If you've got a 747 parked in an annoying place, anyhow...
The $90 didn't include a new tire? If it did, that might be a good price. If it didn't, that's ridiculous. My local Honda dealers shop wanted $30 to replace my front tire with my new Dunlop if I brought in the wheel.The local Yamaha/Suzuki dealers shop wanted $17 to do the same thing.Guess who doesn't have skinned up knuckles and is $17 poorer but is happily riding around with a new front tire?
P.S. That was 90$ PER tire at the "Enfield dealer" here in sunny Boston.
This is exactly why I wanted to take my tire/wheel to some guys who know about working with spoked wheels.
You'd think people who change tires for a living would know how to handle all kinds, but apparently not.
That's why I'm thinking of stripping the paint while I have them off. Don't want to do that dance twice.
I did the inverse and painted mine. It turned out quite nice. I did flat black on the forks to give a bit of contrast to the freshly painted gloss black rims.Did you strip yours yet?
