Try using Dynabeads, no ugly weights on your brand new finish ;-)

Thanks Rog

MWS do have a manufacturing and rebuild facility in the UK, but presumably it is cheaper for them to source where labour is cheaper.

I thought about the dry beads but thought it was something that could work it’s way into the valve stem. Probably just thinking to much but I believe that Murphy is on the payroll.

When I bought 72 spoke wires for My DHC I wanted Powder Coating. Dayton Wire Wheel suggested painting instead. Mine are painted, by Dayton and look good and seem to be holding up just fine.

I was very skeptical, but they do work. Ran them for a long time on my bmw k1600gtl.

Next tire change, or if I need a rebalance I will try them.
