I've done road side patches but only to get home. (Rode one for 300 miles once!)

Personsally, I wouldn't rely on it. I'd get a new tire. When the tire punctures, it compromises the carcass and severs belts. I know it sucks, and I know tires aren't cheap...but a new ass and plastics are more expensive.

If done properly I would not sweat it.

Althought a proper repair will set you back $60 or more. Which is half the cost of a new tire.

I was thinking of gettin an internal patch not a plug... it's just a finishing nail thats in the tire. It use to hold air but now it's starting to really leak.

FROM DUNLOP

Quote:
Some punctures in motorcycle tires may be repaired.

Dunlop recommends only permanent plug-patch repairs of small (maximum 1/4-inch diameter) tread area punctures from within the dismounted tire by a qualified tire repair shop or motorcycle dealer. Never perform an exterior repair and never use an inner tube as a substitute for a proper repair. Speed should not exceed 50 mph for the first 24 hours after repair and the repaired tire should never be used over 75 mph. Check inflation pressure after tire cools for at least three (3) hours following run-in, or sooner if air loss is suspected.

No form of temporary repair should be attempted because secondary damage caused by a penetrating object may not be detected and tire or tube deflation may occur at a later date.

Dunlop does not recommend the use of liquid sealants. These are a form of temporary repair, and they may adversely affect ply material and mask secondary damage caused by a penetrating object. Reliance upon sealants can result in sudden tire failure and accident.
I have repaired a few and lived.
