Here are some assumptions I am currently living with:

Dyna Beads are a good way to go for balancing - especially if I go darkside

Should I be stuck on the side of the road with a flat, shooting in some fix a flat will just muck up the beads and my balancing beyond the ability to get to a MC shop for another tire.

Are those true statements?

i use the dyna beads in my cruiser, and never had a flat with them so dont know, i carry both slime and air inflator and plugs with co2 kit...


if the tire is mounted right, your close to being balalnced out anyway, it wount hurt for a few miles and better then riding a flat!!!

For what its worth. I did my own front install. Bought the dyna beads but didnt put them in and its as smooth as can be. Even with no hands. So I am going to do the same thing with the rear. If I feel something I'll put the dyna beads in.

But yes. If you slime the tire the beads are gonna be stuck in one spot. But beats pushing it.

yup, better the lump going "ka goon, ka goon" than pushing.

Plug the tire and go, the dynabeads will just re-balance the tire. Drive away. If you HAVE to use slime DON"T and use a product like Ride On that cleans out with water.

If you have to limp into a shop more than likely where-ever you are will only stick a MC tire on but you'll be running again, for about 250-300 bucks but that's emergencies for you.

I've never used dynabeads on anything but getting a tire balanced will only run about 10-15 dollars and by doing this you can plug or add flat fix chemicals without glueing to the dynabeads.
