    When you pour the beads through the tube and into the valve stem just do a few at a time and it's all good. Get in a hurry and try to force too many at once and they clog things up. Just take your time.

    :campfire1: I'm a believer in the dyna beads. I used them in the last two sets of tires and have seen MY best even wear to date , good longevity and so smooth you forget it can even be an issue. I did get a thou or two more out of the E'3s but the bridgestone exedras held up well and were a lot quieter and cheaper. the stone rear got 12 thou and the front went 14 thou to the wear bar so with results like that i'll be running with the exedras till further notice :) ,,, your results may vary. :smile_popcorn:

    balancing beads are ok inside of an inner tube? So far, all I've seen was tubeless tires... thanks.

    This is what they have on their website: DynaBeads Tire Balancing Beads

    A: Absolutely! As a precaution, we strongly suggest a new tube with a new Dyna Beads application to avoid the problems of compressor oil accumulating on the inside over time. It turns gummy and the beads will stick to it.

    Had Dynabeads in my old TC Deluxe and run them in my XC. Never using weights again. Dynabeads keep the tire balanced no matter what. They have a video on YouTube of a water bottle on a cordless drill with a weight taped to the side, and then showing the difference running the drill with and without the Dynabeads. Pretty compelling video.

    I used Dyna-Beads in two Suzuki Boulevards for 84,000 miles, with tubes, before I got my CR and they were excellent. Great mileage and ran smooth.

    I am now using them in the tires of my CR. Second set and very happy.

    I know this is an old post, but just learned of ride-on after having a nail puncture my rear tire. I was hoping to get the tire patched as it still had 4 to 5k left on it. Ended up replacing the tire. I was wondering if ride-on is meant to be a permanent fix. If not, how would one know he had a puncture if this stuff seals it?

    Yes old thread and old enough to say I have changed tires and didn't use ride-on this time.
    Couldnt get my tires to balance out with the product.
    The sealing nature of the product is not designed as a permanent seal but to get you off the road safely.

    Carry a plug kit. It doesn't take up much space and you will need it eventually.

    That's the whole point. The tire would be compromised and you'd have no idea. Better to use a TPMS of some sort and know your tire pressures than not at all. Each to their own.

    Once the puncture occurs the tire will loose some pressure before the sealant finds its way to the hole. You may feel it and you may not. Check tire pressures often and inspect your tires.

    Make sure the inside of your tire has no gunk in it before installing the beads. The dealer installed some during my Vision tire install and the bozo got goop in my tire, the beads stuck to one another and made the bike shake really bad. They ended up cleaning the tire and just put a regular weight on it.

    I wash my new tires in the bathtub with warm soap and water inside and out then dry them before installing them.
    Any oils from manufacturing are washed away.
