na it's worked fine just as good as a new tire since the day I put it in.
they work and stay in perfectly i dont know how long they last for cars but if you put the cement lube that comes with it on the plug and plug it right it should stay in for a hot minute.

Also, the nail was a little off-center on the tire, so it's not in my contact patch for straight-line riding. I hate the looks of it more than anything, but I just can't do another $200 tire right now. I've plugged TONS of car tires in my life, but this is the first bike plug. I used a lot of glue and cleaned the hole really well first. It's holding fine, it just me off to see a plug in a brand new tire.

As long as you guys are lookin........... Why don't you all come out to the M&G on Dec. 6th? It's going to be at some wing place in Clear Lake/Friendswood. fmartinezjr knows where it's at.

None at the moment..... :-(

If you've already plugged it, you should be fine. You can also do a burnout(if you know how) to melt it in to the tire. Always done it on my bikes i've had, with no problems. I, at one point, had 3 plugs in my rear on my gixxer 6 05 and they never came out. Now, that's not to say they cant or wont, but you should be fine. Plugged a buddy's of mine rear on his z1000 and he rode it like that for the rest of the life of the tire. But if you got some extra $$$$ lying around and can afford it, then go get a new one. But you should be ok....
