I just last week received a set of tires from Dennis Kirk for $361.98 vs the $305.98 they're listed for now. What a piss-off!

Update: I emailed Dennis Kirk regarding the price differential and within 20 minutes they credited my card back for the difference. What a pleasant surprise! Thanks for posting the prices Jeff :-)

Thanks for doing the homework. Yesterday I purchased a used tire machine to make mounting a whole lot easier and new rubber will be on by next week.

I think the GL1500 E3s are BIAS PLY.  Correct if I am wrong!

Chuck, you are absolutely correct!
The Elite 3 tires for the GL1500 Goldwing are BIAS-PLY and you should NEVER run a bias ply tire on a bike that was designed for the use of radial tires.
The other thing you should never do is to mix using a bias ply tire (front or rear) and a radial tire (front or rear), as the difference in sidewall stiffness between the two types can cause bad handling characteristics (I've personally seen the results on a GL1800 Goldwing what happens when you mix the types of tires).

Meanwhile, here in Australia, the Dunlop Elite 3 REAR ONLY is $450.
Yet the US dollar buys AU$0.96.

Oh man, I'm feeling a whole lot better now. It doesn't sound quite so bad if you look at it as being only about 4 cents per mile.

I am going darkside......spoke with Dunlop rep at bike show last weekend, denies any issue with the E3's, told me to callibrate my tire guages....yes I use 3 different ones. I have riden 2 fronts out with a band in the center, I am on my fourth rear and all have cupped! Only problem is not many choices for mc tire with the weight rating for tourers.

interesting you said that.. cause on my 2011 vision in less than 2500 miles my rear tire cupped!!! and i have been checking air pressure.. my 08 vision didnt cup that quick... i noticed it on the 11 when i was washing it. there has to be something up wih their tires in order for a rear tire to cup in LESS than 2500 miles..

Lets keep this thread on topic. It's meant for members to post prices for Dunlop E3s, not a discussion of the dark side, Dunlop E3 issues, or any other MC tire.

When I bought my E3s from Bike Bandit last year, I also got another 10% off with my AMA membership. Just confirmed that they still honor the AMA membership. Still only makes it $349.70 shipped via ground, but with fluctuating prices, it might be beneficial later.

Here's what a nearby (in the U.S.) Victory dealer just quoted me:
"I have the E'3s in stock. The price has changed but I try to buy my tires in large volume and pass the savings on. 612.00 Installed .That's up 111.00 from two years ago."

Or as I see it, they are charging me $250+ to install them ... does this sound right ???

yes, and no. On the bike, they will charge you the hourly rate by the book time. I think the time is 3 hours, so that comes out to about $85 an hour. Maybe someone else will give you a better answer. I have a place I can take my wheel off the bike and they charge $40 to change out the tire, and I bring the tire also.

I bring the wheel in as well, from all my bikes. Less to go wrong (with the bike) while it's at the dealer....
