Just watch videos for how to plug a tire in general. It's the same for a car tire or motorcycle tire as far as the process goes. I would say to pay more attention to cutting the plug right at the base of the tread patern though, don't let it stick up at all. NOTE: For a motorcycle tire and a traditional goopy strip plug, consider this a desperate stop gap only. Don't ride on the highway with one of those plugs in there, and don't take any corners fast. Your motorcycle is not as forgiving or gentle as a car tire...
As people have said though, for a permanent fix to a motorcycle tire, you need to use the internal mushroom type plug. You can get them and store then on your bike too, but they are more expensive than a traditional plug kit.
Also beware of the slime kits. I have 1 that was good, but others are pretty worthless. You need to get the reamer that actually has teeth. Some of their kits just have a little spiral reamer and it doesn't rip any rubber, so it doesn't really clean out the rubber. The good one wasn't even the most expensive one, and didn't have the T-handles. And avoid their compressors. I have had several and they are very inconsistent and very loud. If you want to carry one, get a dedicated small bike compressor, and if you want a good shop or car one, try viair on amazon. I have one of theirs and it is small and silent.
