Oil, filter, and tire change.

Hi all,
Looking for a decent place to get my tires changed on the bike, ( i have the new ones), plus an oil and filter change maybe plugs as well including parts, need a decent price. (wondering if it can be done for about $150). Someone please let me know, wanting it done tomorrow evening or this weekend if possible.

You're probably a little light if you plan to take it to a dealer/shop to have this work done.

Most likely 45-50 per rim if you bring them in off the bike (double it if you want them to dismount/mount the wheels to be conservative). Not sure what an oil change would be, but with dealer provided parts + labor I'm guessing $75?

Look, I can appreciate this. I was young too, I felt just like you. Hated authority, hated all my bosses, thought they were full of shit. Look, it's like they say, if you're not a rebel by the age of 20, you got no heart, but if you haven't turned establishment by 30, you've got no brains. Because there are no story-book romances, no fairy-tale endings. So before you run out and change the world, ask yourself, "What do you really want?"

I've never had a dealer do an oil change, but $75 seems pretty steep. That's more than it costs for my car at the VW dealer. $150 sounds reasonable for everything. If you're willing to trust some forum members, you can pay a lot less.

4 qts of Motorcycle oil @ roughly 10 bucks a qt, a $10 oil filter, plus $25 for labor/oh (just ballparking )

There's a lot of forum members that, I would think, would love to show you how to do your own work. Oil/filter changes are fairly easy, the spark plugs require a more trained hand.

I know resurrection does excellent work, I've never personally dealt with him, but I have had conversations with him and he helped trouble shoot my cbr, over the internet. Guy knows his shit, for sure. I still owe him a 6-pack =]

Vern (smartbiker) does tire changes, and I don't believe he's *too* far from the streamwood area. He charges an insanely cheap price of $20/wheel off the bike. Half what the local dealers charge, and quicker service. I just had a front a rear done with him a couple of weeks ago. Great talking to him, and seeing his collection of bikes.

I'll be in Lockport on Saturday to work on my track bike, if all else fails, you can stop by and we can do your oil/filter change. I'd just ask you to bring a filter, as I only have GSXR filters, and pay for the oil I have stocked there (amsoil 10w-40) but I believe you'll have no problem finding someone more local to help you out.

I have just started riding and the first thing i did by myself is change the oil on my ninja 250. It appears you have 1994 cbr900rr i am not sure what he process is like on your bike but i would think its straight forward. It took me about 45 min to change oil on my bike. It was easy.

For the other work you might need to take it into shop, puting tires on will probably require special tools to do that job.

I think $150 is doable for labor, but might be close.

$70-90 for the tires on the bike.
$40 for oil change.
$50 for plugs

No way a shop would charge that much, a shop would charge much more.

the trouble with sport bikes.

1)fairing removal and if the bike has been crashed? install is never easy.
2)to do the pugs it requires fairing and tank removal some times the radiator.Plugs can cost over 50.bucks for the recommended type.
3)Which oil? this could cost 50,bucks as well.

I think maybe oil and tires you may find for $150. but plugs alone could cost $100.

Not sure about that. 09 CBR 600RR's are just as easy. no need to remove fairings to reach oil filter and drain plug.

My point was
these things take time and parts money.

Lets not confuse my reminding people that can't do it, that it takes time and money.

Some people make it out to be so easy. If you've never done it don't start without someone looking over your shoulder.

A stripped drain plug or cross threaded spark plug will ruin your day.

Good parts and service department. Last fall I traded in my R1 and bought a new ZX-10R and a bunch of parts through them. Good prices on parts (Keith in parts) and have heard from others that service department (Kevin) does good work.

well since they charge $40/wheel, then you're saying an oil change and spark plugs are $20. count me in!

take your wheels to the local guys here, they'll charge you 1/4 price of what most shops do and youtube how to do an oil change/spark plugs yourself. it's the basics of basics.

I will never understand the constant pressure for people to force others to work on their own stuff or take their bikes to non professionals. If otherwise intelligent people cannot understand the stupidity of having strangers perform service on their bikes or doing things themselves they have no business telling others to do the same.
