TIRES, TIRES. This may seem an odd thread, but it seems I hear and experience more and more MC shops and dealers that don't honor any warranty for tires and tubes.
Most recent experience: new tire and tube. Dealer in CT did the whole job. From removal from bike to remount. 700 miles and one month later, flat tire on the road. Trailered it back. NO nail, No valve leak. Just a tube failure. Call the dealer and he says there are so many things that can affect tire performance that they don't do anything about such a occurrence. Their answer: pay for a new tube and tire remount.
It's bad enough that the cost of everything asociated with bikes has gone through the roof. I know - I'm just venting now.
Any suggestions or observations?
