Tires

Hey,

I'm in need of a rear tire for my 02' 750 gixxer. I'm on the NW side of town. Any suggestions on where to take it with reasonable pricing?

Thanks

Cool. Thx. Just got back from Motorcycles Unlimited. Pretty reasonalbe. Found out my bushings inside where like the centerpiece goes through holding the steering, not sure what its called yet, but when the tech applied the front brakes he showed me where it moved like a quarter inch. and it's not even supposed to move a mm. gonna cost 275. 00 plus a front tire for 116 total with labor 395.00. Got to be done though. The guys over there were pretty helpful
