2013 model year. Any idea why the valve stems point toward the left side of the bike? Considering the bike is usually on it's side stand, it's much easier to get under the bike on the right side. Is it possible the tires were replaced on my bike and they turned the stems?

Valve stems come from the factory pointing to the left. On the rear the brake disc is on the right too. Do a search on the forum and you will find other discussions on valve stems on the right!

They must have figured with a centerstand that the customer can use it to get to the left handed valve stem caps. It would really s... without it. F6B’s that way too? I always figured it was due to the caliper back there.
