Question about 2005 Derbi Boulevard 200

1 Answer

Tire saftey Got my first puncture in twenty years last Saturday. With only 1500 miles or so left on my rear tyre (tire) is it worth repairing. It was a straight forward puncture by a 3/16” wood screw. I have read that some manufactures don’t recommend speeds over 80mph with a plug type repair. The last thing I want is a tyre (tire) to let go at 100mph plus or even at any speed for that matter. Any words of wisdom.

A good patch job (removing the tire and repairing with a patch on the inside of it) I feel is much better than a plug IMHO I used to do allot of automotive tire repairs with patches and can't remember if any actually came apart or became defective. The plug may have a tendency to loosen and leak. On the other hand allot of people would replace the tire just to have peace of mind with regards to motorcycle tires. 1500 miles is close enough to justify replacement. ,,
