I can't answer that. I have never paid to have a motorcycle tire installed. I always do my own. Well....I might be able to offer a possibility. Years ago I worked at the Honda shop here part time. The mechanics were not paid an hourly wage. They got a set fee according to the job they did. No work,no pay. Some jobs paid better than others. They loved tune ups. A tune up,new plugs,points,condenser,valve adjust etc could be done in 30 minutes and paid I think 15 bucks for a 4 cyl bike. A set of tires took as long and paid 3 bucks to the mechanic. For that reason I got stuck with all the tire changes so I got pretty good at it. That could be one reason. I wouldn't change a tire for 3 dollars,(my part). would you?
