removed a horse tack from the rear tyre on the cat this afternoon,the thing went flat in seconds so decided to plug it as theres plenty life left in it so got one of these on order - I might add some rubber glue as well  thumbs

I would only ever use it as a get you home fix , just put it down as one of them and buy a new one m8 , it will never wear like the rest of the tyre being a different compound

That's unlucky Dick! only you will know if your happy with the repair, but I did think these self fit plugs were a temporary repair  confused When I got a nail in the rear of new pilot road 2 after 300 miles I took them to C&S tyres in Middlesbrough who plugged it for me for a £10nner 3000 miles later and its still fine (and I do keep checking) hope they work for you Dick.

I have no probs getting a tyre plugged at a tyre dealer.The head of the D.I.Y ones are much smaller than the dealers.I know its because the dealer inserts from inside the tyre.
Hope it works for you. thumbs I don't think i'd have the confidence to do it/try it myself.

If I remember right Dick I think the DIY ones are limited on the max speed you can do, and I dont think its as fast as you normally ride!  racer2

I know Alan got that very same kit for when he went to France and it is a quality one so I would have a good read of the instructions and make your decision but as Flange says the tyre service ones are inserted from the inside. Be worth trying though mate even if only for the practice. You can be pit crew chief on the rideout.  salute thumbs thumbs
