    Well I went to the dealer today to
    find out what they charge to ghange out and balance new frt. & rr. tires.
    ...:bigsmiley30:$160.00:bigsmiley30:...
    Plus they wanted $393.00 + shipping + taxs for both tires
    100/90-19 frt. - 180/60-17 rr.(Pirelli Night Dragons)
    I did find a place that will mount and balance for $32.00 each if they are
    off the bike.

    So how hard is it to remove the frt. & rr. wheels & tires and remount when
    I get them back.

    I just replaced the tires on my 99. Wasn't too bad, and I am a klutz. Half day job to remove them and another half to replace them after thay were mounted and balanced. The self help guides helped a lot.

    hit youtube with "change motorcycle tires" that will give you lots of interesting info. I changed my own tire and balanced it too. Worked real well. I think the factory doesn't balance them because there were no weights on my wheels before. I did have to invest in the jack but there is thousands of uses for that. So in the end I only paid 140 bucks for my tire, 75 for the jack and my local Discount Tire gave me the weights and new valve stem. I've been buying tires there for years.
