Air Sensor

Can you remove the air sensor from a 2009 rim and replace it with a valve stem and run it on older bikes like a 08 Goldwing.

Yes. But the 09 and newer rims (designed for TPMS sensors) do not have the little support tab on the outside of the wheel that the 2001-2008 rims have. So I'd suggest you install metal 90 degree valve stems, not the rubber OEM 90 degree stems, as the rubber stems won't have the support they depend on.

Thanks for the help. That was the only difference I saw too. I do use the metal 90° valve stems. Again, thanks.
