I have a T valve on the rear of my 15 and a custom t valve on the front tire so I don't have to remove either sensor to add air.


It's not what you buy, it's what you build.

Just an update for this product: I've found that the rubber O-rings on the sensors themselves are not well lubricated. After having changed the batteries a few times, the O-ring shredded and broke. So definitely lubricate those O-rings when inserting a new battery - a non-petroleum water-based lubricant is best. KY Jelly is perfect.
where can you find these small o-rings for tire-safeguard sensors.

check your local Ace Hardware, they have a lot of assorted O-rings.

or any automotive supply store, check their assortments.

They are really, really thin. I've not been able to find replacements. I eventually just screwed the cap back on without it. I've ridden through many extended rainstorms and hours and hours of mist and general miserable wetness like this, and when removing that cap I found zero evidence that any moisture ever made it inside.

I could not find replacements either so I wrote the company and they sent me two sets of O-Rings.

I have the Tire Guard System with the same valve stem TPMS Senders. I went to Lowe's to see if I could match up the O-Rings from what they have on the shelf in the Faucet/Plumbing area. I found that they Stock DANCO O-Rings. The Danco #40 O-Ring 3/4 OD. 5/8 ID. by 1/16 is a perfect match. You have to pull them over the threads of the Senders but they fit tight. I used a little vasoline on them.

I have found that using just a smear of silicon gasket sealant will do the trick. Use it on the O rings for where the carburetors join the heads to prevent air leaks and works superb there as well.

The original O-rings are available on Amazon now - I have bought them, and they fit perfectly (naturally):

I will be going with the short bolt ons I don't want any more 90s on my bike ever again I just posted an issue with the 90-degree valve stem especially the ones with combination rubber / steel . in any case I do believe that the 90-degree valve stems do cause a balance issue and they're damn sure a hazard if you happen to hit something nothing but straight stubbies for me.
might be a little inconvenient and you always got to carry a 90 degree air adapter with you but I don't want nothing hanging outside of my rim that something can hang up on.

Will keep you posted on that and I replace the one that blew out with a stubby just rubber for the time being cuz I need to get together a few bucks for the new tires but had no problems at all airing up the rear .

I have been using these 90-degree stems on my 1500 for a very long time. There's no way they can blow out like your rubber ones did, because they can't come out that way - they can only be removed from the inside of the tire. They are extremely strong - that said, I still replace them every time I replace my tires. Cheap insurance.

They do not cause imbalance, because the tire is simply balanced against them. My tires are easily balanced with Counteract beads with the stems, with no sign of vibration (and I have the TPMS sensors on the stems as well).

Definitely will be going with the bolt in valves and going to try the straight stubbies. As much as the bush tangling in the rear tire of my bike was a real freak incident it happened. Of course there is no way I can prove the 90 degree valve even contributed to the event it was damaged and even if it were a bolt in the sealing of the valve is dependant on the o rings. Even the twisting of the stem or the breaking of the plastic retainer could cause the 90 bolt in valve to leak air. This was a first valve failure in a life time of bikes including Moto cross ....
