  17. Tire repairs

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    A recent "bad luck" post prompts me to put up this poll. If a tire on your TLR/TLS is flat due to a puncture, would you plug it? Personally, I would never consider plugging a bike tire... it's a bike not a car, and your tires are your lifeline.
