While at the motorcycle show on the weekend, I picked up a wheel balancing kit using beads. The kit was $25.00 and provides a 1oz and 2 oz pack of beads (the bags of beads are weighted according to the size of bike one rides). The valve is removed from the tire and the beads are slowly fed in by a small plastic bottle with a clear tube that fits over the valve stem. It took some time to get all the beads into my front tire as they would occasionally get blocked. They suggested to use a engraver and pressing on the valve stem side so the vibration would help the beads flow through into the tire. It definitely took some time, but eventually I got all the beads into the tire. The principle of balancing is as the tire rotates, the beads will automatically disperse to the unbalanced portions of the tire balancing the wheel better than using weights. I was told this occurs at speeds of about 30kmh or greater. Of course once you stop they will all fall to one spot until you travel again. Our washing machine uses the same principle to balance loads during the spin cycles, so I figured it must work on tires as well. I guess I'll how well it works this season and report back on my findings.
