Just bought a new drz400sm, only 500km on the clock so far. Got a puncture in the rear, fixed it no probs, but went to pump up the tire but air is leaking from a single spoke, down where it meets the rim. What could this be, a bent spoke or something? I tried tightening/loosening but still it leaks.

I need urgent help because i had to leave the bike in the middle of nowhere country, and don't think it'll be safe to leave overnight!

It is not tubeless stock. The tyre is rated for use without a tube, but it has a tube on a DRZ SM. You cannot patch a flat on a stock DRZ SM with a standard tubeless radial plug. You must remove the tyre and repair or repace the tube(replace is the corrrect answer).
