This is why we always check the wheels and show customers any damage on the front side. It's not the customers fault, but sometimes there's existing damage they're unaware of. A little communication on the front side goes a long way to avoiding issues.
As a consumer I do the same thing if I take my car in for warranty work. I go over the car with the service adviser especially noting the condition of the area to be worked on. A ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Imo try calmly contacting the shop and see how they handle it.

thats why I do AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE of the work on my bike. If its beyond my ability or if I am in a crunch then I take it to Patrick and the Motorcycles Unlimited crew.
But tires I do myself. I get more satisfaction from working on my bike too.

I changed my spark plugs today, and they were loose when I removed them. Had them changed last year by a shop.
Do as much as you can with a shop manual.

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.
me off? Nah - i'd be getting a new wheel - what is there to be upset about?

Sure - as long as you lay down on the ground and look real close...

In all honesty, no you can't with the bags on. Can't see the pulley or the shocks either, yet there are people who put on chrome rear wheels, a matching pulley and chrome shocks...

Hard to tell how a tire machine would do that. Usually any damage done by tire machine is on the outer lip And most shops use "no mar" machine with delrin lip to help eliminate any scratches on outer edge of rim.. There are occasions where they still can mark the outer edge of the rim. I do not see how one could possibly do that kind of damage using a tire machine. There are a few marks that look like possible weight dragging but some of those are pretty deep... Is that white line on the right side scratches as well?? Got another pic?

this type of screw up happens a lot I guess, I get calls to "touch up" rims all the time from shops. I end up just doing the whole rim over, its a better job that way.

Guess I've just been one broke-@ss my whole life, but I'm just not one of those people who has to have everything centerfold-photoshoot pristine perfect all the time. You're gonna get a few scratches here and there.

Now, if I go in for tires and the place beats up the rim so hard that the tire won't hold air, then there's gonna be some serious issues. In this case, my take is that it's nothing a cold beer won't fix.

Speaking from experience, that looks like brake caliper scratches when removing or replacing a wheel. Is it on the caliper side?
