Balance Beads

Post  johnnie1 on Sun Apr 15, 2012 2:33 pm

Just wondering how hard it is to put the balance beads in a Goldwing tire thru the L-SHAPED valve core and with the tire monitoring system. Has anyone done it?.

I put Dynabeads in mine through the TPMS valve stems with no problem.
I used a finish sander without any sandpaper in it to vibrate the tubing and they just flowed in. thumbup

THAT's what I was trying to remember! A finish sander! The vibrating etching pen doesn't work very well, as they still get stuck a lot.
Well, in all honesty, I DID get it at HF...

Hi All,

I put mine in with a little tube and a small syringe W/O the plunger and used a little air pressure. Work OK for me.

You could just wave a magic wand over the tire and get the same results as the beads thumbup

I enjoy reading your response, as if fits my own thought exactly.
