If you ever thought your motorcycle couldn’t get any smoother? Now it can with Centramatic motorcycle wheel balancers for GL1800 Gold Wing motorcycle. Just ask anyone who installed these.
2012 Wing. Installed these when changing tires from a monster screw in the rear. Tires had 10500 on them, and the rear was questionable, less screw. Did a initial review on how smooth the bike is. I'm now at over 15000 miles on the set with the balancers! The claimed increase in tire life is accurate. I will not have a Wing without them. A good product.
After several K miles with Centramatic and new E3 tires, some all day trips 8-10 hours, through winding mountain roads, interstates and big city traffic. The Centramatics preforms very well in as much no vibrations, the wheels are balanced.
Upon installation, one should insure ALL balancing weights are removed!!!! Some of the complainants may not have removed their balance weights from the wheel. It is very important to remove balancing weights, confirm rotation and insure the tire yellow dot is at the valve stem.
AGAIN, if one can take the wheels off their bike most car tire shops can remove and put back on the rim your new tire. They just donâ€™t have the balancing equipment. Much, much less cost than a MC / bike shop. I found that taking off my GL1800 wheels is very easy. Recommend OEM torques when re-installing.
The most notable change on the first test drive after installation was handling in turns. My bike feels like itâ€™s on a rail going into and out off turns. Not sure why but the difference is real and I loved the tightness along with no drifting.
During my trip south is was smooth cruising 80-85 mph and no vibration. I monitored the cupping and noticed that most of it had worn away by the time I reached, Florida. My tires also became quieter in and out of turns. When I reached the end of my trip you had to look very hard to find any cupping, and I hardly hear a moan when turning now. I expect to replace my tire next month and I canâ€™t wait to experience the difference.
As I said, money well spent and I highly recommend the purchase for Goldwing owners. I hope the review motivates some of you to make the investment. You won't be sorry. Installation took me about three hours to install both front and back tires.
The tires, very worn Dunlap E3's @ 42 psi front and rear. Both the front and rear tire have severe cupping and groan loudly in turns. At highway speed I experience vibration. Regardless, I wanted to evaluate how significant of a difference these balancers would make on my worn out tires.
So the following weekend, I drove from Roanoke, Virginia to Orlando, Florida. After cruising three hundred miles of coastline I came back home accruing over two thousand miles on my three day weekend.
I debated for years to buy these. A year ago I spent the bucks and got a set because they were so highly recommended to me by Wingstuff.
My riding buddy has a Goldwing the same year with the same mileage as mine. We both put on new tires, the same brand on our bikes the same day. We both had our tire balanced and I put these balancers on my bike. His bike does not have these balancers. We then went out for a ride.
We took a ten mile loop going on different terrains with different speeds and some freeway driving. We then exchanged bikes and did the same loop again. Both of us could not see any difference at all in any road vibration, stability or difference between the two bikes. I also could not tell any difference in the handling of my Goldwing before I put these balancers on my bike.
We again tried this same road test again after we had 5,000 on our new tires. Again, there was no difference between the bikes at all. There was also no difference in the tire ware between the two bikes.
I really wanted to feel a difference on my bike because I had spent a lot of hard earned money for these balancers. My advice is to save your money and buy something you actually need for your bike.
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
