Wow, I have NEVER had to remove a pulley for a tire change!

I've removed and transplanted pulleys when swapping out wheels though, and ended up re-using the bolts. Same for the disc rotors. But, the book does say to replace them. Your call.

And... 10k and showing cords seems like awfully low mileage. I've been averaging 16-17 thousand miles on my rear E3's and still had some tread left. The trick is to keep the minimum cold tire pressure at 41psi !!!

I use a manual tire machine. It requires the pulley come off. I have always just re-locktited and reinstalled with existing hardware. They look just fine after 7 tire changes... If I'm not breaking them, I doubt you will.

Yea its a pain.......A limitation of the tire changer I use. It can be done with the pulley intact but its quite a bit easier with it removed. Especially with the 180 on the rear of the Pin which is a bit of a battle to put on.

They sell bikes, but they dont supply parts for them. Pathetic company.
Funny, my dealer has had almost everything I ever needed in stock. When I order parts they arrive in just a few days. I just bought all the grommets for both side covers and the right cheese wedge, all the metal clips for both cheese wedges, and all the rubber parts involved in swapping the fuel pump to a new gas tank... everything was in stock at the dealer. Voltage regulator was in stock, but I ordered the stator and had it in 3 days.

Most if not all tire machines do not really handles the Vic pulleys. There is a dollar bill Clarence. You have to look at the edge of the pulley you'll see it did make contact with the machine jaws.
I would think re using the bolts would be ok. Clean them good and use red lock tight.
Think of it this way if dealer had bolts in stock then they put in new bolts if they do not have bolts in stock then they don't use new ones.

H-D bolts would walk out cause no lock tight was used or it was a aftermarket rim.

I don't know about most (cannot comment due to lack of knowledge), but for sure not all, as my dealer did it in front of me (replaced rear tire) with the pulley attached the whole time.

I would pull the rotor and reuse the bolts on it long before I would reuse the bolts on the pulley. Once the bolts are stretched when torqued; that's it. They are no longer as strong as they once were. For those who are reusing them over and over; cool man but I think that is more luck than anything else.

Did they say why they couldn't just turn the wheel over and pull the rotor instead of the pulley?

I do not know what the big deal is.. If it was bolts on a car head, I would say yes get new bolts. You do not get new lug nuts when you change your tire on your truck or car. And the stretching a pecker goes through, you do not get a new pecker. Or wish we could..
