    Default Best Recommended Motorcycle Air Pump and Plug Kit

    During this National Emergency and CDCís health guidelines, Iíll be spending more time indoors - so I might as well do some online shopping.

    As far as bike air pump and plug kit is concerned that I can carry with me, what most of you recommend that is proven to be the most reliable for years to come...

    What about something smaller that would work for a long trip? a Cigarette connector/battery connector or with a battery.

    I have a "Stop & Go" tire plugging kit with CO2 cartridges for tire inflation. To be honest, I regard it as a magical talisman to prevent flats! As long as I am prepared, nothing will happen.

    Evidently, the guy did a test of plug in types before and he compared the winner of that comparison to the battery operated compressors in the attached video. The winner was the Harbor Freight compressor. I couldn't find the plug in comparison when I searched his site.

    That looks very nice and it comes with its own small bag for storage.

    I carry a foot operated bicycle pump from Walmart. Doesnít take much space and no battery worries. Donít know how long it takes to pump up a tire because Iím prepared so I wonít need it.
    Faded Blue is the fastest.

    I have a similar Viair as this only with the alligator clips to attach to the battery instead of the 12V plugin. I bought it for pumping up the tires on my fifth wheel. It is an awesome little rig and can top up my tires in less than a minute. Doesnít get hot and packs nicely into its own case. Do a Google search. I donít remember the actual model number but Viair is the brand most recommended for rvíers. Doug

    Funny story. I had been using the slime brand pump and I got Metz 888 rear tire. It called for 50psi. I plugged my trusty slime pump into the valve and it immediately started making disintegration noises. I had kept the warranty card and noticed I was still in warranty. I called slime customer service and they told me their standard unit will not handle 50psi. So they sent me the upgraded unit for free. I just looked online and I donít see my unit being sold anymore.

    What you want is something that wont take up a lot of space in your saddlebags yet inflates tires quickly.
    Here is my recommendation.

    At any rate, I am settled with the Dewalt pump Max20V Lithium Ion. I like its performance on the review and I have several battery 20V Max 6 amp packs on hand already. Thanks all for your input.
