    Lightbulb Right angle tyre valve adaptors

    This is my 1st GS and I'm finding it a bit fiddly to inflate the tyres using my compressor and inflator gauge at home coz it's a straight connector. Anyone got any recommendations for right angle adaptors for tyre valves on GS or indeed any recommendations for a right angled inflator gauge. Cheers

    I went the cheapskate route and bought a right angled valve adaptor from the bicycle section in my local Halfords. I never leave it fitted to the bike, but do keep in my Jacket. Also useful if any of your mates get stuck when on a ride out too and have to use a forecourt airline.

    Have a look on eBay? Think mine came from Busters, and lives under the seat on the bike.

    Got a second one, permanently fitted to the air compressor.

    They are that cheap - why skimp?

    Here you go:

    Nippy Normans sell two different ones, one for non TPMS and one for bikes with TPMS, what is the difference, or is it that the actual valve stem are different lengths.

    Just bought one of these to go with my rocky creek compressor to use inline, very good quality but at £20 not cheap !
    I got fed up (when checking pressures at home on car and bike) having to check pressure with pencil guage, connect compressor/foot pump, pump up to approx correct, disconnect, reconnect pencil gauge etc. (you get the idea ?)
    This one comes with a straight and 45 degree valve attachment and bleed off valve, can be used to check pressure on its own or go in line with any other compressor/air line so you can check, inflate/deflate, check etc until correct with 1 connection !

    Max,

    I have a similar adapter (in brass) to the ones Blackal has posted which I no longer need for my new LC.

    If you want it, PM me your address and I will put it in the post next week for you.

    Hi GSTourer thanks v much for kind offer but after reading another post on same subject I purchased an Oxford right angled tyre adaptor with hose which simply clips over the original valve and gives me plenty space to then attach inflator.
