I ended up using fishing sinkers that I split to fit the spokes due to these not sticking to the rims well. If you have wide rims they might stick better, however the adhesive on my samples did not feel very tacky. I recommend getting stick on weights from a car shop or spoke weights.
Maybe I used these wrong, but my understanding is these small squares weights are designed to stick to the outside of your rims. They are applied with adhesive so you cannot take them on and off. They seem like a cheap way to fix an unbalanced wheel and do not offer longevity.
These wheel weights seemed nice at first when I put them on. However, they came off on the FIRST ride, the very first one. Now I have to buy differetn weights, take both of my wheels back off, rebalance and put them back on again. I'm going to call and try to get a refund.
Amazing what a difference these make for dual sport use. They are just thin enough to sit on the flat of the rim (530 EXC) and come in black to match the rim color too. For the low cost you get plenty to do both rims.
Nice self-adhesive weight but one big issue: cannot be bent to match the shape of the wheel (bend). Often, rims are not flat, especially on dirt bikes. The steel is really stiff and the weight ends up sticking only in the contact point. Possible flying hazard!
I used the Tusk balancer for my XR650R wheels. Balanced wheels make a big difference, as long as the weights stay put. Now i am spoiled by having balanced wheels. Anything over 25 mph and the balance is very noticed. I even have the wheel locks in place. All i did was clean the rim and stick these on. Even after mud, heat and washing, they all stayed put. I am not sure what kind of adhesive is on these, but it works. They could be a little heavier, but i guess heavier metals, like gold, is rather expensive. I'll take these.
I cleaned the surface and sanded it a little and these still came off. They also don't fit in between the spokes on the inside very good. 1 fits, but not 2. Would be nice to fit 2 when balancing the wheel by putting weights on the inside.
Easy to use, but the shape was difficult for my front wheel. For those that want to balance a tire on a dirt bike just put the axle in the wheel and hold it. You would be surprised how easy it is and you don't need a $100 tool.
