Ninja 250r Red

I patched up my front tire with:

1.) plug
2.) slime (for insurance)

People/online claim that it wont hold and they're probably right. I was also, truck-less, like yourself and took a chance. It held under 50 mph and 20 miles total. I tested the plug, let it sit for a day, then did slime, tested it for a day, then was confident.

Stupid? Yes. But just telling you my experience.

I recommend if you have friends with stands, make it an experience and learn to take off the tire. Alot safer.

just find the hole and plug it. Then go get a new tire. Its not that hard of a process, probably harder to find the hole, than to plug it. Take a spray bottle of soapy water air the tire up and spray the tire down look for bubbles and you found the leak. Get plug kit from wally world run the file looking tool throught the hole a few times then ram a plug in there, done.

I am just very cautious when it comes to a motorcycle and a flat only have two tires and if you plug one, it seems like the weakest point always fails first and if im riding on a plugged or slimed tire it will be to get where i have to go to get a new tire...i like knowing BOTH of my tires are good..
