Sure sounds like to me the black one couldn't get it up, even with a pump... Do they have limp handguards, too?

I always run mine off an SAE cord wired directly to the battery, no issues yet.

Good fer you guys. I'm kinda a minimalist, I want bikes pretty much stock & bulletproof dependable as I barely know a wrench from a Iphone. But finding out a air pump'll blow the fuse on a Tenere when yer WAAAY back in Idaho backroads ain't my idea of a good time. Wish I'd known. Took me a while to find & change fuses. Anyway, dependability is why I dumped my GS12 & gotta Tenere. I like bulletproof bikes that go FAST--why I gotta black one.

Did you use the accessory outlet to power the pump? If so that's the problem right there, it's only rated for light usage like charging cellphones.

I have both. Received the WASP one but decided to go a different direction. PM me if interested in either.

As I understand, EVERYBODY got mufflers that comply with the US EPA rules and it's easy to check. Look past the rear tire at your muffler and look close at the text to see if it says "EPA." It is here:

Having done the paperwork etc, they do not give a shit what it is like as long as you do not leave it in the US

One of the conditions is that you send them proof of export and keep that proof for a further 2 years.
