Ride on® Tire sealant/balancer stuff

Has anyone used this product with success in balancing your wheels? Or should I just take both the wheels off, take them to a shop, drop them off then return later to pick them up so I can reinstall them? If this stuff works, it'd save me time.

I use Ride On in my dirt bike tires, it seems to work well. For the 919 I use Dynabeads which work very well. I wouldn't want to have to clean Ride On off of the rim with every tire change.

If you are willing to go to the trouble of pulling the wheels off and taking them to a dealership, why not balance them yourself? It's gravity, man. Not rocket science. Pulling the wheels off and putting them back on is a hell of a lot harder than the actual balance.

And no, l don't like putting crap in my tires.

That's just it, I don't want to pull them off. Maybe I am a little lazy, I don't like putting carp in my tires either, but I just painted these wheels (2 months ago) and don't want to put weights on them, but it may come to that? But I will check out the stuff the previous member used in their 9er.

Thanks for your reply! ?

Dynabeads are for you! Dump them in through the valve stem.

Oh, l got cha Casing. I hate taking wheels off of any bike. I am very careful, but still, occationally, l scratch or ding the paint. Thw Wheels on a motorcycle lead a tough life.

I use the stick on wheel weights. You could paint those, and they wouldn't look bad.

Or hold your nose, look the other way, and do the dyna beads.
