I was under the gun to get my wifes tires changed on the bike I just got her, 2004 BMW F650GS, so I could have it ready for her to ride after she passed her MC test in October of last year. I took the tires to local dealer #1 who asked for my receipt for the tires in my hands. I said I bought them else where and was told that they do not install tires not purchased at the store. The next dealer said he would do them, in 8 days at a cost of $80.00 each tire. I changed them myself. It takes a while with no machine and the last time I changed a tire for a dual purpose bike was about 2007. Practice for my future bike when I figure out what it will be.
