Default Centramatic vs Dyna Beads vs Ride On

Has anyone used any of these products? I am thinking of getting Centramatic. More expensive than other products but can be used for many tire changes. Centramatic claims they have balancers with 1,439,716 miles on them. And they are located down here in my neck of the woods. Y'all come back.

I use Ride-On and love it. It balances the tire perfectly and I have even had it plug punctures.

Others have reported it just spraying the coagulant all over the place instead of plugging the hole but it has worked well for me.

I've been using Dyna Beads for some time now, smooth at all speeds. Plus I don't have to look at those ugly weights stuck on my wheels.

I have used dyna beads, smooth ride every time.
My only complaint was when changing tires, I always seemed to spill the old beads on the floor.

I have been considering the Centermatic balancers. One of my goldwing riding friends has them. Says they're great. Last time he traded his bike in, he pulled them off the old one, put them on the new one. That beats spending another $300.

You can replace a bunch of tires with new dyna beads for the price of the centramatics. I'm gonna stick with dyna beads. I've used them in the past and they seem to work perfectly. I do my own tire changes and use dyna beads for balancing, they are a bit of a pain to install but a turkey baster with a length of clear tubing works pretty well..

Have you gone to the tech section and done your research? Or are you being lazy

Ride-On's in my tires, and no complaints. Any of my future tires will continue to get Ride-On in them.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

I used DynaBeads for years then on a whim used Ride-On to just compare. Can't tell a bit of difference - both are really smooth.

Anyone with Centramatic experience?
I'm going for the fronts with a new E3 in the A.M. and continuing on with a 300 mile trip. Will report.
