Not sure but I replaced mine with metal stems on the last tire change and I got passenger car tire stems... worked good. Only a few bucks.. for two.Fred said:Does anybody know the valve stem hole size and also how thick is the hole(I need to make sure the threaded bottom part is long enough.) I was thinking approx. .033" X3/8 thick but just guessing.
Hole diameter is .458 (standard automotive) and thickness I am not sure. If you go with metal stems be sure that they are threaded at least 3/4". this should give enough thread length.Fred said:Does anybody know the valve stem hole size and also how thick is the hole(I need to make sure the threaded bottom part is long enough.)

IIRC, the discussion was about the adapters one could screw on the standard shorty stems. Maybe.tbl160 said:There was some discussion on the board about the 90 degree stems. If I recall it had to do with supporting the stem against centrifugal force loads.
There are some listed on this page. http://saber-cycle.com/store/Universal.html#331NOGILLS2 said:If you would allow me to make a recomendation. Go to your local honda dealer and purchase the 90 degree bent valve stems. They will make life so much easier, my one regret is when I changed my stems i went to the oreilys and purchased the metal chrome stems and did not find the bent stems. Since I have changed them found the bent ones are regular items at the honda dealer and will use them at the next change, it may not seem like much but will make checking and adding air much easier and therefore you will do it more often.
