Use the type of patch that has the long rubber stem as part of the patch. Dismount tire and rough up around the hole add glue and push the stem on the patch through the hole from the inside and press the patch into place with a roller wheel. That is the best, permanent repair as the rubber stem vulcanizes to the hole and fills it while the patch seals from the inside. A rope plug will require you to enlarge the puncture hole as they do not fit in very small holes.

"jdrocks" uses that size, so look at his "BUILD" threads in:
Other Motorcycle Make and Model Discussion .....I know it'll be in one or t'other Kawasaki ER-6C, that's C as in Custom ...OR this one. The 2021 Versys V649HP, and 2023 Versys Scooter.

Good luck!
Thank you! you have been super helpful on the topic, I appreciate it.

I'm guessing your old new tyre is ok for a plug too... if you still have it
tell your lady that chances are you wont be spending on a rear tyre for a long time

Yes, i think i can just patch the other one too... I did keep it as a backup. I should be good for awhile i suppose! Ill need to find some other excuse to grab those shinkos though.
