Tire Compressor

What is the standard for tire compressors? Someone has a compressor and accessories stuffed into a Pelican 1120 case. The only one I can find that seems to be useable is the 300 PSI unit at klr650.com, $20.00. What are you using or want to use? Thanks.

That would be me. It's a Harbor Freight $10 special, with the plastic housing removed. It's a 300 psi pump. I'd probably get the Slime Brand Pump now, but it wasn't out yet when I did this. The Slime Brand Pump can be had for $30?$35 at Cycle Gear.

It's only rated 100 psi according to TwistedThrottle.com

I personally don't feel a pump with low output has enough to pop the bead out on a trail. With pumps like that I don't think they have in mind dual sport guys with heavy duty sidewall knobbies doing a complete tube change trail side.

I believe I've seen the Slime pump at Harbor Frieght as well... don't recall the price.

I have the slime pump. changed one tire recently with it. it did the job just fine.

however I like yours still biker. it has a pressure guage to at least get you in the ball park. slime does not have one. you have to keep checking the pressure during the fill. also its a litter bigger than yours(the pump ops: ) your is really small and compact compared to the slime model.

Thanks for the pic and vendor. klr650.com has one for $20 but it does not have all three of the power connections and I don't see it on their webpage. Makes ya wonder.
