Anyone replaced the front wheel valve stem on a 1700 Voyager with a 90 degree metal one? If so, what brand name and part# did you install? I plan on changing tires soon and don't know what the stem hole size is in the wheel and have no idea what to buy! Thanks!

10 mm stems. As long as it clears everything, there is no reason a 90° stem could not be put on the front. They also make 60° stems that would not stick out as far, but still easier to get to than the straight ones. I assume it's for convenience, not for something like added tire pressure sensors.

Just wanting to make it easier to get at the valve. All the stems I have found fit either .453 or .625 diameter diameters.

It should be 0.453 to 0.625 not either or. Anyway, those will work just fine. I used the MC Enterprises valve stems, purchased from BikeBandit.com. Those are the diameters they specify and they fit perfectly.

No, I installed an MC Enterprise straight stem: http://www.bikebandit.com/aftermarket-parts/motorcycle-wheels-and-final-drive/valve-stems-caps-universal/m-c-enterprises-tubeless-tire-valve-stem

It fits the 0.453" - 0.625" hole range. I did put the 90° of a different brand on the rear.
