last two tires i changed, i didn't need weights at all. on m/c tires you line up the red dots on the opposite side of the valve stem, I think...might be the opposite way. I will check for you guys in a few.
Not quite. Before mounting the new tire, you should check the balance of the rim itself. The valve stem isn't always the heaviest part of the tire/rotor assembly. Find and mark the heaviest portion of the rim, then you can mount the tire accordingly.

and yes, it comes with a balancer. And I think it works damn good. There is so little friction, it took the tire good 5 min to come to a complete stop, after rocking back and forth.
Have to add my recommendation for this set. I bought a set, and found out that the guy that runs that business lives just a few towns north of me. Fellow rider, good guy. Everything you need for about the price of a rear tire.
