Anyone running this with tubes?

I run them with my sumo/ tube set up on my 12 ktm 500 exc they worked great for me. I tried them with my Nuetech Tubliss system for my dirt set up and they got inside my outer shell of the tubliss system and blew the inner bladder and the outer shell. I was trying to get away of putting a ton of wheel weights on the frt wheel that does not have room for them.

Dynabeads rock! I have had them in the last three sets of tires on my adventure bikes. They balance the wheels like nothing else can. It's like riding on glass. Super smooth and balanced. No kidding!

Been running the same dynabeads in tubes for the last two sets of tires.
Works great, no tube failures due to wear or anything like that.

?Rideon v.s. Dynabeads

Interesting discussion. I was just about to do Rideon in my tubes to get balance and also provide (some) leak and puncture protection. Can anyone comment on the pros and cons of the two systems?

I use Dynabeads in a set of BS Trail Attacks (No chicken strips, these tires GRIP the pavement). At slow speeds around town , say 30 mph or less, the front wheel feels oval. It is a bit disconcerting but smoothes out completely when the speed picks up. In the future I will use tradional ballance methods, I'm too lazy to change out the tubes. The rear tire feels fine with the beads.

I have Ride On in my dirt tubes and Dynabeads in my tubeless tires. I don't know how much Ride on will actually balance because the stuff is pretty thick. All I can say is I don't have wheel weights on my knobbies, but then again most people don't. The Dynabeads work really, really well and I have more to put in my truck as soon as the balance goes out in them.

Knowing what Francois did at Dualsporttouring with some Ride On I would use that if you have tubed tires and just use wheel weights. To see how well it actually worked, he took an ice pick, stabbed the tube several times, and had it seal each time. He broke out the tools and eventually found out that it would not seal a 1/2" hole left by a drill bit. I would rather have the sealing quality of Ride On over the balancing of Dynabeads in a tubed tire.

Been using them for for about 5 years now.
Front and rear tubes TKCs/908s/Mefos
No problems other than when you get a flat on the road/trail you cant rebalance the tire until you put more beads in. Not easy on in the field IMO.

Havent had a problem with beads sticking in the valves but I really haven't noticed if they did.

I use them with tubed tires. 2oz. in front, 3oz. in the back. They work great so far.

I have them in all my bikes (18) and have had them at 165 at Motorsports Ranch (Cresson) and in tubed racebikes (Aprilia SXV550) and in the 37" M/T on my van with zero problems. The only tires they do not work in are wide low profile tires, they will still balance radially but the tire will have a lateral imbalance.

Ditto above satisfied users..... really smoothed out 70MPH on the freeway.

Got mine from: (....with an excellent instruction sheet/there are some tricks to getting them inside tubes--mainly a slow feed and patience)
