I see you are in Canada. I would suggest checking out Fortnine or Pete's Superbike. Pete's may be a bit cheaper but they charge for shipping. Fortnine ships free with orders over $50. Your dealer will likely price match Fortnine, but probably not Pete's.
I've plugged multiple motorcycle tires and have never had a single issue with it. As long as it's in the tread area I don't have a problem with it. Some will differ with that opinion.Hi Everyone, I got a nail in my rear tire and I`m not sure if fixing it will be safe (use a plug) or better replace. The tire still in good shape...The nail Is right in the middle as it shows up on the picture. .Im about to take the nail out and put a plug in....Any suggestions??...THANK YOU
I have too. Cars and trucks as well. I used to use Fix-A-Flat when I did it. Don't even do that anymore. Put the tubeless tire repair in it, inflate it and GO! I've done it as far back as the early 80's. Never had a problem. Will do it again if necessary, no problemo!I've plugged multiple motorcycle tires and have never had a single issue with it.

Air is 78% nitrogen , but contains moisture as well. Moisture causes greater temperature pressure rise. Rubber is porous , so tires and tubes do lose pressure.One time, when I was still riding a Yamaha Fazer, I got a nail in a brand new tire while riding home from the dealer. Seriously think I'm going to buy another new tire? Really? Bwahaha! Plugged it and rode it til there was no tread left. It maintained tire pressure throughout. Never had to top it off. It was a Metzeler iirc. The Metzeler 280 on the back of my Nine now, I've never had to add air. It's maintained 42 psi for three years now. Same with the 140 front. I wonder if the shop uses Nitrogen?
