New tire called for but holding air nicely:

Just pinch it up until the air stops coming out.

I would have said about 70ft/lbs, when the throttle is screwed.

Interesting,

I received a "donation" Tek Screw in my last rear tyre (PR3), took it to the local Honda Bike place and they plugged it for the princely sum of $45. They also advised it could be done a maximum of 3 times on any tyre. I guess this depends on the type of plug used.

Since then I have purchased a tyre plug kit, as I do some big kilometres by myself (several times a year) and in the middle of nowhere (well, it never happens on the forecourt of a tyre repair place, does it), if I get another donation, I can sort it out there and then - I don't have a centre stand so taking the wheel off is not really an option.

Never found any problems with the plugged tyre except it still wore out at the same rate... curious that!

On my way to work last week, riding on the shoulder, I picked up a screw in my rear tyre. Luckily I got there fine, but when I checked in an hour, it was completely flat. After work, I pushed the beast to our maintenance area to put some air, the hardest thing I've done in a long while. It was a substantial puncture but I was able to save the tyre by stopping at every servo on the way home. Took the wheel to the local bike shop and $30 later all sorted. Thankfully I didn't need a new tyre as this one is practically brand new. This was my second puncture in 13 years.

Got a similar screw type bolt on a brand new tire on my 07 one time.
Really pissed me off but I put a plug on it and it stayed there until that tire was done 6000 miles later...

I believe that in the USA most shops won't patch a tyre for liability reasons. Luckily here we don't have that problem. I see a plug as a purely temporary, "Get me home" fix but then patching the tyre internally is a cheap, effective sollution that will last the life of the tyre if done correctly. As long as lthe carcass isn't damaged you're good to go.

I picked up a piece of glass on my way to work one day and pushed the bike around the corner to the tire fix-it (Harlem, NYC).

The gentleman said that his boss wouldn't let him plug it. I suggested that he call his boss and ask for an exception. I could hear the boss explain clearly to the employee that he worked in a tire shop, his job was to fix tires and not call him with stupid questions in the future.

I plugged motorcycle rear tires before and rode them till the tire wore out normally. Maybe I was lucky? Suspect

Me too DM, but you have to watch your top speed.
Triple digit ain't a good idea anymore.

that would explain it. I don't hit triple digits.
I started riding motorcycles a year after my younger brother died in a car crash.
My mother was NOT pleased. So she asked me to promise her I would never hit triple digits.
Which I promised her. On public roads.
