Typically the painted "dot" should be at the valve stem to start. After this the whelk should be balanced. Wether it's on a static balancer or machine. I have never been able to swap tires and have it balanced perfect from the get go! I change my own tires and have for years. If you are paying someone to change them they most definantly better be balanced!!

I mean I would rather spend $70 on plugs rather than spend big money on any other failure that may be caused by trying to be cheap.
I fail to see what ''being cheap'' has to do with anything...none of my front tires i have installed (to my 1000RR) ever needed balanving...and cost is not an issue...

now...go back 10 years and both front&rears of my babyblade (my old 400RR) needed balancing...

P.S. when i say balanced i mean the addition of weight to the rims...

I agree with a lot of the other guys
1.yeah it needs to be balanced
2.take it in tell them it's shaking it has been since the new tire, make sure a different tech does the job and rebalances it "not the lazy guy from before"
3.i had a r6 that the idiot mechanic put like a 2 oz weight the kind that stick to the rim, not the nice ones that go in the middle and believe me it threw the balance way off while doing wheelies until I took the weight off and took it to Yamaha to have it rebalanced with proper weight size and the nice looking type.

Oh, I don't know about that. I remember on my old Yamaha 1100 the front end would shake violently at high speed. I had to lock my arms between my knees to control it. I had the front tire replaced and balanced (rear tread was OK). It still shook. Headset was adjusted correctly and nothing I found was loose.

Finally, I replaced the rear tire and had it balanced. The high speed shaking went away. The rear tire was so out-of-balance that it caused an oscillation through the frame.

I have NEVER had a problem with the ones that stick on, they work just fine.

Agreed, rear HAS to be balanced as well.
