Even with the kurvygirl valve, it works better if you hold it with one hand for stability. Even with that, it's still much easier than using a vertical valve stem.

I have the kurvygirl valves on my older vtx and much easier. I think the added length of the attachment increased wobble.

U may already know this...but stems MAY work better pointing to right side of the bike (sitting on it) ....I wasn’t thinking when I installed mine same as stock position (pointing left)....

On my 1800C with saddlebags I have them mounted pointing to the left as sitting on the bike. Exhaust is on the right and if I am on a trip and have to go someplace to put air in would probably burn yourself on the pipes.

Yes, I have used those angled valves that you screw on and then screw off but have since went back to old style compressor attachment. The pot metal type with the little clip. Went back to the old style pressure gauge also. The one with the measuring stick in it. The pancake compressor I have is supposed to stop at a set pressure but that piece of crap doesn't work right either.

Sometimes the old ways are best and less frustrating.
I use this type at home with a quick fitting threaded in:



It works great at home, but most gas stations don't have the same so next tire change I'm adding angled valve stems. No further worries.

True.

When you are young you want what everyone else has . . when you are old you want what everyone else had.

I use this one. Unlike the curvy girl, it does not move, so you can get your gauge or chuck on it with only one hand.
