Trail side repairs always tend to bring out your inner MacGyver.

A home made plug

Some steal putty

And back on the trail.

That was my buddy Paul's bike. We made it to Crown King with no leaking whatsoever. So we decided to push it the rest of the day which included going down 216, Bradshaw trail. 50 more miles on the day and it didn't leak a drop.

Paul called Acerbis to see if there was a way to repair it. They said no but were impressed by the story and offered him 50% off on a new tank. They called him the following day and said that after the story spread through the office they wanted the damaged tank and would provide him with a free replacement in return. A new tank for the price of shipping, can't beat that. If that's not good customer service I don't know what is.
