Duc96cr I bought a pair of 90 degree stems on eBay. They were a name brand and not very expensive, but I don't remember brand or price. The ones I got were anodized black and the quality appeared good.

bassat5000 Down here in TX it's a bit cheaper, we average $2.00 around Austin per US Gal. Or about $0.53 per liter. Then $0.53 to 0.49 euro.

Sorry for some reason my euro emblem comes out like this ?.


And for my front tire my 1200 came with a 90, my back is straight.

DarR Gas is cheaper here in Ontario. Approximately $1 CAD per liter or 0.71€.
Much cheaper still in NY State; aprox 0.61€ per liter.

Can't wait for that USD to fall off the cliff. That will help bringing manufacturing back to the US.
Moreover, the USD strength is killing our purchasing power here in Canada.

Rosso Classico 2 dollars to be able able to use the air pump ? G'dammit boys, Things like free air is something which i take for granted, Wow

...and since we're talking about gas stations, and out of pure curiosity, what's the price of gas been over your part of the world lately ?

Yesterday it was 1.52 per liter over here while 1 week ago about 1.32...
Still remember almost 2 years ago where the price had sky-rocketed and it was almost 2 per liter, yeah, nope

Both our cars have an air inflator in our trunk tool box thus I never need air.
I just randomly wrote 2 quarters as that's what it believed it was last time I used them...a long time ago. Wow, current prices are outrageous.

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!

Edit : Would you kindly post a link buddy ? Just searched Ducati.it and the monster spare parts catalogue but didn't find anything...
Cheers
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

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.
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

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