So Kosher told me about the $200 tire deal at Brighton HD. That's installed pricing. I needed a new rear at some point so I decided to make the purchase this week. Called, they still have the deal (will run indefinitely or as long as they can), so I set up an appt....

My out the door was $215. Took them about an hour.

Now for the negative, which I can deal with for the deal.


Their customer service was nill. The service writer I had when I dropped off was basically an ass.

When dropping off the bike he said, "and we'll check your back brakes for you." Which I replied don't bother, I checked them 3 days ago when I serviced the bike."
So about 30 mins later when I was eating something across the street, the ass writer called me and told me, "the tech checked the rear brakes and they are getting a little thin, it's $99 to have them installed right now." I said no thanks and he said my phone cut out. So I repeated myself and said no thanks I'll look at it later. He just hung up on me. No bye, no thanks, no nothing, just click.

As I walked back across the street the tech was going for a test ride. He gets back, and I check the bike, sure enough, my brake pads look great. This was a classic up-sale tactic. This is how they are going to pay for these "$200 tire jobs".


So would I go back? Sure, it's still a steal of a tire job. But I warn you, they aren't friendly there. Further, be sure to check your brakes and such. Avoid the up-sale.

Its always something with dealers. But it is a screamin deal if you manage to avoid the upselling. MSR on the Agitator rear tire alone (the only tire you can buy for it right now), is $309.

They will do the same deal at Motor City in Farmington as well.

Funny, Motor City ran this same special last fall. When I asked about it for a friend earlier this year, they had to check, when the service writer came back they said they would do it because they would "price match" what Brighton was running.

But Brighton and Motor City are owned by the same person. "Price match", LOL

That's a damn good deal to have done while you eat lunch. Even the 99 for brakes isn't bad since the kit is 60 bucks for the pads alone.

Yeah it is a good deal.

$39 isn't a deal being the caliper is already off and there for it requires only one small allen and a screw driver.

Hell they charge .8 hour for the rear tire but the tech did it in like 25 mins.

I have my appointment at Brighton for Thursday, getting both replaced before the start of the season. Originals only have 9k on them and still look pretty good, but since I'm riding two up a bit more and plan on taking some longer trips this summer I figure it's safer not dealing with 7 year old tires. I'll let everyone know how it goes when I get back. They quoted me 460 out the door, still a pretty decent price.

Brighton HD are Butchers! I recommend you take the wheels off your bikes to take in for the rubber change. I would not ever leave my scoot there to be worked on again ever.

You have been warned.

Good deal from the dealership on the OEM Dunlop Dag.... cool !
Dag...I'm adding this, dawned on me a minute ago. Get with Bagger Dave. He's getting a set of tires installed as well . Better tires than the stock Dunlop and installed Local to you..in Taylor for about the same money.

Brighton Harley took my scoot in for the 10,000 check. Like a dumb ass I was led to believe my warranty would be at risk if I didn't. Sooooo in it went. 48 hours later I went to pick it up and it wasn't quite ready so I'm standing there back in service looking thru the window into the shop And here is a monkey putting my passenger pillion on????? WTF why did they even take it off for the 10,000 mile check I'm thinking to myself ?
Soooooo the bike finally gets wheeled out and I start looking it over.... Immediately noticed the monkey who put my passenger pillion on ripped a gash in the seat with the star washer that is stock on the screw that holds the pillion in place WTF!!! Now I'm really looking the bike over. THEN.... I found globs of grease all over my brake rotor in the front which of course was mashed into my brake pads. NOW I'm smoking hot Fire is coming out of my ears and nose I go and grab the service manager and dragged him out show show him what they had done. The guy was a dick and basically said nothing.... WTF! Here is what your going to do dipshit you are going to order me a brand new passenger pillion and give me my money back for the 10,00 mile check since you were going to send me down the road with grease on my rotors gee whiz asshole don't you think I might need to stop at some point?????
So nope I didn't get my money back and I did get the new passenger pillion and I did ride the scoot home with grease all over my rotors because I would not let them clean the crap off. They nor any other stealer has ever touched my bike since . It now has 95k on it all work is only done by me. Fresh out of Harley school mechanics are hack monkeys. Never never again!

They were actually pretty decent to me. They were backed up so it took them a couple hours but my daughter and I just decided to have lunch in the area. Theres a 50 dollar rebate on the tires as well, but it's in the form of an HD gift card. Still better than nothing though.

Cool Dan. Glad it worked out for you. That is a good deal for sure.
I also had my tires replaced Saturday along with the new enforcer wheels and rotors, front and rear..... 19" front wheel . Very happy with them to say the least. Had Biker Bob install them. I was told 1 1/2 install time. First one in at 10am. 5 hours later I'm leaving the dealership !! Funny thing is, I never asked wtf the deal was. I know they were super busy and the tech more than likely had a lot of distractions. Honestly, I didn't mind much. Just shooting the shit with some people I knew and some I just met. Good day anyway.
