Funny you should mention that, my chrome wheels got balanced from the Honda dealer.. One would think they have only the best quality components... NOT.. they stuck these dull lead sticky weights on..

I have found some made for Chrome Wheels...
1/4 oz. Chrome Quickstick Wheel Weights..

Not too sure about those dyna beads.. anyone used them before...?

Het T,

Remember the two guys I came down with from SLO. Ted was on the VTX. He haas been running the beads for over 21K and swears by them. He states he will never have wheel weights again.

Ok, so I read up on these things.. You install them by removing the valve stem and just pour them in..
Now I see the math they came up with for the diameter time..

Now looking at the weights stuck on my front wheel..
I see 1 oz of weight on each side of the wheel.

So 1 oz of these beads will work?

I put Dyna Beads in my VTX last year and am very happy with them, there are a couple of tricks to installing them. ! is to use a engraving tool or other vibrating device to rattle the tube to get them in, another is to use a longer piece of tubing, fill it about 1/2 full and use an air nozzle on your compressor to GENTLY blow them in, doesn't take much air.

When the shop installed my RC wheels they actually installed the weights INSIDE the wheel so there are none at all showing. Don't ask me how but they are perfectly balanced.

Thanks for the info. Talked to one of the distributors, they also build custom bikes said it's way to go. Looks like i'll be buying some.

Have to try these beads now... Still, i'm @ 9,000 miles and my tires are going good (stock) so it will probably be another 5-10k before I check these out, thanks for the info though on these! Probably have my rims chromed by then...

Consumer motorcycle news says they suck?

Read a lot of positive reviews from individual riders about the dynabeads, so ordered the motorcycle pack and dropped off at the dealer today for when my wheels come back from chromer in a couple weeks; chief mechanic took one look and said they were a waste of time and money and cited a 2006 CMN review that said they tested them and they didn't work. This if true is a real disappointment, since I don't care for stickum wheelweights on nice set of expensive chromed rims ..

Is it a given that your stock rims when returned from chromer WILL need weights or balancing of some kind?

Anyone seen or know of any dynabead reviews by any consumer pub *since* CMN's negative review back in '06?

I googled dynabeads even more extensively after the wrench advised they weren't worth it, and it's damn hard to believe that so many positive reviews by so damn many user's are ALL just wrong ... I gotta question whether CMN's review is the lone incorrect dissenter or not ...?

You know what they say about one man's opinion... it's not worth it's weight of s&^%%$ if he can't back it up... what is his experience with it, and where is this opinion coming from... What has he done or seen to prove the otherwise... Proof is in the pudding?... Also, somebody collaborating his story is also nice... So hopefully you get that too, without them being butt buddies.

I am not defending this product, nor endorsing it (I want facts and real numbers!)... I am just saying that I've known too many idiots that base their "factual" opinion on their personal beliefs... question him like you're a CSI agent and report back to us soldier... :D I'd like to get this product too & have read the good stories as well, so... question him away... Just cause CMN says negative things about it... read up on it and let us know if they were biased at all....

Good deal. I'll be installing them also, since the only and 2nd best alternative I know of is the little chrome quickstick weights, which I'll only go to as a last resort. My wheels are still two weeks away though, give or take, so it'll be awhile before I can report results, so I'll keep an eye out for your feedback before then.

I got the same when I researched them. I was looking for bad reviews.
I had previous ordered chrome wheel weights since the Honda dealer installed theses dull lead stick on weights when they mounted and balanced my rim's.

So I have both, the dyna beads has a centrifugal logic working for them. I reviewed how they worked, they make too much since on the dynamics of them.
If I can remove the ugly weights off the wheels and they provide balance I'm for them.

I guess the proof is in the puddin'.
I purchased the motorcycle kit, 1 oz in the front and 2 oz in the rear.
I will let everyone know if there is a ride difference or not.
