PJ1 Balance Plus

Okay, so I took the 3 minutes that it takes to put the "PJ1 Balance Plus" in the front tire. I really wanted to see how much of a difference it would make with the front end wobble I have on the Yamaha Vision. Supposedly this PJ1 product will automatically balance your tires, even beyond what the shop is capable of doing. Kind of like fine tuning the balance job that the shop did. Well I went for a 10 +/- Mile ride with the green goopy stuff installed. I did not notice any difference. I guess I will be replacing the Head Bearings this Summer with the Tapered Roller Bearings that so many have recommended. Oh well, it was worth a try.

No tire balancing will fix anything other than an out-of-balance wheel. I've used PJ1 for years and never had to balance a tire.
Well, as it turned out, the head bearings were loose. I replaced them and made them good & tight. Problem solved.
