12v tyre pump
on: June 19, 2020, 01:04:21 PM
Hi guys looking for a few suggestions for buying a small 12v tyre pump to carry with me instead of co2 canisters, don't use rucksack or top box just a small bag on my rack with my waterproofs and few tools and puncture kit.  :763:

I carry the Airman pump. Not the smallest out there but its output and robustness sold it for me . . . plus the fact that many long distance travelling pals cary them helped  :152:

Not the cheapest, but one best 12v pumps out there is the "Cyclepump" from bestrest motorcycles.
I'd suggest to give it a look.

i got a rac pump which looks like the one in crispenator post but without the pouch. 
thought i would check how accurate the gauge is before its needed and when the needle points to 50psi there is 38psi in the tyre and 55 psi is 42psi.
(my tyres would be under inflated if i hadn't checked before using it)

so check how accurate your air pump gauge is.

Yes, get a CyclePump. A little more expensive, but will last and withstand abuse and is guaranteed if it fails. My old one started rattling after about 12 years - still worked but was getting long in the tooth, so I sent it to Dave, the owner of BestRest, and he replaced. Cost me about $30 to get it fixed, but after a dozen years no complaints.

Iíve never been to a garage to air my tyres since buying one of these.

I have a Slime Power Sport, model 40001 from 2012 (lower right in photo). It still works fine. It fits under the seat (in the center pouch, behind the fuse box) after trimming away the plastic dividers with a sharp knife.

I use the air hawk, bulky but works with battery or 12v socket.
I like it,
