Motorcycle Wheel Balancing

We use the Abba Super Pro Wheel Balancer for wheel balancing. This has an accuracy of 1 gram and is used by many race circuit garages and main dealerships, so you get an accurate balance every time. Our team can balance all motorcycle wheels, front and rear, and have a staged adapter to suit all popular sizes of wheel bearings. We also have a single sided adapter for balancing single sided swing arm model wheels that do not have the bearings in the rear wheel, for example, VFR’s, Ducati’s, BMW’s, Triumphs. With four additional bearings on the wheel balancer, this allows for almost friction free, very accurate balancing and uses a variety of adhesive weights. You have the choice of silver or gloss black weights to help blend in well with darker rims.
