ID:	50344Well I took my rim to a motorcycle shop on saturday to get a tire mounted and when I got home I noticed the guy scratched up my rim pretty bad. I didnt have time to take it back so I am taking it up there today to see if they will fix it or not. If they dont do anything about it I will definitely let you know where not to take your bike. is it just me or would you be off too? The pic only shows some of the scrathes, there are a couple more.

Unfortunately, that's why sharpies are popular at shops that change tires.. But yes, i'd be . It's actually very easy to change and mount most tires on a tire machine on not scratch the rim. You just have to actually pay attention and give a .

sucks that Motorcycles Unlimited has to do that because people blamed them for something (thats my assumption because out of the blue they started showing me as if i cared). They did stop showing me any scratches on my wheels, my reaction probably is why like wtf i dont care man just put it on lol
