Thanks Bill....I knew it wasn't a 17mm because my set has up to 19mm and it wouldn't fit. I have to purchase a socket to fit so I can do the re-route and I want to get the correct size. I'll take your advice on the side panel also, since I'm going to route through the panel similar to what you did.
MAGS.....I'm never taking your advice again and that thingy you told me about woman...it was completely wrong too
If you're going through the side panel AND you want to flush-mount a Schrader valve the way I did, you'll need that special tap that's the equivalent of the OUTSIDE threads of a Schrader valve. The bad news is that that tap is rare and expensive, and I just did a quick search and I can't find mine. I'll have to look better sometime.
(Yeah, expensive, but I had a burr up my ass when I was doing that project, and I'm OCD, and that's how I wanted to do that. Sometimes I'm weird.)
OTOH, if you just want to have the end of an extension hose (with built-in Schrader valve at that end) poking through a drilled opening in the side cover, that would be easier, would probably look fine, and you wouldn't have to tap anything. That would probably make more sense. If you look at a pic of the extension hose I bought for the project -- and there are many other similar ones -- you would just need to make that end shorter, so it wouldn't stick out so far. I made it shorter, too, even though it's behind the side cover, just because it was so long. I just used a hacksaw.
[EDIT: And for those interested in relocating but not drilling, as I mention in my write-up, you'll want to read MTVic's thread on relocation: https://www.victoryforums.com/34-vict...er-nipple.html
And I'm forgetful, too. Next ride I'll have to remember to give you that handlebar RAM thingy. And you'll have to tell me what Mags says about women.
