It took a week and more phone calls but I have a new “new” back tier for my 2006 Yamaha XT225 (Yesterday June 25, 2020).  Two weeks ago at a new set put on.  Days later while returning from work the bike could not get up to speed and was super loud.  Turns out back tire was too big.  Causing it to rub again the suspension. Many phones call later they came and got my bike.  Saying the will order a new tire.  A week goes by.  Give them a call to see what going on.  They forgot about it.  First the guy said the tire wasn’t there and he would look into.  He called back said it was.   Then the guy gave me a speech about how there are down people in the shop.  Have been hearing that story every time I need to get something done.  Later that day he called back saying it was on and it how much it would cost.  I reminded him that last week you said it wouldn’t cost any thing.  Gave me another speech about how this tire costs a lot more money.  He wasn’t going to charge me labour and he had to change different departments money.  To makes the long story shorter got him down to $39.00.  I hate dealing with them.  Not going to buy anything from them again.

A few posts back talked about having some trouble with my new tires on my 2006 Yamaha XT225.  The back one is too big and was rubbing.  Got hold of the shop and told then what had happened.  They agreed to get the motorcycle and put the right sized tire on it. They would call then next morning to setup up a time.   That didn’t happen, so I called them.  They said, “someone would be there with in the hour.’’  Three hours go by and know one showed up.  So called back.  The guy on the phone said, he didn’t know they sent the trailer out of town to do a trade.  He would send someone else  over.  About an hour later that person showed up. As he was loading the bike onto the trailer.  Asked him if I should call again later to see if it would be ready.  He said, “He will get someone to call me.”   The shop closes at 5pm and now it’s 4:30.  Once again I call the shop.  They guy said, “I was just about to call you.”  Tunes out the have to order me a new tire.  This happened on Thursday (June 18, 2020).  This new tire might be in the shop Tuesday or Wednesday.  Once it’s there and put on they will call me.  We shall see.  On the good note they are not going to charge me any more money.
