Original dunlops, no dyna beads 7500 miles
2nd set dunlops no dyna beads 10,000 badly cupped
1st set of Avon Cobras with Dyna Beads- 13k- front and rear tires worn evenly. Could have gotten at least 2k more on the front.
The Cobras with 13K are still on the spare rims. Don't know what the insides look like.
Bike has always rode much smoother with the dyna beads.

thanks again to all! rick and fabster I called Conti, they checked w/Germany, no prohibition against dynabeads! however if they do cause damage-then no warranty
keeping the dynabeads, getting the Conti custom attack put on the front tomorrow, already have the 240 on the back for a couple of days now.

Use them on all my bikes with tubes and tubeless tires. My heritage springer had the dreaded front end wobbles when slowing down from 50 to 35 mph. Adjusted rocker bearings and neck bearings, was better but still had noticeable wobble. Put in dynabeads and the wobble is now gone completely, so I DO believe that they work.

I have them in the rear, soon to be in the front, and it's stable as fast as I've had it, well over 125. Bridgestones front/rear. I live in the rural west and cruise between 85 and 100 mile after mile with quite a bit of 110 +.
They were recomended to me by a friend who has used them for quite a while on his BMW's and a Triumph. He spends quite a bit of time over 120.

thanks again all-got the front tire installed to go with the back. dynabeads front 1oz. and back 2oz. ride seems fine, tires look great! looking forward to breaking them in on some twisties, then steppin' it up from there. high-tech tires that grab and look great-they even mention the V-Rod on their site for the race attack custom which is what I got:
The ContiRaceAttack Custom in the size 240/40 ZR 17 will fit all custom bikes with a wheel rim size of 8 inches. This includes all Harley Davidson V-Rods (including the special models) and also the brand new V-Rod Muscle.

Need New Tires for 2009 Night Rod

Sorry to cut into this conversation but I don't use the site nearly enough to know how to post this in the right place. I'm at about 8000 miles and need new tires...looking at both the Metzeler Marathons, or Avon Cobra's. Any advice? One better than the other? Something better than both of these choices? Thanks for anyone's advice.

I went from the Michelin Scorchers to the Continental Custom Race Attacks...but didn't just spin the 'wheel of fortune' to decide. good info on the Conti's here and on Conti's website led me to that choice.

Both are good tires. I'm partial to the Avons but there are plenty of people here equally partial to Metzelers.

I have had them on a 1400 Intruder, HD Deuce and V-Rod. No problems and a smooth ride.
As far as the comment about interior damage to the tire-- These are glass beads that go to one place in the tire. Do you think glass beads could possibly cause more damage than asphalt does to the outside of the tire. LOL

I'm glad I stumbled across this while browsing...I had completely forgotten to actually GET some dynabeads and put them in my newly powder coated wheels. Found a local shop that has them, and going to pick them up at lunch!
