Motorcycle Repair: How to Static Balance a Motorcycle Tire Wheel on a 2009 Kawasaki KLR 650
**Always follow the instructions in your repair manual when doing repair or maintenance work on a motorcycle. Manuals can be found at the dealer and online.**
Having a Motorcycle Wheel Balancing Stand will help balance a motorcycle rim and tire. Remove the wheel from the motorcycle. Insert the axle included with the balancing stand through wheel hub where the motorcycle axle usually goes. Center the axle, and attach both centering cone on the axle pressing snugly against the wheel hub. Tighten both centering cones and place the wheel and axle on the balancing stand.
Gently spin the wheel. The wheel will spin and stop with the heaviest part of the wheel resting at the bottom of its resting spot. Mark the part of the wheel opposite the heaviest part of the wheel. This is where you will add weights to counter the heaviest part of the wheel and balance the wheel. Add enough weight to the wheel until you can spin the wheel and it does not repeatedly stop at the same spot.
Thanks you for watching!
