I bought a new Avon cobra front tire from Hal. With all the concerns about cobras, I built my own tire mounting table with bead breaker and got a Mojo tool ( so I could remount it just in case). I set out to do the task at hand since this is the bikes first tire change, made some minor adjustments so the bead breaker would work. When I was ready to mount up the new tyre, I could not find a balance mark anywhere on the tyre. I am using Dyna Beads so I just dumped them inside the tyre after I had the first bead on. I test rode the bike and everything is good so far. My question is does Avon always have a light spot marked on the tyre, and if so where do they usually put it and what does the marking look like

Avon doesn't mark the light spots. Trial and error, or dyna beads will get them balanced.
