Default Re: Wheel Alignment/Balancing : Madhus Enterprises (Langford rd, Bangalore)

The Duke needed a new rubber to roll and Madhus was my first choice to replace the tyre and also to experience the newly introduced 2W tyre balancing. The post by audioholic above tilted me to try the balancing.



I had replaced the front tyre during December from the Metzeler that came along with the bike with a Timsun make. The rear tyre in stock configuration was touching the swing arm and I could not proceed further. Thanks to black12rr who lent me his Michelin which I have used for around 2k kms till date. Somehow I missed the exchange which was promised by the Motocafe guys due to my personal commitments which i finally mamaged to pick and proceeded to Madhus for replacement on saturday. The replacement was a 140 section.

Landed at Madhus at 0920 on saturday anticipating the rush over the weekend. I was welcomed by Mr. Manju who worked at the JC road shop earlier and was attended to promptly.
The bike was parked inside the shop and the rear wheel was dismantled. The paddock stand being used made things easy. The Michelin was removed on the tyre changer and the new Timsun was fixed. The new tyre needed a bit of shove and push as it is an off road tyre and the sidewalls are quire rigid.

Post the installation, the wheel was taken to the balancer and run. The tyre did not require any weights inspite of double checking. The tyre went back in place and the front was taken off. Since the bike has side stand only, a jack was placed to support the bike. I liked the way they attend to the bike.The tyre went onto the balancer and required weights were fixed to balance the wheel. The tyre went back to its place after this.

i did a small ride yesterday where in I felt the bike handled better then before. Since it is a new tyre I have not tried its limits and would like to run for a few more kms post which I can tell about the tyre in the Duke ownership experience thread.



Overall a happy and satisfied customer as always, thanks to the efficient team at Madhus. I would strongly recommend them for such work.
