I currently use dyna beads on my other bikes. Got a new spyder and wanted to try glass beads to see if there is any difference. Plus this kit is ready made for a spyder.

Don’t like weights
Jose G on Oct 12, 2018
Bead balancing is much better than weights. You do not have to worry about weights falling off and your tires rebalance as soon as you start rolling. So as tires wear they stay balanced always love them.

Makes for a smoother ride.
Davie C on Aug 20, 2018
I did a lot of research on these balancing beads and found that they are truly universal as long as you have all the necessary tools which are provided in this kit! All you need to do is confirm the weight option for the beads in regards to your specific wheel specs which can be viewed on counteract website with the helpful chart.
Derrick W on Aug 20, 2018

Love this product. Never hammer a weight on my wheels again. Balance is perfect every time.
Glenn E on Aug 5, 2018
Have an auto shop but can't balance motorcycle tires. Have used these beads for years and they've performed better than a normal balence job because as the tire wears they adapt.
Kevin S on Jul 30, 2018
past experience . Product works great

Have used these for years better wear on the tires than standard weights. Plus no glue on your chrome rims...

I hate using the stick on weights with my wheels and this product is a continuous balance as the tire wears, increasing the life span/use of the tires.

Should all or any of the external wheel balancing weights be removed prior to using this product or does it matter?
Thank you
John on Apr 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! all external weights should be removed prior to installing the balancing beads. Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.
Is this still effective on a 35mph scooter? My new Honda Ruckus' have a noticeable shimmy/shake at speed.
Tim W on Oct 14, 2018

Can I order just more Caps and just more filtered valve cores?
Timothy P on Apr 24, 2018

is this product good for dirt bikes and if so what do they do? thanks for your service
Andy on Aug 14, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! This product can be used on dirtbikes but this is used for balancing tires for smoother ride. Unless on the street the ride of a dirtbike is usually pretty rough anyway so this may not give the results that it would on a street or dual sport machine. ATV's are offered this due to how many tires they have and how heavy they can be. Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.
What all is included? I couldn't find a list. Is it just the beads or?
Johnathan on Jan 7, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! Kit includes Selected # of bags, Applicator bottle with tube, Valve core remover, Valve caps and Valve cores. Please let us know if theres anything else we can assist you with.
will these work with a 120/80 14 dunlop SX01 tire

Very satisfied customer
I use these balance beads because of the quality of what they are made from. They're not made from plastic like most balance beads. They are made from a high grade safety glasses. Will not melt from friction.

Will never pay a shop to mount and balance again
I did the front tire on my bike myself and won't pay a shop to do one again. For tube installations, if you put the beads in the tube before you mount the tire, it makes it very easy. I did not have any of the problems people often bring up with getting the beads through the valve. I found shaking the valve vertically allowed me to fill 2 oz. in about 5 minutes.

The ride is perfectly smooth at all speeds.

Counteract balancing beads
First time using balance beads but will use again. They work great! Mounted two new tires and installed beads went for a ride and my bike has never felt so smooth. Before at 70 mph it would shake your teeth out even when my tires were new and balanced. Now it rides as smooth as glass. Easy to install but it takes a few minutes.

Counteract Tire Balancing Beads
Put these in a new set of Dunlop Elite 4's on my 2012 Goldwing. Don't feel they will interfere with the TPS sensors at all, but I guess time will tell. With new tires and these beads, my Wing rides as smooth as silk. I would definitely recommend using these in your next tire change.

Great product, simple soloution
I buy a kit each time I buy a new tire, these little things work great! I like to change my own tires but I don’t have a balancer. I put these in the tire and the ride is smooth as glass. They last as long as the tire. No weights to lose or ugly weights on your rims.

Easy to use, cheap to buy, common sense, works for all tubeless tires! Very universal don’t worry about a thing!
The very best way to balance your tires! Although you may have doubts you must go with this method! So simple and no need to sit there and spin your tires for heavy spot just pour the beads in the valve stem pop the cap back on and the rest is just basic physics! The science explains how the beads work ... GRAVITY! great product I used them on my 2000 Kawasaki ninja 500R and my bike no longer shakes or vibrates at high speeds or low.

Takes a while to install
This product seems to work as advertised. Could just get the tires balanced at a shop and break even on the cost.. it does take a while to install on a tubed tire but the technique works.
