Liber T, you might try Dyna Beads. Mine is smooth as silk. I use them in my Battlax and Nokian CT.

I put a CT on the rear of my VTX 1800N.  Didnt work out for me at all.

Took some getting used to as far as handling, especially if I hit a groove in the pavement.

The killer was how it wore out the front tire.

I had a 205 on the rear, that was the widest tire the rim could handle.

After about 1000 miles the tread on the left side of my front tire was gone.  The tread on the right side looked new and unworn.

The only thing I could figure was that the 205 wanted to run flat and I was leaning left to compensate for the camber in the road.

I appreciate the info . I guess I'll give that a try. All the tires in the past have been as you put it smooth as silk including the Valkyrie tire on the rear so I had no need for beads. Where do you get them , how much do you put in , and do they come pre packaged for you?
