Exclamation 90 degrees air stem

HI again,

in the past, I had major problems inflating air in my rear tire because that the air stem is going out straight up in one of the mag hub support. The stem is very cloge and I can't use most of the air stations because of the stem. Is there something that can be done about this??? I was thinking a 90 degrees air stem would be great.

Serge

Re: 90 degrees air stem

I had this same problem with my 1200s. Purchased a brass 90* one that you had to only use when adding air. Worked great.

Thanks CJS350,

I looked at those but I think that my TPMS would not work with these.

Re: 90 degrees air stem

Hi Chris,

do you have a picture of the stem that you're talking about? Does it interfere with the TPMS?

Thanks!

For the price, it's worth it!


Saves a lot of the aggravation factor...
