It doesn't matter if the balance is off slightly when it is leaning forward in the ring. The feet are for resting, not operation. Put the feet on correctly so that the ring leans forward (so it doesn't fall backward when resting). Rig the camera with the weight distributed fairly equally to the left and right of payload. Balance the MōVI. Check the balance on the screen on the back as well as when you stand the MōVI in standard operating position (vertical) Adjust as necessary. Power the MōVI on and use it.
