i came out to my garage this morning to find the back tire on my ninja 1/2 deflated.

i looked but found no puncture marks or anything sticking in my tire

so i refilled it with air and i'm letting it sit to see if it deflates again..

is it a hassle to get the tire changed?

I guess that would depend on what you consider a hassle:O

Tires range from about $120-$220 and installation ranges from about 0-$150.

That said, fixing a leaking tire isn't exactly rocket science and would be a lot less expensive than buying a new one. If it deflates again check for a leak - a spray bottle of soapy water will let you know where it is quickly. Be sure to check the stim as well as the tire itself.

just re-inflate it, then get your moneys worth by dropping a massive burnout on it till it's buggered, then buy a new one. Problem solved by having fun :)

My 1 week old tyre deflated on me. It was the valve. $2 fix. Check that before you trash it.
