This thread has just prompted me to dig out an old pump I have.
I'm gonna solder some wire to supply power & I recon I'll fuse it as well.

I'd like an answer to the original poster's question - Will this be OK to use with the CANbus?

I wouldn't like to immobilise my bike when the time comes to use the pump.

Mine's got a pressure gauge as well!
