I paid $212 for the 240 metzler 888 from jp cycles. It looks better than the old tire too
Jeeze! $212 here, $216 in another thread, you are trying to bankrupt me!

But you're saving $350 per oil change vs. Harley.

I didn't know that they ever actually DRAINED the oil. I thought they just continually topped it off, so it was always clean...

I got mine for $196 at Cycle Gear. Might have been on sale.

Insert clever phrase here that will garner respect and love.

25 steps to change the oil. They missed using an impact driver to remove the cover bolts so they don't strip, and replacing all the gaskets so there aren't any leaks. Plus with the bolts above the suspension it's a mess unless they're pulled from the side and a diverter tray is used to keep the oil off the suspension.

The final drive oil should also be changed out. The primary chain tensioner and around eight other unrelated things should be checked depending on mileage, like the Jiffy Stand(tm)--this is how the bike is kept running and in great shape, minimizing the chance of a breakdown.
