why I kept saying patch to begin with. You fix the hole with a PLUG! Now that's what I wanted to really say.
