Take it out and keep on riding.... Unless you are testing edge grip like Marquez you will never notice. It didn't get into the carcass.

Store the kit in a small plastic bag under the seat. Plenty of room.

Using this. https://fr-stopngo.glopalstore.com/pocket-tire-plugger-plus-co2-inflation/?utm_campaign=pr_r&utm_source=https://www.stopngo.com/&utm_medium=wi_proxy&utm_content=en_US&utm_term=a
Quite efficient, no risk to loose the rubberized string, and no need for the tube of rubber cement. Works well. Save me and my friends multiple times already.

Marc;
The problem if there is 1 cut wire in a steel belted tire, it will more than likely cut the rubber plug because it's
under tension
The rubberized string doesn't come out, there's a 180° turn just inside the tire, once you trim the outside you're done
If you run over a larger bolt or piece of metal you can use 2 or 3 strings at once

I get almost free tires for my BMW R1150GS because BMW riders won't plug their tires
But I have 17" cast rims front and rear......so tires are plentiful :grin2::grin2:

The Stop&Go kit uses a mushroom plug that is soft enough to be forced though the hole by the ingenious tool but then expands inside the tyre (tire to you guys...). This is in effect held in place by air pressure from the inside as well as the grip on the sprue part of the plug. I have used them a number of times on car and bike tyres to good effect. The only time it didn't work permanently was when the offending screw was at quite a shallow angle, although it was sufficient to get me home on a slow leak.
