That's the best part of DIY anything, knowing it was done correctly--and if it wasn't then only you are to blame; just learn from that and do it again. No big deal...Better than cycle shops - which use the same method but are less than patient - often with mixed results.
Maybe? I'm old school on the balance. I like static balance because it uses gravity which never needs re-calibratingBag O beads would be easier me thinks.
Hey JoeBoy! Welcome to the forum.I am new to the forum but I have many years in motorcycling. I made a small pair of devices many years ago from 4 roller blade bearings and some aluminium angle...(yes I am in the uk and its pronounced aluminium here). Anyway it balances any size motorcycle wheel easily and quickly by placing the wheel and spindle on it on some axle stands and spinning the wheel a little and then letting it stop by itself so the heaviest part settles at the bottom, the top is them marked with a marker pen and a little weight is added and spun again...if it then stops in the same position a little more weight is added until it stops in any random place. If it then stops all the time with the weights at the very bottom you have added too much weight, so remove a little...easy.
Yeah you have me on the back wheel one...I would have to find a bit of bar the right size or wrap some tape over a slightly smaller one so it fits snug in the center and try that.Hey JoeBoy! Welcome to the forum.
The roller blades turned into a balance stand is a great idea! I understand how it works on the front wheel using the spindle (axle) but what are you doing for the rear wheel? The rear is the one that gave me problems because it has no bearing (in the wheel) or removable spindle (axle).
