Valve Stems

I am having trouble checking and adjusting the air pressure in the rear wheel, as the valve core seems to be seated too deeply inside the valve stem. Does this happen often?

Regards
John

Hmmmmm.....there are different cores out there. Haven't had this problem (yet) but can see how it may happen.

Pull it out and go visit a auto tire shop and ask them to let you rummage through the discarded valve stems.

You can also buy valve cores at most auto parts stores.

Good luck.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

The pin type gauge in my touring tool kit won't work on the Turismo for the same reason. I have a Venhill gauge that reads it fine but is less portable. Probably need to buy another small gauge.

Must be some dodgy valve stem supplier along the way somewhere - like Ed said, just replace the core, it's a cheap and easy fix.

That might be a solution Dons. Alternatively it might be the valve body has the seat recessed too far. Have some spare valve stems so good call on trying a different core, will give that a go when I get the chance.

Let us know what you find Chas, I'll leave this thread here till we are sorted on a solution, kind of keen to hear if any of the other new bikes have a similar issue.
