Mine are not laced over the valve stem, but it's still difficult to get in there with a standard gas station filler.

That is a bummer - I don't suppose there's any chance they will swap the wheel out for you. That's pretty poor.

That's a handy gauge. I do carry a right angle adapter with me to make filling at gas stations easier if I need to do it. I also carry a pressure gauge with a flex on it that makes reading the pressure easy, but it does not have the air adapter on the end to fill through.

Incidentally - I noticed the new cast wheel bonnies are coming with right angle vavlves on the wheels from the factory. A minor but nice detail. They should have done that on all the bikes.

I have an inner tube with a right angle valve on it on my ride on lawnmower - but I freely admit that that is a rather different and less stressful application than a motorcycle. According to my shade tree power sports catalog you can get 90 degree stems on some of the smaller wheel sizes (15 and 16 inch), but nothing bigger than that.

It would be handy though wouldn't it?
