does this thing come with the ring connectors to SAE connector (the thing that lives on the battery) ? that would be nice.

looks like a cool pump.

ill keep my eye on the sky for drone delivery.
Thanks!

Yes, the ADV Deluxe kit, $69.99 does come with the ring connectors for the battery with an SAE connector on the end. The pump's main power cord is terminated with an SAE plug. A cig to SAE and battery clips to SAE connectors are also included and all fit in the neoprene case.

Will ship out first thing tomorrow.

Rob

I got mine and it works great. A lot quieter than I expected. Pressure gauge read within a half a pound. Only problem is that I used the BMW adapter and it would work just running without connected to the tire. When I connected to the tire and it tired pumping over 40psi it was too much for the socket and CANBUS shut it down. I changed the fuse in the battery tender lead that hangs on he other side and it worked perfect. So it's a bike issue not a pump issue. I may do like some others have and wire the socket direct to the fuse block and be done with that issue.

So big thumbs up for product, speed of delivery and support of the military. Good job.

Thanks for the post. Interesting about the CAN BUS shutting down. Give it a try again at some point when the you have more run-in time on the pump. They do break in a bit and amp draw goes down, but I am surprised you only got to 40psi before the computer said no more. I have recorded 4.75 amps draw (max) at 50 psi, but I use that pump a lot for demos, etc. Of course, the battery tender tail is always good.

Got my Motopump about a month ago. This tool is great! Rob gave me an ADV discount too. I kicked myself for not taking advantage of the Motopump/Dynaplug combo. I contacted Rob and asked if he would still give me discount and he did, no problem! Thanks Rob for a great product at a fantastic price!!!!!

I had thought of that myself, let it break in some. If I was real motivated I would go and see what kind of current it's drawing. My other thought is at what current does my bike shut down? Just like everything there is a range of values that BMW considers normal operation. Is mine on the low side of the tolerance? I'm pretty sure it can't be changed without changing some hardware and it's just not that big a deal. So I guess I'll go play around with it and pump up the tires on everything in the garage! Then I'll try again. I'll let you know if it makes a difference.

Was the bike running while you were running the compressor? To my understanding, with a DC motor, if the voltage drops, the amp draw goes up.

Me, I think I need a second pump. What would have been a nice easy plug and reinflate was a big sweaty wheel swap on my truck with some VERY inconvenient timing.

After the fact, I finally got a chance to give the Dynaplug a go. Very nice piece of kit.

No the bike was not running. And yes you are correct in saying if voltage drops current goes up. It works for DC and AC by the way. One of those silly math formulas electronics are so full of.

P=I x E, or in english Power equals Current time Voltage.

Ok enough of that crap, too much like work! Or since it's the weekend, "pass me another beer!"

Ride Safe!

Ordered the 21st, on my desk now. Wow, Fast shipping.
Will be using it tomorrow as I help a traveling rider spoon on a new tire.

Looks like pretty good quality and the power cords make it very versatile.

Reports to follow.

It's arrived in Oz!

Ordered on 12 July and the package arrived 26 July in Oz.
  1. I'm very impressed - The air gauge is rock steady, and lights up
  2. The pump is actually rather quiet in comparison to any mini-pump I've used in the past
  3. The storage pouch appears strong
  4. The pump reeks of quality
  5. Glad I got the storage pouch as there is no way my fat fingers can stuff both the cord and cigarette lighter connection back in that little space
Thanks Rob! This is a bloody great product

Well I have used it on about 5 tires now, including 3 tire changes requiring the bead to be reseated. Works great!

Love the lighted gauge. Dig the LED light. Like that it fits in a compact case. Like the case and I am hoping it will hold up.

It makes the cut and will join me on my upcoming multistate trip.

Best Motorcycle Product of 2014 - Honorable mention Motorcycle.com

http://www.motorcycle.com/features/b...duct-2014.html

Pretty exciting!




By Evans Brasfield

We don’t stumble across products that perform a simple-but-necessary task that manages to stop us in our tracks very often. However, when the new Mini Pro Inflator from MotoPumps arrived just this week, we were stunned at the thought that went into this 12-volt air pump. Essentially, MotoPumps has released a product in an already well-established market, yet defined its offering through convenience, size and motorsports-focused portability.

While the 2″ x 4.75″ x 5.75″ form factor is too large to fit under most motorcycles’ seats, it will easily accommodate itself to hard or soft bags. In that neat, little package comes an LED light, an LED backlit gauge, a total of 10 feet of cable to reach your power source, and a pump capable of producing 50 psi – all weighing in at only 18 oz. Since it draws less than 5 amps, it is also CAN BUS compatible for BMW riders. A variety of connection options are available. When tested on a flat 190/50-17 rear tire, the Mini Pro inflated it from 0 psi to 36 psi in 7.5 minutes when powered from the bike’s battery.

The Mini Pro is available directly from MotoPumps as a pump only for $69.99. Spending an extra $10 for the Deluxe Kit includes a heavy-duty neoprene case, battery clips and battery terminal rings. Look for a full review of the Deluxe Kit soon, but know that we’re already very impressed with the quality of its design and execution.
