    If you are doing the static weight balancing there would be no way of knowing which side was out. I generally just put weights on one side unless I need alot. I've got spoke weights on the KLR and KTM, stickon on the ST. The KTM bounced quite violently on the road as it had only one wheel lock and no weights. After balancing, 3 oz front and 4 rear, its been fine.

    It shouldnt make any difference where you put the weights whether they are in the center or side.
    You could also try doing a huge burnout using all sides of the tire and see if that helps with vibration:D

    I change tires, then put it on the balance before I bead them up. I spin the tire on the rim until I find the best balance, bead them up and ride with no weights.

    What about buying REUSABLE spoke weights?
    A few different places sell them.

    FB6 .. IS NOT a Dragon .. It's a Gold Wing...
    Only the Valkyrie is called a Dragon...

    The FB6 really reminds me of the Victory ..
    Ya know the one that looks like Bozo the clown from the front...:puke1

    I personally don't care for fixed fairings..Very hard to run the twisties at night with them...BTDT..
    And them wheelbarrow handle bars.. To me are the pits..

    But I wish Honda well with them...

    Hey there you Eastern PA BS'ers!

    I live next door in NJ and just bought a new-to-me '09 Husky TE610 :clap:rofl:lol3:clap!!!

    Anyway, I'll be lookin' to take her out on some dirt, gravel, ATV trails, whatever I can find round these here parts...

    I am quite sure it's been covered elsewhere, but what are the rules about riding a plated, insured, etc. DS bike in the State Parks? Are there forest/gravel roads, etc. that are available and legal? Private OHV/ATV, etc. parks?

    I'm open to any-and-all thoughts and questions...

    Thanks, BS'ers!
