Ride-On or similar tire addative

I used Rise-On on my motorcycle for added safety and better wheel balancing. I think instructions were to add extra 2-4 ounces for balancing purposes.

Anyone here use it on you 986?

I dunno, sounds like a big mess if I was a tire guy changing tires after this was installed.

I'm not a physicist, but how do centrifugal force and balancing equal up? I'd trust the lead weights first it seems.

Dynamic balancing is like dyna beads. But the Ride On adds puncture protection. Yes a mess for changing tires - good to let them know up front.

I know a lot of MC shops keep in on hand for routine use.

Hmm I never used it or nor any of my riding friends have used it. I will have to do some research.

Well I was about to post to not believe the claims other than puncture resistance, fortunately I read the product info link enough to see the Shelby Series 1 picture. I worked for Shelby throughout the engineering development phase at the facility here in LA. I had the privilege of working with Mark Visconti, a good suspension engineer who went to work for Multimatic when Series 1 developement was finished. After reading the letter signed by Mark Visconti I would have to withhold my opinion till after testing myself.
