    Which air chuck for K1300GT?

    I use that rim on the rear of my GSA sidecar rig and due to the position of the valve stem non of my chucks fit. I have to use one of those screw-on 90 degree adapters to top off my tires, but canít imagine thatís the only solution. Is there a chuck that fits in that tight space between the stem and the cast spokes that works with a portable pump?

    So this is a new problem since your March 2020 questions on essentially the same subject?

    Part senility and part hoping some new gadget has been invented. At home I’m okay as multiple chucks work with my compressor. It’s the small air pumps I take on trips I’m having trouble with

    I ran into that problem right after buying my RT. Saw the tire was low while at work, thought I'd use the shop air, and found that none of the available chucks would fit. Tried two gas stations on the way home, no joy.

    The real solution is to change to a right angle valve stem so that nearly any chuck will work.

    I have an air chuck that is a head 90 degrees to the handle. I got it at a NAPA store.

    The rear valve stem on the K1300GT is part of the TPMS sensor so fitting a right-angle stem is likely not doable. Best solution is an extension hose, and I know I’ve seen at least one tire pump vendor offering that but can’t recall the vendor.

    Best,
    DeVern

    EDIT: Oops, forgot that this is a sidecar wheel and likely not running TPMS. In that case, I’d second the right-angle stem as mentioned earlier.

    That works on my home compressor, but not on the portable compressor I take on trips. I have an old Slime pump I use on the other bike. Might see if an adapter or just replacing the hose would let me fit one of those

    This article addresses some of the BMW fitment problems- https://bestrestproducts.com/90-degree-air-chucks/

    Sounds like an easy workaround- maybe?

    I bought and carry a 6" extension when I had the 07GT for the rear wheel.
