Ouch! that is bad. If that is on the side wall, you might be looking for a new tire. I hope I'm wrong, but I know that tire shops won't fix side wall holes.

Could always try a big plug and a little slime just to see

But something tells me you're gonna end up having to patch that from the inside. That puncture right there on the corner of the sidewall, man, that's a helluva spot, lol, what a bum rap. That tires gonna flex right there, constantly, as it rolls, I don't see a plug holding.

That philosophy should only apply to radial/high-speed/passenger car/truck/suv tires, fyi.

There'd be no issue repairing that 'law in that puncture location.

Hell- back in my broked!ck days, I patch-plugged my Z-rated tires' sidewall punctures, and boiled the tread off 'em before that sidewall repair ever thought about failing. But that's just my experience, and not recommended

After a month with my first Can-am, I love it! Only 1 thing I don’t like, the Can-am “Clunk” noise. Mine is super loud and annoying... but I can live with it.
