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 VFR, requires a special rear wheel adaptor which is available from the dealer at a premium price.

The Honda 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.
  • VFR and Goldwing DO 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 (Universal)
  • Bearings - Double shielded ball bearings
  • Axle - Tool Steel 12" x "
  • Material - 6061-T6 aircraft aluminum

Here is an excerpt from a review done by AngelRideVideos
"The Marc Parnes balancer is an absolute joy to use and makes balancing the wheels so much easier. I should have gotten it years ago. It fits both the FJR and Wing wheels and all I need are a couple of big oil jugs to support it on. This tool proved to be worth it's weight in gold, as it is small and easy to store, and is easy to use and fits just about any wheel. The GL1800 rear wheel does not have an axle, so it was always a challenge to try to balance it. The design of the cones in the Marc Parnes balancer perfectly centers the rear wheel so you can easily balance it. All you need are a couple supporting jack stands or similar device to set the balancer on. The bearings turn easily and exert very low friction, which allows you to balance the tire to within a few grams. On a scale of one to ten, I would give this tool a solid ten for easy of use and reliability. My only regret is not getting one sooner."

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.
