  • Tyre balancing in Malaga? Where

    So I got my new tryres. Dunlop GPR70's.

    Awesome tyres and I extremely happy with them. However, starting at 160 kmh (on the track of course) the bike shakes like FK and wants to throw me off. I have already taken them back to the shop that fitted them and had them balanced once already. Problem is I work in Malaga and I dont have time to be going into North Perth again to get them looked at. And I dont really trust their balancing efforts now anyway.

    Is there somewhere in Malaga that someone can recommend to balance / inspect my tryes (not One On One cause they are booked out for a month and cant do it).

    There's a ducati mob near me somewhere, perhaps protwin? They might be able to help.

        slightly off topic but....I got my tyres change a couple of weeks ago...fitted the wheels back onto bike with new tyres on last weekend and noticed my wheel weights were gone!! i only noticed because they were taped over for racing.....and nope definetely not there....why would they take them off for fitment of tyres? and do i need to go back to the shop and ask for replacements? cheers

          Maybe the new tyres were better balanced, so the weights weren't required? Not every tyre is going to need the same weights in the same spots.

            Wheel weights should by default, come off before balancing a new tyre, otherwise you'll end up with a bazillion weights after a few tyre changes.

              That would be a fairly big imbalance to notice it at 160k's.

              Does it do it every time you do 160k's?

                Every time exaclty. Starts at 160 and by 190 it wants to throw me off.

                All I know is: Before new tyres = fine, after new tyres = shithouse.

                  If your happy to travel down to where I am, I can balance them for you. You can watch me do it, and see that it is done correctly, then, if you go and find that it still occurs, it can't be a wheel balance problem. I'd also look at a few other things as well while we were doing it that may cause it... i'e wheels/rims installed in the right direction, rear wheel alignment etc.....

                  send me a pm.

                    Probably should have bought smoething better like an old suzi, i know the gt range are good and the gs shaft drive model are perfect.

                      Assuming the bike the VTR in your AVtar I would suggest you have a head stem bearing wheel bearing or really crap suspension setup issue. Have you ridden it at the track at these speeds before the tyre's got changed? balanceing is only really good for the first 1000kms or so and I doubt a tyre off the rack is so out of wack to cause the issues you are talking about. Yes maybe a bit of vibration but not trying the throw you off.
