Okay if you fit them yourself.
Your local fitter/supplier may tell you to feck off.
Any manufacture date?

Yep, every intention of doing them myself, got myself two very nice 18" solid tyre levers a 10 years ago & fitted my own tyres ever since. Triumph ones were particularly difficult but these look easy.
Can't really question the price though, just thought another enthusiast may be interested.

Wheels bearings on XB's and 1125's should be changed with tyres in the hope they'll last as long as the tyres do :?
SKF bearings.
