Thumbs up Dyna Beads.....Awsome wheel balance

I recently replaced tires on my 06 Sprint and 11 Ninja 250. I bought a product from rockymountainatv.com called Dyna Beads and the bikes run so smooth. I pulled 5 oz of lead weight off the rear of the Ninja, installed 2 oz of the ceramic beads and smooth as silk!!! All the reviews are good and tire life is increased. I'm going to put them in my SAAB 93 to.

What does it do for fuel mileage?

You know, I've not read anything bad about those, apart from from people who haven't tried them. I'm a skeptic, but curious!

How can they improve tire life?
How do they improve fuel economy?

I used them on my Jeep and it made things worse..couldnt drive over 40mph, had the wheels and tires balanced normally after paying a tire shop to break all four down and remove the beads then all was well again.

Honestly they only work on wheels / tires that are close to in balance anyways. Thier tech support told me that one!

MCN did an extensive review on them awhile back, trying them in both a motorcycle and a car. Their review was not very flattering. They basically said that they showed no improvement whatsoever, and that the tire still required a proper spin balance and that the weight of the beads caused the steering to feel heavy. Their conclusion was to save your money and do a proper spin balance.

I did my own review and they work for me. Just thought I'd share.
