    Tire balancer

    Anyone here have a tire balancer I could use? The CBR needs tires in the worst way, and I'd like to put em on myself to save the $$$ on M&B.

    I balanced mine using two coolers and two pieces of angle iron and my axles. It worked great!

    Ya need 2 jack stands and a microphone... (or the axle)

    Also- get tape weights for free at any tire place- say that they're for your bike and they'll give you a 3oz strip. After 8 months, I have yet to lose a single weight.
    Not a shred of evidence exists in favor of the idea that life is serious.
