Welcome to the Darkside. If you use Dynabeads you won't need to balance the tire (you can, but not necessary - the beads take care of that). Three ounces for the rear tire, two for the front. Suggest using one of our sponsors for the beads and other items you might need, Bulldog and Meesh are good people. http://www.shop.shinhopples.com/category.sc;jsessionid=24AD1D25B7B8058B4C4A662FFF4150EE.m1plqscsfapp05?categoryId=58

Here's info on the beads and how they work. http://www.innovativebalancing.com/index.php

After you go Darkside, if interested PM Murgie for a Darkside number, and here's the info for a Decal - http://gl1800riders.com/forums/showthread.php?415058-DARKSIDE-DECALS-and-STICKERS-GET-THEM-HERE-INFO

And welcome to miles of smiles.

About three miles into your initial test ride with the car tire you're gonna wonder why there's so much controversy when the bike handles so good. I'ts also real comforting knowing there's a run flat on back of the bike.

exactly! vey, very little difference in the handling; worlds of difference in the safety and the traction. lotsa traction! I just got back from a, shall we say, "spirited jaunt(335 miles) today. zipped thru the twistiest roads I could find within a day's ride of my house. I put the tire, and the race tech front suspension to the test today!
