Hi, I have a 2009 Silver Wing and was going to put some tyre sealant in the tyres.
I purchased the sealant, went to remove the valve so I could put the sealant in and found that the valve key which I have used for years would not remove the valve.
On closer inspection it appears that the valve cores are integral and cannot be removed.
Has anybody come across this before?

Regard Ron

I wouldn't use sealant to tubeless weels(JMO).Rim will became a mess.There are minor cases that your SW will not be able to moove.Even a woodscrew inside the hole can bring you back safely.I have no clues for valves though.Try a portable repair kit

I have Ultraseal in my tyres and I've been there when the tyres have been changed. All it requires is the mechanic or tyre fitter to wipe the sealant residue off the rim with paper towel before fitting the new tyre. No mess, no fuss, and no complaints from them about having Ultraseal in the tyres.

It's a safer option than trying to fix a puncture by the side of the road with a repair kit or using of those wonder aerosols that claim to seal the puncture and inflate the tyre.

As for portable repair kits, you better carry one that works, know how to use it, and have a means of inflating the tyre up to pressure.

Rather than start a "debate" about sealant, let's remember that the question was about valves.  Wink

Starting a debate in your opinion not mine. I doubt if tyre valves or cores are integral as replacement tyre valves are widely available from motor accessories shop, and being such a small delicate part they do occasionally fail and are easily replaced. The stem of the valve is easily removed with a valve tool, the metal MZ tyre valve caps even had one built into the top.

If the OP can't remove it with this valve key he's had for years, I suggest he takes it round to a bike dealership or tyre fitters and get them to confirm or deny this integral tyre valve and maybe loosen the valve for him. Of course something could be causing the valve to stick to the threads, possibly dried tyre sealant residue if the tyre has been treated by a previous owner. After treating tyres with Ultraseal or similar you have to clean the valve tube threads of residue before replacing the valve to inflate the tyre.

The OP asked about valves. The second poster came back witha post which veered onto the use of sealant. Not what the OP wanted, I suspect. I used the word "debate" as a polite euphamism for a 'my willy is bigger than yours' slanging match. It has happened before.

I changed the entire rubber valve assembly for the Ariete metal ones which definitely have removable cores .

Is it a Schrader valve? Each time i have a new tyre fitted they change the valve, it has always been a schrader. I didnt know of any other, and the core is removable. Smile
