make sure that the shops around there will do it w/o you having bought the tire from them before you go. Some shops won't due to Liability purposes.

two or three tire irons, some lube and carefulness will do the job.

Wild West on I10 may do it but I'd check with them before bringing it over there. I heard that they may put you at the end of the waiting line if you didn't buy the tire from them.

Otherwise, you can make it to Honda of Houston on West Rd and Hwy290, try them.

the only thing about wild west is the guys in the service dept. are kind of careless when it comes to damages....they scratched my all up and put notches in the swingarm with their wrench! So, just look out...

There is a Yamaha shop in Katy right off of I10. Give them a call. You may be able to convince Kawi_JM to change them out for you. Send him a PM.
