Easy to assemble, it will function for many motorcycles. I have 7 different bikes from all diferent manufactures and it works for all of them. I specificaly purchased it for my Buells. I had new tires installed on my rims at a motorcycle shop. The shop tech told me they never balance tires and it isn't necessary. That information made me purchase this product. Now I have a great riding set of new tires.

My husband is so happy with his wheel balancer.
It got the job done
This is a well built and nicely made balancer.
Well made, sturdy should last me for longer than I'm going to be lacing wheels. Price was right.
I have never bought rims, hubs and spokes to lace new wheels. This product gave me the piece of mind that my wheels are working properly.
I have not balanced any tires yet but i just put this thing together and man is it high quality. very heavy and seems like it will last forever. Defiantly a good investment.
This is one of those purchases that will pay for its self the first time or 2 that you use it. Sturdy, heavy duty, great finish on it. The only thing that I would note is that using a dial indicator with a magnetic base would save alot of time and guesswork
I've only recently decided to start lacing my own wheels, so I can't say I've got a lot of experience with truing stands. That said, this stand is heavy-duty, holding my MX wheels securely while working.
I did have an issue with the adjustable bar seen attached to the right side of the stand in the photo. It's designed to slide both vertically and horizontally in order for the tip to be placed close to the rim (for measuring runout). Unfortunately, the horizontal adjustment has so much slop in it that I was unable to get the bar close to the rim. I ended up using a pencil in place of the supplied bar, and that worked surprisingly well.
That should help explain the process of finding the proper weights to balance your wheel/tire.
-It comes with shaft, cones and spacers to fit just about any wheel.
-Fits wheel widths from 30 cm to 54 cm.
