We were skeptical at first, but after extensive use, we're believers: Dyna Beads are a fast, easy, and inexpensive way to perfectly balance your motorcycle wheels without spoke or rim weights. Tested at over 150 mph, the high-density ceramic beads will distribute themselves as needed while you ride, dynamically balancing your wheels for a smooooooth ride that eliminates cupping and vibration.
Installation requires deflating your tire and removing the valve core. Using the included applicator bottle, one or two ounces of Dyna Beads (depending on tire size) are poured into the valve stem (see chart below). Then you reinstall the valve core and inflate your tire. On the very remote chance a bead might "hide" behind the valve core seat, we recommend checking your tire pressure with a squirt of pressurized air, which would clear a stuck bead.
Kit includes three 1oz. bags of Dyna Beads and an applicator bottle. Most motorcycles will require one ounce of Dyna Beads for the front tire and two ounces for the rear tire. (BMWs with Telelever suspensions need two ounces for the front tire as well as the rear.) Extra beads are available in 1oz. quantities.
