Rear tubes - what fits?

Mon Nov 22, 2010 11:16 am

I had to buy a tube for one of the rear tires on my 1450. I found one that would fit from TSC, the only problem is the valve stem is almost centered while the valve stem hole on the rim is offset to the outside edge of the rim. When fully inflated the valve stem is nearly pulled back inside the tire. Does anyone make tube that actually fits or should I be looking at drilling a new valve stem hole in the rim?

Tubes are a pain in the A** but you should be able to twist the tube around on the rim to get the valve stem oriented correctly. You should not have to drill a new hole.
