F8GS tire balancing question

I never balance the knobbies I use on my KTM EXC (w. rimlocks) or on my Honda XR650R (w/o rim locks) but I thought it may be a good idea to balance the fron tire of the F8 (TKC 80) so 20 grams did the job. I did not balance the rear TKC (150/70/17) and for me everything was fine till a mechanic from the nearby garage stopped by. He said I will run into trouble. I said I did not balance the Michelin Anakee and it was fine, same with K60. He meant that this was pure luck and happened by sheer chance and the TKC will cause wobbles and so on...

I admit I am a bit worried now. What do u think?

Thanks Steve
