So I've got the tire off the rim, now what...

I picked up a nail in the rear tire of my SV650. I managed to get the bead broken and the tire off. Can I patch the tire using something like this:

Motorcycle tires are too thin for an inside patch, by the time it's buffed properly you're into the steel. Put the tire back on and use this for a permanent repair:

Get their kit and carry it on the bike so you're always ready. Get a Slime compressor or a CO2 inflator kit so you're ready for a roadside repair.

In the US "breaking the bead" just means getting the bead off the rim shoulder so the tire can be removed...it does sound bad though ;-)

The tire bead is not broken - I have successfully disengaged it from the rim.

Where does one find a safety seal kit, or a plug patch?

Is there a shop that installs tires and repairs flats in your town ?

Go down there with $5 or $10 in your hand and see the guy in the shop.

I bought a couple boxes of patch plugs (2 sizes) from a commercial tire supply store. Many on the Internet. But if you just need one I'd go by a tire store with the nail you pulled out and buy one from them. You need to know what size hole you poked in the tire to get the right size plug/patch

Question
I have never heard that.
I usually plug the tyre on the road.
When I get home take the wheel off.
Take to bike shop
Get a inside plug put in.
Please
Enlighten me.
I do sometimes travel at very high speeds.
Cheers

I'm not real keen on patching tubeless motorcycle tires. If it ever fails, you could be in deep do-do. Most shops won't patch them (at least the ones I've tried). Those plugs with the flange do look pretty good though.

Is a tubeless tire? if so you coud patch and add tube if you had to don't put tube in with out patch cord will cut tube.

Tractor supply store near you?

They sell plugs or patches take your pick if its off patch it like its a tube put back on and air up no big deal,

Tire plugs are another ball of wax use their instructions and they usually will work I even have 6 plugs in one hole in my backhoe tires

Wall mart even has patches and plugs in the auto section.

in my tool lit i carry Slime brand patch kit don't get the bicycle patches

I stopped at the local O'reilly's and picked up a plug kit and also a patch kit. The instructions for the plug kit say to install the plug and then put a patch over it on the inside. I haven't tried it yet, but am wondering how one patches over a the plug that must be sticking through. Probably overthinking the whole thing....
