You know you can do the work yourself, right? It isn't a $500 job.

You didn't even do the testing properly from what I can tell. If you stop spazzing, slow down, and take your time diagnosing the issue, you'll find the problem.

I too get frustrated over mechanical problems, but they're not unique to this bike. Stuff just happens!

Again, have you made any attempt to reach out to the person that did the work? Calmly explain what's happening and give them the opportunity to resolve it instead of clamoring about how you got screwed.

Do I hear $601? lol A plug in a motorcycle tire? That sounds like a cheap short cut looking to bite someone in the @&&. If I was looking at a bike and saw a plug in one of the tires I would have to question what other shortcuts were taken on the machine and how safe is it.

I have a plug in my rear ME880 with probably more than 10,000 miles of tread life left. Tire is less than 3 years old. I found a small nail in it while inspecting the tires at home. Tire had not lost any air. No cracks, bike is always parked indoors. I also put Ride-On sealant in the rear tire as backup for the plug. I used the sticky rope type plug and installed it properly. It has about 4,000 miles on the plug. Even while sitting in the house for nearly 11 months waiting to be put back together, both tires still had over 25 psi in them. I would not trust a plug that anyone but a tire shop or myself installed, and shops will not repair a motorcycle tire. Cracks are bad news, they usually mean old tires, which have probably hardened and won't provide the traction they are supposed to.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
