What size valve stems?

I'm sick of dealing with the stems on this bike - it's nearly impossbile for me to reach it with my compressor and tough even to just check the pressure. I'm about to replace the tires, and want to put on 90 degree valve stems. But, in ordering them, there are 8mm, 10mm and 11mm valve options. Which does the Versys take? It's not in the service manual (that I can see anywhere...).

Cheers, Jeff

Not sure but can you measure? I would guess 10mm. If it's 8 you could open up the hole. If it's 11 I'm sure the 1mm wouldn't matter much with a threaded stem.

Falling down is your bodies way of saying you just screwed up.

Yeah - I could measure, but that'll require removing the current valve stems, which means pulling off the tires, and I want to replace the tires and stems at the same time. Seems 10mm is the most popular, some valve stems are only offered in that size...

Cheers, Jeff

Get EACH size, then return for credit the ones you don't need.

I think we answered the exact same time, but invader is correct of course.
