Easy to use and solid build
This is a solid stand and was very easy to assemble and use. I have done a couple KTM front wheels so far and am able to get the wheels true and balanced easily.

I like the small included level and adjustable feet - the stand should be level or the wheel and bar tend to shift left or right as it rotates along the outer roller bearings. Not a big deal but you may start to hear the stop/guard piece grind against the outer roller bearing bolt. Keeping the stand level fixes this. It's a great tool at a great price.

Tusk Motorcycle balancing and truing stand. Affordable, easy to use, well made. Highly recommended.
I would definitely recommend this truing stand. I restore vintage bikes and when truing a vintage wheel a truing stand is a must. The Tusk motorcyle balancing & truing stand is well built. easy to use. Excellent stand 5 stars.

It works
I bought this so that I could re-spoke my wheels. It worked great for the job. It is very simple to use an is a whole lot cheaper than paying someone else to do even just one wheel.

I lost one of the round weights for this tool. I need a new one. Tusk can you help me out?
Perry R on Jun 29, 2018
Will this balance a 21 inch wheel with the tire mounted?
Anthony S on Apr 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, from the bottom diameter of my 21" wheel with a MX52 mounted, it is almost exactly 13". from the bottom of the stand to the maximum diameter of the centering cones is 14.5". You should have a minimum of 1.5" to spare
How true / strong is the shaft? I've seen others that come with a shaft that's already bent some from manufacturing..
A shopper on Jun 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: They come straight and true
Does the stand come with any wheel weights or do I need to purchase balancing weights separately?
JOHN C on Aug 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Did not come with weight. I purchased the lock on spoke wheel weights and wheels felt perfectly balanced at 75mph (fast as I want to go on a WR250R). The stick on rim weights not so good. No-Mar Spoke Wheel Weight is what I used from RM
I know how the cones are used but are the retaining collars necessary? What is their purpose? there are no instructions with this kit.
Christina M on Jun 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: They are like a safety and a spacer. sometimes a wheel my protrude past the point to lock the set screw. This is when the collar would come in handy. Also, I let the cone float and only tightened down the collar when pressed firmly together. After multiple uses, I had a shaft machined to my axle size and eliminated the hardware altogether. Mainly because I only do my stuff. Also, make sure the Balancer is on a firm foundation (non wobbly) and use the level to get close and then verify with another level. I use an empire torpedo level. My ride has been the smoothest ever since I started balancing my wheels myself.
What is the "EXACT" measurement from axle cradle or center to stand base? I am not looking for "kinda, should probably fit". I will be working with custom larger rims.
Phil V on Jul 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: 12” exactly between the heads of the Allen bolts holding the bearings on the arms. You could get some other hardware or grind the bolt heads some if you need a little more room. Also, 12 9/16” between bearing faces and 13 5/16” between arm faces. Hope this helps
Are there a set of adapters for single sided swing arm wheels? Such as Ducati Multistrada, BMW, Honda VFR, etc.
A shopper on Jun 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: There is a tapered spacer that slides against the bearing that holds the wheel in place. As long as the inner diameter of the wheel bearing is less than 32mm it should work. The bikes you listed that have spoke wheels are high end adventure bikes. Understand wheel trueness is more important on bikes that see street riding vs off road bikes. It takes practice to become competent at wheel truing. Not sure I would want to learn on a wheel for a road bike that needs to be true to a higher degree than a dirt bike.
Will this work for a 2012 R6?
A shopper on Aug 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If wheel will fit through the rod it should work fine I would think. I have one for dirtbikes but I don't see how a street bike would be different. As long as your axle is no bigger than 32mm wide from what Info says. Probably be best to contact Rocky Mountain personally on this one.
What is the diameter and length of the balancing shaft?
A shopper on Aug 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It’s less than a half inch in diameter and a little over a foot long. The shaft has cones that can be secured with set screws to hold the wheel in place. I think the cones are about two inches in diameter.
How do I adjust the rim pointer it just screws tight an is set at the same spot every time??? Just bought this doesn’t come with any instructions...
A shopper on Jul 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Getting the pointer to a constant location is a challenge. You have to keep tweaking until you get the point of Kia and a steady place on the ram in both positions to check the rotation and balance and the hop. In my opinion play the needle adjust should have been better constructed. The patient will be consistent.
Will this Tusk stand work with 2012 BMW F800GS 21" front and 17" rear wheel? With tires on rim?
Kameran A on Aug 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes it should work fine for 21" and 17" wheels, I would recommend getting a dial indicator with a magnetic base. Also purchase a spoke torque wrench to make sure you tighten evenly all of the spokes. For street riding you are going to want to be a true as possible, it will take some time but once you get it it's easy to do.
does this stand work with a Honda VFR rear wheel?
Lance C on Dec 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your responses.

Does this stand work for balancing a rear wheel from a motorcycle with a single-sided swingarm? My Honda VFR, like many BMW and Ducati motorcycles, has a single-sided swingarm. The rear wheel does not have bearings in it, does not have an axle, does not have an axle hole. Like many Ducati's and BMW's, the Honda VFR rear wheel bolts directly onto a hub assembly. Thus, to balance the wheel, adapters are needed to fit inside the wheel's center hole. The conical adapters for normal wheels and their axles that go through the wheel from one side of a two-sided swingarm to the other side of the swingarm will not work for the VFR.
Could this be used to true a crank? Set a dial indicator up on each side? I haven't seen this in person.
Brett on Nov 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I’m going say no not with out modifying the tusk stand. I just don’t think the legs on the stand come close enough together
what are the torque specs for the spokes on this rim?
A shopper on Oct 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This is a truing stand. For spoke torque specs the best thing would be to refer to a owners manual or service manual.
What is the diameter of the 'shaft, and what is the smallest wheel bearing this will work with ?
Randy J on Aug 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: it is 15mm. that is the smallest bearing size you can put on it.
