    Dyna beads for about 5 years. They work for me

      Dyna beads on my GW work well, even at 120 mph in a sweeper, or straight as well...

        I've had Centramatics since 2011. Love them so far. Had no problems.

          Both seem to have a strong fan base. I have used Dyna Beads and plan to in my next set of tires.

            Dyna beads. Nearly a lifetime of beads for the price of a set of Centramatics. Then again, on a whim I've spent more for less. Guess I'll stay with what's worked for me.

              I've done all three and, as much as I enjoyed the results with the Dyna Beads, my motorcycle was improved even more when I went to the Centramatics. Even the the uneven-ness of the front tire that the Dyna Beads couldn't overcome, the Centramatics front discs took care of and helped my handling.

                Had Centramatics on my 2012 wing when I switched to the C/T.. That might be why I loved that Car tire so much.. It was so much smoother and the front end was like glass on the highway Plus you did not have to beg the shop to "save" your little ceramic beads when get tires on the road...

                I now have dyna beads in my CTX1300 and heading out for a 11500 mile pizza run in 2 weeks.. will let you know how this works have a larger cat tire on this bike than I did on the wing

                  Using dyna beads they work well for me. But i am saving for Centramatics why not get all the tire life possible makes good since to me. Plus from what i have been reading centramatics will help with that dreaded front wheel wopple our wings get.

                    Totally agree,, my centramatics I believe helped me get way better tire life than anything else.. I had almost 30,000 miles on the alpin when the bike totaled. and I still had over 4 / 32 nds tread life left

                      I thought my 2012 Wing could not be smoother until I installed the Centramatics with a new set of tires, major "felt" difference. Better handling, smooth as glass, 5k miles so fare and the tires still look like new! I am very happy as is the shop that installed the tires, no beads to contend with. Very much worth the money spent IMHO.

                          I've used Dyna beads for 6 years now: no more cupping and always a smooth ride. Inexpensive too .

                            Centramatic's. I had all three until the wing was converted to a trike. I still have them on the front axle but I'm told Centramatic doesn't make a set for the rear axle of a trike.

                              I have used dyna beads for many years with no complaints. Can't speak for the centramatics

                                Dyna beads are great. Soooooooooo much cheaper than.Centramatics

                                Centramatics are excellent to, if money doesn't matter

                                  Wow- looks like I'm the outsider here. I'm still using regular ol stick on weights. I've got a box of them in my garage and a static balancer so I can balance my tires when I mount them. Anyone have experience with dyna beads or cetramatics with the slow speed stuff? I would hate to make a switch eventually only to discover that I'm not happy with it when the bike is moving slowly or in skills courses/competitions.

                                    I did the static balancer then added centramatics with new tires, G709 on the front and Alpin PA3 RF on the rear. Like other have mentioned, smooth as glass on good pavement to any speed.
                                    I used to swap a new G709 at every 3rd new rear MC tire. Now with the Alpin, my G709 is almost to the wear bars and the Aplin still looks brand new. With the two centramatics up front the worn G709 has zero cupping and looks as new, just a lot less rubber on the center and from there two the sides.

                                      I have Centramatics on my '08. I don't have anything to compare them with since I had them put on along with a new set of E3's when I bought it. I have heard some folks are bothered by the "swooshing" sound at low speeds...under about 20mph. I hear it, but is not annoying to me at all. Swoosh is smooth!

                                        Dyna Beads have worked for me for a few years. I'm cheap. Someday I'll ride a bike with Centramatics and see. Those with the Centras seem to like em.
