Tire mounting and balance beads...

Recommended Posts

Also used a 90 degree valve stem from bikemaster.
 
Tonight I'll start on the rear.
 
I added the balance beads through the valve stem. This took about 10 minutes, but went smoothly once the technique was perfected.
 
There are some good video on YouTube.

Interested to hear what you think of the counter balance beads.

I haven't used the beads but I am a believer in Ride-on, http://www.ride-on.com/motorcycle-formula-mot.html .  This product is not only a dynamic balancer but it is also supposed to help with punctures near the center of the tread.  During the 5 years ~31k miles using this product I must have been blessed, I didn't encounter a situation where I needed to test the puncture protection. ;-) 
Being pleased with this product I will not use weights on my bike wheels again, as long as this product is available.

Mounted a new front tire yesterday with bike master irons and promotion rim shields.  Took some effort, but not too bad.  Used counteract balance beads and the ride in this morning seemed fine.

What tire is that? Interesting cuts on it.
