Cool Riding on Plugged Rear Tireq

Got a flat last weekend from a nail. Do you guys ride on a rear tire plugged from a flat? I do ride my ZX-9 aggressively.

I do but alot of people wont.
If you ride the way you do you should just get a new one.
O' and if you replace your tire post the old one in the stunters lounge, please.

You will hear many different views on this. Some will say go for it, others will say, "It's time for a new tire".
Personally I have plugged many tires and had no trouble, nor have I heard of it actually being a problem for others.
The nature and location of the damge are big factors. A small puncture near the center of the tread is probably not so bad. While damage out toward the edge is much worse.
At the least it would be wise to avoid sustained high speed after a plug.

I had plugged and patched a tire in the dead center for a friend on here(inside patch, best you can hope for) he was forwarned. He had just got that tire to replace another with a flat. I understand his frustration. His lean angles arent too aggressive nor does he ride far outside the area he lives.

A sealing patch/ plug from the inside should be fine for riding street. I wouldn't do a simple plug without the inside patch (it's one piece, not speaking of putting a plug in and then a patch on top of that).

Personally, I have just bought a new tire when it happened to me. YMMV.

Personally I don't know any off the top of my head, but I'd start with site sponsors first.
