New tire Screwed
 
Went over to honda dealer Saturday had new tires put on my 1300c. Woke up Sunday morn had coffee in my man cave while i checked out my new tires. Low and behold a dry wall screw in the rear tire. Not even 100 miles on em.

Actually that's the question should i plug n play..pull and patch..or replace it ? I do alot of 2 up riding with my wife.

I would just plug it. Done many and never had any issues. No big deal.

As with anything on here your gonna get opinions...in the end the choice is yours....but as I said plenty on here have miles and miles... :thumbup: I dont know what else I can add...

if done by the book.... clean area well.. use a good amount of cement...

I have put 15,000 miles on a plugged tire..

plugged many tires....

your call..

if you like... find a place that has the plug and patch together. its installed from the inside.
I have never used them.. but have installed them for others.

your tire dealer and manufacturer, Thanks You..

if your tire WOULD fit my bike ( it won't )
I would pay your shipping.. and I would have my next New tire.

my wife road with me.. from 1971 to 2005..... all over the east half of these USA...
plugs or not.

392,000 motorcycle miles over 50 years.... not one plug ever leaked or failed.

you are the only one that needs to Live with this choice..

sleeping at night is good.

by the way. I had a NEW tire valve fail one day after install.. stuff happens.
3 years ago.


make a choice on fact.. not fear....
