    Dyna Beads

    Are you lads using Dyna Beads when installing new tires? How new are they? I better check my wheels for weights. Will the dealer ask you if that's what you want or do you buy them and then tell them to use them? Thanks

    I had them installed on one bike out of curiosity and they worked quite well. If I remember correctly, the tech simply just 'installed' them through the valve stem by means of gravity--he poured them inside the seated tire, filled it with air and off you went.

    I've used them in the past, seemed to work fine, which is to say, I has no problems, unnoticeable when in use.

    I switched to Ride-on, as dynabeads didnt work as well at impound-worthy speeds. Plus, Ride-on seals leaks and punctures.
    Where do I find the intake snackle??

    I'm currently on dyna beads and I like em !! can't really tell much of the difference !! I was just happy to get rid of those ugly wheel weights !! my next step would most likely be the Ride-on.. I do believe EMS carries both and will install it for you for a reasonable price !!

    Ride on is a liquid sealant instead of solid beads, but performs the same function.

    Interesting. Which would you choose if you chose either?

    At Motorcycleworld, we used to sell the dyna beads. They do exactly what they are suposed to do. They get rid of the wheel weights and they actully work very well. But, they are not that pleasant of a product to work with. Most of the time, you dont get all of them in the tire as you should and if you have to take the tire off for any reason, new tire or to patch a puncture, they go everywhere.
    We started selling the Ride On a while ago now. It too is a bit of a pain to put in ( i do not recomend getting the bottle and installing it yourself. Same price for a tech to do it for you). Its kinda like changing a diaper. stinks, kinda sticky and gooey and has the same consistancy. haha.
    All I can say about the stuff is it works like a hot damn. We had 2 customers come in on Saturday, that we installed the product in, with nails in the tires. pulled them out, thats it. no plug, no dismounting nothing.
    I rode a bike out to the valley a few nights ago that we installed it in. no wheel weights, no balancing. couldnt feel any vibration.
    I have no long term testing on it but honestly, not trying to sell it, I recomend it. it works great. piece of mind if your taking a road trip over the summer. not that expensive ( between $20-$30 per tire depending on the amount you have to put in).
    Just my thoughts.

    Definitely Ride-on. Smoother, easier to deal with, and it seals small leaks and punctures. In my very non-scientific comparison, it's also more effective at, ahem, freeway speeds.

    Looking for the next one
    Ted installed Dyna Beads with my tires and I have no complaints. I do, however, like how much better my rims look without weights.
