Details

Avoid the expense, downtime and trouble of arranging tire changing services at a shop and gain the satisfaction of knowing the job was done perfectly (and is ready just when you need it). With this balancer and a couple of tire irons (plus a bead breaker for tubeless tires) anyone can get a precision balanced tire in a few minutes. Slowly spin, mark the low spot, repeat, add (tape it on) a temporary weight, spin, mark, repeat, re-weight, spin, repeat, etc… When wheel always stops at random points, securely attach the required weights and the job is finished. Ultra-low friction bearings make the process very sensitive to the smallest change in weight and position for super accurate results. Finely finished cantilever frame is easier to use than a conventional stand: lock the axle to a wheel and set the bearings into the saddles on the stand. Save time and money while getting the satisfaction of doing it yourself. Definitely a nice balance. Optional cup and cone type adapter fits most wheels used on single sided swing arms. 14mm axle also allows use of standard BMW Paralever wheel adapters (available from BMW). Strong frame and a durable gray powder coated finish make this a valued shop tool that will be a pleasure to use for years. Measures 18”×20.5”×10”. 10 lbs.

Why a Cantilever Wheel Balancer?

Years ago we sold a conventional wheel balancer. Big bolted-together sections of extruded aluminum, designed and made by a retired machinist. It worked great but was a little hard to store. Eventually the retired machinist stopped making them and we wanted an easier-to-store solution which didn't require borrowing extra jack-stands or chairs. Nobody had ever produced a cantilevered balancer. This one turned out better than we hoped...and remains completely unique. A few years ago legendary Harley Davidson flat track tuner Bill Werner (...see the AMA Hall of Fame) bought one and later reported: "Someone's finally come up with a better, smarter tool for balancing wheels. It's great!" You'll enjoy using this tool, even if you're not tuning pro race bikes. It's easier than other types, and ultra-accurate.
