Tire change on shaft driven bike

Any feedback on the cost of a tire change on these bikes. Looking to bring in my own tires and have heard it's around $95 from a few others online. Sound about right?

Bring the wheel in off the bike and Motorcycles Unlimited will do it for $15+wheel weights and tax.

I would have no problem doing that but from what I have read is that shaft driven bikes is a two man job. Don't have a second man to do it.

two man job...what kind of bike is that?? I've done many shaft driven bikes with ease all by myself. I'm sure Motorcycles Unlimited will not have an extra fee associated with it.

It's not much different. Axle, brake, rim...instead of a chain, there is a shaft. Maybe a little tougher to get the inside spacer lined up??....nah....it's not that big of a deal.

Ok cool. Didn't know for sure. First time owner of a cruiser. Don't mind tackling the job if it is not too difficult. Just read around that it was a pain to remove the shaft. I'm curious of the cost with and without tires. I'll call Patrick tomorrow and get some quotes.

Guess it depends on the bike. On mine, it's just
-lift bike
-remove rear brake caliper from mount bracket
-remove rear axle
-remove axle spacer/caliper mount bracket
-slip wheel out of splined interface
-replace tire
-installation reverse of removal

Yeah sounds about right. Found a pretty decent walk through on it online. I might tackle it depending on what Patrick charges. Might go that route as I don't have a large enough tool for the front unless I use a bolt with nuts on it. The back I can handle possibly.
