Tyre looks pretty worn out anyway which is probably why you got the puncture in the first place
I like to drink lots of beer??

Count yourself lucky....I picked up a nail on a brand new rear tyre when I had my Tiger :dry:
maybe 5 km. I plugged it and it was good, but it bugged me to such a extend that I replaced it
not long afterwards. Sooo patch your tube, Put a gator in the tyre and air and go ride.

Here's the hole... Should I replace the tyre?

are you loosing air pressure?
is your handling being negatively affected?
if not - then no need to replace.

If you are planning 200+km/h replace because it might affect your wheel balance, other wise as Pannas said no need to replace if the tube does not come out of the hole while you are riding and it is invlated. The beauty of the KLR

Did a quick search of the forum, but can't really find the answers.

Slime, Fuggit, Tyre Seal etc, does this stuff really work or is it just a sales gimmick and secondly, do you run with it in your tyres or do you put it in once you have a puncture ( same as the spray can /Wynnes stuff).

It seems that every tyre shop has their own opinion, mostly that it is a complete waste of time and that it will throw you wheel balancing completely out, it will corrode your rims into a 1000 pieces ( don't understand that one as you would be putting the stuff into your tube and not directly onto the rim ). Is this opinion based on the profit level of the product or on fact?

I did seriously consider having my rims converted to tubeless by Doc KLR, but the cost of getting them up to Doc and then back to Cape Town make the whole exercise very expensive. The other problem is that there may be serious insurance issues in the event of a claim. I've been told that insurance will not pay out if you have modified your bike / car outside of manufactures recommendations??? In this case , running a tubless setup on a rim that was made to be run with tubes.

I run with Fug-It in my KLR'r tybes. The succsess rate of Fug-It is 80% on tube tyres and 90% on tubeless tyres. Fug-It will fill a hole up to 10mm big within 2 to 3 rotations. The ballance of your wheels will only be affected by Fug-It for the first 10km. Fug-It should be inserted in the tyre/tube before the puncture.

Another option that I know is Tyreweld that is in a spray can. Tyreweld would be used after you get a puncture up to 5mm in size and id only designed to get you to the nearest place to change/repair your tyre. Tyreweld should be good for up to ±70km even though I had it in my Truiph for ± 2000km after a minor panture.

The rest I cant comment on as I dont have any info to back me up.

PS!! We (Holts) manufacture Tyreweld and distrubute Tyreweld and Fug-It.
