I have used them and they work great. But you should not have to use them on a new bike. it should be balanced at the factory

When I put the beads in I used a idea I picked up on the VTXOA boad, used a longer piece of clear tubing, and when the beads stopped flowing into the valve I hit it with air from my compressor (lightly) and blew them in, put in a few beads, some air, a few more beads more air, didn't want to blow them all over the shop as they would be very hard to find and pick back up.

Well I got the beads in today and about 150 mile... I have to admit they did cut back on some [not all] of the fine vibration in the bike. My right hand did not numb out on me once during the ride and my left mirror seemed more clear when cruising.

I think the instructions said to remove the tire weights.... I left them on... should I remove them? I would hate for it to go all out of wack.

Not a miracle cure, but indeed noticeable.

Once in a while you will find a tire/wheel, that do not need any weight added, I did a Goldwing the other day I took off 20 (grams) from the old tire and the new one did not need any, I had to check it 3 times to make sure. If you are not feeling any vibrations i would not worry.

Remove them, if your worried, put a small piece of tape to mark where they are (in case you have to put them back on, I am sure you won't), pop them off, go for a test ride, you do not need the weights and the beads. I can usually pull them off by hand, but be careful that you don't scratch the wheel.

I haven no weights on mine at all and I haven't noticed any vibration at higher speeds. I do noticed the mirrors shake a lot, but that can partly be attributed to wind.

It seems to me the vibrations are all comming from the motor, at 65mph I pulled in the clutch so nothing to feel but the road and it was smooth as silk. The vibrations that put my hands and but to sleep come from the motor- why is that -motor mounts? counter weight crank shaft off?- what ever it is if we can figure out fix the fury would be perfect

tire balancing and mirror vibration

i use the no-mar tire changer and balancer,you do know they make colored weights ---so as to hide the weights some,and as far as mirror vibration,i'm thinking of weighting the end of the handle bar--simular to what they do to quads to see if that works on dampering the vibration---------

Balance for safety and bearing life!!

You need to keep rim/wheel balanced because you dont want to wear out the hubs/bearings. the balance keeps the hub from over heating and frying the bearings not to mention disc/calipers. Any machined pieces get a small wobble because to machine a balanced piece of steel is a tall task and way to expensive unless your in CHINA!!!

Hence the need for balance/nothing is perfect square or round... Also your risking a HIGH SPEED WOOBLE THAT WILL SCARE THE HELL OUT OF YOU and possible death!!! The wooble I lived thru started at 65mph and I fought it like hell to not crash this happened on a older yamaha seca!!!
