Where to get motorcycle tire installed?

So I just got my first motorcycle which is a 2012 cbr250r. The rear tire has a cut in it which I think I need to get fixed asap. I want to know where can I get the tire installed if I take the tire to them myself.
Or is it possible to do it myself?

Are you losing air? How deep is the cut? Pics? You may not need to swap it for a new one. Cuts happen all the time.

What's up Marty? Long time, no see. If you need anything let me know. You purchased a lot of tires at the other location so when I say I have cheap tire prices you know it's no BS. You still have the tire machine in the garage?

If you're close enough to take the tire to cycle gear, you ought to head to Motorcycles Unlimited Instead, they do it for $15.00 rim off bike, if you tell them you're a memeber (I believe, dont quote me better ask first)

Well it will be difficult for you to get the rear wheel off then . Did you see if cycle gear has a tire in your size ?

I have a couple BT-003 140/70-17's. Have to work tomorrow though. I can donate a tire but won't install due to liability issues. I'm not a shop.
