Hey, all,

Sorry to post here if the moderators think it's the wrong area, but, since what I am looking for pertains ultimately to bike maintenance, I thought this would be the most appropriate area.

I did do a search of the entire site, and, while I realize that there is a "semi-sticky" of shops in general in California, it didn't provide the information that I was hoping to find, so I am left starting a new thread.

So, here's what I'm hoping that the more experienced riders in the forum can help with:

1) With affordability in mind, what are the best (quality, integrity, turnaround, etc.) mechanics/shops in the San Fernando Valley (or as near as possible to it) where you have had your R6 worked on?

2) Again, with affordability in mind, what is the best means of replacing tires?

Is it a) to find a good, reasonably priced tire place on the web, order them, and then have them installed locally (in which case, where would be the best places in the San Fernando Valley [or thereabouts] to have this done?), or b) to locally buy and have installed the tires from the same shop (also, in which case, where would be the best places in the S.F. Valley or near?)?

Thanks much in advance.

P.S.: There are quite a few riders in the S.F. Valley, and, if this thread can result in the disclosure of some solid and affordable mechanics and tire places, I think it may help many of us.

I do a lot of the wrenching on the bike myself, from how to's found on this site.
But here is what I do regarding tires. I order them on sites like motonekoparts or sportbiketrackgear and then i take the tires off of the bike myself using bike stands. I take the old rim and new tires to kal at pasadena yamaha who mounts and balances for 20 a tire. I know people on here remove their own tires and mount them using tire irons but I haven't ventured into that area yet. Lets see what others say, but thats how I roll. I have a set of 2CT's sitting in the garage which are going to get this treatment this week. Hope that helps a little. Ohhh and if you dont want to do it yourself, i was pretty pleased with Mark at M C tireworks on the corner of sepulveda and just south of roscoe i think.
