Hi everyone, I live in the quad cities which is Davenport Iowa and I have an MP3 400 that I need to put tires and brakes on. I have a couple of questions. The nearest dealer that can do it is one hour away and they are booked out until sometime in November. Wondering if there's anybody that is near me that I could pay to do the work on my scooter? I'm happy to supply the brakes and the new tires just want to pay labor. Also on my current 250 I have the City grip 2s and on this 400 I'm either going to put the same tires on or I was considering the Metzeler road tecs. Wondering if anybody had any assistance or directions on reviews of those tires. Thanks in advance.

I've been using Metzeler Wintec (their winter tire) on my MP3 500 since it is only used during the cold season.

I am generally very happy with them but they seem to wear a bit quicker than the Michelin City Grip.

The brake change is super easy. You can do that yourself in about 15 or 20 minutes for both front and back. Order the parts online from Scooterpartsco or scootermercado (or AF1 or San Diego Motorsport). Aftermarket parts are alot cheaper.

If you take the wheels off yourself, any local motorcycle shop could put new tires on for you, if you bring the new tires. Same thing for a local (car) tire shop.
