Angled Valve Stems

Has anyone changed their straight valve stems to angled valve stems. I always have such a hard time with checking tires and putting air.

Apparently there are two sizes? I was wonder what anyone used. As example, Revzilla sells these:

and https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/...ee-valve-stems

Thanks,
Gerry

Well regarding size, apparently both say that metric bikes use the 11 / 11.3 mm size.

These are the one's I bought when I did my rear tire. The front still has some life left on it so for right now I'm just holding onto one.

Cool, and I agree with your timing, I would do it when it is time to change a tire.

Thanks!

I looooooove right angle valve stems! My BMW has wheels with the valve port at a right angle already. This should be standard on ALL BIKES!!

@tweak89 - My 1100 VSTAR had one on the rear tire only, but that's where it was needed.

@vulcandoc - Oooh... instant fix! Just screw this on the existing straight valve stem, great idea!
