    Tyre Valves

     Has anyone found that the thread on the tyre valves on the SE are quite short? I have a compressor (the type that plugs into the car to inflate tyres) that when I screw onto the valve on the TTSE doesn't go far enough on and leads to air leaking. this escalates and sets the TPMS / tyre pressure warning light on the dash. When I inspected the valve I see that it is significantly shorter than any valve I have seen before.  :034:

    I haven't had any issue with the valve threads - without actually measuring the threaded area on the valve stems, I'd say they're adequate.  I've used compressors with a screw-on (threaded) connection and the clamp-on type with no issues in either case.

    Is it possible you had it slightly crossed on the threads?

    So far I've only used the 'push on and hold' type of connector, no problems with those so far,....I do have a screw on type, I'll have to check that now.

    Could it be that the threaded "Valve Cap" type fitting
    of your pump is a bit too long for the Trophy Valve stems  ?

    It might be possible to shave a few millimetres off the end and get it to fit better ?   :084:

    Cheers  :821:

    Resolved. I've just bought a Oasser P1 mini inflator to keep in the topbox when travelling. It's nice and small so takes up hardly any room, powerful enough to inflate both tyres and is cordless, it can be charged either by mains or run straight from the topbox or glove box power sockets. It is easily preset to your required pressure and has a couple of LED lights. Seems a good bit of kit. More importantly it's a push fit so no worries about thread length.
    Keep it shiny side up and rubber side down
