Tire mounting and balance CO

Hi, traveling through Denver and surrounding areas this weekend and was hoping to find a place or somebody that has a tire changer and can balance wheels on a r1200gsa. I can show up and dismount wheels, just need some new Metzlers I am carrying installed. Thanks.

BMW of Denver would be my first choice. Woody's a second choice. Either place, I'd verify the torque setting.

I think he's looking for an inmate with a a NoMar or Harbor Freight changer rather than going to a dealer.

Balancing GS wheels

You are almost going to be stuck going to a dealer to balance those. The front is no problem but the rear needs a balancer that it can be bolted to.

PerformanceCycle charges $25/tire for mount and balance of tires not purchased from them.

If you don't mind working on it yourself I heard of a place in Denver that charges $10 an hour to use their lifts, tools, etc.. Local forum riders said it was good and they used the place to change tires.

Thanks for all the replies guys, I will be checking these options out. I'd love to do it myself or trough an inmate, but worst case I will be hitting the dealer. Thanks again!...I love this community.

I just called BMW of Denver to price tires and mounting. Tires turned out to be cheaper than online and the mounting balancing is $25/ea off the bike or about $55/ea on the bike.

The fee to reset my service light is ridiculous, however. $55!

If anyone has a GS-911 locally, I'd love to give you a high quality sixxer.

We can do the off bike mount and balance for $25.99 each without tire purchase, or $13.99 with tire purchase. Generally, we do them while you wait. Good prices on tires as well
