The tire clearly states that it is tubeless. Why do I need a tube?
Why do they recommend new brakes so often on my tire changes now, my old Harley almost never needed them.
Can I save money by brining in just the wheel instead of dropping off the motorcycle.
If it is a quick simple job like the Wide Glide the savings are modest because it takes us less time. Instead of us charging say $35 labor, bring us in the wheel and the ture change will be $25.00 labor plus cost of disposal, lube/sealer, wheet weights and tax.
Now if we are doing that Fat Boy or some custom wide tire kit. Saving are substantial because they are way more involved and time consuming.
On the phone all you would give me was an average price. I’m looking for a bid. An actual price quote.
Do you do tire changes on other brands besides Just Harley Davidsons?
Yes. But you will need to bring out your motorcycle for me to look at, and then we will look up the tires for availability and do a price estimate.
How often do I have to replace the wheel bearings?
On 2000 and newer models almost never. We have customers with over 150,000 miles that have not replaced them.
On 1999 and older models the book calls for them to be replaced with grease every 10,000 miles. If you go through them every tire change that is usually good. On the rare occasion that we need to replace one of the packable style bearings they are only $12.95 per side, but need the center end play reset after being replaced.
In you price breakdown how do I know if I have a Mag Wheel. They all kind of have spokes.
My inner tube still holds air why can’t I reuse it?
The old tube over the course of time tends to expand to the point of taking on the size of the area allowed, which is bad because a new tire will grow 4 to 7 percent over time with air inflation.
