Hi all,

I'm looking into purchasing a small portable battery operated tyre inflator, considering the Xiaomi model in pic below, although just at the beginning of my research and open to any thoughts or or ideas you may have.

My friend has that, and it works.

 

 it will pump and stop at the PSI you set at.

 

By the way, you can get cheaper than that...do some research as it usually cost ~50 bucks Canadian.

I have a couple of these. Sorry, not self-contained battery, but bike battery...


Shop wide range of motorcycle puncture repair kit with fast shipping services. The repair kit is small so you can take in anywhere. Order today!

 

Hasn't let me down yet. Used it a bunch of times now. Includes a full plug kit too! (for those going tubeless)

I have the MotoPumps - Air Shot 12V Air Compressor and Stop & Go 1001 Tire Repair w/ CO2 inflator cartridges for the tubeless bikes.

 

I also have Slime 40001 Motorcycle Tire Inflator pump, which they discontinued. I left that in my Philippine home for my ADV bike there. So, I bought the above Motopump Air Shot for the USA bikes.

 

I have the  Slime 4060-A Classic Rubber Patch Kit 27-Piece for tube repairs.

 

Spare Michelin front and rear inner tubes for the T700.

I just use a cheap 12V compressor, strip the guts out it and connect up a switch on the base. I use an optimate connection on the flying lead and that plugs straight into the battery connection under the seat. This compressor is handy as has an inline pressure gauge, think the complete compressor can be bought for around £15. Complete kit fits neatly on top of the battery.

I did exactly the same with the Air man tour pump £19. just remove 

the outer casing and secure the switch to the pump , there are three

power hook ups included I use the crocodile clips to connect to the battery.

Meant to say, I did check the running current when it was pumping and took about 6amps so you do need to go direct to the battery with croc clips as you have or in my case through a 10amp fused lead. Think the bikes Aux socket is only fused at 2amp.

I like the idea of deconstruction to save space, some good options to explore, thanks guys.

I went this as its Heavy duty and has a great warranty.  Have been down the path of the stripped down cheap ones and found they dont last. This was under $60 and comes with a hard wire kit to battery.  Saves having to remove your seat to attach to power source. Also a neat neoprene bag to carry it in on the bike.

I just picked up one of these but it looks like it pulls 6-8 amps. That wont work with he OEM aux socket will it?  Any reason i cant just strip the wires of the 2 connector leads shown and plug it direct to my battery tender lead shown?

Straight to the battery is fine, but fuse at 10A at the battery terminal.

CyclePump (A Rolls Royce) top performer, rugged, life time warranty, not a cheap thing though.

Rocky Creek is a solid piece of kit. Battery tender connection. Combined with their tubeless repair tool & last resort tubes, no worries about tire troubles

I looked at and wanted the CyclePump, but i just have too many items to get to afford the top dollar stuff in every category. So cheap stuff to start with and I’ll graduate to better stuff as time goes on.

 

In any case, i did splice the 2 wire sets together and now can quick connect this pump into my battery tender 10 amp fused connector. Looks like it will work good. 

 

I had a little video of it but apparently its the wrong file type.

I use something similar to this by Slime.  Mine is practically the same only an older version.  Works well and is fast.  The kit fits well into a tail rack case and such.  Cheap too!

A few more beers and the tyre won’t be the only thing punctured 😊
