    I can see 2 wheel weights (greyish block of weight) on front rim (one on each side), but in rear rim I can see only one, I never observed if it was there on another side. Is this an issue?

    Please let me know your inputs.
    I ll try to diagnose myself before going to SVC.
    TIA
    how old are the tires and their condition ? make sure you are maintaining the right tire pressure. set the monoshock at step 3 or 4 (incase it's set to high or lower).

    the wheels are balanced from the factory, and there is no 'set' no. of weights. probably is going to vary from wheel to wheel.. and if you want to know if it is possible the weights come off over a period of time, the answer is yes they could.
    proper way to know is to get them checked/balanced again.. good luck finding a place that balances motorcycle wheels properly.

    Guys, I have a problem.
    The wheel weights on my front wheel came off while I was washing the bike.
    Is it safe to ride my bike in this condition or can I attach the weights myself or should I visit the SC or a tyre shop? (SC and tyre shops aren't open right now so I'm in a bit of a pickle)Name:  Image.jpg

    Nothing to worry. If you can find the spot it came off the rim, like you have a residue left behind, you can use fevikwik or double side tape cut to the exact size of the weight and stick it to the place. If you don't know where it came from, nothing to worry, you can continue to ride like that. The bike's tire is already balanced from the factory (stock tires), so these weights don't make a HUGE difference to your riding. If you can get it balanced after the Covid lockdown, then you can do it. Keep the pickle aside, nothing to worry, enjoy the ride.

    Cheers!

    Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl 'Will you marry me?'
    The girl said, 'NO!'


    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.


    THE END
