After Two Years - Exceptional!

I first had the Centramatics installed on my '05 Goldwing when I replaced the E3 with an Avon (not so sure that was a great decision). One year later (and one year ago) I traded up to a '12 and had the dealer put them on my new bike. Now, 11 months later, I have 10k on the original tires and they are just starting to cup. I'm not sure how much of the credit is due the Centramatics and what should be credited to the Bridgstones.

I will say this, as soon as I installed them on the '05 I felt a noticeable difference in the smoothness of the ride. My 2012 has been nothing but smooth, up until about 9700 miles on the front tire when it just started to cup. I am convinced this is one of the best investments I have made for the bike.

Tops

Its been a couple of years now with this product we are still getting around 20K out of each set (B/S), in tropical heat, harsh & mostly straight roads, very good in these conditions.

Like new again

I'm hard to impress but these balancers are awsome. It's like having a life time spin balance. My rear tire has about 13000 miles and my front has 17000 and there starting to feel lose in the corners and the back was humming when you lean in the turns. Now with the Centramatic those same tires feel like a new set, cornering feels safe and secure, and the humming is going away. I usually get 15 to 16000 on the back, I can't wait to see if it goes longer. I have Dunlop E3's now, which I like best for milage but the price has jumped up so now I'm going to try Bridgestones.

Installed at Wing Ding 34

Then I rode back to New Jersey from Ft Wayne Indiana! All I can say is Wow! They smooth out my 2012 Wing. And for me they do make turn in easier and slow speed handling better. 4 days before I went to Wing Ding I put new tires on so I can't yet speak about treed life. But I can say this I got 7k out of my tires that came with the bike so I'm looking to get many many more miles out of these with the Centramatic installed. But the smoothing out and handling was felt immediately! You can't go wrong with these...

Extraordinaire.

Quand j'ai changé mes pneus j'ai installe les wheel balancers.J'ai maintenant roule 20000 KM,je ne croit pas faire plus de millage avec mes pneus mais je constate qu'il ne se forme plus de bosse ce quidonne une meilleure adherence donc plus securitaire.When i change my tire, i instal the wheel balancers.I already drive around 15000 miles and i dont think that i will make more millage with my tire but there is no more bump on the surface that's result by a better grip whit the ground and safer ride.

Such a Great Business

I ordered the Gold Wing Centramatic Stainless Steel Wheel Balancers. I made a mistake and ordered the trike and not but bike kit. I called and they said just send the order back and that they would send me the bike kit and credit my wrong order. Wingstuff did what they promised. The Centramatic Balancers work like a charm. They really smooth out the vibrations going down the road on the bike. Seems to make it really easy to make turns with the balancers on the bike. I put on a new set of Dunlap E3's so will have to see what the centramatic balancers does reference cupping.

Very pleased as of now

I just had them installed at Lehmanns Bikes and Trikes in Boggstown Indiana, with new Elite 3's I have to say the ride home was ever so smooth and the low speed wobble that is built into the the GL1800 is virtually gone, at 35 mph with cruise control on, I released the bars (keeping hands in close proximity of course) it was 99% gone still an occasional hint, but not the bar chattering and the feeling of loss of control that was there before... Thanks Art for installing and Centramatic for making such a product... Best money spent to date on the 2010 wing... Very very very pleased to support the words of praise on this site...I am not a paid respondent, just a very satiisfied customer. (centramatic please snd check to.... ) Nah just kidding they are wonderful and well worth the cost. Ride safe and be free.
