You bought the tires online and they charged you full book rate, probably 1 hour front and one hour rear, at $95 an hour. Bet if you bought the tires there it would have been cheaper on labor.
An independent shop would be better on tire install...

If you baught the tires some where else. The shops jack the labor up. I take my bike to motorcyle unlimted and never had a problem. In fact they go through my bike really well just for a rear tire. They adjust and lube my change, adjust and check my brake and clutch.

I don't know guys - they did knock off the $6 recycling fee so it sounds like they are really giving a great deal. Sorry man - I hate to see people get shafted.

This is why this board is so great - I am moving to town next week (riding my bike down in the morning) and now I know to never go to Mancuso.

Too late now but for whatever it's worth, 2 Wheel Toyz has a special this month - free tire installation on bike I paid $140 w/ tax for a rear BT016 installed...going tomorrow or Saturday to get it done

$190 for labor alone to replace f/r on-bike is wayy, wayy too much! LaMarque got you lol

Motorcycles Unlimited gives a free basic service course and teaches you the basics of taking care of your bike. Take this class, buy some stands and don't get taken again. This is not rocket science.
