I have a 2016 Honda Forza,
After the black wheel air value stem cap is removed there is has a red plastic insert on the valve stem, it has a center hole with a small diameter, the regular Schrader air chuck and air pressure gauge will not fit it.
Does Honda have there own air chuck and air pressure gauge.
What do you do…remove the red plastic insert…

Glen could that red plastic insert be the small o-ring that lies within the valve stem's cap? Tiny as it maybe, it sometimes sticks on the valve stem itself. I've even seen them fall out of the cap when their old and dry (that's not the case here).

True but on both though?

This is all very strange. A picture would really help.

I just looked at the Online Part Fiche, the Front and Rear wheels only show the Triton Air Valve.

?? I’m lost. (Graco) Triton is an air valve rather than a type of stem valve?

It’s just going to be a schrader. Post a picture?

Alrighty, I'm getting really confused now. Our scoots come equipped with schrader valves (like most vehicles). What is this about triton - The manufacturers valves? :roll:
This? http://www.tritonvalves.com/listproduct ... ory=VALVES

Triton is a brand, like Honda
Schrader is a type, like scooter.

The red insert is from the inside of the plastic value cap, I will
push it back in, it was from the rear wheel, the front wheel was fine,
look into the plastic value cap and you could see the red insert.
Thank for the help...
