Hi All,
Pulled my SWing out of the garage this evening to run it in place just to warm it up.  Had been nearly a month since last ridden so thought I'd "juice" it up some.  While running it on the center stand, I throttled to about 50 mph and held it there for some time.  I noticed an annoying amount of vibration out of the "darkside" wheel assembly.  

Never had it balanced when I had it installed and never really "felt" it out on the road. I was wondering if that "Ride-On" material that some have spoken of would do me any good.  Maybe smooth things out a bit.  Any ideas??

Could it be that the tire needs to warm-up with weight & use to regain some flexibility after sitting on one spot for such a time? Somewhat akin to the way NASCAR and F1 etc drivers need to warm their tires. Even though those tires use entirely different rubber compounds, nevertheless they need to warm up to become effective. 

On the other hand, given that it's probably been a bazillion degrees there in Oklahoma lately, maybe the tire is melting and that contact patch is becoming a contact puddle.

So, go out for a ride and let us know what happens.

One question, has the tire have any Nylon in it's construction? remembering they would develop that problem when left to set for longer periods, that gave a bit of a rough ride at first. I'm not sure but maybe Nylon isn't used any longer in tires.

If tire is round after warm up ride, "Ride On" should balance it, otherwise throw tire away.
