I have a small nail hole in my rear tire with 1800 miles on it. Can I have it patched on the inside and re-balanced? Or is the tire trash? One more thing, is the chain a 520 or 525? And what do you think about going to a 41 tooth rear sprocket while I have the wheel off? Thanks in advance, Aldo

inside patching is better than a plug, but take a few
minutes and decide whether the risk is worth it.
personally, if i'm gonna go to the trouble of getting the
wheel and tyre off, a new tyre is going on.

Monsters use 520 chains, ST2's use 525. I was hoping to use some old Monster sprockets temporarily on my ST2, but couldn't because of the size difference.

Put on the 41-tooth sprocket. You'l really like the improvement.
