Hey Fox, I've never heard of it, but it doesn't mean they haven't. I wish I could rid of the shake on my stockers.

I have heard of several people doing this. Their claims is that it works great and bearings tend to last longer for them.

Makes sense to me. Would ATV Tires work on a normal tire balancing machine or would they have to have a special application?

From what I have seen used, they use lead buckshot and insert it throught the valve stem with the core removed.

There is also stick on weights, I have used them, they do stay on the inner wheel. I picked up a $60 tire balancer many years ago off of Harbor Freight, works perfect on the atv wheels.

Stick on weights can be used in a couple of different ways. In the automotive tire industry a stick on weight can be put on the inside of the wheel and just put in teh center. The tire balancer would just be told that this is how it is to get its measurement. However, this method doesn't do the best of jobs. However, on an ATV, this may be your only option. If using stick on weight on an autombile wheel that is severely offset, say like on an acura or honda wheel, you can leave the balancer in normal mode but put stick on weight inside the wheel, placing the weight the machine tells you is for the outside, on the inside of the wheel but as far outward as possible. Then then one it tell you to put on the inner lip stick inside the wheel as far inward as possible.

On an XTR, I honestly doubt you are gonna get much accomplished with balancing. It is an agressive tread tire and should be expected to on asphalt for example, for the rider to feel the agressiveness of the tread, thus making them think it is unbalanced.

Something else to question, is it all 4 or only the front. Are they bouncing up and down or is it a side to side wobble of the handlebars?

Smile Tire shake

Thanks for thr replys, the front tires shake the rear are fine I installed a steering dampner that tool 85% shake out. but I am going to try ITP Baja 8 ply 26" tires soon, We do a lot of semi Desert rides and I recon the Baja tire will float over the top and not dig in as much.
