Life's About Balance: Why Centramatic Might Be the Right Fit For You


I bought these about 18 months ago when I put new tires on my 2010 wing, and have put almost 14,000 miles on them. I haven't noticed much difference in the ride, but I have noticed a big difference in the wear. No cupping in the tires, and I still have lots of tread left!

The longer bolts make re-installing the seat a much simpler task. These should come with EVERY new Goldwing from the factory!
The seat brackets are very good, install easily, and make for easy tie down of helmets, bags, etc. on the back seat.

Worth having.

I've had mine for over 4 years now, and it's holding up all right. The metal rim is very sturdy, and the mesh cup holder is still intact.
Put a little loc tight on the thumb screw to keep it from vibrating loose, and all is well.

Overall, a pretty good product.

This bag fits very nicely on the luggage rack, fastens down securely, and holds a lot of stuff! It easily holds 2 light jackets, 2 heavier coats, and 2 rain suits. Or you can put 2 full face helmets inside if you don't have room in the trunk.

The smaller pockets are handy for cell phones, binoculars, maps, sun screen, or other misc. items.

The rain cover works great, fits well. and stays on at highway speeds.

Overall, a good product.

After putting these on, I noticed a smoother ride and better handling at both lower speeds and higher speeds.
Have had no problem with wobble, cupping, or irregular tire wear. My tires are lasting a lot longer, which saves me money and makes me happy! A happy rider has more fun... Right? Plus, piece of mind is a good thing to have when you're far from home.

Two of my buddies have ridden my bike, and told me they noticed the difference immediately between mine and theirs. We are now comparing tire life, and I'm winning!

So far, I am happy with these and recommend them.

This brace works well. Stiffens up the front end for better handling/cornering, improves tire wear and reduces cupping. added this with a set of centramatic wheel balancers, and the ride has improved dramatically.

This fork brace is a step in the right direction. A bit pricey, but how much are you willing to pay for piece of mind?

Tried this product, but was not impressed. Did not seem to work any better than most of the over the counter products from the auto parts store.
Did not produce a significant shine, and did not protect any better than any other polish.

I get better results from Never Dull.

Does the job nicely. Saved my face and neck going through 600 miles of New Mexico in 25 degree weather last December!

Snugs up the helmet a little bit, but not too uncomfortable. Seems to be made well, and easily washable.

Overall, a pretty good product!

I bought this to go with my vest, and I must say it works pretty good! Keeps your neck about 15-20 degrees cooler than outside temperature and lasts a couple hours.

When one side gets warm, just flip it over and you're back in business.

Easy to re-charge in cool water for about 5 minutes.

Nice to have on those hot days on the bike or off!

This stuff is amazing! Very easy to use, removes oxidation, dirt, grease, and does not harm aluminum wheels.
Follow directions and spray on, leave on about 10 seconds, and spray off. For tougher dirt, use a scotch brite. Follow up with some good aluminum polish, and you're done!

Highly recommend this!

I bought this battery in February last year to replace a smaller Shorai battery that lasted only 13 months. (my fault, I bought the wrong size).
This one is going strong so far with no problems after about 12000 miles, and going from cold Illinois to warm Arizona. Fast starts, and runs all the accessories on my wing without a hitch!
The only down side is they sell the charger separately.
Fortunately, the first one I bought came with the charger, so it worked out well for me, although I haven't needed to use it yet.
Overall a satisfactory product.

I bought this to replace another cooler brand that I had for 12 years hoping to get an upgrade. The cooler seems to cool okay, but it is very small and tight inside, and very difficult to fit a six pack of cans side by side with any sort of ice or ice pack.
Forget about water bottles, as they are too tall and the top is very difficult to zip with ice packs inside.

The 12 pack may be more roomy and probably the better choice, but the six pack is WAAAAY to small. Save your money!
