That is just regular static balancing. Right? What's different doing it on a motorcycle stand?

Static balance only compensates for up and down imbalance.


A dynamic balance compensates for lateral forces as well. There are adapters for the Hunter Balancers for motorcycle wheels. I cannot convince my work to purchase one, but I'd love tohave one since we also have load-verience balancers(applies up to 400lbs of pressure on the tire as it spins and measures imbalance in the cord structure.

my last set of tires was balanced with a balancer similar to this. I know some guys that don't even balance their moto tires and have no problems

Yes this is static balancing and it is by FAR superior to any other method - period. Flame away boys and girls, but that is the way it is.
