Check the work that your tire installer does. I had two new E-3s installed on the
Wing today. When the bike was ready I paid the bill and started my 40 mile ride home. Out of curiosity I pulled into a parking lot before I got out of town and put the bike on the center stand in order to check things over. The rear tire was installed backwards. I had to go back and have the tire turned around. I am just glad I checked it as I am about to head for AZ later in the week.

I had a tire and angled stem installed on my rear rim once. Idiot mounted the angled stem pointing towards the rotor. Plenty of clearance on the other side, of course.

That would be the last time I used that shop. That is very basic stuff.:gunhead:

Depends on what shop you use. The local Honda shop here closed out, idiots anway, so I took my rear rim and new tire to a friend that runs the Kawasaki shop. He knew enough to tell the mech the shaft is on the opposite side they are use to and what orientation to mount the tire.

I understand that, but they pulled the wheel off of the bike themselves and reinstalled the wheel, based on what batess6said in his post. It's still a stupid mistake in my book.

That is different and I would agree a stupid mistake then.
