Hmmm those are interesting I know when you order pm wheels for a bagger then send angled valve stems but not that style, those are cleaner

8.3mm is the correct size for Vic XC stock rims.

Good find, Im going to buy a set in black. Only other ones i have found were on Amazon for $25

LINK TO KURVYGIRL

The Cross Country uses the 8.3 MM stems. I ordered the flat black ones and as soon as I change tires they'll be installed.

- As nxvic said, the 8.3mm is the correct size for most recent Vic wheels. Kurvey Girl has a nice write-up here: kurveygirl.com - Dzus, Vesrah, Brembo, Spring Clips and More - 83deg Aluminum 11.3mm GEN2 Angled Valve Stem: Black (2 pcs)

Scroll down near the bottom of the page, to see the exception area and the VICTORY MOTORCYCLES list.

- That ebay link is a good find. Less expensive than Kurvey Girl (although a portion of your purchase there goes to the Roadracing World Action Fund). By contrast, see this Kurvey Girl page: https://www.kurveygirl.com/shop/product_info.php?cPath=27&products_id=639&osCsid=cf874ttshu3pus4047h2bl3f13

- I had that style on my Burgman 650 for five years, and they worked flawlessly. I forgot where I got them -- there are other sellers of this sort of thing out there -- but that ebay deal looks sweet.

...these go to 11. But only because I bought an internal TPMS sensor which was too big. And it only worked for a couple of weeks. And when I threw that piece of crap away and went back to a regular valve stem, I went to the right-angle stem at 11.3...because I had to.

So....THAT was an excellent purchase and resulting mod.:eek

Just bought the ones in my link. Probably won't be changing tires until well after the New Year but I figured I'd get them now. I'll likely update this thread when its done.

Well. Just had rear tire put on and the dealer couldn't fit a right angled stem on the rear. Said the wheel was too thick:mad:
so they put the regular ones on.

How much money would I lose if I bet you the OEM stems were built in China as well?
Well, considering the wheels themselves were made in China, ... :)

Anyone know why the dealer would say my wheel (cast?) was too thick? I thought all that mattered was the hole size.

On the Kurvy Girl style, depending on which way you put the nut on, it could appear that there's not sufficient room. There's a slight counterbore for the nut to ride against. If you have the nut so the extra boss (similar to the appearance of a nylon insert lock nut) is facing outward, there's not enough room to get a socket on it. Have to flip it over so the boss on the nut faces the wheel.

It still seat correctly ? I have to take it back to make them rebalance because the wheel weights flew off. I think they used fricking wood glue.
You have a part number for curves girl ?

I just looked up curvy girl parts and they list a valve for the cast wheels. I am going to tell the dealer since they have to take the wheel off again they can put a new valve stem on.
