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

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....
