I take it back. I walked it up to the station and I found the hole
+! for me on this. I bought one a couple weeks ago from their website. They have a new Ultralite Carbon model for motorcycles available for $21.99, and right now it comes with an extra pack of 5 plugs free AND free shipping.If the hole is in the tread and not the sidewall, I have used these plugs on two cars and on my motorcycle for many thousands of miles. If it is anywhere near the sidewall, I would change the tire.
Metzeler M7-RR. I'll be putting these on my R3 when the stock tires wear out. Read the Cycle World review:Thanks for the advice! I will be getting a new set of tires within the next couple of weeks. I hear the Dunlop Q3s were pretty good but I don't think they have them to fit our R3s. Any suggestions for some really good tires? I just street ride mostly. I may take it to the track every blue moon.
Temporarily, I used a Slime plug kit. Seems like it's holding up good so far. Made sure tire pressure was at 36PSI yesterday. I checked it again this morning before work and its still at 36.
I felt like a stunt man yesterday walking it up to the gas station. It basically walked itself in 1st gear. Just kept my hands on the clutch and front brake. But a compressor is definitely worth keeping around.
I hear that brother. Buying an air compressor changed my life. I even bought a cheapie from harbor freight, been about 8-9 years now, still working. Well, maybe it may or may not explode in the next few years, but its been working well for nearly a decade.Get a small compresser from Lowe's or Home Depot (or even harbor Freight); you'll never have to go to the gas station for air again.
