I used them on 1200 and what a difference. It always road smooth. I would like to use them 1500 but with the 90 degree valve stems I am not sure how I would get them in.

If you are mounting the tire, before you set the bead, just take them out of the bag and put them in the tire. If the tire is on the bike that is different. I have used the beads in my last 2 front and 2 rear tires and they are great.

I have been using Dyna beads in 3 different motorcycles (2 gl500 & 1 VTX 1300R) for more than 5 years. Completely satisfied, smooth ride no tire cupping. I mount and change my own tires/wheels. I use the 90 degree chrome screw on valve stems with 2oz of beads in the front & 3oz of beads in the rear.

I went to my local shop with my old tires and rims. He mounted my new Kenda Cruz and put the beads in at the same time. I just had it done but found the ride to be smooth and quiet. Only miles will tell how they do but I am optimistic they will extend the tire life.

Yep, broken search bar. You have to use the advanced search to not get the 404 error.

Can you get the Dyna Beads in the tire with the 90 degree valve stems?

Yes you can. Just take your time and be patient and they will go right in like with a straight stem. Make their entry as down hill as you can. :)

I just (this week) did my first REAL (done a dirt bike years ago) motorcycle tire and used balancing beads (from another manufacturer). I have 90 degree valve stems and found that tilting the tire at 45 degrees or so puts both legs of the 90 degree stem in a better position to make the beads go in easily.

Also, when I got a pile up in the stem, a short burst of air would knock them in. Trickle them as best you can and you will minimize the number of pile ups in the tube you use to get them into the stem.

I used to use vibration and coercion to get them in my 45 degree stems, but no longer: I now just put a long vinyl tube on the valve stem, pour the beads into the tube, then hit it with a quick shot of compressed air, and they shoot right into the tire in an instant.

I'm going to try that method. Sounds good

Thanks
