Wheel Balancing Beads?

Hi All,

I found a old thread (2013) here about Dynabeads... a couple of guys i know run them in their bikes (GSXR1000 and an F4750SR) and swear by them, noting they have had no issues and have been easy to transfer to a new set of tyres (no dust or anything).

I just wondered if anyone has had any further dealings with them or used them since and would like to share their experience?

Thanks!

Cheers, Simon

One of my friends had them in his tires and went to the track. After a few laps he started to have serious vibration issues on the straights. Pulled the tires off and the beads had melted. I don't know if that was a fluke or not. I haven't heard of anyone else having issues with them. Just seems to me that a good old fashion wheel balancing would be more precise and reliable but if you don't have access then...

Ceramic beads melted? I doubt it. Those must not have been Dynabeads

Ive been using dynabeads for about 4 years now, and 4 sets of tyres on my Harley V-Rod. It has matt black wheels and a load of silver weights stood out so thought I would try the beads. They work great, really smooth ride, no issues at all. My garage keep them in stock and a few other customers use them

Havnt been through tyres yet on the MV....

cheers

I might give them a go. I have read alot about dynabeads (which are ceramic, not plastic) and everyone that runs then (including trackday people) say they are good and work as expected, where as the only people that seem to be hesitant are people that havent used them? No offence to those people mind you, its just an observation. E.g. i havn't heard people say 'i used them once and would never use them again' (im talking about the specific dynabeads branded stuff).

Hell - its only $10 or something. If they dont work, take them out and..

Yes...I'm thinking they were not. Like I said, hadn't heard of anyone else with issues.
