I find they work best with hydrogen, but that's only my own personal experience. The lower weight of the hydrogen means less unsprung weight, and improves traction over bumps. Every little bit helps!

Plus, it looks really cool:

i asked a guy who works on bikes around here what he thought about dyna beads and he doesnt like them be cause to himthey dont make sense. when the wheel is spinning allof the beads are going to go to the farthest spot form the center. not balancing necessarily. the faster you go the harder it pushes out. i can see his point so i am not sure about the beads. he says its shere physics and i say its outta my hands.

You can argue what he thinks happens all day long...but the fact is, those of us that use them, are using them without wheel weights or any other kind of balancing system on our wheels, yet the wheels are smooth and perfectly balanced. They also wear much more evenly, and have reduced cupping.

He may not like them, and they may not make sense to him - but the fact is, they work.

This old Newfie was all excited about the marvels of his thermos bottle. Said that some days his misses gives him hot soup for lunch and the thermos keeps the soup hot. Other days she gives him cold water and the thermos keeps the water cold.

Ask him if it's physics or his perception of physics that leads him to his conclusion.

Yup, his misunderstanding of physics is his problem.

The DynaBeads just plain don't care about the "why", they just do it obediently and keep the wheels smooth running.

Have been using dyna beads in both my VTX 1800 and goldwing and have great results, smooth ride and even wear on the tires. Welcome aboard.
