    Mounting and balancing.


    Any buddy have a good place to get a set of tiers mounted and balanced in the western mass are. Money is really tight and I can't pay $40 per tire. I'm trying to get my kawasaki all set for next weekend.

    Oh he hooked me up good last time I was there.
    My issue is I'm taking the penguin school on Friday to get on track. I'm just worried about if I will have enough time to get it all done.

    I'll be at Palmer MA Sunday for Tony's Track Days, if that's close to you, bring your wheels down. $20/wheel mounted and balanced, assuming you have your own tires.

    I tried this once and missed the first session. Was doing the track experience that day.. Not sure I'd risk missing school. I'd want tires mounted and ready night before.

    My advice is to buy some irons and get to it. Changing race rubber manually is easy. Carcasses are super thin and easy to work, even cold.
    Never bothered to balance my tires.

    I remember this generated a lot of debate back in the day.

    Meh balancing really doesn't take any time and the equipment to do it costs almost nothing.

    I bought this. I used it exactly once. Anyone want it with a stack of weights for $50?

    Jay, I'll take it. Want a second one to keep a bit more accessible in the RV. Bring it to Palmer this weekend?
