BMW Motorcycle Wheel Balancer

by Marc Parnes Products

BG12 BMW Wheel Balancer Shown

There can be a tremendous savings when installing tires yourself. Tires can be purchased at lower prices over the internet or by mail order as well as the savings that can be had by mounting and balancing them yourself. Besides that, you will know it has been done right.

One of the challenges encountered doing it yourself is being able to balance the wheel assembly easily and effectively. A motorcycle tire balancer is often expensive, takes up a lot of room and in the case of BMW, requires a special rear wheel adaptor which is available from the dealer at a premium price.

The BMW Portable Motorcycle Wheel Balancer pictured above addresses all of these problems.
  • Extremely accurate running on precision low friction shielded ball bearings.
  • Simple to use. Please review the Motorcycle Wheel Balancer Instructions.
  • DOES NOT require a Dealer supplied rear wheel adaptor.
  • Portable, it fits in your tool box drawer or tankbag.
  • Durable, CNC machined from billet 6061-T6 aircraft aluminum with a tool steel axle
  • And cost effective.
Technical specs
  • Overall size - 12" x 1"
  • Weight - Approx. 1 lbs
  • Bearings - Double shielded ball bearings
  • Axle - Tool Steel 12" x "
  • Material - 6061-T6 aircraft aluminum

Please click on the thumbnails below to view the balancer in operation.

*International Shipping. Shipping within the USA is free. To all other countries please specify First Class Mail or Priority. Priority is faster and comes with a tracking number. All shipments are insured for the full amount. Claims cannot be filed until 45 days from the ship date and 60 days when shipping to Italy. In addition they do not insure shipments to the following countries so we will not accept orders from these countries as well. They are: Afghanistan, Algeria, Angola, Belarus, Bosnia, Burma, Burundi, Congo, Cote d Ivoire, Ivory Coast, Croatia, Cuba, Congo, Herzegovina, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Liberia, Libya, Moldova, Montenegro, Myanmar, Nigeria, North Korea, Paraguay, Russia, Serbia, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Syria, Togo, Yeman, Zimbabwe.

 Canadian Customers Please Note: When ordering balancers or a combination of smaller tools I urge you to take advantage of Priority Shipping. It is much faster than First Class and includes a tracking number so we can find it if it gets delayed which unfortunately happens in Canada fairly often.

The Famous "Shipping and Handling" Game

We don't play the Shipping and Handling game. Most sites these days advertise one price and then get you with an excessive shipping and add-on handling charge during the checkout procedure. They figure if you've gotten that far you'll probably just go for it. We think that's sneaky business so all of our prices to the US include shipping right to your door. For delivery outside of the US please refer to the International Shipping prices above.
