Darkside

Good afternoon there anyone that could help me to try to locate someone or somewhere in the Northampton area in Pennsylvania to try to see if I could get my dark side Tire installed on my GL1800 Goldwing??

Before I befriended a local rider here, I took my rim and tire down to the local franchise, Goodyear tire shop. They have the equipment to mount a tire: They don't have the equipment to balance the mounted tire. I would supply 3oz. of Dyna-Beads to pour in before the tire bead was sealed. A tire is a tire, a rim is a rim. It doesn't have to done in the cloak of darkness.

remove and replace just the tire on the rim that you carry into the shop?

OR

Remove unit from bike, change the tire, and re-install the unit on the bike?

and to further clarify..... front or rear?


If it is the rear...... easy for them to take off the rear...... lay it down on it's right side, put the center stand down to aid in clearance, take off the lug nuts just like on a car..... (on some bikes air must be out of tire and on some you must take the rear exhaust hanger bolt out to let the exhaust pipe flex out of the way others just slips out)

So is best if it is low on fuel or sometimes some leaks out while laying down.
