Here is the deal.....I will need a new set of rubber and a service performed on my bike in about a month. HD dealer gets about $200 for the service and quited me $700 for a set of Dunlops mounted and balanced. I am admittedly not the most mechanically inclined guy around and don't have much in the way of tools to do service and a tire swap myself. There is a local indendant bike dealer that deals mostly new metric bikes but has a heck of a stock of used HD bikes on the lot. He advertises he does HD service.......I assume that if you can do service youself on a bike and stay under warranty then any service shop will keep me in warranty. Anyone have any opinions on taking my bike to an independant shop for routine service.....good idea or bad. The independant shop quoted me $100 saving on the mount and balance alone of new rubber so I suppose he'd be cheeper on the service as well.
