Just go buy the pump from WalMart and all of the accessories/tools. Everything shown in that pick can be purchased at Wal-Mart. Or better yet, what I did was buy the small pump and tire patch kit, but carry much better tools. I also carry a BMW plug to standard plug so that I can plug in whatever I need to the bike (I have a battery tester that I also plug in). I would also pick up a better air guage than that cheap one.
