Why don’t we plug tyres?
It partly a choice that we make based on our collective opinion, and partly a decision taken based on our liability should a plugged tyre develop a problem. In a show of hands around the dealership, half of the team would consider riding a plugged tyre, and half of the team wouldn’t. It obviously depends a lot on the tyre, where the hole is, how big the hole is and how we feel about the quality of any repair. We’d likely all consider riding on a well plugged tyre on a 125cc or scooter but the replacement cost is so close to the cost of a repair, it seems a false economy.
