Tire Installation - How Much Did It Cost You?

Just had tires installed at a dealership but not a Honda dealership. They charged $62 for the front and $72 for the rear and this is for tires that I purchased in their parts department.

How much did you pay to have your's installed?

Here in North Texas the mount and balance price starts at about $40.00 a tire and runs to about $60.00.

I watched some DIY videos and it is waaaay more work than I would do to save 60 bucks.

How do you support the bike to remove the tires when there is no frame under the engine?

I pulled my wheels off and dropped just the wheels at the shop, $10 CAD each install and balanced. So like $3.45 USD
