DYNAMIC TYRE BALANCING
- Increase tyre life.
- Eliminate tyre vibration.
- No weights to corrode or damage expensive rims.
- No rebalancing required.
- Re-usable, won’t grind down.
Just wanted to follow up my experience of Dynabeads on my Honda Pan European ST1100.
I fitted them when replacing the tyres that came with the bike when I bought it. As I fit my own tyres and do my own balancing anything that makes this easier is a bonus. I found installing the beads very easy via the valve stem using the applicator supplied. Once installed they really are a fit and forget item!
The ride was smooth from the outset and the tyres not only wore more evenly, the life was extended. I was always very fussy about tyre balancing and using traditional weights had experienced some uneven wear. Using Dynabeads the biggest difference was the ride was so smooth throughout the speed range, the extra mileage was also a great bonus! Members of a forum I frequent have also reported how easy it is to install the beads, making the choice to fit their own tyres so much easier!
With regard to roadside punctures and their effect on the beads, I had two punctures and used wiggly worm repairs with extra glue to seal the repair. After allowing time for the repair glue to set, around 5-10 minutes the beads were just as effective in maintaining a smooth ride for the remaining life of the tyre. On removing the tyres at the end of their life I use a vacuum cleaner to suck out the beads after breaking one tyre bead, this allowed me to recycle the beads at least twice.
I wholeheartedly recommend Dynabeads for use in motorcycle tyres, even if you don't fit your own, in my experience they definitely provide a smoother ride and improve tyre mileage.
