Default gorrila glue for tire plug (yea or nay)

instead of rubber cement

I bought these crappy arse plugs that came with the cement I needed. I wanted just cork plugs but they were only available in a $30 complete kit, figure to try these $2 plugs and cement instead. They leak, don't insert right (broke 4 of 10) and are shaped like a devo hat. The glue is worthless and want to try something stronger.

What if I soak that plug in gorilla glue, does GG work on rubber?

Go get plugs or patches that don't suck... Gorilla glue is mediocre at best unless used on wood.

The problem with GG is that it dries hard, and when your tire flexes it'll crack and it'll leak again.

I'll just pick up some cork plugs somewhere else, that's all I need.

OT Consumer Alert: Do Not Buy This;



I can hear the air leak down to 20PSI with these worthless plugs.

i like those plug types that are the sticky rubber strips. they seem to work pretty good. i ususally push them in and leave maybe 3/4 inch or so and then light the sticky mess with a lighter and let the rubber and goo get all hot. i leave the tails then just drive over them and it cramms the rest against the tire. i've done this to a couple different ones and it works pretty good. can usually get them at any gas station just about.....

I've even had luck using these dry. You push them in folded over, then yank them out quickly and it doubles back over for a nice tight seal. I got mine at Harbor Freight for a few bucks.

yeah, I know what I need thanks. The hardware store I went to only had a massive $20 kit including these.... the sticky cork plugs weren't available stand alone (outofstock). I have the tools.... just need plugs and weaseled into those lame $3 rubber plugs.

Rule 1 of motorcycle tires. Never patch. It's a $100 tire, is that worth the risk?
In a car, where you've got 4 tires and you aren't going to fall off, go right a head, in your lawn tractor, your yard kart, even your bycycle, but not a motorcycle. That's my .02.

holy **** dude, you're seriously going to risk your life to save a hundred bucks? At the very least, pull it off and use a bike patch on the inside, with the vulcanizing glue.

It's a plug. I bought some crappy ones that didn't work. Bought some better sticky ones today. I plugged it. It's not leaking. I didn't use gorilla glue.

It's a scooter, going less then 45MPH the air would leak slowly if anything. My old tire lasted a while with a plug.

Is it that big of a deal? I could see if I were hitting 100+ MPH, but a scooter with a slow tire leak is dangerous?

It's a pain in the arse to remove; need to take exhaust off too. I had to break the seal when I bought it with my truck and a jack lift. Hard to put back on too, just a big pain in the arse project I don't feel like doing if I didn't have too.... the local shop had a machine that couldn't work with a 12" scooter rim.

I thought the plug would be enough

Having gone down at 25, I'm not interested in adding 20 mph. It's your road rash.
