Carry mine with me everyhwhere I ride. Has saved me twice on the roadside and countless "oh ****" moments discovering nails in the tire in the garage...:10::iagree:
I've had mine so long (about 10 years) that i can't remember. I know it's a kit that came with the plug gun, rubber mushroom plugs, a reamer tool and all in a nice heavy vinyl pouch.Which set do you use?
my only issue with the kit is that I would like to know how well the compressor works.. it looks small enough to fit somewhere on the bike (hoping under the seat), but would like to hear from other people how well it works.I also bought to compact Slim mini compressor but can't find one on fleabay at the moment.
Thought the one you linked was expensive but realise it includes the compressor so makes it better value.
Thanks Clem! Did not know really look into a foot pump before.. thought they would be too big ... the link for the OEM one does not have any size indicated, will try to find that, the other one does and it seems very doable!1 option: As you know, the electric pumps pull too much power to be used in the accessory plug. Needs an optional fuse panel. Advantage is small size, but moves only a small amount of air. Could weaken/kill battery in winter. Just for your information, BMW makes a Mini foot pump. Nippy Normans sells one, too. Three-four minutes to pump up a tire,about the same. It's Larger.
