Dyna Beads

Okay with so much mixed talk about the beads I did a little web search and found a world of arguments for and against Dyna Beads. One web review they said they tested the beads using a high speed balancing machine and the beads failed every time.

Now some supporters of dyna beads that have seen this test claim you canít use a balance machine to test dyna beads, not sure why.

So how do you know for sure they are working if you can use a balance machine?

All I know is that since I started using them, my front no longer shakes, my ride is much smoother, and my tires are lasting significantly longer. No scientific research here, just anecdotal evidence.

AN ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE! Thank you, Jesus. (I am amazed at the grace and patience you have shown.)

They seem to work for me but then maybe I'm just disillusioned?

If I had to make a guess as to why a balance machine would not work, I would think it has something to do with the fact that the machine does not vibrate to assist with redistribution of the beads. One other thing is most spin balancers run for a very short time and would not give enough time either. Just a theory though...

As far as I know Dyna Beads has always said you can't test with a balancing machine.

Ask the people that use them...I use them and they work for me.

I'd like to hear their explanation for this to better understand the whole situation.
