I'm working with my dealer mwmallotte. It's going to cost me 50 bucks to have them mount my tire but they've done one other testing the waters. They still don't know if they want everyone coming to their door. I road by and showed them mine with 18,500 on it. I have another guy in town with a VTX that just got his tire in, but doesn't have a place to put it on so I'll probably be doing that one.
50 bucks, heck, I'm thinking about doing it myself. I asked them about packing the bearings seeigns how I'd just be bringing them the wheel with the tire off. They wanted an hour labor for that too. Funny thing is, the manual says you only replace the bearings if you pull them, they're sealed.
Sooo, I wonder about using this dealer at all. Granted they have to handle a bunch of models so it's probably just confusion on their part. 50 bucks isn't too bad to for me not having to do any work in these temps, but its still 50 bucks. If it will help make the option available for others.
