I have used them for years in my Electra-Glide and think they are great. No weights on the rims and they constantly correct themself as the tire wears. I never had a shimmy and had even tire wear. When I get my first Goldwing and have to put new tires on I will use them unless I have TPM then they might not work.

Dyna Beads will work just fine with the tpm, a buddy of mine is useing them on his 2010 goldwing.
I plan on useing them on my 2000 when I get new tires.

I've had them in my bike since April of this year, when I put new tires on. I have to say, they make the ride incredibly smooth and vibration-free. I wasn't 100% convinced when I first put them in, and figured if I didn't like them I'd just take them out and go back to wheel weights...but I am definitely a convert. I'm thinking that I'm going to pull the weights off my truck wheels and put them into my truck tires to see if they will help.

I wrote this when I put them in: How to install Dyna Beads in your tires

My wing 45 days old tires are new.Do think i can add beads now i like the idea of saving tire wear and not having to worry about balancing.

Absolutely. Take the wheel weights off, add the beads, and you'll be good to go.

I just informed by a dyna bead dealer on the newer wings with TPM, you have to remove the wheels and break the tire in order to get the beads in. They will not go threw the tpm scrhrader valve. Once you get them in they will work fine and not bother the tpm system.

Interesting, I had not heard that, but then I haven't seen one of the TPMS valves on on 1800 except in pictures.

You could do it without removing the wheels - just let the air out of the tire, use a C-clamp and a couple pieces of wood to break the bead on the tires, pour the dyna-beads in, then re-seat the tire bead and fill it back up with air. You'd likely want the bike on a lift to do it, but certainly preferable to disassembling the bike to remove the wheels.

Thats what i was thinking jack up the bike and break the beads on the tires. Never changed a tire on a bike rim, but your c clamp and some wood sounds like the way to go. Will it be hard to reseat the tires what tools would i need for that.
Taking the rear tire off the new wings is not a hard deal. Seen a guy on utube do it laying the bike on its side. But i like your method better will try it after christmas.

Thanks
Merry Christmas

You only need to break the bead on one side (make sure you let the air out first!) to get the beads in.

To reseat the bead, you position the tire bead near the edge of the tire, then give it a good blast of air in the tire valve to push the bead out to the edge. If you break the bead in a small area only it should be pretty easy to do.

I've always removed the valve core of the schraeder valve on the tire to reduce the restriction in order to reseat the bead, I don't know of the TPMS valve cores allow you to do that or not.

this is from the Dyna Beads wed site.

Can I use your product with my Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)?

All TPMS sensors that thread onto the valve stem, such as the Pressure Pro, will require a valve stem that accepts our filtered valve core.

Note: If your wheels have a TPMS system that is an integral part of the valve stem, Dyna Beads will not cause any problems, but you must install the beads directly into the tire. (not with an Applicator)

I can't say yea or nay as I've never tried them. What I can say is the car tire on my VTX has no weights on it and when I had the tires put on my 93SE they balanced on the money with NO weights at all. I have my tires installed on the wheel and the balance is included with the price. I believe this topic might be similar to an oil discussion or the fastest color. ;)

The one advantage the beads have over the tire weights, is that they dynamically balance as the wheel wears. When the wheel weights are put on, the wheel is balanced correctly (as long as the kid putting them on wasn't hung over that day) for right then, with a new tire. As soon as the tire starts to wear from everyday use, the wheel can start to move out of balance.

With the Dyna Beads, as the wheel wears, they simply reposition themselves to account for it, keeping it perfectly balanced regardless.
