Balance beads on the 700GS rims
Has anyone used balance beads in the F700GS OEM rims, I'm wondering if they are compatible with the valve stem on the front and the tire pressure monitors? Can you install them with the wheels mounted and on the bike? Also which brand to buy?
I can never seem to get a decent shake when it comes to mounting & balancing wheels and tires,,.
I recall the OEM setup to be pretty good with very few wts from the factory, two on one wheel and none on the other,,. Now I have 12 weights on the back and six on the front and I find that starting at 80 mph the front seems very course & with handlebar vibrations and gets progressively worse as the speed increases,,. 80 mph is the point where the engine RPM is getting up into the 6000's so maybe this is a factor as well,,.
Not sure if I'm expecting to much? ,,,,,,,,,,Comments would be welcomed?
