Guess you should have your engine running when you use an electric air pump?

    I am sure you all are laughing, but lets just say I came to find out Yuasa no want to start bike today after air pump usage. :cry
    -Could have been that face but, instead, I was actually somewhere in Ocala Natl forest where there were some people and was able to get a push after help changing the tube so :clap

    Need a new tire, was hoping I could squeak a couple more rides in . Sorry, bought a Fastway Stabilizer instead! Which made today fun in some deep sand and blowing out the rear tire constantly on the dirt forest roads :wink: Love my 950.

    I had to loan my jump leads to the Police on Thursday as they had flattened the battery on their van!

    yea, didnt have any of those. Would like some kind of battery pack though that could hook up and give it some juice just so you could get started and on your way. battery is 4 years old and hooked to the trickle charger it shows fully charged after about 15 minutes, but suppose it could also have some low cells in it. Maybe if it was new it could stand the drain?
