Pilot Powers Tire prices?

How much should a set of Pilot Power tires go for? What is a good retail price, how much should installation be? I would plan to go to the dealer with the bike, have them mount & balance everything & reinstall it onto the bike.

Any idea of a ball park figure that is fair (not the deal of the century, but just fair)?

A fair price for a set of PP's is $240-250, as for M&B and install prolly $30per wheel.

My brother just had his 120/180 Pilot Powers done mounted and balanced at Stamford Motorsports for $295. But he took the wheels off and brought them to the shop. Will cost a bit more if they have to take the wheels off for you.

Soon as your born you're dyin.

Lol, nope they are still fully chickenstripped but Steve & Shawn (from yesterdays ride) did talk about the wonders of PP vs the OEM's.

What are the OEM sizes of the tires?

You'll love the Powers, man. If you're still riding on the factory Dunflop D218's it will be a world of difference.
