Like said, trust matters. If the dealer works on most modern bikes with ABS, leave it on. But if you take it to "Willie's Harley speed shop and Tattoo Parlor" take it off.Buffalo said:It's a matter of personal preference and how much you trust the dealer. I've had 13 rear tires mounted on my Exec now by my local dealer. I've never taken the tone ring off and they have never bent it.
Craig, you'd be about 2/3's thru your 3rd Darkside tire by now. :twisted: Bridgestone should send you a free set as a loyal customer.
