Since the introduction of the world's first dedicated, computerised motorcycle wheel balancer back in the '80s (the now ubiquitous Balco B91), Balco & John Bean have remained at the forefront of balancing technology.
With an unrivalled knowledge of specialist applications and wheel balancing principles, we are able to help you get the most in terms of profitability and performance from the machine best suited to your needs.
There is often confusion and misinformation surrounding the differences between 'single' plane and 'dual' plane wheel balancing.
Basically 'single' plane is really only suitable for narrow wheels, while 'dual' plane is better suited to today's wider rims.
The RS202 is a dual plane (dynamic) electronic balancer built specifically to cater for motorcycle wheels using 16 bit technology. Neat and compact, the unit operates using 'low spin' technology, a method now both ubiquitous and famous throughout the world for motorcycle, car and truck applications. This 'hand spin' operation eliminates the need for expensive motors whilst reducing wear and tear on vital internal parts. The dual plane technology allows wheels as low as 3" in width to be balanced dynamically (i.e. Finding the discrepancies either side of the rim, thus eliminating 'wobble' as well as 'hop'). The wheel rotates on its own bearings mounted onto a fixed (no rotating) shaft, thus replicating the exact circumstances as when the wheel is on the bike!
The RS202 boasts the speediest operation of any motorcycle wheel balancer, due to its simple touch display information input, 7 second spin cycle and 16 bit microprocessor technology. Weight values, accurate to within 1 gram, are shown on a two LED displays (one for each side of the rim), with proximity lights guiding you to the exact location that the weight is to be applied. The excellent merchandising appeal of the RS202, along with its selfcalibration and maintenance-free operation, mean that you can be sure of years of trouble free balancing, satisfied customers and a company profile that shows your commitment to the service of modern motorcycles.
Optional motor for the RS202 allows you to power up the wheel to the required spin speed for a fast and accurate balance. The motor disengages allowing the wheel to spin free on its bearings with no vibration for a perfect balance. The motor can also be used as a brake to slow the wheel down after balancing due to its built-in magnetic brake system.Can be added to any RS201/2 as a retro fit kit.
Similar in design and operation to the RS202, the RS1200 motorised wheel balancer complete with automatic brake provides an ideal solution for those not wanting to restrict their capabilities solely to motorcycles. The RS1200 can cater for all motorcycle wheels and the majority of car applications as standard, but can be upgraded further to accommodate specialist wheels and even light commercials. An excellent universal wheel balancer that is at home in motorcycle and car workshops, tyre shops and even mobile situations.
A range of specialist adaptors for monolever applications are available upon request.
This static wheel balancing unit as seen in any Grand Prix paddock is supplied with 35mm cones on a 17mm shaft and is suitable for any front or rear wheel with bearings in, for the single sided wheels such as Ducatis, Hondas etc adapters are available on request. This unit comes with a spirit level and adjustable feet to ensure the correct position on the workshop bench or even floor. Ideal for the track side or budget balancing in the workshop.
