North airport valve

Postby Aberdovy kiter » Mon Sep 14, 2020 2:58 pm

Having to replace the valve on my 2015 13m rebel, the problem i had was that when the kite was fully inflated the pump hose got stuck in the valve, the only way to release it was to twist the valve beyond it's normal operation, once i was able to release the hose it would loose about a couple of psi, after doing this for a couple of times the valve was knackered, the shut off failed completely, just wondering if this is a common fault is there some maintenance that i can do with the replacement valve?

Not sure what your problem is based on your description (Did you possibly use a non-North/Duotone pump?) but this link might be of help as its a similar problem:
