Hi guys, just a question in relation to tyre punctures. Got my first a couple of weeks ago. Nail straight through the middle of the rear tyre. Luckily it must have happened close to home as i noticed the bike was doughey and soft in the rear only a couple of corners from my driveway. Pumped it up, it stays up long enough, and it it went down slowly, so it was a relatively slow leak. Rang and spoke to Marty at Top Gun Yamaha Ipswich, he said "bring it in and we'll look at it, i cant tell you till i see it if i can repair it or you may need a new tyre". Then he said "if i can patch it up, you can only go a max of 130kph" Pumped it up and took it in, the following saturday morning, Marty wasnt there, some young dude who looked like he was fresh out of high school or something, turnes out he patched it up with a puncture repair kit and i didnt need a new tyre after all. My qn is, Marty said dont exceed 130kph, but that was before he knew if it could be repaired or not, but when the young fella repaired it, he didnt say anything. Can anyone shed any light on this for me. Is it a safety issue?? The tyres are the original standard bridgestones, done about 6200km now. Im not one of those tear away weekend warriors who flies around everywhere at a million miler per hour lol, i am on a lams bike afterall, but i often cruise on 120-130 on the back roads.
