Default Labor cost to change tires

I have a 2008 Electra Glide Standard...just over 10K on it.
While the tires looked good at the 10K service, I know I'll need some prior to our planned long rides this spring/summer, and the wife (bless her heart) presented me with a new pair of D402s she found at a decent price ($231 w/shipping).

What are dealers charging to change out tires on HD baggers (assume I just take the bike in).

Yes, I know it's cheaper if I just take the wheels off (I have a hydraulic bike stand I use for cleaning/maintenance), but I have a bad back...

I have paid as little as $25 at an indy where I took just the wheel in. You should call the Dealership ahead of time to make sure they will mount a tire that you didn't buy from them. All the dealerships in my area will not mount a tire they didn't sell, they say it is a liability issue, I think it just is a ploy to get riders to buy thier more expensive tires.

I had a new rear tire installed on my '09 Ultra last Friday for $35 at Great South HD in Newnan, GA.

I suspect a dealer that will mount the tires will charge an hour labor for both, maybe plus tax and "shop supplies", so about $90. I found a guy on Craig's list with all of the equiptment in his basement, charging $20 a tire plus another $5-10 for truing the spokes. For the next time I need a tire, I'm going to get a balancing stand and do the whole job myself. I already take the wheels off myself, and buy tires and tubes online. It's not rocket science.

My Indi charges $120 rear & $80 front, everything included, take off, balance, test ride, etc. I supplied the E3 tires which now have over 14,000 miles on them.

Up here in the great white north, Dealer charges $100 per tire to mount & balance if you drop off he bike. $55. if you drop off the loose rim. That's after you are charged $265 for a D402. Stung me for the last time. Now I order them on line & change them myself. First change cost me about the same for the changer & balancer & a set of tires. After that I think I am making money. LOL.

Had mine done yesterday- indy charged $75 for the rear & he took it off & reinstalled it on the bike. He also changed the rear brake pads for the cost of the pads only.

4 of us went together and bought one of these last summer.It paid for itself right away.We'll charge anyone around 20bucks a tire,IF they take it off their bike....that's for liability on our part.
