    Oh that's nice, I regularly swear at how poor the access is to the valve stem on my 850 when I'm trying to get my compressor on it or any compressor out in the wild if I want to adjust the pressure at a gas station etc.

    I bought a set of these... (They come as a set of 6 with three different angles) and carry one of each in my tank bag in case I need to use a tire inflator at a gas station. At home my compressor and air gauge have 90 degree chucks on them so I have no problem checking or inflating the tires.

    I got them on Amazon for about $10.00

    I always keep those in my tank bag/top box but it would be nice if it wasn't needed since it's still a bit of a hassle.

    The 90deg valve from BMW seems to be around $60 each which is a bit crazy, so I guess I'll be sticking with the screw-on extensions.

    It looks like these are fixtures, and so there is no problem with wheel balancing and high speeds? And it works on the spoked rim?

    If so, I will pay! I am over getting onto my knees to deal with 90 degree chucks.

    Correct, they come standard on the R1250GS(with RDC). Iím just not sure if itíll fit the 850.

    Ah, but not the GSA? I am now thinking it may not be wise to have it when riding in the technical stuff, as it will be more exposed to possible damage from stones, branches etc. I will explore further.

    I went with SnoDrtRiders solution of the cheap angle adapters and just keeping it in my bag for when I need to use a compressor away from the house. Under 10 bucks on Amazon for a bunch and solve the issue in a way that doesn't add any other interference etc.
