Just curious if any one would know why at 45-50 mph my gunner starts shaking, not bad but enough that i can notice it, wondering if my balance weight in my tire fell off or?
Sometime when a tire wears it wears in such a way that it can throw the balance off due to how it was made. Good time to check bearings too.Just curious if any one would know why at 45-50 mph my gunner starts shaking, not bad but enough that i can notice it, wondering if my balance weight in my tire fell off or?
Tires are basically brand new i thought it could have been the weight fell off the rim or to much air in my tire.Sometime when a tire wears it wears in such a way that it can throw the balance off due to how it was made. Good time to check bearings too.
Sometimes a rear vibration can feel like it's in the front.
Because the beads are on bottom. They are less likely to be sitting where the valve is. I think my XCT only uses 1.2 oz of beads in rear. Also I installed "T" type valve stems. So my TPMS caps sit on top and the "service" port is horizontal when I check or add air.Please help me to understand why checking the pressure with the valve stem on the bottom will prevent beads from getting stuck in the valve mechanism. I have never used them but my mental image is that they settle to the bottom of the tire when the bike is stopped so wouldn't it be better to test the air pressure with the valve stem at the top of the tire or, at least, as close to the top as you get it while still being able to reach the stem.
I don't understand why, but they work.I must admit that I have difficulty getting my head around the concept of these balancing beads. How do the beads migrate to what is supposedly the lightest part of the tyre? Would they not just gravitate to the point of the tyre that is furthest from the rim, given that tyres aren't perfectly round?
Maybe the use of beads is just something that hasn't really caught on in Australia as yet. I don't know of any of my riding friends that use them, and I've never used them either so I won't say they don't work. I'd just be interested to see the science behind them.
