I wouldn't plug it, not worth the risk.....



BUT, if you insist on plugging it, try Discount Motorcycle tire on Spencer hwy at Shaver. Tell them them you want the patch plug......its a patch with a plug made on to it... I have used them in the past with success but I wouldn't do it on a busa or something that really hauls azz..... I did it on a 600 and it lasted fine.

I think everyone here will tell you to at least patch it but really its best to replace the tire. Ask Cali.

replace the front and patch the back if you got alot of tread left. kinda up to you on the back. plugs can come out and patches dont always work.

yeah the tire is practically brand new. i think the plug patch sounds like the best overall to repair the hole. not sure if its even all the way through, ive been waiting to take it out when i had some time on my hands.

Don't plug it I would patch, mix some water and soap in a spray bottle and spray at the screw to see if it is leaking. Good Luck.

Seriously just get another tire if it's all the way through.
Is it really worth? You could in the best case scenario poss. wreck your bike man, then you have to buy more . Just unleash on a new tire and be done....you gotta pay to play.

I could just ride it on a flat at that speed and not worry about fixing it....
