    As title, any good quality rigid angled tyre valves that folks can recommend.

    Being used to Triumphs I have been spoilt as come std.

    Later Hondas are going that way but I believe teh size is different

    Cheers

    I had some similar to these fitted when i changed my tyres:

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/391892032123?chn=ps&adgroupid=54713418609&rlsatarget=pla-411723787390&abcId=1133926&adtype=pla&merchantid=101721959&poi=&googleloc=1006959&device=c&campaignid=1057752920&crdt=0

    Im not sure on the exact size as my tyre place carries them and i just asked for some to be fitted.

    I had them on my last CT to and never had an issue. Dont need replacing on every tyre change either.

    They look the dogs Hartley  :028:

    Under no circumstances fit the 90 degree brass necked ones :182:

    This type splits the rubber nipple that goes into the rim, the centrifrugal force throws the brass neck outwards and splits the nipple!!!!!
