Changing tires

Anyone know somewhere I can go that will change my tire within an hour or two. It is already off the bike. Coming from galveston and we all know how expensive gas is... Trying to avoid making two trips... Thanks in advance

Cycle Gear at 45 & Edgebrook will do it pretty cheap. $20 for install, and they'll do it pretty quick. Only thing is that I was there with DeadFred when he had his tires replaced, and it looked like they nicked the powdercoat on his back rim. Texas Yamaha on W. NASA may do it for you, but not sure.

unless they have recently changed their policy, as of last fall, Texas Yamaha will not change tires if you didn't purchase them there "due to liability issues".

15 bucks! That's an amazing deal...

I just got ripped off by Houston Motorcycle Exchange... 40 bucks to put on a tire off the bike.

Guess I won't ever be going there again.
