OOO. OOOO!

I'm going to tell you my balancing secret. I learned it from a very old man in Texas when I got a flat tire riding an XR 650 R from Tijuana to Atlanta one year.

It was quite the experience.

He changed out my rear flat for me and started to mix this concoction. He put a big glop of that green slime stuff into a cup and then mixed in about 25% lanolin oil. I asked him what that was? He said "It's my own invention. It's a liquid balancing fluid like the $150.00 a bottle truck driver stuff. You just put 75% Slime and 25% lanolin oil that prevents the slime from coagulating into a mixture and poor squirt it into the valve with the stem out and fill her up."

He went on to tell me that it not only balances perfectly, but protects the rubber in the tires because of the Lanolin. Said he'd used it on bikes as fast as Busas for years and never had a complaint.

I rode that XR 650 R home on slab and he sure was right. It was dead nuts perfect at any speed with no static balancing at all.

Pretty cool.

Just an FYI.

I've heard the same thing with a cup of antifreeze.

Meh, antifreeze wouldn't be so hot in tires as small as the BR's. BIG tires, yeah, like on tractors (b/c of moisture and condensation and sitting outside and shizz during the winter, it's NOT for balancing).

For one thing, I wouldn't there's enough mass in a cup of antifreeze to balance the tire. I don't think a cup would even make the 1.5-2.0 oz. of weight (the recommend amount of weight for bead-balancing) we need for our small tires. The slime/lanolin emulsion is, essentially, thicker and heavier by volume, so it wouldn't take near as much.

Just my brain bouncing it around, for the moment. I could be wrong, as I haven't weighed out the volumes of either.

1 cup antifreeze weighs about 9 ounces.

ding-ding! Ok, so I'm way off! :lol:

Hmmm, so, a cup would most likely be too much, weight-wise, but volume-wise? Dammit, now I'm gonna have to go ponder some math.

Thanks, Paul... :lol:

Long before Slime, there was another liquid (or semi-liquid) leak stop that billed itself as a tire balancing aid.

I briefly used it, (like 30 years ago?), but it was temperature sensitive.....on a cold 45 degree day, it would glomp up and stick in one spot (the bottom of the parked tire) and the lope would nearly buck you off the bike or beat you to death for the first 5-6 miles, until the tire got hot enough to make the stuff flow and redistribute itself around the tire.

Basically it was a warm weather solution, IMO.
