First off i want to thank everyone who offered to help or let me use the tire machine and balancer, i can never thank everyone of you enough

I am always here to help you fellas with anything you may need just shoot me a pm or text, call me and ill be there as soon as i can . This is what makes mh such a great place, everyones always hospitable and quick to help

I was lucky enough to find a tire shop on pasadena blvd. called alonsos tire shop who swapped it out for $15 and was extra careful to not scratch the wheel , i left there and stopped by almeda cycle gear where franky the manager balanced it and took care of me

Installed back on the bike and test rode it around the block and shes back to good as new

And for the record this was all on my way home

Ernesto, you are a welder, no reason why you can't build a mounting and balancing system and save yourself time and money. I used to mount my own tires and balance them. It isn't hard at all.

it man. You know SSS will rough cut it to fit in your trunk/truck/trailer? I had to have them cut them down to fit in my trailer. It was only 8 foot long. I built my trailer, my fence and tons of other things. Compressor rack in my truck etc...

motorcycles unlimited. Yes, I said it and I'll say it again. Oh, fk the moderator (probably Patrick) who erased the posts.

Posts are being deleted because someone is offering up a shop that can help out the OP or someone that is cheaper than Motorcycles Unlimited.

This forum is suppose to be for helping members. I agree on protecting your site sponsors, but if nobody is talking negative about them, leave the post alone. A simple tire change isn't stealing money.

I don't think it has anything to do with who is cheaper than Motorcycles Unlimited. Ernesto is looking for someone closer to his location. Motorcycles Unlimited is really far for him and I agree. I used to live right were Ernesto does. By the time he would pay for the gas and the trip time, it would be cheaper to pay more locally. I have only used Motorcycles Unlimited a few times personally and I have nothing but good things to share. Others may not. I cannot speak for their experiences. If post are getting deleted, then obviously that sucks and I don't think Patrick has the ability to do that himself outside of his own subforum.

Mike,
I could care less about a $15.00 tire change. We're one of the less expensive places in town for an off the bike tire change. Why? Because it's not that big a deal.
There will always be someone out there that's willing to do anything cheaper, let alone free. No skin off my back.
Have a great day!

I know Ernesto was looking for something closer to him. With that being said, posts being deleted is ridiculous. You'd be surprised on what he is a capable of as far as moderating on stuff outside his sub forum.

Again, I'm not trying to get into a match with him. He knows how I feel about him and what I think...

Deleting posts that was unnecessary, is stupid.

It's easy enough to change a tire...
but on Sunday or Monday, in fact most any other day after 6, its starts to get very difficult. Want to ride, but have to wait because your favorite shop isn't open...

Good tires are vital for your bikes performance and your life while riding.

My niece was tragically killed due to a blowout, in her NEW truck, because of a manufacturers faulty tire...Since then I have tried to help enable many riders drive as safe as possible.

I'm sure most experienced riders can look around and see the deplorable shape many bikes are in. I constantly see riders with bald tires. I want to educate and help them stay safe too.

I have been to many shops in my 40+yrs of street riding, they are only as good as the individuals which represent them.

New riders need guidance and support from the bike community as a whole.
I only try to do what I can.

Tire Town on College off 45 will change your tire for 10 bucks and they're good at it, real careful! They're about 3 blocks off 45 on the left when heading into Pasadena. Of course that's with the tire off the bike.

Paniro, what happened exactly? Since we started out helping, I want to make sure we can improve.

I use MagicMan....but he's on the NW side. He don't mind meeting me at 9 pm on any given weekday since that is the time I usually have available....or I drop them off one day and pick up the following. I think he charges me $10 a wheel, or bottle of whiskey for both. Don't think I've ever paid him less than $15/wheel though. Meeting at night when it's convenient for me is worth the extra pocket change.
