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.
Dude, that is very cool that you have gotten noticed. I have only used mine once or twice to test it. Its a slick unit for sure. No matter what motorcycle I own this thing is going with me. I bought the dyna plug tool also. Just a little extra insurance and I feel like its a real quality piece you are selling because of how accurate the psi guage is. From my tests, it was just spot nuts on. Good product for sure.

Please advise me if I'm wrong, but every pic I've seen of your very well thought out product shows what I feel is a glaring deficiency: the plug is a cigarette lighter type ONLY, rather than a more useful Powerlet/cigarette combo plug. Such a plug would make this pump a 3-bagger, and me about $70 poorer.

Happy to add a combo cig plug / BMW plug for you. We are working on a second production run right now with the factory and one of the changes is that plug. For those that need a BMW plug right now, I am happy to add one. Just purchase and shoot me a note and I will make it happen.

Thanks!

NOW you're onto something!

Thanks, I don't need one quite that urgently, but I'll certainly order one when that next production run is ready to go.

It seems like your pump includes everything but a trailside tire tech.

We did some experimentation for this next run and found that if we reduced the size much it was difficult to get the pump in and out, and many folks like having the separate compartment. The majority of the feedback was to not change the size.

If you feel yours is too large, it is easy to make it smaller. Turn the case inside out and cut off the extra compartment and/or move the seam further up and remove the excess material, turn the case right-side out again and done.

I've come around on the size of the case. I find it nice to not tuck the cords into the minimalist onboard compartment, just wrap them up on the outside, and tuck it in the case. Makes for much quicker deployment and repacking. If I'm carrying it on the bike when luggage space and weight is at a premium, then I probably won't be using the case at all.

Size is just right.

Naw. Leave the case as is.
I find it to be the correct size and particularly like the bottom storage area.
Of course, YMMV as is the case in all things...

used one on a recent ride and I liked it, so I just ordered one.

Do you know the maximum pressure it will produce in cases of hard to seat tire beads like the Heidenau of Mefo?
We ran it well beyond the gage reading before the bead popped on.

Yup, those beads are tough. I have only tested the pump to 25% over 50 psi, which is ~62.5 psi. Not sure how far it will go or when it will stall the motor...

I am continually impressed with the pump. We are working on a few small changes for the second production run, and happily none of them are mechanical changes. The pump doesn't need them.
