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 MV Augusta Portable Motorcycle Wheel Balancer pictured above addresses all of these problems.
Extremely accurate running on precision low friction shielded ball bearings.

*International Shipping. Shipping to the US via Priority Mail is free. To all other countries please specify First Class Mail or Priority Mail. 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 Mail 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.
MV uses front wheel bearings with an ID of 25 mm or 35 mm which determines the kit you will need. There isn't a lot of data available but I did find the following:
25 mm bearing: F4 1000 2010-12, Brutale 920-990-1090, Rivale, F3 675-800, Dragster. 35 mm bearing: All F4 except where noted above, Brutale 750-910-989-1078. If you find a model I didn't mention or something different please let me know.
If in doubt check the bearing type on the bearing seal or measure the axle where it goes through the bearing. Type 6005 = 25 mm and Type 6907 = 35 mm.
Application All kits are complete for the motorcycle specified. No additional parts are required.
Configuration All kits include axle, bearing blocks and cones unless otherwise noted.
Adhesive Balance Weights are available in strips. Each steel strip consists of 12 5 gram segments, enough to do at least two wheels. Postage is prepaid when included with a balancer order. If you need weights separately please leave feedback with the quantity you would like and your zip code.
If you have application or special mounting questions please leave feedback.
