Ask Woody or ANY motorcycle tech how many wheels come in with the stick-on wheel weights missing, having falled off 4,000 miles or so ago with the rider being completely oblivious.

I have mine balanced but I'm not sure it's completely necessary. I have never balanced a tire on my dirt bikes in my life.
