Decided to come back, aye.
You will hear different thing about repairing tires or replacing them. I do not have a problem plug/repairing them if they are in the middle of the tread and is a clean puncture. But I don't much like that on a front. Since you have the custom you should be tubeless also so you don't have to worry about the tube.
hard for me to say with out seeing it. But the "better safe than sorry" way is to just get a new tire.
