    Fookin nail !


    I have got a small nail sideways in the middle of my rear tire. Can I trust a patch? The tire has about half its life left.

    If you'd said stright thru, I'd say no problem, can you post a picture?

    being implanted sideways, I wouldn't be as concerned with leakin as much as broken chords.

    Hey pin head
    Go to motorcycle accesory warehouse, and get a new tire. I just got a D207RR 190 for the rear for $157 plus shipping
    the front was just over $100.


    Put it this way do you really trust a plug when you are leaned over in a corner?

    I have a service comming up soon and I am thinking of getting it changed then. I pulled out the nail and it didnt go through, it stayed in the meat of the tread (whew) 400 miles till 6k. I can make it last for 400 miles.

    Sean, let me know your impression of the Dunlop D207RR's and I'll let you know mine. They came stock on the Bostrom -- Ben likes Dunlop and they wanted to make the replica as exact as possible. Usually Ducs get Michelin or Pirelli's. The 207RR's are pretty new to market. The reviews have been very positive. Perhaps this might be a better choice than the Michelin Pilot Sports.

    I'll be trying the RR's soon as well. I love the 208GP's, but they fucked my geometry to hell and now I have serious head shake issues on high-speed sweepers. With teh 207ZR's it handled amazing...rock solid. Once I tear through the 208's it'll be back to the 207 carcass. mmmm....carcass

    Like I said before, I'd be more concerned with a cut or broken cord than a leak.
