My oh my.....did you utilize the wonderful Google search box function? :wink2:There's a lot of information from guys on this site who've used them, both pro and con.
This is a lot cheaper and seems to work fine, just use the same weight as you would with official beads.
I have changed and worn out scores of motorcycle tires. I have balancing equipment. Don't use it very often, usually just to check the rim ( without tire ) is in balance and often the factory weights that are on the bike seem to do just that.
On every tire that I have not balanced, I have had no vibrations, no abnormal wear, or any other problems. So, if that is the case, how can anyone say that beads or goo in the tire helps?
Should I ever get a tire that feels wrong, I will be very suspicious that there is a problem internally and it will likely come off.
Tires are so much better quality than they were year ago that I don't think there is enough weight imbalance in them to matter. I do put the painted dots ( when they are present ) at the valve stem. I have tried 1/4 and 1/2 oz weights on the bike at random spots and really cannot tell they make any difference at any speed. I imagine 1 oz would. On every tire that I have checked balance on after mounting, I have yet to find one that needed 1/2 oz to be spot on.
Ditto.I used Dyna Beads on several bikes. They work despite people who claim they don't.
Saying that I quit using them and switched to Ride-On sealant and balancer. It works too.
I got to thinking about the Dyna Beads and string type tire plugs. Seems to me that the beads would form a big clump on the repair. Never plugged a tire with the beads so no actual data to back that up.
The Ride-On stuff says that you can use a string repair which is good because the sealant only covers about a 1.5" down the very middle of the tire!
Are you certain you have the correct amount in there I regularly do over 80 and it smooth as glass every ride.I have Dyna Beads in teh front tire of my GL1500. Once I hit 80, there is a wobble. So, I stay below 80. Never had it happen before and I will not use beads again.
I have them in the 4 VERY heavy tires on my 5th wheel RV.
A person on a motorcycle RVer group swears by Counteract.
No they won't fit in the valve stem. The tire bead has to be broken as when changing tires. I've only used them when putting on new tires.Will those fit through a valve stem? It seems that they would be too big. How would you get them into the tire?
