    tot they always change it when you change tyres?? think its good to change the valve when you change tyres.. cos it may leak or dirt may accumulate in the valve...

    it is a standard procedure that a tyre valve be changed whenever you change tyres...

    Bro,that rubber piece is from your cap.It's function is to block air from coming out in case the valve is faulty.If you are unsure,go to any moto shop and check your valve.

    actually, it IS from your valve cap, but it doesn't serve any purpose except to keep your valve cap from either loosening on its own or from letting water in. if air is coming out because your valve is faulty, there's no way the valve cap's going to block it at those kinds of pressure. had an experience once where the rubber o-ring came loose and jammed up against the valve needle... came back to a flat tire.

    i junked it. it's almost unheard of for the valve cap to come off anyway, and i'd rather lose the valve cap than have a flat tire.
