Balancing your motorcycle tires is an important aspect of maintaining your bike. Unbalanced tires can cause uneven wear which can lead to unsafe driving conditions (up to and including loss of control). Properly balanced tires ensure a smooth ride. Anytime you purchase new motorcycle tires, you should have them balanced. You should also balance your motorcycle tires if the weights happen to fall off, or if you notice your tires are starting to wear in an abnormal way.
1. Gently spin the tire and wait for it to stop.
Give the wheel a spin so it turns 2 or 3 times. If you use too much force, touch the tire with your finger to slow it down. When it comes to a complete stop, the heaviest part of the wheel will be at the bottom
2. Mark the lowest part of the wheel with tape.
Peel off a small piece of masking tape. Position it on the bottom part of the rim, right in the center. Fasten it in place to mark the wheel’s lowest point.
3. Tape a wheel weight to the rim's top end.
Purchase some adhesive wheel weights from a tire shop. The wheel’s highest point, opposite the point you marked earlier, is the lightest part of the wheel. Place the weight directly on the rim. Instead of peeling off the backing, secure the weight with a piece of masking tape.
4. Rotate the wheel to spin it again.
Slowly spin the wheel until the taped side and weighted side are on the right and left. Then let go of the wheel and wait for it to come to a stop. The heaviest side will once again come to the bottom.
5. Add and remove weights to balance the wheel.
Add weights to the lightest part of the wheel, which is always at the top. If the part with the weight is on top again, that means it’s still too light. If the weight ends up at the bottom, that means it’s too heavy and you need to remove weight from that end.
6. Stop adding weight when the wheel no longer rotates on its own.
by rotating it until the heavy and light sides are on the right and left again. When the wheel is balanced, the tire will not move. The heavy side won’t fall back to the bottom. Give the wheel a few extra tests to make sure it is balanced.
