when
the wheel
stops.
A. Mark
•Repeat
this
procedure several
t imes.
If
the
wheel stops
of its own accord in
various
positions,
it
is
well
bal·
anced.
•However,
if
the wheel
always
stops
in one position
,
temporarily attach a balance weight on the rim
at the
marked spot with
tape.
•Rotate
the

the
wheel stops
in
this position.
If it

•If the wheel
rotates
and the weight goes up,
replace
the weight with
the next heavier size.
If
the wheel
rotates
and
the weight goes down, replace the weight
with
the
next lighter size.
Repeat
these
steps until
the wheel
remains
at
rest
after
being
rotated
1,4 turn.
•Rotate the wheel another
%
turn and then another
1,4
turn to
see if the
wheel is
correctly
balanced.
•Repeat
the entire procedures as many
t
imes
as
neces-
sary to achieve correct wheel balance.
•To
install
the
balance weights on the
rim,
first
reduce
the tire pressure, pry
the t
ire
bead from
the
rim,
and
then insert the
blade
part of the balance
weight
be·
tween the
rim
and
