Im not going to go into details of all the crap that went wrong last night other than what went wrong with the bike. so I was driving down the street leading to my house and while Im on the corner *BOOM* my rear end slides out from under me. I didnt lay her down but it sure freaked me out. I pulled over to see if everything was ok since I did hear a loud noise. I saw a small patch of gravel so Im thinking it was just that that made me slide. I get home and wipe everything off due to the dirt on the road and get to the tires and rotate my rear tire so i can get all of the rim clean and its flat. turns out I ran over a nail (thanks construction workers in neighborhood). tires have probably 500miles on them... I am PISSED :gun1:does anyone recommend a patch/plug? or am I SOL

yea unfortunately I think thats what I might do. It sucks because my local shop wants to charge me 180.00 but I can get it for 140.00 shipped online, it just takes a couple days to get here. owell its life I think Ill save the 40 bucks and wait

Damn dude what a bummer about the tire but gravel patches are killer, you're lucky you didn't lay her down
yea Im glad I didnt. but If I did I wouldnt be too upset, I have my lower and mid farings off being painted so It wouldnt cause much damage

I've got a plug in mine and if you put it in correctly it'll hold.. I ran really hard last night and it stuck in there

For more piece of mind you can plug and patch it. Seen it done plenty with no issues

Don't do what I did.

My old rear tire had a nail in it and after a few days it would go flat. I let the tire get to low and the nail worked its way out. So I was left with a bigger hole. Idk why hahaha but I screw in a self tapping screw into the hole haha. So it does the job and holds the air in.

I go out for a ride to the back roads one night and as I'm coming back into town I feel the rear tire shift/wobble fkkkkkk....... I get home and find my rear tire completly flat.

Morale of the story, self tapping screws don't solve all problems!

Same thing happened to me twice. Once as I left the stealership from getting the new tire....

Most shope won't patch or plug so I you can find a place just have them patch it. (It's cheaper if you take off your wheel and put it back on) I have had one patch and one plug on my rear tire for a while with no problems. Way cheaper then a new tire

I think just to be on the safe side .. bite the bullet and get a new tire ... i know it sucks but safety is more important....the money you spend on a new tire might save you a lot of pain and suffering later on. just my $0.02..

Same thing just happened to me. Like it was stated before most shops wont patch up motorcycle tires so since I'm a truck driver I took it to the place I get the truck tires patched up and figured if that patch can hold up with 14 tons on it @ 110 psi then it will hold up on the bike and it's been over a month and no leaking at all. I do check it about every other day though. A new tire would give you peace of mind, but if you don't have the money what's a guy to do?
