Thanks for the posting of the videos. I have heard a lot about these, talked to some have used them, talked to sceptics, and think this is a way I may head. Reading about things helps, and talking to others help, but the videos are the one thing that really helps this dummy. Guess I am a visual person

Hello, A freind and I just installed a new set of Stones on our 1800 and also installed dyna beads. We have put about 200 miles on our bikes since installing them and so far, we love them. The set we purchased from the following web site came with a plastic tubes. 2 OZ per tire. We removed the valve core, cut one end of the plastic tube, placed it over the stem, cut the other end of the tube and used a little air pressure to blow the beads into the tire. The only thing to remember is to have the tube securely placed on the stem and to have the stem in any postion other than 6 o'clock. You will have to use a little "air" force to blow them out of the tube, but they go in quite nicely. I have attatched the link to the web site I purchased them from and they worked alot better than the bottle and vibration method on other sites. Any questions, let me know..JT http://www.evolutioncycles.com/dynabeads.htm

Obviously, these Dynabeads work.
I just don't get HOW they work.
How is it possible for these little beads to seek out and run to the "wrong" side of the tire? Seems like they are defying some physical law.
What majical stuff are they made of?

I don't understand it either. I wish someone would/could explain the science...

Sofa Driver, I think they are made from some type of ceramic material, but I could be wrong. I have been told by my wife that I have been wrong in the past, so I cannot commit to 100% on this issue..lol

Hey, thanks!

Now let's try it with marbles just for fun! Ball bearings? Theoreticaly, I guess it would work with golf balls! Be a helluva ride if it didn't, though!

marbles would work nicely in a giant tire like one off of a 747. But, they would be a very crowded in a little motorcycle tire.



I had the right to remain silent, I just didn't have the ability.
