Dyna Beads

Postby Senkoguy1 » Fri Dec 27, 2013 11:51 am



I still have a wobble on my 86 1200 and I put new tires on just before I put it away for the winter. I did the work myself and did not have the wheels balanced because I'm leaning towards Dyna Beads as the advertising has me convinced it's the way to go. I say that because as a tire wears, I think the balance of the tire changes (causing wobble and cupping) and I'm assuming Dyna beads will adjust as the tire wears. Do they adjust every time you get up to speed or do they adjust first time and stay in place for the life of the tire? Feel free to chine in with your experience.

Dyna beads run loose in the tire and adjust every time you move. They are actually in constant adjustment as the tire rotates. Pick up a rock that stays in the tread and the beads adjust for it.

I use them. Wouldn't have it any other way.

I hadn't gotten more than about 11k out of a front tire without being badly cupped until I started using them. My current tire has over 18k and there is no evidence of cupping. The only reason I'm changing it is because it's been on for two years and the middle of the tread is wearing a bit thin because I run my tires overinflated. In my opinion, they are well worth the money. Make sure your wobble is due to balance and not an out of round condition- or worse, a bent wheel.

Can the beads be used in tube tires?

Yes, the manufacturer says they work equally as well in tubed and tubeless tires. My wife's 250 Virago has tubed tires, and they have had Dyna Beads in them for as long as we've had the bike.

I've used both Dyna beads and Ride on,not in the same tire, and both work very well.

I have been using them for 4 years and have put 40,000 miles on. not all those miles on one set of tires but I have gotten a lot of miles on before replacing the tires , I currently have Dunlop Elite 3 tires on the bike. I will check my records and post how many miles I had on my tires before the last change. See ya on the Road

If Dyna beads and Ride on both work equally well for balancing, wouldn't Ride on be better because of the sealing properties?

Many places will not change tires with Ride On in them (or charge you extra) because it makes a huge mess on the tire changing equipment when the tire is demounted, and the rim has to be cleaned extensively before the new tire is installed.
