Just to confirm- besides the cost, is there any reason I cant/shouldnt run an elbow valve stem (like the front wheel), and the back wheel?

I cant think of anything, but want to double check before I click "check-out" on Ducati Omaha's website!

The reason they run the elbow on the front is due to the spoke pattern, there is too much interference. With the rear wheel, there generally isn't any interference issues, so they don't bother. You can run elbow's on anything you want, they just add more weight so you should have your wheel/tire re-balanced afterwards.

I understand why they are on the front. If it was a straight valve stem you wouldnt be able to get to it with the rotors in the way.

Have to order new bearings and seals for the front, and need new valve stems for when I have the new tires mounted.
