    I just blew a tire.....from a tiny rock! It is still in the rear tire of my '08 GSXR 1000. I found a Pilot Power Rear tire for $153.99 online with free shipping.....versus Mt. Baker Moto for $209.00 on Sale.

    Does anyone know who will install a tire not purchased by them?

    Mt. Baker Moto installed a tire a while back on my DRZ they didnt scratch my wheel.

    But really you should invest in some tools to do it yourself, I probably spent $200 but now i dont have to wait for a shop and with 2 bikes it will pay for itself in a year or less.

    Big difference between a Tard Rim and a Sportbike wheel with a 190 not to mention the price difference.

    I agree there is a difference but tires are pretty simple anyone who has done a few sets wont have a issue.

    Did you check motorcycle-superstore.com for the tire? I usually get all my bike stuff there and their shipping is free and super fast

    Thanks guys.....BBRP said they would do it for like $35 even bringing my whole bike down. They might even be able to plug the whole, they said they do it for police bikes all the time. I also asked for a price on a tire and told them where I got a good price online and they said they would match it.

    Awesome referral. Thanks guys

    190/50/17 Pilot Power 2CT Rear @ Motorcyclesuperstore 144.99 & free shipping. If the shop will match their price good on them, I would go with the shop.

    I invested in the stand and tools to change my own tires 2 years ago when everyone in Spokane wanted 50.00 to change a tire, and would tell you they were a week or two out if you left your wheel with them. :scratchea 2 weeks! I got a great balancer and wheel weights on eBay for a good price too. All the stuff has paid for itself twice over in savings. Since the economy has taken a dump most shops will do it for around 25.00 to 30.00 and same day service.:mfclap:

    Another shameless plug for BBRP. $29.29 OTD I asked them nicely, "PLEASE no scratches" and it came back beautiful:mfclap:

    I'd tell you to go to Cycle Therapy for local sourced tires and other kit, but not if you're just getting one mounted.
