Clegg,
I was going to point out that those aren't dynabeads.... but then I clicked your link.
That's priceless! Thanks for posting it

I get all of my exhaust bearings from Kaleco, and their synthetic blinker fluid is simply the best you can buy!

As for Dynabeads, there is simply no better product for bead-blasting the inside of your rims without removing them.

Cheers,

I was curious about that myself Maybe 2oz of Ceramic bead is heavier than 5oz of Lead (Newton just face palmed)

But... but... they are magic beads. All you need to do is believe.

Edit: I joke, but I had new tires but on today and asked them about Dyna Beads out of curiosity. They said "Nope, we don't ever use them, they make a real F'ing mess out of the inside of the tire.

They DO work and work well! I don't believe that they "bead blast the rim... since they rely on centrifugal force to hold themselves to the tire where they need to be.

When I ran BIG Jeeps (35" to 42" tires) we used golf balls to balance the tires, and YES that worked too!

I just put 2 brand new Pirellis on my Sprint about 100 miles ago. I had forgotten my Dyne beads that day. I changed both front and rear tires by myself with tire spoons. I was worried about the ride home "unbalanced" ... I had never ridden a street bike with unbalanced tires before , (probably very few of you have either), I had a slight vibration around 55 , they only odd thing I noticed was it seemed to be pulling to the left.
They next day I again went to work early , pulled the wheels , broke the tire down on one side, put the Dyne beads in. Ran up to 55 again not vibes , all the way to 100+ no vibes , and no pulling to the left.
I'm not getting into the quality of some shops balancing procedures and precision.

My .02$ ! Thanks to all!

I've installed the Dyna-Beads in both my front and rear tires and they run smooth as silk. I like 'em.

YEP ....... Only the guys who have not tried them are the ones that don't like Dyna Beads. Oh ya and the tire shop does not like them either if you don't warn them the beads are in the tire, they scatter like mercury droped on concrete and are a slipping hazard.

Not so. There are also negative reports regarding their effectiveness. True, there are many positive reports, even to the point of being very similar to each other.

Myself, I've been thinking of trying some when I order my new auto-inflate tires.
