Valve pullers are awesome. I have large hands and find it nearly impossible to change a tyre without one. 

 

Bead buddy's are the other essential kit IMHO. Makes it so much easier to pop the tyre on with it holding the tyre in the well properly

Cripes! What is the diameter of the brass bit that is supposed to go through the valve hole?

That sucks! I have a cheapy from Torpedo7 - just tried to find it on their site as they definitely fit TTR Rims but they don't list them any more. Typical.

 

Mine is like this

 

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/310275908985
 
The brass bit that goes through the hole in the rim looks much smaller with this type than the type you bought Johnnyboy. With the type in my link above you remove the valve core first and it does up in that thread. They type you bought (in DLE22s link) looks like it does up on the thread that the cap uses which would make the valve too wide. With my type (and the type Brian listed) the tool is no wider than a standard valve. Make sense?

your correct my friend it screws on to the valve where the dust cap fits so it is too large

You have to weigh up whether it's worth it IMHO. How much are you out of pocket? You can raise a case with eBay if you want to but if the ad didn't say the device definitely fits the ttr you're up the creek. You could drill out the valve hole larger but then it would fill with crap. As it's a cheap item I'd just cut my losses and buy one of the other type.

If the dude has been rude and pissed you off, raise the case. Otherwise take it as a learning experience and move on.

There are 2 types... one screws over the valve stem the other screws in the valve stem..
the one that screws IN the valve stem is the one to get..
