Most motorcycle tire manufacturers agree that if you must plug your tubeless tire for continued use, you should use this item called a Patch/Plug. It inserts from the inside-out which of course means dismounting the tire. The sharp metal quill guides the Patch/Plug thru the damaged area. Once rubber cement is applied to the inside patch head, the quill can be pulled off and the remaining air bubbles can be pressed out with your thumbs. This is the only type of tubeless repair plug that is considered permanent.
Consists of (6) Patch/Plugs. Thumb Buffer, .68 Fl. Oz. (20cc) Tube of Rubber Cement, & Instructions. Patch diameter is 2" (5 cm).
NOTICE: The accepted industry standard recommended by the RMA (Rubber Manufacturers Association of America) requires that an injured tire be demounted, the interior inspected, the injury drilled out, and a plug and repair unit installed by a trained professional.
Patch/Plug on GSXR
Posted by Paul on 30th Jun 2020
As stated by some other reviewers, I also heard about this product via Ari Henning on YouTube with his video on MCGarage. I had recently installed a new set of Continental sport attacks on my 2006 GSXR 600. After about 2 weeks of not riding, I came back to my bike with a rear tire that was flat. I put the bike on a stand and found a small nail slightly left of the center. I’ve always been told that a conventional plug is not safe, and I also couldn’t find a shop to patch the tire from the inside. After looking up different products, I found these patch/plugs to be the best and safest option. I also watched Ari’s video completely through and he even stated that he was rode 1000’s of miles on a tire with this product installed with no issues. I had a friend assist me in taking off the tire from the wheel, at which point I reamed the hole, prepped the area, and installed the patch/plug with the cement the kit comes with. After letting it sit, I reinstalled, and filled with air. I took a short ride and checked the PSI after, and it was holding steady at 35PSI. The next day I checked the PSI again and it was still looking good. I definitely feel good that my tire is safe to ride on now. I’d recommend watching Ari Hennings video on YouTube where he explains more about if your tire is able to be patched, as well as more about this product.
Tire is just a year old

Picked up a screw on a low mileage tire. Easy to install as Ari from MC Garage showed on YouTube. Only time will tell how well it holds up.

I got a nail in a tire with only 300 miles on it. My research indicated that the only safe, permanent fix is to use a plug/patch (the US Tire Manufacturers Association and the Tire Industry Association both state that this is the only acceptable permanent repair). The product is easy to use; I did find it helpful to watch the Motorcyclist Magazine "MC Garage" video showing Ari Henning using this product. I now have 2000 miles on the repair, and I am confident that it is good. In the past, I have had tires with plug-only repair slowly leak air. This tire doesn't leak. I've also had the bike up to (very) high speed on several occasions with no problem. In the future, if I need to do an emergency repair while out on the road, I will use a plug, but as soon as I get home I will take the tire off, remove the plug, and replace with the plug/patch. Great product.
Inside Out Plug Kit

Works as easy as you would want it to. Remember. Like anything you want to work well. Prep is priority. There's a good motorcyclist magazine youtube vid where Ari Henning uses this same kit. Its as easy as he makes it look. I've used internal plugs before and have never had a reason not to trust the repair.
