PostSubject: Tire valve help   Sun Mar 17, 2019 10:07 am

Hi, Doc here. I have changed the rear wheel valve on my fjs 600 2004 (genuine item) and I also bought two clips to hold the valve steady when you push against it to inflate the tyre. Can anyone please tell me how to keep the clip secure on the fitting before I go nuts.i have tried gorilla glue and other adhesives to no avail.
Would be grateful for any help please. Thanks,Doc.

Doc, I moved your post here. You had tacked it on an Introduction post. Should get more views and help here.

Hi bud, you say genuine valve, did you also get the genuine clip ? The clip is a bit of a pain to fit but it shouldn't need any adhesive, it should snap into place on the cast lug.

Hi, thanks for getting in touch. Yes both clips are genuine and neither one will actually clip on and stay. The minute I press against the valve with my airgun it pops off. Been in the garage all morning trying to fit it. Luckily I have a good head of hair to pull. Cheers

Doc unless it's a broken / incorrect clip it should snap in place.  You could go to a straight stubby valve stem and eliminate the clip, I did as I have to get on the floor to check pressure and it's just easier for me.

Thinking on, some of the fitting problem might the cold weather we're having, try warming the clip in hot water to make it more pliable bud, it should push into place

This is how I solved the problem as well. Much easier for me.

My warning/advise if you change to the straight valve to make sure you use the short stubby one to avoid it from striking the transmission on each rotation of the wheel. I know because I replaced mine with one that was too tall. My rear tire would go flat within 15 minutes of riding. At first I thought someone was letting the air out, but upon inspection I could see that the valve cap was wore down from striking something. Watching as I rotated the wheel, i saw it striking the forward transmission cover. Changed the stem with a shorter stem and all was good.

Thanks Easyrider,, I'll make sure it's a short one if I do go down that road . I have one more thing to try and if that fails then it's the short valve route.
Take care out there, I'll post the outcome when I'm done.
