get me the cheapest quote from a reliable online retailer and i will do my best to match it. and if you dont have anyone to swap rubbers for you, we charge $20 per axle for mount and balance, off the bike... or $35 per axle on the bike.

that's a pretty good deal. location can be an issue though, but he's relatively local for you.

It's not worth the drive. But they're still my favorite shop. I can't count Bellevue Kawasaki MV Augusta in the rankings in my head because I know you. I feel the service you give me is both better and worse at the same time as it would be if I were a stranger. But I can't go in your shop at all pretty soon because I don't wanna buy a new 10.

I don't know where you live but you mentioned Faron and he is in Tacoma.I work for a dealership but I have my own shop I go to in Tacoma.They are Puget Sound Motorcycles on Center st. Once you are a regular you get discounts on everything except labor but I think that is only 65 per hr.They are great,I take all my bikes there.253 383-7628 tell them Denise(squirrel) sent you.If you know FastCat from pnw she is a mechanic there and so is Steve Richardson (owner) and Kim works the front....they're awesome,honest and trustworthy,good luck,D
