It is quite possible to install the stick-on wheel weights inside the wheel halves. Turn the wheel on the motorcycle wheel balancer and mark the heavy spot. Once the tire is deflated, remove the hardware and separate one wheel half from the tire, tube, wheel assembly without disturbing the clocking of the tire and apply weights inside the wheel halves opposite the heavy spot. Reinstall hardware loosely and repeat as necessary to achieve excellent balance.
Clean the places inside the wheel where the weights will go first with a suitable solvent, rubbing alcohol works well.
We no longer have lead weights available here in the US, and the weights shown are a lighter metal so it took several of them to balance the tire assembly.
This is the nose wheel under discussion. On the mains the weights can go on the outside.
