I have some very nice chrome wheels and am not sticking ugly lead weights on them! These beads are awesome and can't be seen.
The beads helped on my dual sport Husqvarna 501 but the install process took about 30 minutes per tire. This product definitely helped in the 50MPH to 65MPH range. At top end I still experience some bounce at about 82. I used the suggested amount for tires with bead locks (2 oz. front, 3 oz rear).
Seems to work great.
No need for a balance stand and weights that could fall off. I've been using these beads for years, perfect balance and long tire wear.
Don't waste your time or your money they don't work. Just check out the you tube videos and you'll see why
BUT, don't think that you're going to be able to install the beads through a 90° valve stem! It's not going to happen!
I tried to use the tube to put the beads in the tire through the valve stem. But I had put a 90° stem on the wheel and the balance beads would not flow through that stem.
So I, wound up breaking the tire bead and pouring the balance beads directly into the tire.
Once installed the product works great!
great product have used these for years with no problems. best ride, longer tire life, easy install. speed up the install by using an engraving tool resting on the valve stem, or any other tool you might have that gives off vibrations while its running, and let the beads go slowly into the hoses and valve stem
great parts and fast service. I will put the beads in my other bike also.
These beads are the way to go, hands down. Forget about those stupid sticky weights.
Cheaper than paying somebody to balance them for you with weights that you can see on your rim this product is easy to use and you wouldn't even know that there there no ugly weight to look at
