Tire Balance

Post by volvot5 » Wed Sep 12, 2012 8:01 pm

I have known since i got my GL1100I that the wheels were out of balance. Instead of taking them off and getting them so called balanced again I found the CounterAct Balancing beads. I bought the kit for 28.00 and put them in my tires as specified. Vibration gone... nice and smooth now. Well worth the money.

They're almost identical to Dyna Beads, and work exactly the same way. I've been using them for years now, they work great!

The best balance is a dynamic balance and that is what the beads do. Oh what a difference!


If you aren't having fun doing it, find something else to do.
