    Valve Stem size?

    Looking to replace the valve stems on both rims with my upcoming tire change.  I'd like to know what size the OEM stems are (2020 Z900 ABS - if it matters).

    I am seeing 8.3mm and 11.3mm sizes. 

    I am looking to get right angle stems, preferably made of metal.  The only ones I an find that are readily available are from here:

    If you have experience in this, please consider posting a comment, link or brand that has worked well for you.  Thank you.   :821:

    11.3 mm. Get 83 degree not 90 degree, reason being is the 90 is too close to the rim and difficult to get the air hose on. 83 degrees alleviates this issue. These are the ones I buy

    RadGuard do ship to the US but I imagine it would be quicker finding a US importer.

    So? Order from RadGuard, if you cannot find locally. They are excellent to deal with.
