Hello guys,

I live in NJ (07054), and need to get the tires replaced. I have been hearing a ridiculous price of 200 bucks, if I take the bike in, and 100 if I take the wheels in (I do not have stands, otherwise; I might as well take the wheels in). Anyway, anyone knows a reasonable place in NJ to get the tires changed and balanced?

I have called at least 20 places by now, and they do not either deal with motorcycles, or if they do (motorcycle dealers) they are ridiculously expensive :(.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Those are ridiculous prices. I think its like 25 dollars a wheel on the bike here, or maybe it is 40. There was a how to posted on making your own tire changing station cheap. I would look into that. Or invest in like a nomar tire changer. If you plan to ride for a while it will pay for itself sooner or later. You could also make some cash off of it if you do others tires. But sorry I can not help since I am not from that area, but good luck.

Actually, I just found shop that would charge 25 bucks to change one tire, however; if I bring in the wheels. I think it wont be difficult for me, however; I need some way of picking up the motorcycle.

Now the questions I have are ...

1. What is the best/ most reasonably priced stand for this motorcycle? (anyone selling a stand, used or new, please let me know)
2. Is there any stand, that can be used to lift up front and back alternatively?
3. Also, is there any other way, that I can safely use as an alternative for now. Like wooden block, or bricks etc? (I would love to get a stand, however; I live in an appartment, and the only problem is keeping that stuff)

Thanks a lot for the input.
