Default Dyna Beads vs E-Z Beads

Saturday I got a rear flat on '15 XCT. Plugged it, made it in to the dealer and got new tire. Here's the problem. Got home, I live 150 miles from dealer, and next day there was two wheel weights on the garage floor under my bike. Obviously tech didn't stick them on good. Now I'm 150 miles from dealer to balance the rear tire. But I would rather have Dyna beads, I have them in my Harley and really like the way they perform. I found Dyna beads on ebay for front and rear wheel at $19.00. I also found E-Z beads on Amazon for the same $. Are E-Z beads the same as Dyna beads? Do they install the same? I have never installed them myself but understand it helps to vibrate the valve stem while installing. So, long story short, are E-Z beads and Dyna beads the same and is install the same. Thanks

I think the video below will answer your question but to me they look and install the same. I would not use the special shrader valves with the filters. There have been many who have had trouble with those and the beads.

I think Dyna Beads and such were developed for trucks and are not rated for more than 80 mph...

Default Ride On

I used Ride On in my tires on my last bike, never had a problem. I have it here and will be installing it in this bike once I know I can take it for a ride after installation.

I have run the "balance beads" in all my bike tires since 2007. My 900 Vulcan, the RSV and when I have to change tires on the XCT I'll use them again. I have had them over 80 mph and probably more for short periods with no problems. On the Vulcan I had to put them in thru the vale core because it was a tube type tire. The rest were tubeless tires, so I would set the bead, then break one side enough to get the beads in.

Yessss first tire, E3 I put DYNA beads trough the valve stem ... I found this soooo tedious, and these DYNA beads do fly everywhere ....

So the first new tire I bought stainless beads / shoved them trough the side-wall and hopefully when changing to a new tire then NOT creating such a MESS in the shop coz the stainless are much bigger then the tiny DYNA ....

Bike runs GREAT on these stainless balls ... Same as DYNA

How come my wheel weights don't come off?
Your tires last more than a year?
