How much does your HD dealer charge?

Just wondering how much does your local dealer charge to change and put on front and rear tires? I'm gonna put 2 new tires on and I want to see if the price's are around the same. I have a 07 sportster

The Dealerships around me USED to charge me 1/2 hour service charge to mount and balance the tires I brought in with my wheels. But they have implemented a new policy in this area, and will not use rider supplied parts not bought through the Dealership's parts department.

So I buy my tire from The Motorcycle Superstore and take them to a metric cycle shop for mounting and balance. Last time, they charged my $30/wheel plus tax.

I couldn't stand the price the dealers were charging. I buy my tires from Jake Wilson and mount them myself.

Chopper75 and TQ have you covered. The key is you have choices, if you are trying to establish a relationship with your local dealer, tires is a good place to start. They know MSRP, they also know they can give you a 20% discount on parts so by the time your through that $74 per hour is worth your piece of mind and that relationship. They would have also loaded it up on a flat bed and hauled it in (free one way). So how cool is that?!!

But TQ is correct also, when I changed tires on my Katana, it was $110 for Dunlop D205 Radial tires for the front 110 x 80 x18", $130 for the rear 140 x 80 x 18mm, install and balancing was free cause I bought 'em there. New premium rubber for under $150 if you carry in is an astounding deal. All you need is a service manual and carefully thought out game plan.

Re: How much does your HD dealer charge?

If u r lucky u can find a dealer that is doin a special and they do the labor for free. Republic harley been doin free labor and 20% off the cost of the tire for dang near a year now I have had them do 2 rear tires and on front 1 in the last 8 months.

Re: How much does your HD dealer charge?

The dealer close to me wanted $100 for rear and $85 for front. I found a bike shop in Columbia, TN that did a great job for $100 for both tires. I bought both tires from Motorcycle Superstore for $212 delivered to the bike shop. All said I changed both tires for $312 total. I simply can't afford to have work done at the dealership.

Re: How much does your HD dealer charge?

I checked with two dealers about replacing the rear tire on my E Glide. Both wanted $195 for the stock HD Dunlop tire. One dealer said $70 to install the other said $100.

Found an independent shop who carries HD labeled Dunlops...$194 total out the door. And he let me hang out in the shop and watch him do the work.
