    Hello guys,
    I have problems inflating the tubes of my Road King in a decent way.
    The valve is centred at the middle of the rim.
    How do you do that?

    What are you trying to achieve????? Have you changed tires and you can not get tires aired up????

    I have the HD extension that Jack pointed out but also have 90* metal valve stem extensions that work too. The HD hose is a bit easier to deal with especially on the rear but both work. I keep both varieties in my saddle bags. Oh and I also have spoked/ tubed wheels. Prefer tubes in my spoked wheels.

    Now I get it. I can not for the life of me understand why the Harley touring bikes are so difficult to air tires. Metrics use 90 degree valve stems in both tube and tubeless.

    That was/is the trouble.
    how to control and correct if necessary the pressure of your tire..
    that valve stem..
    Btw,I owned another HD.with 90 deg. valve stems..
    2 Of my friends own HD's with 90 deg. valve stems..
    Isn't it just a Touring "problem"?
