The Centramatic option has some history Larry. I have seen fleets of split wheels using them. Those guys don't spend money on short hop freight rigs and garbage trucks unless they are sold that the value outweighs the cost. Even then though, it amazes me that there isn't a pile of fleet maintenance records to support the claims. I read heat test stuff that would indicate improved longevity, less heat = longer life, but there must be countless millions of miles on these critters. Why so little back up for the guys that want to see savings on paper before they pull the trigger?
I have to admit that I have never seen a Centramatics on a bike. I would like to see it. Does it take away from the visual presentation of the wheel?

The front balancers mount inside of the disk brakes. Unless you are looking for them they are not noticeable. The rear mounts directly to the drive pulley and is pretty much invisible. It is really hard to explain how they effect the ride but you can feel a difference. The bike just feels more stable running down the road.
