Default Air Shock Valve Relocation Video

I needed to relocate my air shock valve in order to accommodate an oversized pressure sensor.

This is a quick, simple and free relocation that only take a couple of minutes.

Click here to watch my video.

Let me know what you think.
Thanks
Paul

EZ-P-ZEE..... Thanks Paul, I use the same pump as you do and may now move my valve just to make it a little easier to get at.

Hey Paul are those wheel sensors always transmitting or do they turn on when the wheels move? I was thinking about doing the same thing but the TPM system I was looking at the sensors turned off at rest so the Shock would not work

Yeah they are transmitting all the time, they don't go to sleep.
I was thinking of removing them for winter storage to save on battery life.
I don't know if that would work or not.

I definitely like this idea. What brand of TPMS do you have, I only find systems that have 2 sensors?

I am pretty sure Paul has the Doran. You can get it with 2, 3 or 4 sensors

my question is, how do you actually air up the shock with the sensor there? When you remove and replace it, to access it for adding air, your always going to lose a pound or 2 of pressure, just like when you check the pressure with the gauge, right? Granted a pound or to may not seem like much but in the shocks it can make a difference I think. Wouldn't it make it more useful a set-up if you had a splitter that allowed you to fill with air without removing the sensor? Just some of my thoughts. Great vid though, you do make some useful vids for sure. I used your vid for making my own pvc 1/4 turn throttle. Thanks for that
