Have you checked back with the shop they may be one of these guys who figures you have to change the front and rear at the same time.. Never know.. It sure sounds like they want to change both..

tmd11111 wants to know Dino or Syn?
I may get bashed for this but I'll say it anyways, put a plug in it and ride on. I picked up a sheet metal screw in the center of my rear tire on my 11 RGU with only 4k miles on it. I put in cord style plug then trimmed it flush with the tread using a razor blade. I've since put about 4,500 miles on it since and there are no signs of the plug leaking or tearing out. The trick is to make sure you trim it flush or lower then the tread. If you just cut it off with a pair of side cutters leaving some of it about the tread you chance pulling the plug when the rear tire accelerated.

No bashing here. I got a screw in a 2 week old avon Venom Radial ($189 online plus 50 to install) I took it to my tire change guy and he plugged it, split the legs of the plug on the inside and patched the legs down and seal. He then balanced it and I rode it for a little over 9 thousand miles. I made sure to check pressure more often, but it didn't need any more air than any other tire.

If the plug is down right, it will ride.

I'm afraid to pull it out, I thought if I could make it to the shop with air still in it, it would be much easier to deal with than a flat in my garage.

Called near-by HD dealership to find out what to do... it's simple...

Call ahead and make an appointment, They won't fix (liability likely reason) only replace, by the way it's not in stock so it will be a "few" days till it's in ... then only two days to replace ... oh and that will be $458 dollars (yeah American $) ... WTF? @#$^

We're talking $458 to replace the stock Dunlop 150/80 B16 with the same.

Is this real or is this just a bad dream??

I understand them refusing to repair, but $458 ... Really?

Yeah you got screwed big time. Our local dealer will sell you a Harley Dunlap for around $140-$150 and install it free!
