14000kms later and its time for new tires. Actually I probably should have put them on sometime near the end of last season, but I didn’t. I noticed that when driving either slow or fast I really didn’t notice anything wrong with the tires, but when travelling between 50 and 70 kms I found the ride to by very rough. Time to change the tires.
I contacted the dealer that I bought the bike from (Hyosung GV250) and asked how much it would cost to change the tires. Their price was about $250/tire which included tire and install. Of course I needed 2 of them, so $500. I then asked if they installed tires if I just brought my own in. And they wouldnt. I found out later that most places won’t. And I now realize that this is just a way for them to get you on the labour as well as on the markup on their tires.
Anyways, I found a place just outside of Ottawa called Black’s Corners Tire who will install any tire (as long as its new) and for a great price. I just had to get the tire and or bike to them (which was about a 40 minute ride). No problem.
Now I went online and found a great deal on tires. I got both the front and rear tires delivered to me with all taxes in for about $165. Not to shabby!!! Add in the install which was about $70 and I was half of what the dealer was going to charge! For the same tires!!
Hope you enjoy the video!
