90 Degree valve stems $CH.EAP

Post by FM-USA »



Found these 90 degree aluminum valve stems.
I don't think you're going to find any cheaper than these PAIR.
($3.37 Free ship Hong Kong)
IF someone knows the quality of these, please post. GOOD - BAD - FUGLY

Those look very nice but personally I wouldn't be looking to save some money on a valve stem. Too important a part. For me the bend on those would maybe be a problem on a Goldwing wheel. There is no riser section away from the wheel rim. WingStuff sells a proper pair for $7.99.

I understand your concerns. Being cast, there is no bend.
Also there isn't a need for a riser, that adds more weight and lessens the overall strength.

I did email the seller on these, he said they are cast not machined. So I looked much closer at the stems. I see there are filled holes in the casting, so they are not good quality.

I was also asking...

Key word; KNOWS

I would say PASS on these valve stems.

I've always bought mine off of this EBay seller as they are the real ones, imported from Italy.

A couple bucks cheaper than the same ones sold by kurveygirl.com


They do require a very slight mod of the rim to fit, but they are superior valve stems that will last the life of your bike!

Last set of air valves you'll ever need to buy for your bike!

Can you show a picture of them installed without the cap screwed on? I'd like to see if there is enough clearance for the TPMS sensors I have on my bike.

I imagine there would be, depending on which TPMS you use and how much of the tab you grind down.
I just ground off enough for my purposes.

Dusty, centrifugal weight don't bother that sensor?
How about wheel balance? (non 'balance bead' wheels)

Nope ... no problems with either, Floyd.
I balance my wheels with those caps already installed.

I bought my first set from the kurveygirl years ago. Waiting to mount on my matching black rim.

But what I really like, and have bought and used, is these from Jake Wilson.
https://www.jakewilson.com/p/1753/-/162 ... Valve-Stem

The tightening nut is on the outside, where if you do your own mounting, gives you the opportunity to tighten them up a little more, incase you have a minor leak.

At $2 per, they make a great gift. Sales come from time-to-time.

Speaking of valves, the OEM rubber style NEED to be changed with every tire change, so they don't fail, like the one in the picture above.

I have had these valve stems on my 1986 GL1200 SEi for 2 seasons now about 16,000 miles. They work great very light, the caps are thin wall so a bit fragile. No leaks no problems. :D

Keep us posted IF any of those stems goes bad.

Which valve stems are you referng to? Have to replace my tires and would like to have 90 degree stems, more convenient.
