Motion-Pro makes really nice stick-on weights that are narrower than the ones for cars so they stick on the shoulder without issue. I do the Husky the same way, it takes quite a bit of weight to offset the rimlock. I have it pretty close with internal weights opposite the lock, then can usually get it right on with an ounce or less on the outside.


Oh wow i didn't know it could be this simple! thanks a bunch! Do you always mount and balance your own wheels or just sometimes?

Greatly appreciate it Browneye!
