Default Dyna beads vs ride on

I have dyna beads they work and work well. I wasnt aware that ride on existed when i purchased dyna beads..When i purchased dyna beads i purchased the speacial valve stems that are suppose to be needed for dyna beads..well they suck, they were the source of a slow leak in my frt tire. I removed both and went back with standard stems and have had no trouble since..Now in hind sight I would have prefered ride on after seeing the info on them..They provide for protection from punctures as well as better balancing

If you do ride on before pouring in go to hardware store and buy a longer hose. The one that comes with it is way to short.
If you can put ride on in before you put tire on bike it will be way easier.

If any of you that have ride on in your tires and its time to get new tire before you take old tire off drill some holes in tire and see if it seals. Please report back to us so we know if it works or not. TKS

I've ued it in several sets of tires on different bikes and currently have it in my XCT. I did discover one day in my RoadStar a nail in my back tire. I checked the pressure and it was 2 lbs low from what I normally ran. The nail head was almost ground off so I guessed it was in there for a while. I replaced the tire and added Ride On to the new one. I believe it works.

I have used it on the last 2 sets of tires - the tires stayed balanced lost very little pressure over the course of a year and lasted longer....

Good stuff

I tried ride on
Ran over a nail and there was ride on sprying all over the place...

Two min later the tire was flat...

I stopped buying it. I was realy hoping it was the product that would allow for a worry free ride when a long way from home

I don't use Ride-on, but I believe I read somewhere (perhaps on their web site) that the product will not prevent loss of air if the object protrudes into/out of the sidewall. It would normally work as advertised if the pointy thingy went through the treaded area. correct?? incorrect???

I used dyna beads on my Goldwings and they worked as advertised. I haven't had to purchase anything like that yet....ride is smooth .... so far.

How big was the nail? Was the correct dosage for the tire size used?

I use Ride-On and hope the added protection will help but at the same time I know that it only protects 1-1.5" from the center of the tire to each side. As long as all the debris I catch ends up in the narrow band I'm good!
