Ordered a set of BT023s

Ordered a set of BT023s



Now lets talk balancing. Any true life experiences, good or bad, with either of these?

Dyna Beads for Motorcycle Riders and Dealers

or

Motorcycle Tire Sealant | Scooters Tire Sealant | Motorcycle Formula (MOT) - Ride-On

or ?

I do know that the beads are WAY cheaper, but beyond that I have no experience with either...

If it ain't broke, keep fixing it 'till it is...

Why not balance the with weights? It cost me $25 a tire to have a shop take off the old tires, throw them away, put on new ones and balance them.

If its for money reasons, check out you tube on how to balance a motorcycle tire. Its pretty easy to do, it just takes time.

I wonder how the tires feel before they are up to speed enough to balance the dyna beads

Ive been using dyna beads for a couple years now. I'd never go back to weights for a few reasons.

1. I can change and balance my own tires
2. As the tire wears out, it's still balanced
3. I'm cheap and save money
4. I don't trust anyone working on my bike
5. No glue residue from old weights or marked up rims

Give them a try, I think you'll like them.

Interesting note re balance near the end of a tyres life. New time I'm having one changed I'll have the old one spun up on the balance machine first and see if it is out.


I take the wheels off the bike and have the tyre dude change tyres and balance the wheels with those self adhesive lead weights. Then I go home and paint the grey lead black to match the wheel.

I have issues .........

Exactly! Dyna beads and spoons are the way to go.

I did a friends sv650 track bike with a heavily gouged rear rim and a minor bend in the front. Dyna beads made it good as new, smooth as butter at any speed now.

Thumbs up Ride-On is Good Stuff

I've never tried Dyna Beads in my personal bike, but I do knot that they work. Keep in mind that they can spill out everywhere when you take the old tire off.

I've had Ride-On in my tires since last August with no wheel weights. I actually made a video when I installed it, testing the bike with weights, without weights, and with ride-on. Then we did a puncture test on my old rear tire. After making this video I was sold on the product, and put it in my new rear. It's good stuff, plus it will seal up a puncture if it happens in the center of the tire.

Ride-On Tire Sealant = Indestructible Tires! (almost...) - YouTube

FYI, after I did the burnout we changed out the rear tire. Admittedly there was a bit of a mess with the ride-on and rubber bits all over the rim. But literally 2 minutes with a wet rag and the wheel was perfectly clean again. Plus I think if you don't do a big burnout before you chance the tire you'll probably be fine Ride-on is different from other sealants, it's more like a gel that won't separate after all that spinning. I've ridden with it on 100+ degree days and into the low 20's. Also took the bike to the track (Road Atlanta), hitting 140+mph. Never once felt a sensation that my wheels were out of balance.
