You live more in five minutes on a bike like this going flat out than some people live in a lifetime.

I won't patch youir just asking for trouble. Unless it's a small hole. I had a carter key in my back tire I didn't want to take any chances. So I just replaced the tire I only had 2300 miles on it. Don't chance it, its not worth it.

If you need to get somewhere, and you can go at a slow pace, then you might be able to plug it. But Bikes travel too fast for plugs/patches. You'll end up blowin' out your tire and hurting yourself...

RnR Cycles tows --Call them up: 571 277 0892. We have take-offs that we can sell you to get you back on the street for less, or we can just order you a new rear at a great price.

I don't recomend riding on a plugged or patched tire to others, but I've run many a plugged/patched rear MC tire without sweating it.

I can limit my risk on a MC by always doing the speed limit, never riding in the rain, never running a plugged tire, and always gearing up 100% even for a mellow run to the store. But I don't.

I'm with windblown. I don't recommend it, but I've done it.

Basically, if I'm gonna be hitting the twisties hard, I will just replace the tire. But if I'm just commuting to work a couple miles through traffic, I will ride on a plugged tire.

The biggest thing to take away from this thread is to always have a spare set of tires in your garage. Things will happen. You don't want to be waiting 4 days for mail order.
