There are different tire balancers:
Manually rotating tire and using gravity (or fluid) to identify the heavy side of the tire
Also known as spin balancing like your auto tires
Most people do not ask if their motorcycle shop statically or dynamically balances their tires. I believe (no facts) that most shops statically balance their tires.
Different static tire balancers create different "cones" to deal with different tires.
For example the No-Mar tire balancer ( http://www.nomartirechanger.com/products/9 ) has four sets of "cones". So if your motorcycle shop has the right right setup and "cones" they can balance your tire.
The Marc Parnes balancer provides the most "cones" compared to any other manufacturer (which I do consider a disadvantage)... but from what I have read/studied their balancer is very
accurate and easy
