WingAdmin. uses these and many members as well, I use stickon weights and do it myself, but they all seem to like how it works, I'll enjoy reading about them again when they chime in on the subject again...

I swear by them in my M109R. They are the cat's meow!

Have a read through both pages of this topic: How to install Dyna Beads in your tires

I now have them in my bike (two riding seasons now) and also in my truck.

I cant say they make the tires last any longer but they do allow me to change my own tires and balance them with little to no effort . 4oz of beads cost me $12, but I saved way more than that by not having the dealer/shop mount my tires.

Both the Dunlop & Avon tires cupped like mad - especially the back tire on my 1500. Installed the DynaBeads and all but eliminated the cupping. Love them! I'm on my 3rd set of tires with them in my tires. I guess what seems to make the tires last longer is that they no longer have to be replaced because of the cupping.

Hey,,, My wife's an Aggie too...86 or 87 don't recall I bet she remembers :shock: :shock: So if I purchase some avon's and use the dyna beads I'm good you say...Well that sounds good to me, now if they only would produce a tire with raised white letters for my 81 I'll be happy...

On which bike the 1500 or the 1000? What brand tire do you run on? those results are outstanding, If you tell me you are darksiding it, I swear that's cheating..

OK --I'm gonna post this and let you decide----if you have a big truck supply store in your area----they have balancing beeds in 12 oz packs for 16 bucks--I get mine at covington truck supply in Opelika Al. I have them in my 98 Valkyrie and they are GREAT , I'm gonna put them in my chev pickup as soon as I get time. also I run a car tire on the rear --and love it also--I have not seen any FLAMING DEATH scenes yet ---that was caused by a car tire on a scooter-GOD BLESS--Bogator--- :lol:

I am also looking at Dyna-Beads, but have heard that they are a little noisy at slow speeds and start up. Would appreciate a comment on this from somebody who is using them on their Goldwing.

I have had them in my GL1100 as well as my Ford Explorer for a couple years now. The only time I have ever been able to hear them is when I had my bike on the centerstand, and I was right down next to the rear tire, rotating it slowly by hand. They make virtually no noise - you would never hear them with the engine running.

I've been running them in my M109R for years. I've never been able to hear them.

Imagine putting a handful of sand in your tire. Do you think you would hear that? (No...)

Thanks for the comments on the noise or lack of, the Dyna-Beads make. That is encouraging, and I intend to try them when I change tires.

Don't know about others, but I am very happy with them. Don't know if they add life to the tire but they add life to rides!

I had Dyna Beads installed on my 06 WING a couple months ago. Been on a1000 mile trip, many 200 milers and tons of 100 milers or less. I must say I was sceptical at first. The sales demo video was very compelling. I put 2 oz in front and 3 oz in rear. I immediately noticed the tires were very quiet and smooth. No vibration at the handlebar. Absolutely none. Smoothest ride I have had EVER!!!
Can't say enough about them. Can't see me running without them in the future. Will update again in 6 months. :D

I have had beads in my 05 1800 with Bridgestones and also in my GMC pick up Hankook tires for over a year now and I will never use wheel weights again. My wing has never rode so smooth. Took a 3600 mile road trip last spring and the ride was smooth as silk. No evidence of tire cupping to date. My GMC pick-up rides very smooth as well. I am completly sold on Dyna Beads.
