Dealer mount, but no balance?
Okay, I normally do my own work on the airheads, but I really hate dealing with tires...
Thought I would save some frustration, so I took the wheels and tires to my local dealer (wheels were off the bikes). They did a fine job mounting all the tires, but I'm nearly 100% sure they didn't balance them!
Reason: all the old weights are still in the same spots, and the R100S front wheel bounces like mad at about 90 mph. It certainly didn't do that before with the old tires.
When I noticed the old weights, I thought they might've used some high-tech balancing method (beads?) but now I think they just didn't balance them at all.
I can balance them myself, and that's what I'm going to do. Thought I was saving myself some time, but this is not doing much to help my phobia about not doing the work myself. I guess I didn't specifically ask for a balance, but figured that was part of the process.
Just seems odd, has anyone else had this experience with a BMW dealer? A mount with no balance? Am I missing something? Is it because I just brought the wheels in, not the bikes? I don't see why that would make a difference, but maybe it does...
