Just a suggestion but can't you use one of those mini 12 volt tire inflator until you get the valve stem changed? I have a couple of those and one of them has a screw-in type that would seem to fit.

Dar, any links please ? Something cheap(ish) but not downright terrible quality-wise would be a good alternative.

Much appreciated

Different but maybe will do the trick?

No experience myself, are your tires losing air that quickly? Before I got the right angle on the front I was just using my Ryobi inflator at home and was plenty to get to as far as Indy and back without a top off.

I have something in a similar price range in both cars. One has a screw-in and the other is a 90 degree quick detach.

I use a bicycle pump and check/inflate them before I leave home, It's a tight fit but it works for both tyres.

I bought one of these, but in brass (matches the forks on my S) and it was closer to $4 from fleabay.

Thanks Sonic
No, my tyres are OK (as in, they don't lose air quickly), it's just that i wanted to check 'em since i hadn't done so since mid-October and it's something which i do before a long ride.

So simple and yet...
Cheers Nomad


Whole thing is idiotic tbh though, especially since some MY's have the normal vertical valves while others the 90 degrees one, and since tyre pressure check is something which most of us do at gas stations (at least over my side of the pond) and you don't know whether their air pump is gonna have a long metal nozzle or a rubber cable-like one, well..."Ducati" man - 330mm discs with a vertical valve stem, dudes over at borgo Panigale are rocket scientists i tell you...

Just gonna install a 90 degree valve stem on the front tyre and be done with it.

Thanks for the help boys

@Classico Rosso
Hopefully this will make you feel better, but here in Canada, it's getting difficult to find air at a gas station.
And,... when you do, you need a quarters or two in pocket change which I normally don't carry even in the car, let along while riding the bike!

Sorry, my bad. Saw them at my Ducati dealer and assumed they were made by Ducati; guess not.

Mine look like these but with Ducati lettered in red along the stem

Where are you finding air for less than $1 in Ontario? Every station around me is 1 to 2 dollars for air, although you can get it for free sometimes if you ask nicely after buying gas.
