Folks, I've been struggling to find a proper (as in working all the time) air compressor for my 1200GS. There are many sites out there selling mini compressors, some of them have reviews that would make you run the other way. I don't want to carry a normal 12v compressor with me when I go touring, although I probably could make some space.
Yeah, I can see that. I was desperately hoping I could let someone else do the hard yards rather than getting sweaty over 4 missing PSIs.
How long would you need to be a slave to the pump to get 1 PSI ?
Thanks folks for your replies.
I've never timed it. Please keep in mind that it's a low volume pump meant for emergency use. It's taken two or three minutes to pump a flat tire up to around 35 lbs, or 2.4 bars. I've used it occasionally, when traveling, to put a little air in so my best guess would be thirty seconds for pound of air.
