These guys make this stuff sound so good, I'm thinking it's good enough to drink. I know nothining about it, but it looks like one of those "too good to be true" thingy's. I had never heard of it, but when I called my local Honda dealer to see if they stocked Dyna-Beads, he said they said no. But, we carry Ride-On Tire Balancer and Puncture Repair. "A lot of guys swear by it"!

I think I will keep looking for Dyna-Beads.

I've used it in 3 sets of Avon Venom Xs. It seems to work balance wise as my '83 rides vibration free at all speed ranges. As far as a puncture sealer, I don't know as I've never had anything get stuck in the tire, knock on wood.:)
It doesn't create any issues when changing out tires as the rims wipe clean with a damp rag.

I have got 12k+ running 45 lbs front and rear. The ride is firm but bike is very nimble and unaffected by tar strips.

I tried it and it does balance the tires but it dried up in a strip about 2" wide around the inside center of the tire so how it would seal a puncture outside that area I am skeptical. Berrymans tire sealer will do the same thing for a lot less money, balance the tire and it stays liquid and will not corrode the rim, and it will seal a puncture.

You need to watch the video on the web sight. There is a certain cross section area that RideOn protects, if the correct amount for the size tire it's being put in is used.
You are correct, it does not protect outside that area, not does any other brand. I know of nothing that will save a flat tire if the side wall is punctured.
Not sure what you mean by dried up?
I thought it stayed some what vicious so it would not only seal a puncture up to the size stated but, also "moves" around some to keep the tire balanced as it wears.
No vested interest in this company. I have been using it for years, mainly to balance the tires while also enjoying protection from the most common causes of flat tires.
Never heard of Berryman's-will check it out. Thanks

I did watch the video and put in the recommended amount.
The stuff was dray and solid, I kept the tires around for a couple years to remind me to never buy that brand again, starts with a B and ends with stone. The stuff never moved from the way it was when I took the tires off. I am not the only one who got the same result.

OK, proper amount was installed.
What kind of movement did you expect, if the tires were removed and were just sitting around?
If there is any "movement" of the product at all, I'm confident it is a very slight movement and takes place at highway speeds with the riding temps increases induced during sustained speeds, not when sitting still.
Whom else has had this exerience, since you must be aware of more from your post?
Sorry, for your experience, I can only state, again, after years of use, I have had no adverse problems, ever!
Have reviewed the web sight for the Barryman's product. I can't find any info about it being a balancer, only a sealant. Did I miss something?
Spring time seems to have finally arrived here:claps: I'm going riding:waving:

I would expect as a liquid it would run to the lowest point, gravity still works here. As it was no longer liquid it stayed exactly as it was for at least a couple years.


"Whom else has had this exerience, since you must be aware of more from your post?"

Don't remember, look up the old threads on it.

"Sorry, for your experience, I can only state, again, after years of use, I have had no adverse problems, ever!"

Didn't say I had a bad experience, just that it couldn't possibly seal a puncture more than an inch off center.

"Have reviewed the web sight for the Berryman's product. I can't find any info about it being a balancer, only a sealant. Did I miss something?"

Berrymans doesn't claim it is a balancer but physics applies to it as much as any other product.

Use what works for you.
