The problem with the weights is a vender issue. Because of international sales Vic had to change the material. They sourced the weights from a company that cheesed it with the adhesive and it did not turn up as a percieved issue till there were a bunch of bikes on the street. If you replace the weights with new ones[lead is best] they will stay

ok..

the weights do have adhesive pads on the bottom...the bike rides fine ... but it looks like this is how it will be until the stock tires go....

it really weird though....they fall off in the garage...

Lost mine too! Dealer put beads in at no cost. I rode the bike to the dealer with no weights and had no problems and I noticed no difference after the beads were installed. When I need new tires I will stand there and watch them spin the tires without beads and then with and see what the computer thinks of them.

Default Wheel Weights

I thought I was the only one who experienced the garage weight drop.
I've lost two sets and can't identify where they were originally attached. They mainly suck.

i agree... really CS if you know what i'm saying... mine left the adhesive pad...so i glued the fronts back on... then a set from the rear dropped off...now days i just ignore it...the bike rides fine, all speeds...

and in fact i am just about to check it again... couple hundred miles up to the rim-country...top of the line ride...
