8. Angled Valve Stems

Of all the features the ZX-10R boasts, I’m hyping up some valve stems?! Yessir, I am. The devil is in the details, and the proliferation of huge front brake discs has made it more difficult to check tire pressures (you do check your tire pressure, right?). It’s obviously doable with the traditional straight stems, but the added simplicity and convenience afforded from the angled valve stem makes you wonder why more motorcycles don’t have them.

    Angled stems, my Duc has one on the rear, where I dont need it, and a normal one on the front where I do. Oh well, they tried…

      Well that’s just silly.
