I buy my tires then I take them to a friend of mine not far from my house. If you take the wheel off for him it makes it easier so he charges even less but can also do it with it on the bike.pm and ill give you his number hes right off i10 and mason. Im guessing you know how to take the wheels off.

Oh yeah the tires, wild west honda tends to sell them closer to cost but their service department will charge you a lot of money to install them. House of paint has some good sales on tires I believe, call up and talk to Tony, if you let him know youre off motohouston he will get you even better pricing. Install is very cheap there

And yeah ive installed a tire by hand before but its just a pain in the honestly. But hit up jimrad on here, next time he has to change his tire im sure he will show you how he does it

Yeah for sure man, I sent you some texts covering a lot of the track stuff. If you got any questions feel free to shoot me a text.. its fun as on the track and thats why I really think people should try it out a couple times.

i get the best prices online and install them myself. no balancing required. that may spark some debate but over 250k miles to back up my statement.

all i use to change the tires are a pair of 12 inch tire irons (spoons) from Cycle Gear. before that, i used large screwdrivers. seriously.............

Also, be careful of those Buell wheels.
Once there is a knick/chip in the powder on the lip, it's likely to spread around and chip off the whole lip.
