Yep.... with the rim lock, it starts to bounce a bit around 80mph. That is why I am going to add a second rim lock on the other side (both front and rear wheels) so they balance out. Problem solved!

But if you are going to try to balance a wheel with a rim lock.... buy the really really big wheel weights.

I use motion pro rim locks on my 450 and cant feel anything up to 75-80. With stock rim locks it was very bad above 50 mph.

Never balanced tires on 950 (no rim locks) - no problems up to 110.
