It may be psychological, I do believe the ride was smoother. I like the science behind using balance beads over lead weights. Leads weights are good at one speed. Let me make this clear, I ride a 1500 cc motorcycle and I don't really care about fuel mileage. I don't keep a precise eye on it. A general idea for monitoring the state of engine tune. If my tires wear even throughout their tread life, the balance has been good. If using leads weights you would have to get the wheel rebalanced after half the tread life was worn off. I am on my third set of tires with the balance beads installed. I am sold on them now.
Downshifting and coming to a complete stop I could feel the bike shifting weight. If I was slowing down to make a left turn the balance was off just enough to slightly scare the living sh** out of me. The Superbrace took care of the front-end issues but the back-end weight and balance issue was not solved until I added the Counteract Balancing Beads to both tires. Now, when I downshift to make a turn or come to a complete stop I do not feel the bike's weight shifting and throwing me off balance. This product receives two 5 Star Ratings from me (one for each tire).
Purchased This product at a Rally from Verhulst Bike Tires. I was honestly skeptical of this product at first considering I have always used "lead weights". But the guys from Chrome world were the ones that were selling it and Verhulst was endorsing it and I trust that guys opinion about tires.
