Hi from a newcomer to the FOC.
You shouldn't have problems getting a tyre repaired unless the puncture is close to, or in the sidewall. You can have up to two PERMANENT tyre plugs done before having to throw a tyre. AA-type roadside repairs are only temporary however, and as they tend to open up the puncture too much to fit their plugs, then you DO have to bin the tyre afterwards. No one will want to repair a tyre that is close to, or beyond legal tread-depth limit, and certainly would not be advisable to do anyway.
Nick Crisp
Thanks for that Nick, but here's an excerpt from the Protyre website:
 
Repair to Motorcycle tyres can be carried out subject to certain limitations. A motorcycle that does not have a ‘W’ speed rating can have a repair carried out in the tread area of the tyre subject to the size of the puncture and any associated damage inside the tyre.

There is no British Standard for carrying out repairs to Motorcycle tyres with a ‘W’ speed rating and therefore most of these tyres cannot be repaired.
 
My dealers take the same view. They say that as there is no British Standard, insurance could be an issue if a repaired tyre were to let go. Much as it galls me to have to spend out £130, I'm not convinced that there's a viable alternative.

Was great to see you all had a great day was a shame our day got double booked and we had to leave early, but it was great. Thanks to Cert the father and son team for leading the way.
Hope to see you all soon.

Great day out, good to see old friends. Thanks for organizing it and sorry about the fuel stop 8-)



I ride a Hornet so fuel stops always welcome.
