Thanks, Chris, Will. My wrenching days are LONG over with. My Dealer does EVERYTHING and my bike is PERFECT. It's just my wallet that's hurting ...

And the odd heart attack. No point in aggravating that by putting a wrench on something that weighs a thousand pounds - I'd rather spend my time riding. And my Dealer always gives me a new VV to ride while he's doing the wrenching. Takes a little of the pain out of my wallet, and I get to be glad I don't just buy a new VV that's not much better than my OLD one!

perhaps you could do some negotiations with the dealer on the labor cost, perhaps a little pasteries for the staff or something every so often. Just kicking an idea around, though he's not ripping you off, it is a relatively easy task that the whole op can be done in an hour by an experienced tech. But the book is what they bill by.

My dealer wanted somewhere north of $600 + tax for both installed last year. When I brought up the prices that I found on the Internet, they said my prices were below their cost for the tires. I believe most of the dealers source their tires from a local distributor, and unfortunately they just don't have the buying power of these large Internet companies.

This is what my U.S. guy says: " I charge $80 per tire mounted and balanced, You also have to add sales tax.
We charge $120 per tire for carry in (meaning tires supplied by customer). Remember all the the warranty and liability lies on the dealer that installs the tires. Just trying to make a livivng not a killing . "

BTW - My Canuck dealer wants $1,000+ which is why I'm looking south ... annoys me - I can buy the tires myself here from U.S. dealers for $45 more in shipping costs.

I went to several of the aforementioned websites for E3 pricing and found their current pricing well above what was listed in the beginning of this thread not a month and a half ago. DK Wants $220, not the $160 something posted above. What gives? Did you have to actually ask for some sort of discount?

It looks like they've all raised their prices back up. I'm going to wait a week or two and see if anyone runs them on sale again. If I find a sale price I'll post it.

 Prices run in cycles, start checking about a month before you need tires.

I am sitting at the dealer now in St Pete Florida. I went to put air in my rear tire to find it completely bald. Dealer quoted me $212. That's 3 bucks cheaper than cycled gear. Thought it was a mistake. The dealer wanted like $280 last time. They made up the difference by pointing out my front pads were just about on metal. Let them do it since I'm here.

I just got a rear tire from my dealer for $202.00. The good thing was that it was in stock so I didn't have to wait for arrival.

Ordered my tires yesterday. Tires plus labor is $520. Tax will bring it up close to $560 out the door. If they do a good job I got a good deal. This is Moto Riders in Kenosha, WI

Word to the wise when ordering on line read the spec sheet to make sure you are getting a radial or what ever your ordering don't go by the pitcher.

Second check tires once a month and twice a month when we get into 90's plus. Do not use a pencil gauge or a those little LED gadget ones. Spend the money and buy a real gauge. Check it with your shock pump and if its off take it back.

Its up to you to keep tires round
