DueceDog wants to know Dino or Syn?
My local indy charges me right at $200 to replace my rear tire (Metzler). Drop the bike off in the morning and pick it up that night.

the dealer charges around 220-245 for a tire plus one hour labor(105) plus tax.

Indy charges 175 plus one hour labor(75)

Internet charges 140(no tax) for same tire but you have to find someone to mount it.(motorcycle superstore.com)

Tire replacement

Not safe and other responses I am sure will follow this but I currently have two plugs in my rear tire, a Continental Race Attack on an 09 Vrod. All I did was pull the nail, and insert a plug, both times in my basement. I do not tour any, just a lot of local riding, to the tune of about five or six thousand a year. The plugs have held up for more than several thousand of those mile and those include several trips to the local eight mile drag strips. My local indy has plugs that pull thru from the inside that I would trust, of course I have had good luck with these. Best to everyone.

A thread on a different forum dedicated to long distance riders asked about plug experiences, and all who posted, about 2 dozen or so, had good experiences using plugs for thousands and thousands of miles. Don't recall any who had bad experiences with plugs.

Only plug I've had was in a front truck tire, and it lasted tens of thousands of miles, FWIW.

Hey Wizard,

What part of AZ?
Check the Wheel Store or Cycle Gear (hafta bring in the tire/ rim assembly @ CG).
I'm in Gilbert near Queen Creek. Got a jack and pretty much whatever we might need to pull the tire and rim.
Lemme know what you figure out.....

Have also had good experiences with plugs ....
The one thing that I wouldn't do is to run a tube in your tire. If you get nailed again, you have a blow-out which is a different can of worms than a slow leak in a tubeless tire. Once the tube is punctured, the valve stem wants to come out of the rim. When I was a kid, I had a blow-out on the back of my worn out Indian ..... terrifying situation.

As others have said, remove your wheel and do your own work ..... it can be very satisfying ....

Sounds like you went to one of the "Ride Now" HD dealers, they are famous for bending the customer over.

I agree, I had just bought a new rear tire and picked up a nail 2 years ago , Then took a 2200 mile trip to Maine. The plugs I used were shaped like a mushroom. Pushed in and pull back to seat. After 2 years, 10k still no issues. tdlr

Thanks for all of the responses and help.

HD in Chandler AZ = $458
HD in Mesa AZ = $305
Independent (HD Certified Techs) in Tempe AZ = $195

All for the exact same Dunlop 401 150/80HB16 Tire installed.

The choice was clear ... Live Fast Cycles in Tempe AZ ... It still had air so I rode it in and dropped the bike off this morning ... and got a free ride to work!!! It will be ready later today.

I don't use the harly shop for anything but as parts chasers for that reason. I have seen a couple of guys pay over 2g to get tires, bearings, and a general service and tune up. I get the tire from an on line source usually on sale in mid winter for right around $100. Then take the wheel off and bring it to a small time privately owned cycle shop and have it mounted and balanced for 35bucks. Put some grease in the bearings while it is apart and away I go for another season. You need to get a jack and have very basic tools and common sense with mechanics.

Lesson learned eh? for tires:
https://www.denniskirk.com/harley-davidson/

http://www.americanmototire.com/ This is an Arizona company so you will have to pay sales tax

If you need an OEM part not available aftermarket : http://partsfinder.onlinemicrofiche....mc.asp?Type=17
