Mounted my rear tire yesterday (Harbor Freight system...still not easy).Did spin balance with home made balancer using roller blade bearing).
Need a source for the clip-on balancing weights? Anyone???
Called several local cycle dealers, parts dept doesnt sell them.

I don't know why these places say that they don't sell them. They are literally telling you "We don't want your money". :eek:

The clip on weights are listed in the "Parts Unlimited" catalog, and can be ordered out of the catalog just like any other part. If my memory is correct, they come in increments of 10 grams. Honda also sells them. They aren't cheap, but they are a part... just like any other part.

My shop doesn't use them as a rule, they use the cheesy stick on weights. When a bike comes in with them, they just strip them off the wheel and throw them in a box. They know to use them on my bike though. They just reuse a few of the old ones out of the box.

If I ask, they'll let me pick through the box and take a few extras with me.
