Did cyclegear mess up my tires?

I wasnt going to post this but i need more opinions. i had my z6 swapped with Pilot Powers for upcoming trackday and also cause i got a nail in the rear. At first i was going to get another z6 but decided on the PP because of the promotion and will mount my z6 back on after trackday.

anyways service was good but they messed up my front tire on removal. I asked if they were usable again because it looks like it might leak from there, but Jerry reassured me that they were good and usable and that he mounted many others more messed up than that.

of course word of mouth doesnt really do nothing when i decide to mount these tires up a few month from now and find that they leak through the damage.

i dont mind the inside edge being all ripped, it just there is a crater at the end of the sidewalls that looks like it will leak?

see for yourself, let me know. This was still a good front tire.

What did they use to remove it? a tire iron? or a screwdriver. I dont think i would use it again on my bike. The guy said he did other tires before that were worse? I could care less. It would be a no go for me..

that was my thought, u know, i have to vent, but i'm keeping it cool. obviously they wont admit they made a mistake if they did. but i am gathering opinions so they can reimburse me for their mishap. of course he is not going to say, yup its damaged, cant be used anymore, to bad, your loss. the manager and the dude that worked on my wheels post on this board too.

lots of em






bandidos prolly did it, snuck in when the regular crew went to lunch and morphed into them, you just didnt know you had murdering, theiving, raping asshats changing your tire.

seriously though, I probably wouldnt use it due to the seal, or tire bead being damaged to the cord. seems like it would leak

here is the deal. it may not leak when aired and sitting straight on the ground. but with the crater the way it is on the bead seat any flex of the tire that can cause a loss in pressure will result in bad news for you

Albert's a cool guy. Just let him know what's up I'm sure he'll do something about the situation. I'm sure if it's a mistake or mishap, either way, cycle Gear don't want to loose a customer let's say to EXimport!

I had a Pilot road that was missing a whole section where your tire is ripped... it was about an inch long. The tire held up fine with no problems.
