tire balancing

I have two new Michelin pure powers I am going to have put on. So I am going to take the rims/tires into the dealer since the bike is in pieces still due to my slow paint job progress. I was wondering with the front rim do they balance it with the rotors bolted on the rim or off? I have never had a bike long enough to put tires on it I usually total them out first Lol!

Be SURE to have the rotors bolted on when you get it balanced!!! I didn't do that with my VFR and had big chatter at 85+. Couldn't figure out what was wrong till I remembered balancing them without the rotors. Redid the balance and the problem disappeared.
I use a balancer with adapters for the VFR single sided set-up. Can't remember the name of the guy who built it.
