At today's labor rates that repair would cost as much as getting a new tire. The part that I object to is reaming the hole bigger on a MC tire. Having fixed tires like that long ago, you always cut some strands when you do that.

I have ridden plenty of tires with plugs . one started leaking after a couple of thousand miles i replaced it. tires just dont last that long any way. i cant afford to just throw away a new tire. seems like they are the single biggest expence
