  • Dynabead Install

    On that other forum, a member posted a neat little 'how to' for installing Dynabeads quickly. It involved using a small bottle and some PVC tubing.

    I replicated this, in about 5 minutes, using a prescription bottle and some 3/8" OD/1/4" ID PVC tubing. Here's a video installing 3oz of Dynabeads in about 6 seconds.

      A small cheap engraving tool will vibrate them in just as fast. But the medicine bottle is a cool different way. One guy I know just uses the tube and fills it up with the beads and shoots a small blast of air in the tube, same result.

        I did the 'fill the tube' with the current CT on the bike now....works great when you learn the 'secret' to success

          I just use a section of clear hose about 4 feet long, dump the beads into the hose out of their little bottle(save bottle for purchase of bulk beads) then hit the hose gently with a bit of air. Rock them around in the hose a bit and they zip right in there.

          High air pressure is only gonna blow the hose off, and create a bead filled roller rink in your garage, you just gently puff the hose with air and get the beads unjammed and in they go.

            Nice trick...when I was using the beads, I would just put one side of the tire on the rim, pour the beads in the tire, then put the other side of the tire on the rim...also I found that I could drill a hole with a hole saw in the tire I was replacing & remove the beads to use again...yea I am cheap.

              Not cheap, just knowing when to recycle.

                Prior to this, I always put the Dynabeads in with their applicator, slowly twisting and turning the bottle to get a small stream of beads pouring in, trying to avoid a blockage and using a little blast of air when a blockage did occur.

                I saw the long tube method on YouTube, was going to try it until I saw this method and decided to experiment.

                One advantage I see with the bottle method, if you get a bit of a blow back from too much air, any beads that come back just get captured in the bottle.


                The beads I used in the video were previously used in a tire, so yes I recycle them.

                  The *real* trick in the whole process....it's not what mechanism you get the beads in with, but how that tire and valve stem is positioned. The wheel assembly being tilted like that helps the flow of the beads; less likely to 'wad up' in the valve body, especially at the curve.
