Tire Change

Can anyone help me find a place to change my front tire? Any members here still doing tire changes? I need to have it done within a week.

I changed the rear by myself but I don't have anything to lift the front end up. I already have the tire and dynabeads (if I can still find it). I would love to do it this weekend but weekdays possible.

Thanks in advance!!

I would do it as well but the combo wrench, hammer, screw driver pocket knife I always use JUST broke when I was using it to peel an Apple - That and my Tire Pump needs air - I usually charge $115 off the Bike and $240 on but with my service comes booze, hookers and blow.............but I need you to swing by my Bros house to pick the Blow up and bring it over..........and the hooker too - She is cool riding without a lid, no worries

Good luck Man

a good sense of humor allways helps, that shouldn't be a hard tire to change, and the DL is a good bike, and new tires are a great way to start the season, have fun!

I didn't make a offer. Our franchise dealership is way over price with all of our over head and professional techs who won't work for 8 bucks a hour.

I am hoping you are not saying it takes a tech 3 hours to do a set of rims that are off the bike.

I'm not in Aurora. The dealership I work at is in Elgin. We do tires changes 20 bucks off the bike 40 on the bike. No other shop or dealership can match what we have in stock for tires and tubes along with ride in/out 6 days a week.
