Dyna Beads

Postby Neilnwks » Tue May 28, 2013 7:45 pm



I ordered beads along with the front tire for my 1100 but this is my concern. All air compressors put some amount of water in the tire depending on the filter system. Will this moisture have any affect on the beads.

Does not seem to have affected mine in any way. My wheels and tires run slick as silk, even after sitting for the winter.

I always wondered about this as well, but I've filled my tires many times, never had a problem.

I have a dryer on my compressor, but have used the beads for the past 3 years with no complaints.

I have dismounted a few tires in my time and have never found any moisture in the tires.

The balls are ceramic, so they would not absorb water and I have rarely seen water condense inside a tyre and cause beads or anything else to stick together. Seems to be a non issue although it could happen..

I run beads in all my cars & trucks also, the water that the compressor puts in evaporates, that is why you never see it when you break a tire down.ok, you ask ----how does it do that???---the rubber in the tire ---gets hot---and water evaporates, see, ---GOD BLESS---

Sorry to tell you the water doesn't evaporate and go away in a tire. Put some water in a container and heat it, freeze it, spin it around, let it set for a few years and it will still be there. Tires are sealed like that container so unless you leave it open it won't go away.

Would like to suggest an alternative to the Dyna Beads with an added benefit!
http://www.ride-on.com/
Not only maintains tire/wheel balance, also offers puncture protection! Peruse the whole web sight. You may consider using this product on more than than just your motorcycle.
Please note: this product is not to be used if you have the Honda TPMS on your Wing! Honda decided to save a penny by not "protecting" the sensors in the wheels so, no RideOn in these wheels for the time being!

All this talk about DYNA BEADS got me to wondering if COUNTERACT beads are basicly the same thing. The COUNTERACT are coated glass beads and I understand that DYNA BEADS are ceramic. Is there any advantage of one over the other?

I searched but couldn't find any info on if it reacts with the aluminum wheels. Priced about the same as dyna-beads. I do know that regular tire sealer leaves a mess inside the tire and the rim that is a P.I.T.A. to clean up. I wonder is the "gel" is better?

They are pretty much the same thing - or at least DO the same thing. They are different composition, but I would imagine one is as effective as the other.

I'm running them in my tires for the first time and I can only say, what a difference. Smooth and easy to install. I need to by new tires for my truck later in the summer, and I'm going to run them in that as well.

The product is water soluble and does not "attack" aluminum wheels. This is not Slime and does not leave a mess!
If one would watch the videos and look a the pics of the inside of the tires you would see how it distributes around the inside of the tire. So far, for me, there is no clean up! If you follow the install instructions, all you should have to do when you change tires is just change tires! The RideOn is a non-issue!

I have read elsewhere that one should avoid glass beads. It appears as though they are not as hard as the ceramic and there have been claims that they can "break". This of course is NOT a personal opinion, just what I have read.
