My point exactly. A tire that is balanced from the git go will stay balanced as tire wear and age takes its toll. That is the goal, to be balanced and stay balanced over the life of the tire. :icon_smile_big: Isaac..my riding buddy left his weights on when he added beads ..didn't seem to make any difference ..have yet to ride my bike ..will insure next week after the winter hibernation and let yea know
Wow Chop....that is stone age stuff. Sorry about that for sure. Do you have a Cycle Gear Store anywhere near you? If so, they can and do balance. :whack: IsaacMy local Powersport Honda Dealer " spin " balance the tires. Which means the mechanic grabs the tire by the hand while it is on the spin axle and gets that thing turning. He's lucky to make it to a 25 mph roll. There is no balance machine here like we see at NTW.I suppose it is one step above a bubble balance.
I think they work because most of us who use them believe they do something positive. You can watch promo videos on Dyna - Beads and Centramatics and come away with a positive felling or a skeptical one. For myself and the Dyna-Beads it is a monkey see - monkey do , if truth be told. My dealer also calls them " snake oil " and we laugh together on this, but I still use them.Could one of you experts explain how each of these balancers work? My tire guy thinks they are a waste of money.
