Hey Guys,

Has anyone tried Dyna Beads for balancing your tires? if so, what's your verdict on them?

I haven't used them MYSELF on my GWing, but I run a small time motorcycle tire shop in my garage and I've installed beads on many tires. As far as the Goldwing goes, the two GL1800's I've used the beads on have pleased their owners very much. Of special note would be the apparent cure of the cupping normally associated with the front tire.
General consensus from all my clients, sport bikes, cruisers, even Harley riders, is that they love the beads. They absolutely do not notice any imbalance one might fear from stopping the bike and having all the beads settle to the bottom.

I have Dyna Beads in Avon Venom tires. I highly recommend them. Excellent product.

They are the way to keep your wheels balanced, I run them front and rear and in the tent trailer too. Try them for yourself ,you wont be disappointed 8-)

I use them front and rear and assure you they are worth the small amount they cost.

I have them in all three of my motorcycles. I've put them in the tires of two other motorcycles for riding partners, all with the same results. Perfect balance throughout the life of the tire tread.

I have them in all my road going vehicles (Motobikes (3), cars (2), RV (1) and boat trailer.. I would run them in my dirt bikes, but I change the tyres too often and don't go fast enough to worry about the wheels being balanced!! They are easy to install and seem to work great..

I have been using them for 5 years now. At my shop put them in every tire I install and inflate them with Nitrogen. In 400+ bikes i have only gotten positive feedback, and I have never had a repeat customer not want my to do the same thing to their new tires. Have 32k on the front tire of my Harley bagger and still not down to the wear bars. No cupping at all.
