Tire service

Recently got a new tire for my bike and went to the Yamaha dealership and they told me it would be $94.50 to put a new tire on for me. Now this is a unbelievably high I thought. Does anyone offer this service around the Houston area without charging an arm and a leg?

He says "off the bike"

edit: nevermind, just realized you were saying that to the OP, and not making a correction.

FWIW , PAY someone to do it this time (preferably a sponsor lol ). Putting the rear wheel BACK on is a PITA, but this is something you should learn to do.


However, welcome to owning a motorcycle. Time to start learning to do stuff like this if you dont want to get charged "An arm and a leg". Labor costs man.

Have you done an r6? I doubt it.

I have a R6 and it doesn't take me much more than five minutes to get the rear on. Maybe my generation is easier lol.

What kind of special tools is required to get the rear on?

What special tools?? I never needed any for my 07 R6. Took about 5 minutes to get it off and 10 to put it back on if I was being slow about it....

So Motorcycles Unlimited sounds like it would be my cheapest option, unless anyone has any other places or private individuals that would be willing to do so.

No tools are NEEDED, but there are some that people have made to make it ALOT easier. The brake caliper is the hardest part to get aligned right.
