first let me start off by saying thanks to wingadmin for the topic of how to remove the rear tire from a 82 gl 1100. most excellent topic and very easy to follow directions thanks again.

question of the day is ....has anyone ever Not had to install wheel weights to have the wheel balanced? i lubed up the axel and put it in the tire , set it up on a level stand and started to check for balance, no matter where i rotated the wheel it stopped and did not show me that i have a heavy spot the wheel stayed wherever i placed it. the bearing is moving free and is in great shape. im just not sure if i should put it on the bike yet without taking it in to get the balance checked. to me it seems fine but not sure

sounds to me the tire is balanced-what I would do is put in dyna beads,and call it good-I use dyna beads on all my tires-have had no problem at all-work great. :arrow: :D

I second that motion, no tire and rim is perfect so invest in dyna beads or now there is a similar product that works a little better, but anyway it will be worth your tire tread to use a self balancing style of weights. Ride safe.

Another vote for Dyna Beads. I tried them first in my GL1100, and have used them in every vehicle since. They work great!
