Always balance the front and rarely need to balance the rear.

There is chance of two sets of weights if you balance the wheel then install the tire and do not recheck the balance of the now assembled components.

Your logic is tough to follow there PerazziMx14. So, I have a wheel and the wheel has weights on it to put in balance. I add a tire to the wheel and I do not attempt to balance the wheel tire combination, therefore I do not add weights to the weights already on the wheel..... yet somehow I have two sets of weights.

Doing it that way is no different than just installing the tire and riding off into the sunset. Balancing the wheel and then adding an unbalanced tires to the wheel would translate to an unbalance wheel tire combo?

i think im going to be ok
the front is balanced
the rear is not,but the weights already on the rear,are opposite the TPS
this makes sense to me

unfort i cant ride the bike yet,as the exhaust is getting ceramic coat,and the guy is still waiting for product he ordered

when i balanced the front,i only needed to move the balance weight previously fitted,a small amount.the weight ended up opposite the TPS...i prob would have got away with not balancing the front

i dont thing 110KPH is going to worry these tyres re imbalance

thats a great idea to balance the wheel....then im only looking at the tyre out of balance,and these days the tyres are fairly true(decent brand names)

the next time i change the tyre thats what ill do

thanks for all replies

Abba makes a bush to fit. Google Abba rear wheel adaptor 1200gs

with tps mine always needs to be balanced opposite the tps. manual says max 80g and it always needs 80g to get towards balance. i prefer to do it but many places don't bother

I change my own tires and started using balance beads many changes ago. Initially I used beads designed for the task, but have recently changed to using airsoft beads. They are hard rubber and Iíve reused them over multiple tire changes because there were no damaged beads and no obvious change to the inside of the tire. I make sure to use 2 oz of beads and bothfront and rear are quite smooth at 100 mph.
