Engineoops Your Honda service manual shows where the red dot goes. On my vtx1300r it does not go at the valve stem .

You are again mistaken. And you are also misrepresenting what Yokahama says. At no point did they assert that the minimum radial pint on a rim is at the stem hole. So making such an unwarranted assumption is indeed just s guess.
Careful with using logic, you’re dealing with someone who has all this crap bookmarked, although no practical experience....a virtual internet mechanic.

Just use a dial indicator and rotate a wheel in a fixed jig to find the TRUE low point of a rim. On decent wheels it will probably be close to imperceptible, but if you want to spend a little time in pursuit of perfection, at least do it the right way.

Donnie Downer Stem is not always the heaviest spot of the rim. IIRC, there is a dot on the rim.
I do my own tires. Mark the heavy spot on just the rim, then temporally balance just the rim. Then mount the tire and find it’s light spot, remove temp weights rotate tire to align. Hardly any weight ever needed.
