    Puncture in tire.. Replace? Or Plug?

    Hey again, sorry if it seems like I'm hogging the forum. I'll try not to have any further concerns with my max, lol. So low and behold I spotted this on my rear tire. New tire? Or a plug will work ok? I'm kind of paranoid about the idea of a rear tire disintegrating from under me...

    Radial tire pressure

    I have replaced the bias ply with Shinko radial on the rear. The tire says pressure is 42psi. For those on radials, is that right as I am used to running mid 30s on bias ply.

    Rear Tire - Race or Roast? (Your Opinion Requested)

    My rear tire is currently square and bald in the center. Shows my riding style, I suppose. The next drag race scheduled here in Hungary is on April 29-30. I'm not a big long distance rider, so not many miles (Km) will be ridden between now and then. My options: 1. Ride lightly and hope the...
