The kit is helpful in feeding the beads through the valve (with stem removed). With the 90 degree bend, this is an exercise in patience.

The beads are made of some sort of porcelain or something. I'd think that if zirconium breaks it would be similar to having bits of broken glass inside the tire.
I just toss them into the tire after I seat the first bead, and don't mess with the valve stem.

Lately I've gone away from using them in the front, and only the rear.

I Ride: anything I can get my hands on
I found a cooperative auto/truck tire shop that balanced the rear wheel from my wife's HawkGT some years ago. You might ask around. However, they found the balance to be just fine.

I still think that a balanced wheel is all you need, as long as you stick to one of the top three or four brands of tire. Note that Kuksul only needed 4 grams...that's a whole lot less than one segment of stick-on weight. OTOH I might not trust others such as the cheapo Nittos I just replaced with Q3s on our "visiting" FZ-09.

I'll try that. Was thinking that the seating of the beads would blow them out the rim. Not your experience?

Not really. I just roll the valve stem so it is opposite the beads, and no issues yet. Just don't whip the tire around and they should be fine.

It doesn't matter. I just put the weight in the middle.

Yep that makes sense.
The clutch spring to maintain tension is elegant. You considering to sell some units? I might just grab one

I hadn't planned on it. Someone on here who already owns a Marc Parnes balancer asked me for some similar springs and shaft collars which he bought and said it works great. I would probably go that route if I were you Unless you really want one, it will cost the same price as Marc when it's all said and done!
