I have one. Great deal for all the stuff you get. Yes, it looks to be made in China, but it will get you out of a jam. I have actually used the pump to pump a few tires. I added a tire reamer to the kit because mine didn't come with one. Go for it. It would be nice to keep one in the glovebox also.

I don't know but look here First...

I have no experience with the pump and I am also interested in any comments from someone who has used it. Before you buy it from ebay look here: http://motopumps.com/

it is less expensive

Blessings

It is the guts removed from the $10 CH pump from Walmart. Add a couple of cheep tools and a $4 tire plug kit from Walmart, and you have it,

I kept my complete unit, and have used it several times. The motor gets very hot, and the exposed gears would hurt if you touched them while it was moving.

+1

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.

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!

Tire Plugging on the Dempster

Slime pump plugged into BMW accessory socket and a tire plugging kit.

Be aware that a steel belted tire will cut through a rubber plug, so get a vulcanized patch as soon as possible.

Sure, as long as you plug it directly into the battery. I use the Gerbing plug for mine, run off my fused and relayed fusebox, but you could use a Gerbing plug that goes directly to the battery.

The BMW plug limit is 5 amps, and the compressor is over 10, so it wont work off the BMW plug unless you have it direct to the battery or a fuse box.

Me gots one too...I have only used it on the road helping out cages and trailer tires so far...Works like a champ, but it gets very hot..too hot to place right back in the bag

I never ride without it. Use it off of my battery plug...Canbus will NOT power it.

Ok

OK sounds like again great advice here....I already have the Walmart mini pump...I can take off the plastic to make it smaller and I can buy the other stuff and have a kit...I will have to look for a nice carry box/bag for it all. I need to but a connector on the battery for this and trickle charger ...Good Advice people!

+1 on the slime pump. Got mine from Pep Boys for $25ish bucks. I've used it a couple times with good results.

+ one on the walmart pump. I use mine occasionally. I simply cut the socket on and crimped on some alligators. I then clip it to the battery of any vehicle.

I just used it the other day as my house compressor died out and I needed to air up a tire. It took a few minutes and I was back on track.

I used it on my wifes car when we were on our honeymoon out west. I removed the wheel, plugged the tire, and pumped it up with the little walmart pump. All the work took under 30 minutes which included digging out the jack.

Yeah the Canbus is weak sauce- I even had a cell phone charger kick it off.

I think Treadless has the funk for a setup in that he fabricated a small aluminum box that fits under the seat in the open space there. He hard mounted a $10 pump to the box and just runs it there. At some point when I get a little time, I'd like to fab something like that for myself.

I bought this same pump, via ebay, just like the one linked in the first post.

I've used it a lot over the past year. It has saved me at least twice with completely flat tires. I've used it a dozen times to re-up my pressure after riding off road. I carry this kit on my bike at all times, and I also have a plug kit that I've used (never used the gummy-thready-pluggy stuff as included with the pump, although I understand it may be the better option). So far, so good!

Other alternatives likely work just as well, including the Wal-Mart solution. But for $50 (inc shipping), you can have a complete setup delivered to your door w/out shopping for parts and tinkering with modifications. My cost/benefit analysis (albeit very brief) led me to click "buy it now."
