Right, don't you have tubes? Spoked wheels should just need the tube replaced. Unless of course there was some gapping hole or rip in the actual tire. Was there any indication of what made it flat? Did you see a hole in anything?
Yup, motorcycle tire replacement is a racket. The dealer where I bought my 650 new doesn't even carry the tires for my bike, go figure. Not to mention they are so busy same day service would be a pipe dream. I tried to get an appt once and it was a full month out. Been going to the Honda dealer instead, faster service and cheaper labor rates. $60 per tire change instead of $100. Buy the tires online and bring them in, tubes too.
$350 for one tire and labor is very, very high. What tire did they put on it anyway? The most expensive one they could dig up?
