Balancing beads?

Anyone had any luck or headaches with these tire balancing beads. I think one is called DYNA but there is one called COUNTERACT that is supposed to cling in place longer like at traffic lights. My neighbor told me Harley's are now coming from the factory with it. Thanks...

I have used Dyna beads for the last two years, on my bike and trailer.
Have had no issues, and improved tire life..

Dyna Beads are relatively new to me, so I tried them in one bike, then when the other bike needed new tires, they got Dyna Beads too... no complaints.

But I should add that though my dealer carries them and installs them if the customer wants them, but does not recommend them.

I use them as well. They help balance at over 30 mph... Most shops only balance wheels + tires to 30-35 mph.
