    Hi All,
    I am still riding here in Tasmania Aus. Just wondering if anyone does their own 'tyre' changes? :002:

    I have a fairly local independent motorcycle shop that swaps out tires for me for $20 each, or $30 a pair. I then do my own balancing. With the stiffness of sidewalls on many tires these days, I don’t mind spending the money to have it professionally done.

    Back in the old days of tube type tires, I always changed my own tires...
    I don’t miss doing it myself a bit!  :002:

    One of the only Triumph dealers within easy reach for me (60 miles) will match online tire sale prices and mount and balance for free if you buy the tires from them.  I've had two sets installed at no charge, and now with Tigertool when I have them put in fresh sensors while they're installing tires I won't even have to pay for programming.

    That is a good idea. See how much you can save now we can by tyres online.  Can I ask what is a Tiger Tool and sensors

    OK OK have found out what a Tiger Tool is and the sensor is the wheel sensor. I have but not installed the software for the Dealer Tool I wonder which is better? :017:
