Great Tool
Easy to set up, easy to use and works great!! I have always ridden dirt bikes my entire life, so balancing my wheels was a non issue. Now that I have an adventure bike it’s completely necessary. I can not think of an easier way to do it than this!

Must have tool for DIY tire changing.
When paired with the Tusk Tire Changer it makes changing your motorcycle tires yourself easy. At what shops charge to change tires the tow will pay for themselves in no time. It also allows you to order tires from RMATV and save more money.

Almost perfect!
Bought this to lace up a new rim for my WR250R. This thing is well built, goes together in a few minutes and just works. The only gripe I have is that the indexing bar doesn't tighten down at a 90 degree angle to the wheel.

It's designed so that you have to turn the rod itself to tighten it down and it tightens up about 45 degrees from where it needs to be. I have to try to take in apart and add the right thickness washer to make it tighten in the right orientation to be functional.
This should be redesigned. Otherwise, I'm very happy!

Perfect for turing wheels
This is pretty much the best wheel truing/ balancing stand for the money. There are a few that are very similar but do not have all the features and are more expensive.

Good enough
I'm not gonna give it 5 stars because assembling it is annoying, but it does work fine for balancing / truing once it's set up.

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
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.
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 "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: From the base to the center of the spindle in the cradle is 15 and 1/8 inches.
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.
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.
Could this be used to true a crank? Set a dial indicator up on each side? I haven't seen this in person.
BRETT W 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.
