I had what seems to be this same problem. I bought some new ones and am trying to remove the old leaky stick-on valve and it's kickin' my arse. I read online to either dip it in hot water or use a blow dryer on it and it will come off. I've done both and have only been able to pry a small corner and I feel like I'm stretching the bladder. The water I used was nearly boiling. Does anyone have any advice on how to get this darn thing off!

If it is a regular bladder and not the orange bladder ( I just don't know about those never used them) the stretching will not matter. I know with the Wainman's you have to the white plastic back to get one to stick that shit just don't peel off. So maybe it's your kite. I suggest you use the Fixmykite valves they work. Did a repair with the U-stick valve and it came off instantly. Luckily the guys from Fixmykite where down in SPI and hooked me up right there on the spot. :D .

What the f... is "Airtime valves" ???

Remember, this is an international forum reaching fully worldwide, so many have no idea what specialized local things/names is ?

"Airtime" is what ? At least not a brand I've heard of...

Kindly, Peter Frank


Way to go dude, nice way to make the world know you are both ignorant, stupid and an assshole in one short post. Perhaps you are a bigger dickk then those arrogant pricks that run kiteschools at Tampa Bay and Malibu.

Maybe I'll click on a Naish post and bitchh that I don't haven't heard what Naish is.

Airtime bladders are no better then the universally crap stock bladders that come with kites. The U-stick valves suck as well.

Poacher, great post!!!

Just to be clear Peter:
Ignorant because Airtime is fcuking everywhere.
Stupid because you think if you haven't heard of it, it most be tiny little local thing.
Assshole because of the arrogant nature of your post.

Bravo.

Don't know ??? cause I bought an Airtime valve but I had the octogonal which is the one to use on their bladders; anyway I didn't like it because it was so hard to pump... Anyway I tried to remove it and I have never been able to; even after leaving the valve in boiling water on the stove for about 2 or 3 minutes. The only thing I have achieved is to burn my hand :-)

Seriously I removed the valve and left that octogonal part on the bladder and I applied a U-Stick valve on top of it. Didn't have problem since then. One thing though; valve delaminating can be cause by something as simple as to leave your kite in a black cargo box on the top of your car. I know cause a kite dealer that I know had a lot of cases like that.

Hey lutok, super stoker has as much rights as anybody else here. Besides, he is right this time. Peter does come over quite arrogant with his passive aggressive style.
