Put on new Michelin Pilot Road II's.
Installed Dyna Beads.
For those of you that don't know, Dyna Beads are for balancing tires without weights.
The idea is, the beads will go where they need to in order to keep the tire balanced.

Anyway, so far so good... no wobbles or vibrations to report.
I'm sure this will cause some controversy, so fire away.
Here's a link that explains it better. http://www.innovativebalancing.com/motorcycle.htm

I mentally have a bit of a problem taking the balancing from the rigid medium (the rim) to an elastic medium (the tire). Seems like it would promote uneven wear more than fix that problem.

I know there was a pretty long thread on Dyna Beads somewhere on this board. Consensus seemed to be that they were okay for very small imbalances (as in, almost completely balanced to begin with), but wouldn't fix anything outside of a very small imbalance.

I have #9 birdshot in my tires. A bag of shot from the local sporting goods store was similarly priced and after doing my truck tires have a ton of leftover beads.
