Counteract Balancing Beads for motorcycles dynamically balance a wheel internally versus wheel weights that are a static balance. When balancing tires via weights the tire never stays balanced for the life of the tire because no ever does go back to get their tire re-balanced. An imbalanced tire will start to wear unevenly, making the tire run at a higher temperature due to friction, shortening its life.
The Counteract Beads provide an automatic, readjusting, trouble-free, lifetime balance of the tire. When they are installed inside the tire the specially coated micro-spheres are distributed throughout the tire through centrifugal force as the wheel rotates. As the force of the out-of-balance spot increases and pulls the suspension in an up and down motion, the inertia causes the beads to move in the opposite direction and rapidly shift until complete wheel assembly is balanced.
Counteract claims to provide a smoother ride and longer lasting tires. Also, form an aesthetic point of view, when using an internal balancer you can rid of ugly wheel weights on your rims especially when most shops have had to go to a less dense metal like zinc or steel to balance their wheels, leaving a bigger footprint of weights on the rim.
How much Counteract do you need for your motorcycle. The company provides a package for 2 tires. The exact amount you need is determined by the vehicle and the tire size, and in some cases the aggressiveness of the tread. The company offers a handy calculator to find out exactly what is recommended for your tire. Counteract does not void any tire warranties: due to their patented technology the beads do not harm the inside of a tire. When removing Counteract from a tire you would never know it was inside.
