GYTT 205-60-16 with beads

Post  Guest on Thu Apr 09, 2009 1:09 am

Yesterday, I installed the goodyear tire with 4 oz of beads for balance. I figured truck tires and car tires use this. Do you think I put too much beads in it? It's gonna take a week to get used to the handling, but I'm looking forward to it.

your fine... if not needed to bunch up to control the balancing they should just distribute evenly and not affect anything, I would think.

For future reference and to save a couple bucks, I'd start out with 1/2 that and take it for a test ride. Get some vibration or wobble and I'd go up an ounce, and so forth. A lot of these tires don;t require very much to any (in fact, kinda related, my new front Venom has NO balancing ans is smooth as glass to at least 90 so far. I have the beads hear for it, but haven't needed them)

I was wondering how long it would take you to get back on the darkside with the new scoot... :arrow:

Thanks! Good 2 B back. How's Sturgis looking this year? Any vendors pulling out or locals fussing? The Myrtle Beach rally is looking bad cuz of city fathers.. They must not need the millions.

Welcome back! What tire did you run previously, and have you noticed any difference w/the GYTT?

Thanks! Same tire but on a Retro 1800. It's been a couple yrs, so I'm re'learning' the cause and effect. Now some of my wing friends and others are wanting to do the same Wink

tell you the truth, I don't know... last year was smaller, there were vendor booths open on main street all week! This year I won't even be able to go as I will be deployed all summer... Rolling Eyes Sad

4 oz of beads is good for that tire. You could have gone with 3, but too much is better than too little.

I put 1.5oz of stick on weights when I put my last tire on. 2 oz of beads would have been enough. But as the tire wears, you assume it evens out, but you don't know. At some point it may have required 2.5oz of beads, so the 3 will be just right at that point in the tires life.

Keeping the tire balanced at all wear levels is the beauty of beads. You never want a high speed wobble.

If you do your own tires, next time you change it, go for a ride without balancing it. Just to feel what an out of balance tire feels like. If feels scary.

Welcome back and nice tire.
