I'm sure that these prices include removal and installation of wheels, which may be considerable work on some bikes- I used to own one which required disassembly of the exhaust. GS wheels are super easy to take off thanks to the single sided swingarm and the center stand. I also prefer to install the wheels myself because the excessive torque can do damage.
Shops around here charge $30-43 per wheel to mount and balance. Not bad for a 15 minute job, including the paperwork.
Our local BMW dealer refuses to install tires they don't sell, all others are happy to take the money.
